If you want to add some efficiency to your daily drives around Laguna Beach, but aren’t ready to make the leap into a full hybrid or plug-in hybrid model, BMW has a solution. With the lineup of mild-hybrid BMW models at Irvine BMW, you can have an unintrusive hybrid experience that helps save fuel without adding too much weight to your vehicle.

What is a Mild Hybrid System?

Unlike traditional and plug-in hybrid models that require large battery packs and full-size electric motors, a mild-hybrid system is incredibly simple and lightweight. A small electric motor is attached to the transmission, helping add torque at the low-end to improve acceleration and take the burden off of your combustion engine. The mild hybrid system can also help maintain a cruising speed while in the city, once again taking responsibility away from the combustion engine. These factors help save fuel, especially in stop and go driving scenarios, but they don’t have such a big impact on performance thanks to their low weight and in-line setup. Regenerative braking can recharge the system, requiring less power from your combustion engine to keep the batteries going, once again making efficiency and simplicity a high point of the mild hybrid.

Mild-Hybrid BMW Models

There are several BMW models that get the mild-hybrid treatment, including popular options like the BMW 3 Series and 5 Series sedans, along with the 4 Series and 6 Series coupes. You can also find mild-hybrid tech in the full lineup of BMW SUVs, including the X3 and X5 models, along with the three-row BMW X7. No matter which you choose, you’ll find luxury, smooth performance, and enhanced efficiency.
