5 Reasons to Drive a BMW 530e in California

Why go hybrid in the BMW 530e? There are countless reasons why drivers love the new BMW 5 Series hybrid executive car. Here are the top five reasons we hear here at your Los Angeles BMW dealer:

  1. California HOV Lane Access - As a Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle, the BMW 530e enjoys free access to HOV lanes regardless of the number of current occupants. This incentive can cut down on your commute and lower your costs by allowing you full access to carpool lanes even if you're driving alone.
  2. Clean Vehicle Rebate - All new BMW 530e models qualify for California's Clean Vehicle Rebate Program. That means your new BMW 530e lease or purchase can net you a $1,500 rebate.
  3. Federal Tax Credit - The IRS offers credits for Qualified Plug-in Electric Drive Motor Vehicles, including the new BMW 530e. The current credit amount for the 530e is a whopping $4,668, making this sleek new hybrid an even better buy.
  4. Price - The 530i and the 530e start at the same price: $53,400 MSRP for 2019 models. With the 530e, your ability to go green and enjoy all the benefits of going hybrid doesn't depend on your bank account or how much you spend. With many competitors, you'll find hybrid versions of vehicles going for thousands and thousands of dollars extra.
  5. BMW Performance - Many hybrid vehicles come with a smaller, weaker engine than the rest of the lineup. That's never the case with BMW. The BMW 530e comes equipped with a powerful full-size turbo-charged I4 engine. Paired with its AC synchronous motor, the 530e earns 248 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque for a zero to sixty time of as little 5.8 seconds.
