The 5 Series lineup just got a little bigger.

Available now, the new 2018 BMW 530e is a new turbocharged, plug-in hybrid that joins other green BMW iterations of the 3-Series and 7-Series sedans, as well as the X5 crossover and the now iconic i8 coupe. The 530e wears the "iPerfomance" badge to tie it to the i8 and the i3 electric car, BMW's green cars based on dedicated platforms.

Weatherford BMW now has a full inventory of the new 2018 530e ready to move. And these exciting new BMW plug-in hybrids are eligible for the new Green Clean Air Vehicle Decal. These Green stickers allow carpool lane access to solo drivers of clean air vehicles, and are just another incentive to go green when you buy your next BMW from Weatherford. 



The BMW 530e Vehicle Specs

Obviously one of the biggest draws to buy a new plug-in hybrid are the cost-saving benefits they provide at the pump and on your wallet. That starts under the hood. 
Mechanically, the 208 530e has 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 engine that gets an estimated 180 hp and 215 lb-ft of torque. It's also paired to a high-voltage, 9.2-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery and 95-hp electric motor. This traditional/electric engine combination enables purely electrical, locally emission-free short-range driving with a dynamic driving performance and - combined with the 4-cylinder combustion engine - long-distance capabilities. Drivers also get the added benefit of choosing between rear- or all-wheel drive.

According to BMW, charging the 2018 530e takes 7 hours from a residential 120V outlet. Upgrading to a 240V outlet reduces the charging time to less than 3 hours. 

Additionally, the 2018 530e features similar safety systems as other 5 Series sedans. Lane and traffic navigation aids in traffic at speeds up to 130 mph. and prevents from changing lanes into another car. It also can provide extra steering help for last-minute evasive maneuvers.

It also gets BMW's iDrive infotainment system as standard, as is a 10.25-inch display. Gesture control is optional, as is a suite of BMW Connected apps that extends to driver smart devices.

Green CAV Decals

The new 2018 530e is available now at Weatherford BMW. We're also proud to offer eligibility to apply for a Green Clean Air Vehicle Decal. Issued by the California DMV, these decals are for vehicles that meet specified emissions standards and allow the vehicle to be operated by a single occupant in the HOV (carpool or diamond) lanes of California's freeways. These Green CAV Decals specifically apply to certain cars that meet California's Enhanced Advanced Technology Partial Zero-Emissions (Enhanced AT PZEV) or Transitional Zero-Emission (TZEV) standards for exhaust emissions. Vehicles that meet these requirements are usually plug-in hybrids, like the new 2018 530e.
