The BMW iPerformance Models Combine Energy Efficiency With Supreme Power
Just because you want a vehicle that is energy efficient doesn’t mean that you should have to sacrifice the power and luxury that you desire. The BMW iPerformance vehicles prove that you don’t have to. With the combination of an already powerful gas engine and an amped up electrical motor, each one of these hybrid models showcase superb performance, save you from making extra trips to the gas station, and contain the iconic BMW luxury that you require.
BMW Has Four iPerformance Models
Currently, BMW has released four outstanding plug-in hybrid models, the BMW 330e hybrid, BMW 530e hybrid, BMW 740e hybrid, and BMW X5 xDrive40e hybrid. Hybrid models use mainly gasoline power, but the electric motor improves its functioning and allows it to use less gas in the process. It also tends to intensify the power, which is never a bad thing. Let’s take a closer look at each model to see what they have to offer.
