After Timo Glock being in familiar territory in the BMW Motorsport simulator in episode one of ‘Timo’s Discovery’, he now visits the BMW Group in Garching near Munich (GER), to become one of the first people to test the new BMW 545e xDrive Sedan, available as of November. In the flagship plug-in hybrid model in the 5 Series, a synchronous electric engine with a maximum performance of 80 kW/109 hp is combined with an efficient inline six-cylinder petrol engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology with a performance of 210 kW/286hp for an overall system performance of 290 kW/394 hp. Through the intelligently controlled interaction of both engines, the new BMW 545e xDrive combines the best of both worlds. It enables both fully electric driving in urban traffic and efficient commuting between home and work, as well as dynamic short drives and comfortable long journeys.

 

That’s the theory. In the practical test, Glock was impressed by both the performance data and the efficiency. His conclusion: “I’ve had the privilege of driving BMW cars for ten years now, and it is always a pleasure. The BMW 545e xDrive is very agile, very easy to handle, very sporty and very comfortable. I’m impressed.”

 

In the video, Glock presents the car in a variety of driving situations, has an expert explain the special features and shows what links the famous composer Hans Zimmer with the BMW 545e xDrive.
