In the new 5 Series Hybrid model, BMW have combined the 248 bhp 3.0 litre turbocharged petrol engine from the 530i with a 107 bhp horsepower electric motor, to create one of the first in a new generation of highly efficient, top performance hybrid cars, the new 545e. These can be used in combination for rapid acceleration or individually with the total combined output when both are run in tandem being 389 bhp and 442lb/ft of torque, the pure electric mode can run for up to 35 miles and provide speeds of up to 87 mph, with zero emissions, and is fantastic for low speed commuting.
For even greater convenience and efficiency, the 5 Series' Hybrid system automatically calculates which mode is the most appropriate for the road conditions, and switches seamlessly between them. Plus, the on-board lithium-ion battery can be recharged with power that would otherwise be lost during braking, further increasing the efficiency and mileage of the electric motor between charges or plugged in and recharged overnight for very low cost motoring.
The 545e Hybrid also includes Sport+ mode, for times when a more dynamic driving experience is called for. This delivers the setup’s full power output, giving an impressive 0 to 60mph acceleration of just 4.7 seconds, which is fast enough to compete with many sports cars. The 545e comes with an 8-speed automatic as standard and in M Sport trim.
