The flagship models in the iPerformance range – the 740e and the 740Le xDrive – have gone on sale in the UK with on-the-road prices of £68,330 and £74,880 respectively. Both models make use of the turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine that develops 258hp which is coupled to an electric motor with an output of 112hp.
The total combined system output is 326hp and 369lb ft of torque which endows the two models with 0-62mph times of 5.4 and 5.3 seconds – the four-wheel drive model’s greater traction off the line accounting for its marginally quicker time. The 740e has an all-electric range of 29 miles while the #xDrive model can manage 27 miles purely on electric power. Their official combined economy and emissions figures are 134.5mpg and 49g/km (740e) and 117.7mpg and 54g/km for the xDrive.
The 740e and 740Le xDrive’s standard specification includes LED headlights, the #BMW-Display-Key , the #ConnectedDrive navigation package, smartphone integration with an inductive charging facility for the phone battery, and an iDrive operating system expanded to include a touchscreen function for the Control Display and the globally unique BMW gesture control feature. Customers can also look forward to auxiliary heating and air conditioning, which allow them to prepare the car’s interior temperature in advance.
The heating and air conditioning system of the plug-in hybrid models is supplied with energy from the high-voltage battery and works almost silently due to the electric operation of the refrigerant compressor and instantaneous water heater. The auxiliary air conditioning function is powered by the mains supply when the car’s battery is being charged, while a timer function allows the advance preparation of the interior and charging of the battery to be programmed via the #iDrive menu. In addition, the BMW Remote app allows the driver to activate the auxiliary air conditioning function from outside the car via a smartphone.
