German automaker BMW launched three BMW iPerformance plug-in hybrid electric vehicles — the new BMW 530e, BMW 740Le xDrive and BMW X5 xDrive40e on Saturday in Bangladesh.
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, a press statement said.
The iPerformance models also benefit from the transfer of technical expertise regarding electric motors, battery cells, and electronic control systems.
The announcement of the launch of the cars at a press conference at Executive Motors Ltd, the only authorised importer and dealer of BMW vehicles in Bangladesh, at Tejgaon in Dhaka.
Dewan Muhammad Sajid Afzal, director of operations, Executive Motors Ltd, and Md Bazlul Karim, director of after sales, Executive Motors Ltd, were present at the press conference along with other top officials from BMW Asia.
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.
All iPerformance models will come with five years of free service, parts, maintenance and repair.
There will be no additional running costs for the customers for the next 5 years from the date of purchase, the statement added.
