2018 BMW 530e: Fuel Economy Review + Fill Up Costs

We try out the all new BMW 530e plug-in hybrid to test out its fuel economy. Equipped with a 2.0L TwinTurbo 4-cylinder engine and a battery that provided 20km of range, the 530e provides fuel-free city commuting and fuel-efficient long distance driving (video below).

Expect to get 526 kilometers (327 miles) on a full tank of gas and 14 kilometers of driving on every liter of fuel. Filling up a full tank would cost $70 (CAD) in Toronto, Canada and $35 (USD) to fill up in Detroit, USA.
