BMW Group Malaysia today announced its newest PHEV Battery Warranty Programme for all its BMW and MINI Plug-in Hybrid Vehicle (PHEV) variants.
The current 6-years/100,000 km warranty has been extended to 8-years/160,000km (whichever comes first). The package applies to models like the BMW 330e, X5 xDrive40e, 530e M Sport, 740Le and MINI Countryman PHEV.
For existing PHEV variant owners, there is an option to upgrade to the extended warranty for a fee. As for 330e, X5 xDrive40e, 530e M Sport and MINI Countryman PHEV, owners can opt to upgrade for RM2,200 while 740Le owners will be charged RM7,600.
The PHEV Battery Warranty Programme is available from now until 31st December.
Regarding the same matter, BMW Group Malaysia also recently announced that the battery modules in its PHEV variants can be individually replaced; resulting in substantial reduction in cost of replacement compared to replacing an entire battery module.
Eu Jin, Do a follow up with BMW on how many warranty claims they have done so far? Plus does the reduction of capacity over 30% after 5 years use constitute failure or “wear & tear”? Since BMW is one of those brands pushing for EV in Malaysia. Car buyers must know how these principals handle battery issues. Thanks
For Countryman PHEV model, anyone know roughly cost if change of new battery after warranty period?
