BMW iPerformance models are designed to very high technical standards, based on the same vehicle architecture as the conventional models. The safety of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles with high-voltage batteries has also been confirmed by independent institutes.
Thanks to the electric motor in the BMW iPerformance models, electric driving and an increase in efficiency are combined. The electric motor delivers its power immediately, even from standstill, making for a dynamic driving experience. And as part of the boost function, this electric motor gives support for the combustion engine during acceleration and in dynamic short bursts. Moreover, BMW iPerformance models are silent and locally emission-free when travelling in electric mode.
