The German manufacturer has introduced a modification 330e

BMW introduced the 330e plug-in hybrid. The sedan is equipped with a two-liter gasoline turbo engine and the latest generation eDrive electric drive. Compared to its predecessor, the electric car’s stroke has increased by 50 percent, to 60 kilometers, and the declared fuel consumption on the combined cycle has decreased to 1.7 liters per 100 kilometers.

The impact of “turbo” in the BMW 330e is 184 power. Integrated into the eight-speed automatic transmission electric motor produces 68 hp. The total recoil of the hybrid power plant is 252 hp and 420 Nm of torque. From a standstill to a hundred kilometers per hour, the BMW 330e accelerates in six seconds exactly. The maximum speed – 230 kilometers per hour – in electric mode is reduced to 140 kilometers per hour.

In Sport mode, the XtraBoost function is activated, increasing recoil by 41 power. It works even with a minimum level of battery charging (a 12-kilowatt-hour battery pack is placed under the rear seats) and a kickdown. In addition, for the hybrid, BMW prepared special settings for the response of the electronic gas pedal and a specific algorithm for the operation of the gearbox.

The BMW 330e Sedan is equipped with a sound enhancement system in the cabin, as well as a pedestrian audible warning function when the vehicle is moving on an electric belt. For a hybrid, all the same equipment is available for usual 3 Series: adaptive M suspension, steering gear with variable gear ratio, M-brakes and an extended list of electronic security systems. The standard equipment 330e includes autonomous heater / cooler cabin.

The hybrid market debut is scheduled for next summer.
