January 9, 2017

Opting for the plug-in hybrid version of BMW's new 5-Series will set buyers back an additional $1,200 over the gas-only variant

BMW announced today that the 530e iPerformance will sticker from $52,395, including a mandatory $995 destination charge. That's for the rear-wheel drive variant; the all-wheel drive model runs $54,695.

The 530e iPerformance features a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine mated to an electric motor that delivers a combined output of 248 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. A 9.2-kWh lithium ion battery pack supplies enough power for the 530e to be driven without utilizing the gasoline motor at all, enough for a 14-mile electric-only range.

At the opposite end of the spectrum, BMW also confirmed pricing for its M550i xDrive. The V-8-powered, 456-horsepower, all-wheel drive flagship version of the 5-Series line (at least until the next generation M5 arrives) will be priced from $73,095 when it hits the market this spring.

With today's news, we now know pricing for the entire 5-Series lineup, with one caveat—the 530e and M550i will be 2018 models, while the 530i and 540i are 2017s.
