Reasons to Purchase BMW All-Electric Vehicle at BMW of Schererville
Whether you are looking to be on the cutting-edge of car technology, need to make your daily commute quicker by riding in the HOV lane, or want to pay less in maintenance, an all-electric vehicle might be the right choice for you. Below are a few of the top reasons buyers choose an electric car and turn their everyday drives into an electrifying rush.
The future of driving is here. The main difference between an electric vehicle and a plug-in hybrid is simply that the all-electric vehicle (EV) is powered exclusively by an electric motor.
Plug-in hybrids have dual power systems and use both an electric motor and a gasoline engine. A BMW all-electric vehicle means you no longer have to spend time, energy, or money at the gas pump (up to $1,999 a year!) and instead use your time to do the things you love.
As a BMW driver, you may be concerned about compromising torque, agility, and maneuverability when it comes to the all-electric models. We can assure you that when you get behind the wheel of an all-electric model, you will experience the instant torque and acceleration of the electric motor.
In fact, you will experience the same amount of torque going from 0 mph or 60 mph. Don’t take our word for it. We encourage you to take a test drive and see how this dynamic-driving-powerhouse handles the road with complete grace and near-perfect balance.
BMW is on a mission to make the “greenest” electric car. How does the all-electric BMW help support that? All-electric vehicles produce no carbon dioxide emissions when driving, and by reducing Co2 emissions, we can reduce climate change and air pollution. BMW also uses 100% green electricity at its plants so that no unnecessary emissions are created during production.
Batteries no longer meeting driving requirements are not sent to a landfill. Instead, BMW recycles batteries by sending them to a sustainable power factory in Hamburg to help recycle electricity surplus. If you want to feel good about driving your next vehicle, take a closer look at an all-electric BMW.
When you think of an all-electric vehicle, you may have questions about how long a single charge will last and how this may impact your driving plans. With a BMW all-electric vehicle, a single charge provides you with a driving range of up to 324 miles (depending on the model, driving style, temperature, traffic conditions, etc.).
And, if you are running low, you can charge on the go with total convenience. In fact, BMW all-electric vehicles receive two years of complimentary 30-minute charging sessions at any of the thousands of BMW charging stations nationwide. Or, use your complimentary Flexible Fast Charger to plug in your all-electric BMW at a 120V or 240V outlet.
When you decide to purchase an all-electric vehicle from BMW of Schererville, we understand it’s a hefty investment. However, when you consider total ownership from the purchase price, fueling costs, and maintenance expenses, EVs can save you over $4,500 or more in the first several years — including up to $1,999 in fuel savings alone than their gasoline-powered counterparts.
Owning an all-electric BMW may also make you eligible for a federal tax credit for up to $7,500 in addition to other possible state incentives, including rebates, tax credits, and grants.
BMW has been manufacturing and sourcing batteries for EVs for nearly ten years and has experience developing technology and progressing batteries.
While temperature, age, and other environmental and driving factors influence battery life, BMW will offer you peace of mind by providing an 8-year/100,000-mile battery warranty — whichever comes first — that covers battery repairs or replacements at no cost to you when you handle your repair at an authorized BMW center like BMW of Schererville.
BMW wants to keep you and your most precious cargo safe, and that’s why safety comes first at BMW. All BMW electric vehicles are equipped with the latest safety technology, including advanced sensors, radars, and cameras to monitor surroundings and the road ahead.
Advanced safety features include emergency braking with pedestrian detection, cross-traffic alerts, blind-spot monitoring, parking assistance, lane-departure warning, and more. Are you interested in learning more about any of these features? Contact one of our sales team experts today.
