Can the BMW X1 hybrid charge its battery?

Reading your review of the BMW X1 plug-in hybrid, can you advise if the engine can charge the drive battery as that battery is the only source of power for the four-wheel drive?

Hi Barry, 

Yes it can. You can toggle through various modes with the eDrive button on the centre console to the Save Battery setting and then the engine combines with regenerative braking to charge up the battery.
