BMW 5 Series 530e Luxury iPerformance Review
The Electrifying Executive

Styling-wise, it looks just like any vanilla 530i, apart from the eDrive label on the C-pillar, a tinge of blue within the grille flaps and a blue ring surrounding the BMW roundel within the rims

The introduction of the new iPerformance range of BMW cars is an important step for the Bavarian manufacturer for things much bigger. The 530e takes all the reliabilities of internal combustion engined motoring, and combines this with their take on the future, plug-in hybrid technology.

We will not deny that all this would mean that the infrastructure in a city has to be well-implemented, and at least one base charging station (usually your home) must be in-place, before things can take flight.

With this, BMW’s bold push forward to introduce the iPerformance range on shores, does also come with much effort, working with the government and various agencies to ensure that the correct Type Two charging stations are installed around the island, that everyone is on the same page, and that there is serious enough justification for the consumer to actually take up ownership of their cars.

Well anyway, while they work this out, we got our behinds into the 530e iPerformance, and we do admit that it really is a wonderful car to live with.

Styling-wise, it looks just like any vanilla 530i, apart from the eDrive label on the C-pillar, a tinge of blue within the grille flaps and a blue ring surrounding the BMW roundel within the rims.
