Sustainable mobility begins with sustainable energy generation. This is why the BMW ActiveE field trial is supporting the use of electricity from renewable sources.


The energy for the BMW ActiveE comes from the mains socket. In theory, this can be the same socket you use to power your lawnmower. However, the recharging process is much faster at public charging stations or using a wallbox, which our partners will install in your garage, for example. Within 4 to 5 hours, the BMW Active E is “full” – with energy for up to 160 kilometres of environmentally friendly driving pleasure.

One hundred per cent freedom from emissions is the objective: Our aim with the BMW ActiveE is not only to supply an emission-free vehicle, but also to use energy generated without any emissions. In the case of your own wallbox, you have the option of obtaining electricity from renewable sources via your energy provider. And where possible, the public charging stations will also be supplied with energy from regenerative production. That is genuine sustainability.

By the way, one single wind converter from the now widespread megawatt class produces enough electricity for several hundred BMW ActiveE vehicles – and this with an annual mileage of 17,000 km per vehicle.
