If the 2019 BMW 7 Series had one fault in its drivetrain lineup, it was with the 740e plug-in hybrid. With just a four-cylinder engine under the hood and a puny 14 miles of all-electric range, BMW's biggest PHEV was hard to justify -- especially considering its hefty price tag.
Luckily, BMW has performed a wholesale makeover of the hybrid system in the lengthily named 2020 BMW 745e xDrive iPerformance. There's a bigger gas engine, a more powerful electric motor, and a higher-capacity battery pack that seems more fitting for such a big plug-in luxury sedan.
