The BMW 5 Series Saloon iPerformance takes the iconic 5 Series in its award-winning current generation and adds a hybrid drivetrain. This combination of tradition and forward-thinking technology offers an uncompromising, luxurious ownership experience, while delivering exciting performance and reduced emissions in equal measure.
From the outside there are very few details that differentiate the iPerformance variant from other 5 Series models. Save for some subtle badging and a discretely placed charge port, it looks like its conventionally-fuelled siblings. Inside the cabin it's the same story, with additional battery information displays and unique drive select modes being the only tell-tale signs of what lies beneath.
Use of lightweight materials and the very latest technologies allows this BMW to offer an exhilarating 0-62mph time of 6.2 seconds, while also delivering outstanding economy and reduced emissions. The four-cylinder TwinPower Turbo petrol engine delivers 184hp and includes the same efficient technologies that are found on all 5 Series models, including engine stop/start. Mated to this is a 95hp electric motor, which offers a combined output of 252hp and can provide sole power on short journeys, such as inner city trips.
As you would expect from a BMW, the 5 Series Saloon iPerformance comes packed full of the latest infotainment, performance and comfort technology. Unique to the iPerformance is the ability to switch between hybrid and battery-only modes on the fly. It can also be charged wirelessly via a charging station on the floor of your garage or outside. A display inside the cabin indicates when the vehicle is correctly located over the station, and inductive charging begins as soon as the car has been switched off and secured.
