PACE 2022: Seek refinement and sophistication in the BMW 530e PHEV and other models by Auto Bavaria

The Premium Auto Car Expo (PACE) returns for 2022, and the latest edition will be taking place later this month from March 19-20 at the Setia City Convention Centre (SCCC), where you’ll get to check out a host of great deals on new and pre-owned premium vehicles.

If you’ve been looking for a premium German sedan augmented with electrification, the BMW 530e could be just the ticket and it will be present at PACE 2022. Being a CKD (locally assembled) model, this means that the 530e gets the full 100% sales and service tax (SST) rebate that is applicable until June 30 this year; CBU imports are eligble for 50% exemption of the SST.

Driven by a petrol-electric hybrid powertrain, internal combustion in the G30 530e comes courtesy of the B48 2.0 litre turbocharged inline-four cylinder engine rated at 184 PS from 5,000 to 6,500 rpm and 300 Nm of torque from 1,350 to 4,000 rpm. This is paired with a 68 PS electric motor for a total system output of 252 PS and 420 Nm, driving the rear wheels through a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission.

The facelifted 530e brings with it an XtraBoost function, offering an additional 41 PS from its electric motor for a momentary power peak of 292 PS, yielding a 0-100 km/h sprint time of 5.9 seconds. Not only is it quicker, but it gets better eco credentials, too; a larger 12 kWh battery offers an all-electric range of 67 km, which is up from the 48 km offered by the previous version with the 9.2 kWh battery.

Inside, changes to the 5 Series over the pre-facelift include revised steering wheel controls, redesigned seats, a 12.3-inch digital instrument display and a 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen on BMW Operating System 7.0. This update also brings Parking Assistant Plus with a 360-degree camera system and a 3D view that can be accessed remotely through your smartphone.

The kit list goes on – there’s keyless entry, push-button start, four-zone automatic climate control, powered rear windscreen and manual side window sunshades, auto lights and wipers, auto-dimming mirrors, adaptive dampers and a hands-free powered bootlid. Here, the 530e also gets the Driving Assistant package that includes autonomous emergency braking, lane keeping assist and blind spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert.
