BMW Group is to grow its portfolio of plug-in hybrid (PHEV) models this summer. The new PHEV line up includes the new BMW 330e Sedan, new BMW 530e Sedan, new BMW 530e xDrive Sedan and new BMW X5 xDrive45e.

All the new models will enter production either in July or August.

The German carmaker has announced that all its plug-in hybrid models will now come with new battery cell technology to boost their electric range.

 

They will also feature acoustic protection for pedestrians as standard.

According to the press statement: ‘When driving on electric power, an unmistakable sound specially created for electrified BMW models is generated using a system of speakers. The sound produced at low speeds has been designed to announce the car’s presence acoustically without affecting acoustic comfort for its occupants’.
