Americans Love Their SUVs
With gas prices remaining at record lows for going on a third straight year, sales for SUVs from all manufacturers remain at the highest levels ever.

All offers are for buyers with approved credit. If you need something a little larger, the midsize X3 has an offer for just $379 a month on a lease or 0.9 percent APR for a purchase. The big dog is the X5, with a number of finance options as low as $539 a month on a lease.
‘M’ Means Business
If you’re at all familiar with BMW, you know that any vehicle with the “M” designation means that car or SUV incorporates much of the technology learned from BMW’s racing team. “M” stands for “Motorsports,” and you can bet that any M class car you choose will provide an exhilarating driving experience. Right now qualified buyers can drive a 2016 M235i xDrive Coupe off the lot for a lease payment of just $459 a month. Choose the convertible version of that car and your hair will be blowing in the wind for just 30 bucks more a month. Both cars also have a 0.9 percent traditional finance offer for qualified buyers.
There is an “i” in “i”
If you’ve been saying to yourself, “I really want something fun to drive that’s great on gas and good for the environment,” look no further than the BMW i series. You can lease an i3 for just $269 a month, taking advantage of the latest in hybrid technology. While the i3 is praised for its sporty handling, if you really want a thrill you need to think about taking the i8 home. This technological marvel is more fun than a roller coaster and right now qualified buyers can get 0.9 percent financing on a traditional purchase. It doesn’t matter if you want a versatile X machine or something a little sportier, you know you want a BMW and now is the time to get one at Chapman BMW.

Plug-in Hybrid Top of BMW Lineup
Using technology pioneered in the i3 and i8, BMW has added a top-of-the-line luxury plug-in hybrid to its fleet of superior driving machines. The 2017 BMW 740e xDrive iPerformance executive sedan is on its way to Chapman BMW, offering a high-performance solution for people who demand the best. The integration of a TwinTurbo gasoline engine, electric motor and 8-speed transmission deliver a very healthy 322 horsepower. Combined with BMW’s intelligent all-wheel xDrive system, the result is an efficient and powerful sophisticated sedan. The addition to the BMW 7-Series lineup can go as fast as 75 mph using just the electric motor. It is rated to get the equivalent of 64 mpg in combined city and highway driving by the Environmental Protection Agency.
Choose Best Driving Mode for Efficiency
Get behind the wheel of the 740e xDrive and you’ll find a selection of driving modes geared to produce the highest efficiency from your new 740e xDrive. The car starts out in AUTO eDRIVE, which is the default setting to conserve the most energy while still providing a dynamic driving experience. If you want to solely rely on the electrical motor, just switch to MAX eDRIVE. In this mode, you can still activate the gas engine if you push firmly down on the accelerator pedal. The last setting is BATTERY CONTROL, which allows the driver to input a charge range that can be used later on.
Driving Dynamics Range From Comfort to Sport
Another switch on the console adjusts the driving dynamics of the 740e xDrive, letting the operator choose from COMFORT, SPORT or ECO PRO. This puts you in control of the accelerator response, suspension control, steering and transmission. For a luxurious ride that smooths out all of the highway bumps, select the COMFORT mode. Increase the damper and accelerator response with the SPORT mode, which turns those Sunday country road drives into lasting memories. The ECO PRO mode gives you the most range for using the all-electric function of your new BMW. Along with other energy saving features, this mode activates a coasting function that saves power.
Charging Your EV has Never Been Easier
Bringing the 740e xDrive iPerformance sedan back up to full battery power is as simple as plugging in a wall lamp. You can choose between a standard 120V home power station, or opt for the more powerful BMW Charging Station. A ChargeNow access card comes with every vehicle and gives you access to public charging stations all across the country. The new BMW 7-Series xDrive plug-in hybrid also includes the luxurious interior and technology you come to expect from the automaker. See it soon and take a test drive at Chapman BMW.
Emission Free With Plenty of Power
Choose one of the electric, hybrid or plug-in hybrid BMW models from Chapman BMW and you’ll receive the most advanced electric propulsion system available. Known simply as eDrive, the modern power system delivers both impressive performance and fuel savings, but also has zero emissions when driven in the pure electrical state. By developing a totally new motor and transmission system, the engineers at BMW have created an engine with a lot of torque that remains the same whether you are just leaving your garage or have reached highway speeds. This provides surprising agility and a pleasant driving experience when maneuvering through a crowded city or taking your BMW out on the open highway. Inspect the new BMW inventory of electric vehicle options at Chapman BMW.
Powerful Batteries Benefit From Cooling
The lithium-ion high performance battery that comes in all BMWs equipped with eDrive benefits from a high-tech cooling system that lets the battery remain at a prime temperature to both receive and hold a charge. This not only increases the performance of the battery, but also increases its life expectancy. Because the BMW eDrive uses both intelligent energy management and brake regeneration to produce an electrical charge, the range of electric and hybrid BMWs has increased significantly. Utilize one of more than 28,000 charging stations in the U.S., or just plug your vehicle into a 220V socket at home to bring the charge back to the top.
There is an “I” in BMW
Although there may be no “I” in team, there definitely is one in BMW, and that “I” is paving the way for future electric technology. Both the i3 and i8 have not only exceeded expectations in sales, but are also providing a testing ground for the company to increase both range and power. BMW i is the brainchild of the BMW EfficientDynamics group. First released in 2013, the i3 and i8 are built for a changing world where traffic congestion is a normal part of life. The day where these cars not only provide an emission-free travel experience, but also communicate with each other is not far away. You can get onboard the “I” train now by taking a trip to Chapman BMW.
iPerformance Leading the Parade to Lower Emissions
Whether you choose the 330e, 740e or X5 xDrive40e, the new electric and hybrid models from BMW are helping to clean the air and save the planet. For the hybrid and plug-in hybrid models, a small gas engine works in concert with the electric eDrive motor to provide instant acceleration, ensuring you get the same pleasure driving these vehicles as you would any other BMW.
