Introducing the BMW 5 Series Plug-in Hybrid
It is clear to see that the BMW 5 Series is the master when it comes to luxurious power, but now it has evolved and is available as an efficient plug-in hybrid (PHEV).
Impressive as ever, the 5 Series Plug-in Hybrid model can be selected with both the Saloon and Touring bodystyles, so whichever is your preference you can submerge yourself into the benefits of a plug-in hybrid.
Superb levels of intelligence feature in the 530e and 545e models, with the new Anticipatory Hybrid mode; which maximises fuel efficiency by utilising Real Time Traffic Information.
Range and Performance
Astonishing performance can be experienced across the whole range of 5 Series Plug-in Hybrid models. The supreme 545e xDrive Saloon is extremely impressive with an almighty combined power output of 389bhp, whilst boasting remarkable fuel consumption of up to 166.2mpg (WLTP combined).
Fuel consumption figures can significantly rise if you select the 530e Saloon with up to 201.8mpg, whilst still being able to reach 62mph from zero in just 5.9 seconds thanks to a combined power output of 288bhp.
Figures for the Touring 530e and 530e xDrive are also decent and worth noting, with fuel consumption ranging between 148.7 and 188.3mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 35g/km.
Each model has an all-electric range of between 31 and 37 miles, enabling short journeys to be emission free and cost-effective.
Initially you may be anxious about the idea of charging your BMW 5 Series Plug-in Hybrid, just because it is a different method to what you are used to with conventional petrol and diesel powered vehicles. However, you may be pleasantly surprised to hear that re-charging your vehicle's battery is actually far simpler than re-fuelling.
Re-charging without even needing to leave your home is a key benefit. Just plug-in your 5 Series to either a standard plug socket in your home or the BMW i Wallbox with the charging cable, which comes as standard with the 5 Series Saloon and Touring PHEV models. Using the BMW i Wallbox, you can reach 80 percent charge from empty in just 2.6 hours.
As for when you are out and about, you can use one of the many public charging points located around the UK to give you a boost. Plus, with BMW's mobility service, ChargeNow, you have access to over 7,000 partner charging stations.
