2019 BMW 530e iPerformance Reviews; Diesel Hybrid

Friday, April 28th, 2017 - BMW

The 2019 BMW 530e iPerformance is the rechargeable hybrid version German sedan: thanks to the lithium batteries can go into electric 30 kilometres, without emitting gases or noise. The trunk, however, loses 120 liters.

About four months ago we were driving on the roads of Portugal the new BMW 5 Series with three-liter turbodiesel from 265 HP (read here the first contact). Today is the turn of German sedan rechargeable hybrid version, with its elegant and refined finish and sports: combines an electric motor from 113 HP four-cylinder turbocharged gasoline to 184 (the combined power is 252 HP). Already ordered, but with deliveries starting in late May-early June, allows second home to travel up to 50 km in electric-only mode. 9.2 kWh lithium-ion batteries are housed under the sofa back (convenient especially for two, as the Central passenger is bothered by the cumbersome tunnel); However, extend partially up beneath the trunk, subtracting almost a quarter of working capacity (from 410 to 530 litres of “normal” versions of the new BMW 530e iPerformance: the Fund is raised almost 15 cm, coming close to line of load threshold). Recharge occurs in March (during the slowdown or subtracting some horse at four-cylinder gasoline engine), through the Jack in the left side, right in front of the driver’s door, one of the few elements that distinguish the new BMW 5 Series iPerformance from other 530e. Other differences are in the rear-mounted in the strips written eDrive on vamp with blue inserts and logos BMW on the Hubcaps of the circles, in turn from a side dish in the same color. No difference in terms of equipment: standard or on request there are the most advanced driver assistance systems (from automatic braking, the system that keeps the car in lane and follow the traffic flow); on the front of the connectivity, Luxury offers a multimedia system with 10.25 “wide screen and Wi-Fi.

The full current in almost three hours

The charging cable of the 2019 BMW iPerformance 530e can be attached to a common wall outlet (in this case, the power consumption is 2.7 kW and the time for the “full” is about 4 hours), or to an electrical panel to be installed on the wall, the so-called wall box (approximately 1,500 euros) that can provide up to 3.7 kW and allows lower recharge time to 2 hours 54 minutes. In 2018 there will be a third mode (the cost of which is not yet defined), or the Inductive charging: the car is parked on a plate to be fixed to the floor; inside there is a coil that emits an electromagnetic field which transfers power to another winding under the car itself. The charging time is just over three hours, but with the advantage of not having to connect any wires.

In addition to driving modes common to all series 5 (Echo Pro, Comfort, Sport and Sport +), the new BMW 530e iPerformance has three specific settings for the eDrive battery management: Auto, Max and eDrive Battery control. In the first mode is the controller handle, depending on driving conditions, how and when to use the electric motor built into the eight-speed automatic transmission, or the four-cylinder turbo petrol, or both simultaneously, focusing on performance, or overall system efficiency: driving with the light foot, the electric motor can be used up to 90 km/h. This speed rises to 140 km/h in Max function eDrive, which makes the most current: the internal combustion engine kicks in only when you press the accelerator to have so many horses. Finally, there is the Battery Control, which allows you to set the multimedia system battery charge percentage (from 30% to 100%) that you want to keep (for example, because you will have to log into an area with restricted access to electric cars).

2019 BMW 530e iPerformance Diesel consumption

On board the BMW 530e iPerformance tackle a route of about 120 km with stretches of mountain. Uphill the hybrid system is not an advantage: it forces you to lug around 175 kg more than a 530i petrol (the gap drops to 130 kg compared to a 3.0 d diesel, which has a six-cylinder engine instead of four). Battery life indicated by the onboard computer descends rapidly: in some 20 km the charge is depleted, and you start the gasoline engine. During the descent, though, starts charging, which increases in intensity every time you press the brake: in the first part of the electric braking deceleration (unlike other cars, the pedal is modulated well), with the engine that is used as a generator to recharge the batteries. After stretches and fast and tortuous ups and downs (in which the greater weight, especially at the rear, back to bite), we exploit the Battery Mode Control for forty kilometers to charge up to 70% battery, in order to reach the goal in electric mode in the final stretch on the highway. The charge, at the expense of four-cylinder gasoline engine, does not affect the performance, and the driver almost unaware of what is happening. Eight-speed automatic transmission is always active, even during the all-electric. Here is the quiet ride to impress: in addition to not hear the “voice” of the engine, you do not warn nor rolling noise, hiss and crunches. After about 120 km of driving fast, but not aggressive, the on-board computer showed an average of 16.5 km/: a value good, better than many similar turbo diesel, but it must be considered that we started with fully charged batteries (before starting the charging process was even 22.7 km/liter). The figure declared, referring to the approval cycle is 52.6 km/liter.
