Our Favourite BMW Hybrid and Electric Cars


Our Favourite BMW Hybrid and Electric Cars

Electric and hybrid cars are becoming ever more popular as people become more eco-conscious and aware of the benefits of EVs. There are now nearly 500,000 pure electric cars on the road in the UK and another 385,000 plug-in hybrid models.

With impending bans on internal combustion vehicle sales, many manufacturers have announced their intentions to go all-electric in the next decade. BMW has a long history of creating high-performance cars, and its motto is "the ultimate driving machine", so no surprise its hybrid and electric vehicles are exceptional.

If you're looking for a great hybrid or electric car, BMW has some excellent options to choose from. At Tilsun Leasing, we're big fans of the BMW hybrid and electric range. We've put together a list of our favourite models so that you can find the perfect BMW lease today.

The Best BMW Plug-In Hybrid Models

BMW has long been a leader in the world of luxury automobiles, and its reputation for quality and performance is well deserved. In recent years, BMW has also become a pioneer in plug-in hybrid technology, offering several models that combine an efficient fuel engine with an electric motor.

If you're not entirely up to date with the latest developments in electric and hybrid cars, a plug-in hybrid uses both a combustion engine and an electric motor. As the name suggests, you charge the electric motor by plugging your hybrid in. Plug-in hybrid models are often seen as the middle ground between traditional combustion engine vehicles and pure electric driving.

Here are some of the best models in the BMW plug-in hybrid range available now:

BMW X2 Hatchback xDrive 25e

BMW's X2 Hatchback xDrive 25e is a versatile and stylish vehicle perfect for city driving.
