Introducing the BMW 7 Series Plug-in Hybrid
A cut above the rest, the BMW 7 Series Plug-in Hybrid is as exquisite as it is efficient. Undeniably luxurious, like the traditionally powered 7 Series, the plug-in model is crafted to perfection.
Driving pleasure has been enhanced, with the ability to drive in pure electric mode for up to 34 miles. Meanwhile, the level of sophistication remains equivalent to the petrol and diesel 7 Series.
Available as a long wheelbase version too, the 7 Series Plug-in Hybrid is delightfully breath-taking in every way.
Range and Performance
Gliding from 0 to 62mph in 5.1 seconds, the 745le xDrive Saloon is just a fraction faster than the 745e Saloon, which achieves the same sprint in 5.2 seconds
A seamless amalgamation of the BMW TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder petrol engine and the BMW eDrive electric motor delivers an astonishing combined power output of 389bhp, which firmly places the PHEV models mid-range in terms of performance.
Fuel consumption figures range from 104.6 to 141.2mpg across the two plug-in models and they can achieve a fully-electric range of up to 34 miles. The pure electric driving mode results in zero emissions and a cost-effective way of handling shorter journeys.
Remarkably, when charging the 7 Series Plug-in Hybrid Saloons, the battery can reach 80 percent of its full charge capacity in under 2.6 hours. That is a similar charging time to the latest smartphones.
The simplest charging method is at home using either a standard household plug socket or the dedicated BMW i Wallbox.
Whilst on the move you can call at one of the many public charging stations located around the UK to provide your 7 Series with a boost.
Impressively, you can even search for a nearby charging station using the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant. Charge level, duration, charging current and remaining electric range are visible on the instrument panel.

After all, it is a 7 Series.
