The 2022 BMW 530e Plug-In Hybrid comes in two trims: the 530e Sedan (MSRP: $55,550.00), and the 530e xDrive Sedan (MSRP: $57,850.00). The 530e has an all-electric range of 21 miles, while the 530e xDrive has an all-electric range of 18 miles and is $2,000 more because of its All Wheel Drive. Both cars have a total range of 330 miles.

Both trims are made of lightweight high-strength steel, aluminum, and magnesium, which provides the 5 Series Sedan with awe-inspiring acceleration. These superior materials and an elegant BMW design make for a vehicle that’s fast, stylish, stable, efficient and electric!

Both PHEVs are eligible for a Federal Tax Credit of up to $5,836.

Says BMW: “Meet the BMW 530e – a 5 Series Sedan with the enhancements of BMW iPerformance technology. This powerful plug-in hybrid is built to the same exacting standards of the 5 Series, but with an additional electric motor that delivers better fuel efficiency and surprisingly powerful torque. It took more than four decades of engineering, design, and technological advancements to arrive at this iteration of the BMW 5 Series. With the powerful lines of its exterior and the chest-gripping thrill of acceleration, this sedan is worth every minute.”

Key 530e PHEV features:
• 2.0-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder with eDrive 107-horsepower electric motor (total power output of 288 horsepower)
• J1772 AC Charging (3.7 kW) with 12 kWh high-voltage lithium-ion battery pack
• 16-way power front sport seats with SensaTec upholstery
• BMW eDrive Services including range and charging status display, charging station search, charging timer and cabin preconditioning
• BMW Navigation system with 12.3-inch high-resolution touchscreen
• iDrive 7.0 system with touchscreen, touchpad Controller and 7 freely programmable memory buttons

While the BMW 5-Series has represented the top of the midsize luxury sport sedan segment for decades, drivers can now take the exhilaration of electrified performance to a higher level with the 530e iPerformance, powered by a 2.0-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder paired to an eDrive electric motor. Speeding from 0-60 in just 5.7 seconds, the 530e iPerformance is available with your choice of sDrive Rear-wheel drive and xDrive all-wheel drive.

Enjoy up to 64 MPGe thanks to 3.7 kW AC charging capabilities. A full battery charge requires just three hours using a 120V outlet. Standard BMW eDrive Services make it simple to find charging stations, precondition the cabin, and check the charging status.

Says edmunds.com reviewer Michael Cantu: “The BMW 530e is a smart pick if you're looking for a fuel-efficient, top-notch luxury sedan. The 5 Series' impressive driving dynamics aren't compromised by the addition of the plug-in hybrid powertrain. This is a well-built, high-tech sedan that bathes you in quiet comfort.”

Considered the “middle child” of the BMW Sedan lineup, the 5 Series is perfect if you’re searching for a premium midsized sedan that’s smller than the full-size 7 Series sedan, but roomier than the 4 Series Gran Coupe Sedan and 5 Series. With an efficient engine, superb transmission, a quiet and comfy cabin, generous trunk capacity and plenty of leading-edge tech, the 530e PHEV is less of a top-performing sports sedan and more of a mid-sized 5-seat luxury ride with excellent power and driving characteristics.

With the standard BMW Live Cockpit Professional, intuitive technology like the Digital Instrument Cluster and Central Information Display deliver seamlessly integrated entertainment, navigation, and safety features to 530e drivers.

Standard Active Driving Assistant includes Frontal Collision Warning, Active Blind Spot Detection, Lane Departure Warning, and Speed Limit Info.

Standard BMW Assist eCall includes Emergency Request (SOS button) and Enhanced Automatic Collision Notification. Active Protection System detects imminent accidents, then prepares by automatically pretensioning safety belts, closing windows and moonroof, and activating post-crash braking; includes Fatigue and Focus Alert feature.

BMW’s partnership with EVgo gives you access to more than 35,000 Level 2 chargers nationwide through your BMW Charging app.

Driving Electric says: “The best thing about the BMW 5 Series plug-in hybrid is that it feels like every other 5 Series – refined, classy and spectacularly good to drive.”

Roadshow by CNET says: “BMW’s all about customizable drive modes on the performance side and the iPerformance hybrid is no exception. In addition to the Comfort, Sport, Adaptive and Eco Pro drive modes from the standard 5er, the 530e also features a trio of eDrive modes that adapt how the hybrid system makes use of battery power.”
