A Bimmer with a battery: The 2018 BMW 530e hybrid
Elle Cayabyab Gitlin
BMW has been one of the better automakers when it comes to weaning itself off fossil fuels. That's in large part thanks to its i sub-brand, which includes the excellent i8 coupe and the good-but-expensive i3 city car. Both cars were designed from the ground up to be electric vehicles, and both make extensive use of composites and carbon fiber. But they aren't for everyone, and neither are they your only options if you want a plug-in hybrid EV that wears the famous blue and white propellor badge.
Meet the most recent addition to BMW's PHEV line: the 2018 BMW 530e iPerformance.
