Can I save by going electric?

At just 4p per mile, the BMW i3 costs a lot less to run than petrol or diesel cars. And with it being around three quarters cheaper to charge your car, it means you can travel more and spend less which means more time for adventures to be had. Thanks to the BMW i3 ‘Category 1’ government rating, the BMW I3 is eligible for a £2,500 grant towards the purchase price.
And, if you’re thinking about going Electric for your business car, then you’ll be happy to hear there’s a 2% BIK rate during the 2022/2023 tax year.
Electric motors, like the one found inside our electric range are less complex than their combustion relatives. This means there’s less wear and tear and maintenance can be kept to a minimum. And to help even more when it’s time for a service, we can help you keep costs down further with our simple pay monthly plans.

Discover the hundreds of places you can charge your BMW, MINI Electric or CE 04, from your driveway, to the supermarket and even shopping centres. We have included everything you need to know about both home and public charging below.
Most charging happens at home. It can be done either overnight or between each journey.
The best most safe simple and tailored home charging can be done with the BP Pulse Wallbox. Charge your car up to 70% faster than a conventional 3-pin socket. If you’re not yet to have one of these installed simply use your normal three-pin outlet and power up while you relax at home or overnight while you sleep.
What’s more you can also benefit from a government grant towards your wall box of £350 if you have a driveway. To find out more about the BP Pulse Wallbox please click here to visit their website.
