Expanding BMW 5 Series - BMW 530E iPerformance Plug-in Hybrid Model
|   Tuesday, January 24, 2017
In March 2017, just weeks after the launch of the latest generation BMW 5 Series, a plug-in hybrid variant will join the portfolio of the most successful business sedan in the world.

The BMW 530E iPerformance is a sporty sedan that offers the dynamic driving experience for which the brand is famous, combined with the possibility of driving exclusively in electric mode with zero emissions. The fuel consumption of 1.9 l / 100 km is equivalent to a CO2 emission rating of just 44 g / km.

The BMW 530E iPerformance is the most innovative model in its class and offers the entire portfolio of driver assistance systems available for the BMW 5 Series - in all modes, including eDrive.

As a source of power, the BMW eDrive technology is combined with the petrol engine BMW TwinPower Turbo to create a strong and very efficient hybrid plug-in propulsion system that fits perfectly with the dynamic and efficient profile of the new BMW 5 Series. The iPerformance label attached to all plug-in hybrid models from BMW's portfolio show the transfer of knowledge from BMW to its main brand cars. The BMW 530E iPerformance is the sixth member of iPerformance's portfolio models, which has been shown a success among customers.

The electric motor of the BMW eDrive system has an output of 70 kW / 95 hp and provides maximum torque of 250 Nm, while the four-cylinder combustion engine with a displacement of 2.0 liters generates 135 kW / 184 hp and 320 Nm of torque. Due to the combination of the two engines, the CO2 emissions of the BMW 530E iPerformance remain at a very low level of 44 g / km in the test cycle. Total system power of 185 kW / 252 hp and maximum torque of 420 Nm propel the BMW 530E iPerformance from 0 to 100 km / h in 6.2 seconds and enables a top speed of 235 km / h.

The BMW 530E iPerformance has a range of up to 650 kilometers in the real world and is able to cover distances up to 50 kilometers at a maximum speed of 140 km / h in pure electric mode. The power of the electric motor and the power of combustion engine are directed to the rear axle via an eight-speed Steptronic transmission, available as standard. The positioning of the electric motor, before the transmission, allows the transaxle gear to be used in electric only mode. This eliminates the need for a torque converter which compensates for the additional weight of a supplementary motor.

The high voltage battery pack consists of lithium-ion cells with a total capacity of 9.2 kWh (7.4 kWh usable), and is placed under the rear seats, to save space, and includes efficient cooling with a low temperature integrated circuit refrigerant.

Due to the installation of the flat battery, the BMW 530E iPerformance provides a boot capacity of 410 liters and a flat floor cargo compartment. The high voltage battery of the BMW 530E iPerformance can be fully charged in less than five hours from a household power and in less than three hours when connected to the dedicated BMW i Wallbox, with a charging capacity of 3,7 kW.
