Born from the future.

BMW's plug-in hybrid technology came directly from the BMW i8, more specifically, its award-winning2015 International Engine of the Year Award Winner. sports car hybrid drivetrain system. This advanced piece of engineering is responsible for taking the BMW i8, and now BMW iPerformance models, farther than ever with enhanced performance.

Electrified performance.

What differentiates the drivetrain of BMW iPerformance models from the drivetrain in any other BMW is the electric eDrive motor. Powered by a high-voltage lithium-ion battery, the electric eDrive motor not only makes it possible to drive with greater efficiency than a standard gas-powered BMW, it also enhances the thrill of driving with performance features such as eBoost — an instant acceleration provided by the electric motor and gas engine working in tandem whenever you push the throttle.

Proven power.

BMW's plug-in hybrid iPerformance models are anchored by BMW's legendary 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder gasoline engine. This piece of refined machinery is no stranger to sitting under the roundel, and provides an extra kick at higher rpms that will be familiar for BMW owners. BMW i8 drivetrain shown.

The two power sources play so nicely together...

Everyday Performance Driven By Technology


A smarter morning routine.

Before heading to work, or wherever your day takes you, you can upload your route and precondition your BMW iPerformance model from your smartphone or watch. Preconditioning allows you to control the climate of the cabin prior to getting inside, so you can warm it up on cold days or cool it off on hot days. Either way, your BMW will be ready to go when you are.

Everyday Performance Driven By Technology


Efficiency made easy.

As you drive in AUTO eDrive mode, the engine intelligently communicates with the navigation system to constantly adjust the mix of electric and gas to maximize efficiency and power output based on your route's speed limits, real-time traffic, and changes in elevation.2016 X5 xDrive40e iDrive screen shown.

Get a charge when you want one.

While charging isn't a necessity, since iPerformance vehicles can drive on gas-only, a fast-growing public charging infrastructure allows you to top up the charge on your battery while you aren't behind the wheel. You can also conveniently charge by using the Occasional Use Cable and a regular 120v wall outlet.
