What's the Difference Between a Hybrid and a Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV)?


  • A vehicle is hybrid if it's 100% gasoline-fueled but doesn't rely solely on its gasoline engine for propulsion (defined as the action of driving or pushing forward). Hybrids have electric motors that sometimes power the car in order to delay the gasoline engine and save fuel. At times, both systems work together for added power. Electric motors function as generators when you press the brake.
  • Hybrids get energy at the same time from a gasoline engine and an electric motor. The engine and motor work together to power the car. The engine also uses gasoline to help recharge the battery which powers the electric motor.
  • Hybrids use gasoline engines to keep batteries charged as you drive. There is no need to plug them in.

Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV)

  • PHEV's use a gasoline engine and an electric motor, but in different ways. A plug-in hybrid primarily uses its electric motor, which is powered by the battery. A plug-in hybrid won't use gas until the battery runs out of power. A plug-in hybrid uses its engine as a backup plan.
  • PHEV's can be plugged into a 120-volt household outlet or a 240-volt charging unit (or wall charger). A plug in-hybrid can be driven on pure electric power without burning any fuel.
  • A PHEV has a much larger battery and a means to recharge it using an external power source. A PHEV acts like an electric vehicle with the gasoline engine not being used when it's battery has to charge. The engine comes on when the battery runs down which allows the vehicle to continue as a regular gasoline hybrid. It also uses regenerative braking to save fuel.

Charging Your BMW: How and Where?

If you're not sure how long it takes to charge your BMW, the simplest answer is that it depends on the type of charging equipment that you use, and the electric installation that you have at your home. BMW recommends to purchase and install the BMW Wallbox, which can charge your BMW up to three times faster. To ensure your BMW's peak performance and enhance the efficiency of your plug-in hybrid or electric car and SUV, BMW offers BMW Charging, which is the advanced, comprehensive charging program that offers tailored solutions for both home and public charging.

Compatible with any standard 120V home outlet.

Catch a charge at any power outlet with the Occasional Use Cable, included as standard with every BMW plug-in hybrid.

*Comes standard with every electric BMW purchase. No additional equipment needed.

Optimized charging at home via 240V wallbox.

Install a BMW Wallbox in your home for fast charging between daily drives. With the BMW Wallbox, you can fully charge the battery of your BMW plug-in hybrid three times faster than with the Occasional Use Cable.

*Purchase separately. You can order a BMW Wallbox here. Requires hardwired installation and may require electrical upgrades depending on your electrical panel capacity.

On-the-go and public charging.

BMW's partnership with EVgo gives you access to more than 35,000 Level 2 chargers nationwide through your BMW Charging app. And with the BMW TwinPower Turbo engine, you can be assured that your plug-in hybrid has the range to get you where you want to go.

*For public charging within Chicagoland, we've seen average prices of $1-$4 for about 2 hours of charging time. However, it depends on the individual unit's owner to determine pricing.
