Pretty much all the components in the car's plug-in hybrid powertrain have been revised. The lithium-ion battery pack now has great energy density, storing 12 kilowatt hours of energy compared with the prior model's 9.2 kWh. The electric drive motor, which is integrated with the eight-speed automatic transmission, is now rated for 113 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque, gains of 2 hp and 9 lb-ft. The motor and battery help improve EV driving range.

The 745e slinks around silently and efficiently on electric power for longer distances, yet has more get-up-and-go than before thanks to the bigger engine and stronger motor. All that, without sacrificing the sublime ride and quietness of any other 7 Series.
