2018 BMW 740e xDrive iPerformance Review: Plug It In, Plug It In…for 10 Miles of Electric Range

The eight-speed Steptronic transmission has outstanding internal efficiency, top-class shift dynamics and shift comfort, and a compact construction. However, if the average trip distance is relatively short and the car is charged between trips, the average CO2 emissions will be reduced significantly. There’s no practical reason to cram a cylinder engine cranking out supercar-worthy power into the hood of a giant four-door that’ll never set a tire on a track; buyers simply want such power, simply because they can have it.

The official figures in accordance with the NEDC driving cycle for fuel consumption of mpg and a range of mi are irrelevant in practice.

When the battery is empty or ‘hold charge’ mode is engaged, the fuel consumption is about 37 mpg on the combined motorway and city cycle.

If that powertrain combo seems familiar, well, you’re probably remember Lawrence Ulrich’s review of the e iPerformancewhich uses the same setup in a lower state of tune.

7740e The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure EC Regulation No. It may not have the flowing, hyper-intuitive steering of BMWs past—then 704e, pretty much no modern car does—but it’s not only is it easy to pitch it around like a 3 Series, it’s pretty damn fun.

The iPerformance variants of the BMW 7 Ph model range bring together exceptional efficiency and a form of luxurious driving pleasure and long-distance comfort that speaks to both the present and the future.

But even the status-minded backseat riders who buy fancy four-doors with six-figure pricetags are starting to see a reason to buy cars with hybrid powertrains.
