Almost the entire 2017 BMW 5-Series has been presented to the public, with the exception of the all-new 530i Performance model, which is now heading to the United Kingdom, with lots of technology and interesting prices.
In case you fancy the 530e iPerformance hybrid variant from the new 5-Series, then get ready to through in at least £43,985 once it will officially arrive in dealership this month. For that kind of money you get plenty of tweaks at the exterior.
We are looking here at a wide range of standout styling features, like the blue kidney grille slats which announce the hybrid version, along with blue wheel hub covers, 530e badge found on the boot lid, the A-pillar with the charging socket, front wheel arch, as well as the eDrive logos on the C-pillars.
Inside, the same common high-tech features are found, along with the latest safety gizmos – Lance Change Assistant, Lane Keeping Assistant, optional Active Cruie Control – while the technology comprises high-resolution 10.25-inch display, Bluetooth, satellite navigation, voice assistant, gesture control, BMW Connected Onboard, Microsoft Office 365, and much more.
Under the hood, the BMW 530e iPerformance packs a conventional 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired to an electric motor, the entire drivetrain delivering 252 horsepower and 420 Nm of torque. This allows a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.2 seconds, at a top speed of 235 km/h.
In terms of fuel-consumption, the 530e iPerformance burns out just 2l / 100 km, while the CO2 emissions stand at 46 g/km. The lithium-ion battery pack also allows a capacity of 9.2 kWh, providing a driving range of 47 km, at a top speed of 140 km/h.
