If you have an electric car, do you have range anxiety? Or, maybe that’s the very reason you have yet to make the final leap and purchase an electric car. Well, you no longer have anything to fear! BMW has come up with a solution, gas-powered loaners for your long trips.
So, you might be asking, “What exactly is ‘range anxiety’?” It’s the fear of running out of electricity before you reach your final destination. This is much the same as running out of fuel except for one tiny problem; there aren’t electric charging stations on every corner, as there are with gas stations!
BMW is trying to banish range anxiety with their new gas-powered loaner cars. When you need to take a long trip, BMW will loan you a gas-powered car. BMW is planning to make the loaner vehicle a package deal with the electric car ownership experience, so hopefully, you will not have to pay separately each time you need a loaner.
A variety of questions have been brought up regarding such a program, but for the time being, it’s a great solution until the electric car infrastructure grows in the U.S. For more information on the new loaner program, feel free to contact our local Pittsburgh Pennsylvania BMW dealership, P&W BMW.
