530e:

  • around 280 hp system power from four-cylinder engine and an electric motor
  • up to 22 miles / 35 km in all-electric mode (up to 75 mph / 120 km/h)
540e (more power / slightly less range):
  • gasoline engine four-cylinder TwinPower turbo (258 hp and 400 Nm) + an electric motor (95 hp and 250 Nm) for a total power of 326 hp of system power
  • up to 19 miles / 30 km in all-electric mode (up to 75 mph / 120 km/h)
A wireless charging option is expected to be offered on both versions.
