Understanding BMW’s iPerformance lineup

Published on April 30 2017

It is always interesting to notice that the BMW range of new vehicles is one of the most economical and efficient of any luxury automaker lineup, but that the German manufacturer never seems to make a big deal out of it.

Indeed, BMW new vehicles are able to stand out as much in terms of performance as they do in the efficiency department, and they allow their owners to have fun without having to worry too much about the final result at the gas station. Add to this the BMW i range of vehicles and the newest variants wearing the iPerformance badge, and you really have a family of vehicles that stand out when it comes to fuel economy!

But what is BMW iPerformance?

Announced just a few months ago and officially presented at the New York International Auto Show last week, the new iPerformance range will be a series of plug-in hybrid models that will deliver even more impressive fuel economy!

BMW iPerformance models, such as the new 5 Series, are plug-in hybrid models which combine a traditional gasoline engine with an electric motor. This electric motor is always paired with a high-capacity battery that allows BMW iPerformance vehicles to travel several tens of kilometers without using a single drop of fuel. Pretty impressive!

It is therefore possible to carry out the majority of our daily commutes without burning any fuel. On the other hand, if we need to travel longer distances, it is possible to do so without any difficulty.

In addition, the gasoline engine of BMW iPerformance vehicles remains performance-oriented. This means that they benefit from better fuel economy that does not come at the expense of driving pleasure!

BMW eDrive at the heart of BMW iPerformance

BMW iPerformance models are powered by BMW's eDrive system, which can cover short and medium distances using only the power of an electric motor that is powered by a lithium-ion battery. The biturbo gas engine is available if we want more power, or if the battery is flat.

This translates into a fuel consumption rating that is often less than 3.0 liters per 100 kilometers, but in return it is always possible to have fun when we want to in our BMW iPerformance vehicle.
