New BMW 740e

New BMW 740eBMW has been developing hybrid and electric mobility solutions under the iPerformance brand. In due course, more BMW models would receive iPerformance derivatives.

When we say economy to match little hatchbacks, we don’t mean an average hatch. In official testing, the 240-kW (326-hp) 740e iPerformance returned between 2.0 and 2.5 L/100km (113 and 141.2 mpg). The discrepancy, for those wondering, is down to whether the car is long or short wheelbase, and if xDrive all-wheel drive is specced.

Of course, whether or not you’ll actually achieve these figures is another thing altogether, but managing to make a five-meter long limousine sip like a VW Polo BlueMotion under any conditions is mightily impressive.

Among the key options are climate controlled front/rear comfort seats, a Sky Lounge Panorama glass roof, the rear Executive Lounge seating, an M Sport Package plus a host of personalization touches as well as BMW’s full roster of driver-assistance features including the latest-generation Head-Up Display, Parking Assistant, Driving Assistant, Driving Assistant Plus and 360-degree Surround View.

BMW says the electric drive system boasts exceptionally high power density with a maximum output of 83 kW/113 hp. The electric motor takes on the role of a generator that – depending on the hybrid function selected – is powered either by recuperating braking energy or by efficiently raising the engine’s load points. It then feeds the energy it generates into the high-voltage battery.
