BMW's popular electric cars have received a lot of negative attention recently. A lot of consumers feel that these cars are substandard and do not perform as well as they are advertised to. In fact, some consumers will go as far as threatening to cancel their BMW warranty if the company does not improve their performance. However, it is important to understand that the performance of any vehicle will depend on how it is maintained. In this article we will take a look at some facts about BMW electric cars and why they are superior to other brands.
First off, what makes a BMW superior to other brands? The major factor in the quality of any car is how well it is maintained. With the way most BMWs get maintained by the factory, you can be sure that you will get the best possible performance for your car. If you drive a BMW regularly then it is even more important to keep it in good condition because the longer you let a BMW to get away with; the worse its performance will become.
For example, you would want your battery to be charged when you have maximum driving miles. However, the majority of electric car owners do not charge their batteries to their maximum potential and as a result their vehicles lose more power as the battery runs down. BMW's batteries have very advanced safety features such as Smart Traction Control, Anti-lock Brake System, Vehicle Stability Assist and Brake Assist, which mean that they only work when the driver is taking active steps with the steering wheel. This means that you can be guaranteed of additional advantages when your battery is fully charged.
An electric BMW is also superior because it has fewer parts which need maintenance. As well as the battery, the electric motor is also much easier to service than a gas engine BMW. The electric motor is mounted very high, which makes it easy to access. In addition, the motor is a lot smaller than a gas motor and this makes it much easier to repair. All in all, an electric BMW is much cheaper to run, has less mechanical parts which means that it requires less servicing and requires a shorter recovery time after a failure.
The efficiency of an electric BMW means that emissions are much lower than a typical fuel powered car. The biggest advantage is that an electric BMW runs silently without disturbing the surrounding environment. It also uses very little energy and as a result the running costs are very economically friendly. The battery is sealed within a highly efficient aluminum cylinder which allows the cylinder to only hold a charge whilst the electric motor is running, allowing the battery to be fully charged during a driving session.
An electric BMW is suitable for any road user who wishes to travel to work, from young students to senior citizens. Because it is so eco-friendly, an electric BMW is also highly competitive on the market. BMW makes sure that there are many variants of the E Series which all provide the same basic performance.
