530e HP question

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I have a 330e and am planning on swapping it for a 530e. Both models come with a 180 HP gas engine. The 330e has a 7.6 KW battery pack with an 87 HP motor; the 530e comes with a 9.2 kw battery pack and a 111 HP motor.

But both claim the same 248 HP, 310 lb ft of torque. How is that? Has BMW underrated the 530e?

The powertrain is controlled by software and thats how they have set it up. I don't think its underrated, but limited.

That sounds likely. My guess is that is to qualify the car for California clean air highway stickers (the 530e is listed in California as a qualifying vehicle).
