BMW iPerformance Plug-In Hybrid Vehicles are Electrifying the Eco-Friendly Experience

Drivers of luxury and sports cars typically have to face a hard choice--driving a practical and efficient car for their commute and daily travels, or driving something that really gives purpose to every mile of road crossed. Some are able to simply have one for one, and another for another. But, with the new line of BMW iPerformance models, you can now have it all--guilt-free.

With the current lineup offering PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle) capabilities on new BMW 3 Series, BMW 5 Series, BMW 7 Series, and select BMW X Series crossovers, your choices for a fuel-efficient, eco-friendly, and luxurious daily driver are more varied, and more thrilling, than ever before.

BMW iPerformance models don't compromise iconic design elements for efficiency, like some other automakers. Every new PHEV sports car utilizes a design that emphasizes aerodynamics over all else, similar to their gas-only siblings. Subtle and eye-catching accents, including the sharp Hofmeister Kink and the legendary dual kidney grille, can be found on every model, along with the beloved BMW roundel. These vehicles might be the most efficient and expertly-engineered cars and SAVs in the lineup, but they continue to honor the BMW tradition of form always following function.
