With a sub 6 second 0-60mph time thanks to electric augmentation, the BMW 740e iPerformance PHEV is hardly a hybrid for the benefit of the environment. Power is derived from the pairing of a 111hp electric motor and a 255hp combustion 4 cylinder, with total combined outputs of 322hp. All-wheel drive is standard, and the only gearbox available is an 8-speed automatic. The 740e’s electric range is 14 miles, and a full charge takes at best, 2.7 hours. The Driving Assistance Package is a worthwhile option, comprising a heads up display, blind spot monitors, and forward collision avoidance.
