BMW Asia and Performance Motors jointly launched a wide range of new BMW iPerformance plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) in Singapore:
the new BMW 225xe Active Tourer,
the BMW 740Le xDrive
and BMW X5 xDrive40e.
In addition, the new BMW i3 (94 Ah), the recent recipient of the World Urban Car Award 2017 at the New York International Auto Show, is also now available in Singapore.
The BMW iPerformance Automobiles represent the most rigorous implementation yet of Efficient Dynamics in vehicles from the BMW brand. All iPerformance models allow locally emission-free driving without compromising on the driving pleasure one would expect from a BMW. They combine an electric driving experience and high operating range with functional excellence and everyday practicality.
Mr. Horst Herdtle, Managing Director of Performance Motors Limited said, “BMW has reached a milestone today in Singapore by proudly offering our customers seven BMW i and BMW iPerformance models with electrified drivetrains. This is the largest range of EVs and PHEVs offered by any automotive company in Singapore and we look forward to providing our customers the opportunity to experience entirely new dimension of pure driving pleasure with the power of electro-mobility.”
The best of two worlds: BMW eDrive and BMW TwinPower Turbo technology.
The new iPerformance model designation is given to all BMW plug-in hybrids, and provides a clear message of technology transfer from BMW i to the core BMW brand.
By combining an electric motor that delivers maximum torque from zero rpm with a highly efficient and sporty engine, BMW iPerformance cars achieve excellent fuel efficiency yet superb dynamic performance. The iPerformance models also benefit from the transfer of technical expertise regarding electric motors, battery cells, and electronic control systems.
Visually, the iPerformance range is differentiated with BMW i-style blue elements in the kidney grille and wheel hubs, a BMW i logo on the front side panel, and an eDrive logo on the C-pillar.
Packaged together with the BMW i 360° ELECTRIC products and services, the BMW i and iPerformance models offer a complete peace of mind. Ranging from solutions for home and public charging via our partner, Greenlots, to highly connected systems under BMW ConnectedDrive, BMW i 360° ELECTRIC takes care of customer needs to ensure a smooth and enjoyable e-mobility experience.
