BMW 530e XDrive Saloon Home Charging Guide

For years the BMW 5 series has been an incredibly popular choice for people who are looking to drive in luxury. And now, with the 530e XDrive Saloon plug-in hybrid, drivers can enjoy that same level of luxury whilst also benefitting from the improved fuel economy and reduced tailpipe emissions. Equipped with a 12kW battery, the 530e XDrive Saloon can travel up to 29 miles with zero tailpipe emissions on a single charge. When the battery runs out, the BMW 530e XDrive Saloon utilises a 2.0 litre petrol engine to keep it going.

Charging the BMW 530e XDrive Saloon using a 7.4kW home charger takes around three and a half hours.
