BMW 745e Home Charging Guide
BMW's flagship 7-Series saloon saw some major revisions in 2019, with the German carmaker seeking to top the luxury wishlist once again. But the biggest change comes in the form of a larger 12kWh battery pack, which is enough to give this sedate beast an electric range of about 36 miles. The relatively low CO2 emissions (for a car in this class) of 48g/km results in a generous benefit-in-kind rate of 12% which should appeal to company car drivers.
Charging time for the BMW 745e is about 3.5 hours from empty to full when using a dedicated 7.4kW home charge point.
