The BMW Plug-in Hybrid range, also known as iPerformance, takes the best of BMW’s combustion engines, using renowned EfficientDynamics, and marries it to modern battery technology and an electric motor. The result is a BMW with two power sources, but more so, it’s a totally responsive drive, with zero emissions at the point of use*.
What is a hybrid?
A hybrid vehicle is any car that is driven by two power sources. In the case of BMW iPerformance models, this is achieved by the use of a small electric engine working in tandem with a petrol engine. The advantage to hybrid cars over conventional cars is that the same level of performance is delivered with lower running costs and reduced emissions. At the same time, hybrid cars offer the same excellent range and convenience of a model with a traditional engine.
