October 24, 2016 , Los Angeles, CA... BMW will showcase its iPerformance family of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, taking place at the Los Angeles Convention Center (located at 1201 South Figueroa Street). English-, German- and Spanish-speaking BMW representatives will be available for interviews on Wednesday, November 16 and Thursday, November 17 at the BMW Stand.

BMW iPerformance, BMWs plug-in hybrid models, apply eDrive technology from BMW i (BMWs brand that emphasizes sustainability in visionary vehicle concepts and technologies) to the BMW core brand via the technical expertise regarding electric motors, battery cells, and electronic control systems. BMW iPerformance vehicles that will be displayed throughout the Los Angeles Auto Show include the BMW 740e xDrive, BMW 330e, and BMW X5 xDrive40e. Additional featured vehicles include the BMW i8, BMW M760i xDrive, and BMW ALPINA B7 xDrive, as well as updated models throughout the BMW lineup for 2017.

Featured Vehicles

The BMW 740e xDrive iPerformance, BMWs flagship plug-in hybrid model, presents the comfort of the BMW 7 Series with the virtues of electric, locally emission-free mobility. The BMW 740e iPerformance gets its eDrive powertrain technology from a 2.0 liter inline 4-cylinder gasoline engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and an electric motor integrated into the 8-speed Steptronic transmission generating a combined system output of 322 hp. A total of 14 miles in all-electric mode with a top speed of 87 mph can be achieved as well as a combined fuel economy of 64 MPGe. Core features include the BMW EfficientLightweight concept, allowing for significant weight reduction in comparison to its predecessor. Groundbreaking BMW Carbon Core passenger cell technology is the key element on the body structure by the extensive use of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) and the strategic application of the lightweight design to reduce weight and increase both the overall torsional strength and bending stiffness. The BMW 740e xDrive iPerformance is available in U.S. showrooms starting at $90,095 including Destination and Handling.

The BMW 330e iPerformance adds a plug-in hybrid drive system to the worlds most successful premium model, the BMW 3 Series. The innovative use of an electric motor with the BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder engine, which has won the International Engine of the Year Award twice to date, results in a total system output of 248 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. The BMW 330e iPerformance accelerates from 0-60 mph in 5.9 seconds and reaches a top speed of 140 mph. Pure-electric driving is possible at speeds up to 75 mph with a range of approximately 14 miles well as a combined fuel economy of 71 MPGe. The 2016 BMW 330e iPerformance is in U.S. showrooms for $45,095 including Destination and Handling.

The BMW X5 xDrive40e iPerformance, the companys first plug-in hybrid, combines the 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder engine with an electric motor powered by a lithium-ion battery, integrated into its 8-speed automatic transmission. The BMW X5 xDrive40e iPerformance can travel approximately 14 miles on pure electric propulsion, powered by a lithium-ion battery, ideally suited for short commutes and quick trips around town yielding an impressive 56 MPGe. Combined, the gasoline engine and electric motor put out 308 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque, enough to propel the X5 xDrive40e from 0-60mph in just 6.5 seconds. This Sports Activity Vehicle features BMW xDrive, the companys intelligent all-wheel drive system, for optimal stability and traction under all road conditions. The 2017 BMW X5 xDrive40e is available in US showrooms for $63,095 including Destination and Handling.

In addition to BMW iPerformance and BMW i vehicles, BMW will showcase new engine variants in the BMW 2 Series and BMW M2 at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The BMW 2 Series will now feature the latest generation of BMW TwinPowerTurbo 4-cylinder and 6-cylinder inline engines.

For the first time, the BMW ALPINA B7 xDrive includes Integral Active Steering, typically associated with sports cars, and combines a variable ratio electric steering system at the front axle with active steering on the rear axle for increased agility and dynamic handling. The new 4.4 liter 8-cylinder engine delivers an impressive output of 600 hp and a maximum torque of 590 lb-ft, resulting in remarkable acceleration from 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds, 0.8 seconds faster than its predecessor. Built for cruising at maximum comfort, the BMW ALPINA B7s high-performance drivetrain is complemented by its aerodynamic elements and sporty yet elegant interior design. The BMW ALPINA B7 xDrive is in U.S. showrooms, the BMW ALPINA B7 Sedan for $137,995 and the BMW ALPINA B6 Gran Coupe for $123,495 including Destination and Handling.

BMW is committed to fostering the adoption of EVs in the U. S. Immediately prior to press days at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the company will announce updates for its BMW ChargeForward pilot program in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area, which will explore new smart charging functionality and renewable energy integration, to determine which features provide the greatest benefits to both EV drivers and to the grid.

BMW recently completed the Express Charging Corridors initiative in which EV drivers can travel the most heavily-trafficked corridors on the East and West Coasts with the installation of 95 new DC Fast charging stations, spaced approximately 50 miles apart. This collaboration with Volkswagen of America and ChargePoint was designed to address the increasing demand for convenient, publicly-available EV fast chargers. In addition, BMW also announced new ChargeNow by EVgo public charging programs at participating EVgo stations in 25 key EV markets.

Jason,

The BMW Blog article on the BMW presence at the LA Auto Show referenced new variants of engines in the 2 series and M2 as of this morning. The post appears to have been edited an no longer references the M2, but just the 2 series cars.

Thoughts?

Weren't these cars on show for a year? As my memory serves, I think I am correct. But, what makes these cars any different?

And what do they mean by "hybrid plug-in"? I didn't get that part. Can any of you help me with that?
