BMW 330e Sedan
System-power: 185 kW/252 hp; 0-100km/h: 6,0 s; electric range: 60 km; fuel consumption: 1.7 l/100 km; CO2 emissions from combustion engine: 39 g/km
A four-cylinder petrol engine, an electric motor and a latest-generation lithium-ion battery form the basis for the plug-in hybrid system in the new BMW 330e Sedan. It generates a combined output of 185 kW/252 hp, which can be briefly increased by up to 30 kW/41 hp courtesy of the standard XtraBoost function. This is sufficient to propel the car to 100 km/h from rest in 6.0 seconds (provisional figure). The BMW 330e Sedan due to come out in July 2019 doesn’t just deliver sporty driving pleasure in abundance, it also excels in terms of its fuel consumption figures. The car’s maximum electric range is 60 kilometres – around 50 per cent further than its predecessor.
The leading role of the BMW Group in the area of electrification is also reflected in its current engine range. At the 2019 International Geneva Motor Show, BMW presents the second generation of plug-in hybrid models in as many as three vehicles segments.
The new BMW 330e Sedan is especially impressive due to an increase in electrically powered range as compared to its predecessor model of some 50 per cent to up to 60 kilometres*, a level of fuel consumption that has been reduced to up to 1.7 litres per 100 kilometres* and CO2 emissions reduced to 39 grams per kilometre* – all combined with the sports sedan’s hallmark driving pleasure. The system output of its plug-in hybrid drive amounts to 185 kW/252 hp – with the possibility of a temporary increase by an additional 30 kW/41 hp using the standard XtraBoost. As a result, the new BMW 330e Sedan does the sprint from standing to 100 km/h in 6.0 seconds (provisional figure).
The technology of the intelligent energy management system has likewise been further optimised. Since this is now linked to the navigation system, the interaction between combustion engine and electric motor can be adapted more precisely to the route and driving situation. In the new BMW 330e Sedan and the new BMW X5 xDrive45e, a control unit that draws on navigation and sensor data is also able to optimise brake energy recuperation efficiency in HYBRID ECO PRO mode. When approaching a junction or a vehicle driving ahead, for example, recuperation can be put to particularly intensive use for the purpose of deceleration.
