Are you interested in its CO2 emissions? 78 grams per kilometer traveled.

During an all‑electric drive, the lithium‑ion batteries power the electric motor, which in turn powers all four wheels through the eight‑speed Steptronic gearbox, but the maximum speed is reduced to 120 km/h. Charging is possible from a socket at home, or through BMW's Wallbox. Charge time? Under three hours.
