BMW 545e xDrive Home Charging Guide

The BMW 5 Series is often the saloon of choice for fleet managers, alongside the 3 Series of course, but it's a very compelling choice in its own right. This high-spec plug-in hybrid option features an 80kW motor powered by an 11.6kWh battery for an all-electric range of 35 miles. When that's gone, you'll have a 3.0-litre petrol engine for use on its own or in conjunction with the battery and electric motor for hybrid performance. 

Charging the BMW 545e xDrive from zero to full using a 7.4kW charger takes three-and-a-half hours on average.
