Armed with a 2.0L turbocharged Inline-4 engine, a 48V electric system, and a 9.2 kWh battery, fused to an 8-speed automatic transmission, the 2018 BMW 5 Series plug-in hybrid makes 248 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. Standalone, the engine makes 258 lb-ft of torque while the electric motor manages 52 lb-ft. This powertrain helps the 2018 BMW 5 Series plug-in hybrid to cover 0-60 in 6.1 seconds. You can drive the 5 Series plug-in hybrid for 30 miles on the electric system alone, making it suitable for short trips in the city. Combined, the 5 Series plug-in hybrid achieves an impressive 72 MPGe while getting 29 MPG from the traditional engine alone. With a base price of MSRP $52,650, the 5 Series plug-in hybrid makes a formidable competitor in the midsize sedan segment, competing directly with the Volvo S90 Recharge PHEV. Since the PHEV segment lacks choices, the MHEV offers the Lexus ES 300h and the Toyota Avalon Hybrid as indirect rivals.
