BMW 530e Saloon Plug-in Hybrid
BMW 530e Saloon Plug-in Hybrid DESIGN
Adding a dash of pure electric running and hybrid functionality to the dazzling 5 Series, the 530e isn’t afraid to be bold and inspiring. This vibrant attitude is reflected in its styling with key exterior features including the double kidney grille, LED headlights, beautiful streamlining and dominant 19-inch alloys which grip the road with confidence. An M Sport body kit is also available with a glossy, dark grey exterior trim for extra refinement.
BMW’s e-Drive badging on the back is a nod to its electrified powertrain as is the charging port upfront which is beautifully discreet. Indeed, across the new BMW range you’ll find that the hybrid essence of each model isn’t notably emphasised from an exterior perspective, despite its electric capabilities.
When you step inside this modern hybrid, you’ll notice it feels spacious and uncluttered. Intuitive storage and a sizable boot (despite the battery pack being hidden underneath), means you’ve plenty of room for your belongings. One of the main features of this hybrid has to be the intuitive dash. This displays essential information to the driver including electric range and how much battery power is remaining. It also comes with one of the best infotainment systems on the market, offering a 10.25-inch screen and features such as voice control and satellite navigation. Add Bluetooth, a CD player, a USB port and Apple CarPlay and you’ll see technology is at the forefront of this design.
Combine a two-litre turbocharged petrol engine with a battery powering a 94bhp electric motor and you’ve a model that can deliver an exhilarating performance time and time again. Reducing fuel output wherever possible, this vehicle has an electric-only range of around 30 miles and uses regenerative braking to help recharge the battery during motion. The vehicle can also be plugged into an external charging source.
The steering is light, making manoeuvres easy and, as the suspension has been finely tuned to handle the bumps of the road with ease, you can enjoy a smooth and responsive ride.
