Make the most of your BMW X5 by charging your car at home. The X5 can charge at up to 3.7kW per hour, but a standard three pin plug is not able to charge at this rate. By installing a dedicated home charging point, you can charge your BMW X5 up to 2 times faster and gain up to 15 miles of driving per hour of charge. Making sure your BMW plug-in hybrid is charged means you can take advantage of pure electric mode for up to 30 miles of quiet, clean and stress-free city driving.
