  by Ali Arsham
If I told you a few years ago that you can buy a plug-in hybrid with a BMW badge, you probably would not believe me. The fact is that now you can buy the 530e iPerformance which is one of our favorite BMW models (except for M models, of course).  It is completely a 5 series BMW first which is great because the 5 series has always been the perfect size.
