BMW-Brillance JV Rolls Out 530Le Electric Hybrid in China
BMW 530Le plug-in hybrid makes its world debut at the 2014 Guangzhou Auto Show. Built specifically for the fast growing Chinese automotive market, the 530Le is based on the long wheelbase 5 Series which is manufactured in China by the Brilliance-BMW joint venture.
Just like the BMW X5 eHybrid, the 530Le combine a four-cylinder IC engine (the familiar N20) and a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission. Instead of the usual torque converter the 530Le inserts an electric motor.
The conventional engine produces 242 horsepower for an overall power output of around 272 horsepower.
