BMW has been one of the better automakers when it comes to weaning itself off fossil fuels. That's in large part thanks to its i sub-brand, which includes the excellent i8 coupe and the good-but-expensive i3 city car. Both cars were designed from the ground up to be electric vehicles, and both make extensive use of composites and carbon fiber. But they aren't for everyone, and neither are they your only options if you want a plug-in hybrid EV that wears the famous blue and white propellor badge.
Meet the most recent addition to BMW's PHEV line: the 2018 BMW 530e iPerformance.

When Wisconsin-based tech company Three Square Market offered to pay for its employees to be voluntarily microchipped last summer, the Internet was aghast. But just days before the so-called “chip party” at the 3SM company headquarters, people at the DEFCON hacking conference were eagerly lining up and paying to get microchip implants injected into the subdermal fascia between their thumbs and forefingers.
This juxtaposition begs the question: are these chip implants a step toward an invasive dystopian future where employers track their subjects’ every movement? Or are they simply an easy way to log in to accounts and open doors with the flick of a wrist? With a small but growing number of chipped individuals (between 50,000 and 100,000 according to estimates from biohacking company Dangerous Things) taking the plunge, society may soon find out.What we’re talking about when we talk about microchips
Microchip implants are generally shaped like cylinders. They contain a small microchip, a bio-safe epoxy resin, and a copper antenna wire coil encased in lead-free borosilicate glass or soda-lime Schott 8625 biocompatible glass. Microchips used for both animals and humans are field powered and have no battery or power source. Therefore, they are inert until they come within the field produced by a reader device, which implants communicate with over a magnetic field.
