Superior driving dynamics and exemplary efficiency are the key characteristics of the new BMW 3 Series Sedan

The BMW 330e Sedan has more range and power than before as well as a new on-demand performance system
Due to be launched in summer 2019, the BMW 330e Sedan is 30% faster than its predecessor, delivering a 50% increase in electric-only range to go with a reduction in CO2 emissions of more than 10%.

A major new addition to the new 330e is the standard-fit XtraBoost - an on-demand performance system that increases power output of the plug-in hybrid drive from 248bhp by 40bhp at the touch of a button. As well as the extra power, the updated plug-in hybrid can cover a distance of up to 60km using electric power alone. 

The plug-in hybrid drivetrain comprises a 181bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo Technology aligned to an electric motor that generates a continuous output of 67bhp and a peak output of 111bhp. Together, the two drive units develop a total output of 248bhp along with a peak torque of 420Nm, but extra power can be sourced when selecting the Sport driving mode. This activates the XtraBoost system that draws on power stored in the high voltage battery. 

The new BMW 330e Sedan can accelerate from zero to 100km/h in six seconds and can go on to a top speed of 230km/h. It can travel up to 110km/h when running on electric power alone - 30km/h faster than the predecessor model. In order to save space, the BMW 330e's electric motor is integrated into the eight-speed Steptronic transmission. This means the hybrid-specific transmission is only 15mm longer than the corresponding versions for conventionally powered BMW 3 Series sedans.

The BMW 330e also offers a model-specific sound design to deliver a suitably throaty engine noise when the car is put through its paces. The aim is to offer the emotional impact of sports car performance to go with the proven qualities of a plug-in hybrid model. The hybrid-specific optional equipment features also include an acoustic pedestrian protection function, so that those about to cross the road can hear the car approaching when it is in electric-only mode.
