We would have gotten our 4th BMW 5 series, but opted for the Tesla instead.
In looking at the BMW 5s, they have a Hybrid now.
My math is usually not that good, but they claim 30 mpg with the Hybrid.
The standard 5 gets 34 mpg. (I know - it's 4 cylinder this year.)
But the 6 cylinder BMW 535 gets 30 mpg.
The Hybrid qualifies for $4500 Eco credit
The Hybrid runs over $10,000 more than the standard.
Am I missing something here?
