What’s the Difference Between Hybrid and Electric Vehicles?

2022 BMW ix in red parked near ocean

 

People are becoming more and more conscious about protecting the environment, and so have many of the biggest automotive companies in the world. When people come to our Tenafly dealership looking for an environmentally friendly vehicle they often ask what’s the difference between a hybrid and electric vehicle. It’s actually quite simple. An electric runs solely on a charged battery, while the hybrid can be driven with both gasoline-powered engines and battery power.

We sell both a BMW electric car and BMW hybrid cars for all sorts of drivers who want to drive a little greener. Our BMW plug-in hybrid vehicles and electric cars can give a little back to the environment but still give you a thrilling driving experience in Fort Lee. If you’re interested in a BMW electric car or our inventory of BMW hybrid cars, come by our Tenafly dealership and test drive them for yourself. Also, reach out to our finance center to see what financial options you have available!

BMW Hybrid Cars vs. BMW Electric Cars

Even though we covered a little of the basics above, let’s go a little deeper into what are BMW plug-in hybrid cars and new BMW electric cars.

Hybrid Cars

BMW Hybrid plug-in vehicles are gas-powered. Unlike traditional gas-powered vehicles, BMW hybrid cars aren’t fully powered on gas engines to generate power. Accompanying the gas engine in hybrid vehicles is a second electric motor. The gas engine and electric motor work together to provide power as you drive through Cresskill, allowing for significant improvements in gas mileage. The BMW hybrid plug-in cars selection includes:

Electric Cars

A new BMW electric car or vehicle (EV) runs solely on electric power, like the BMW iX and BMW i4. There is no engine, only a battery, and an electric motor. The battery in EVs is much larger than in hybrids because it plays a more significant role in providing power for the vehicle to run. Electric vehicles can be plugged into a home or public charging station to charge the battery. Depending on how much charge the battery has, the mileage range you have to work within an electric vehicle will vary.
