Under the hood of the new 330e, there is a 2.0-liter BMW 184-horsepower four-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine, and an additional electric motor located in an eight-speed automatic transmission provides 113 hp. Total power is 252 hp It is noteworthy that this plug-in hybrid has an interesting function called XtraBoost, which works almost the same as nitrous oxide. Putting the 330e in sport mode, activating this feature gives an extra 40 hp. for a period of up to 10 seconds, giving the sedan a total power of 292 hp

BMW claims that the 330e can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 5.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 230 km / h, although it is not yet clear whether these figures are achieved with XtraBoost or not. The 330e can also be equipped with a standard complement to trim levels, including the elegant M Sport variant with improved adaptive suspension and M Sport brakes.
