BMW iPerformance Automobiles: showcase of different car models.


Plug-in Hybrids with BMW i know-how.

*European model shown.


Experience has always been a key factor in implementing innovative automotive concepts. And in the BMW plug-in hybrids, this influence has been particularly valuable. Their drive system consists of an efficient combustion engine and a powerful electric motor. This is how they combine the typical BMW qualities with the advantages of electric driving and thus profit directly from the expertise of the BMW i engineers to such an extent that they deserve their own designation: BMW iPerformance Automobiles.

ELECTRIFIED BY BMW i.Plug-in Hybrids with BMW i know-how.


The BMW iPerformance vehicles use the BMW eDrive electric drive technology developed by BMW i. They are able to cover short and medium distances purely electrically with the innovative combination of electric motor, lithium-ion battery and intelligent energy management. The TwinPower Turbo petrol engine is activated when needed. BMW eDrive is currently offered for the BMW 3 Series, BMW 5 Series, and BMW 7 Series.

BMW eDrive.

The intelligent and dynamic way to drive electrically.


In the BMW iPerformance models, an efficient combustion engine works in perfect harmony with a powerful electric motor. The conventional drive offers the range while the electric drive scores particularly highly in urban traffic, thanks to its zero emissions and almost silent driving dynamics. The BMW 530e, for example, can cover up to 24 km all-electric. The lithium-ion battery can be recharged from the BMW i Wallbox, at public charging stations and from any standard household socket.

Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 3.5
Power consumption in kWh/100 km (combined): 30.2


    In AUTO eDRIVE mode, an intelligent energy management system determines the most efficient combination of the electric motor and combustion engine – according to driving speed and battery charge level.



The BMW plug-in hybrid models systematically pursue the BMW EfficientDynamics strategy. Apart from the “e” in the model designation, the following optical features will enable you to recognize a BMW iPerformance model as soon as you see one.

BMW iPerformance is more than a designation for plug-in hybrid models, it is part of a sustainable mobility strategy. As is the case with the BMW i3 or BMW i8, the 360° ELECTRIC program is available for use. The program offers decisive benefits that range from installing a BMW i charging station to arranging a suitable green energy contract to access the world’s largest networks of public charging stations. Other features available for every BMW iPerformance model are the BMW Connected App and ECO ROUTE which highlight efficient routes in the navigation system.

    The values of fuel consumptions, CO2 emissions and energy consumptions shown were determined according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers optional equipment and the different size of wheels and tires available on the selected model.

    (1) The values are applicable until 15.04.2018. Please check availability with your BMW dealer.

    The values of the vehicles labeled with (3), are already based on the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to ensure the comparison between the vehicles. [With respect to these vehicles, for vehicle related taxes or other duties based (at least inter alia) on CO2-emissions the CO2 values may differ to the values stated here.]

    The CO2 efficiency specifications are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the European Regulation in its current version applicable. The values shown are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle for the classification.

    For further information about the official fuel consumption and the specific CO2 emission of new passenger cars can be taken out of the „handbook of fuel consumption, the CO2 emission and power consumption of new passenger cars“, which is available at all selling points and at
