BMW has announced Australian pricing details for the 740e iPerformance - the first plug-in hybrid variant to join the 7 Series range.

At $229,000 (plus on-road costs), the 740e undercuts its direct rival, the Mercedes-Benz S 500e by the not insubstantial amount of $90,715.

Of course comparisons are a lot more complicated than just dollars but BMW has certainly given the 740e a strong start.

Like BMW’s hybrid SUV the X5 40e, the 740e employs a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with an electric motor which drives the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.

However in the case of the 740e, output of the petrol engine is 190kW/400Nm and 83kW/250Nm for the electric motor for a combined figure of 240kW/500Nm.

BMW claims the 740e delivers zero to 100km/h in 5.4 seconds and combined-cycle fuel consumption is rated at very impressive 2.2l/100kms.

Pure electric driving range is said to be 48kms and a full battery recharge using a regular 230-volt system can be accomplished in five hours. Fit a BMW i Wallbox and that time drops to just 2.5 hours.

On the specifications front - apart from the necessary hybrid kit like a noise-emitting pedestrian warning system - the 740e mirrors the 740i's air suspension, active lane-keeping assist, active cruise control, head-up display, professional navigation with gesture control, 16-speaker Harman/Kardon audio and nappa leather interior.

On the options list is a ‘Rear Seat indulgence Package’ which adds two tiltable independent 10-inch careens with Blue-ray drive and a TV function with digital reception, ventilated/heated seats with a massage function and electric adjustment.
