BMW yesterday launched three plug-in hybrid vehicles in Bangladesh.
The BMW 530e, BMW 740Le xDrive and BMW X5 xDrive40e are characterised by a combination of an electric motor and a “highly efficient and sporty” engine.
The German multinational says these iPerformance models can achieve “excellent fuel efficiency yet provide dynamic performance” and “high operating range” while combining an electric driving experience with functional excellence and everyday practicality.
“Sustainable mobility is the future of mobility,” said Dewan Muhammad Sajid Afzal, director of operations at Executive Motors Ltd, the authorised importer and dealer of BMW vehicles in Bangladesh.
Addressing a press conference at the Executive Motors showroom in Dhaka's Tejgaon, he said, “We've reached a milestone today in Bangladesh by offering customers a range of BMW iPerformance models with electrified drivetrains.” “We look forward to providing our customers with the opportunity to better the environment while experiencing an entirely new dimension of pure driving pleasure with the power of electro-mobility,” he added.
All iPerformance models come with five years of free service, parts, maintenance and repair.
