All iPerformance models allow locally emission-free driving without compromising on the driving pleasure one would expect from a BMW. They combine an electric driving experience and high operating range with functional excellence and everyday practicality.

The new iPerformance model designation is given to all BMW plug-in hybrids, also known as PHEV, and provides a clear message of technology transfer from BMW i to the core BMW brand. 

By combining an electric motor that delivers maximum torque from zero rpm with a highly efficient and sporty engine, BMW iPerformance cars achieve excellent fuel efficiency yet superb dynamic performance. The iPerformance models also benefit from the transfer of technical expertise regarding electric motors, battery cells, and electronic control systems. Simply put, it's the best of two worlds: BMW eDrive and BMW TwinPower Turbo technology.

Visually, the iPerformance range is differentiated with BMW i-style blue elements in the kidney grille and wheel hubs, a BMW i logo on the front side panel, and an eDrive logo on the C-pillar.

The new BMW 330e iPerformance adds another highly innovative variant to the BMW 3 Series lineup with its advanced plug-in hybrid drive system
Packaged together with the BMW i 360° ELECTRIC products and services, the BMW i and iPerformance models offer a complete peace of mind. Ranging from solutions for home and public charging via its partner, Greenlots, to highly connected systems under BMW ConnectedDrive, BMW i 360° ELECTRIC takes care of customer needs to ensure a smooth and enjoyable e-mobility experience.
