BMW intelligent electric drive vehicles offer drivers the convenience of electric drive efficiency paired with the reliability and power of gasoline engine combinations.
BMW is proud to be pioneering the future of electric vehicles. Beginning with the innovative technology of the BMW i8, electric hybrid models are continuing to advance the future of efficiency. For example, the BMW i8 sports car hybrid drivetrain system won the International Engine of the Year Award in 2015 and has been breaking boundaries ever since.
Electric Drive Offers Maximum Efficiency
What sets the BMW iPerformance drivetrain apart from other BMW motors is the electric eDrive motor. This innovative engine motor is powered by a high-voltage lithium-ion battery that makes it possible to drive with greater efficiency without sacrificing power and performance. For example, features such as eBoost provide instant acceleration when you push the throttle, giving drivers the responsive performance they expect from a BMW luxury vehicle.
Intelligent Pairing of Gas and Electric Power
Furthermore, each BMW iPerformance vehicle is also powered by a 2.0 liter TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder gasoline engine. The pairing of the gasoline and electric motor is important because the gasoline motor provides the ability to still traverse long distances, while the electric motor improves efficiency during the drive. This combination provides an intelligent mix of power and performance – giving drivers the best of both worlds. For example:
- The BMW 330e offers 14mi per charge and 373 miles total range
- The BMW X5 xDrive40e is capable of 14 miles per charge and 540 miles total range
So no matter whether you are heading around town for errands or traveling cross country for adventure, the BMW iPerformance vehicles allow you to optimize your performance and efficiency in any situation.
