In total, there will be five PHEV versions (more details):
- BMW 530e Sedan (2nd model evolution)
- BMW 530e xDrive Sedan (2nd model evolution)
- BMW 545e xDrive Sedan
- BMW 530e Touring
- BMW 530e xDrive Touring
… but only in Europe, as the 545e and two Touring versions are not coming to the U.S.
According to the review, Autogefühl is quite impressed with the latest 5-Series. It’s a really strong contender in its class.
The facelift made it more attractive, the new seats are amazing, build quality is high, infotainment is better, and most importantly – the driving experience is outstanding with a very natural feel and unique combination of comfort and sporty driving.
The plug-in hybrids, with silent operation in EV mode and improved fuel economy, seem to be a perfect fit for the 5-Series.
As long as incentives are involved (to lower the price difference compared to the conventional versions), the PHEVs should sell pretty well.
