2020 BMW 330e Specs, Xtraboost Performance, Features & More
Here is The New Updates of 2020 BMW 330e. The 2020 BMW 3 Series will be presented at the Los Angeles show in a plug-in hybrid version. This Sedan, which plugs into the sector, has CO2 emissions of 39 g / km.
In the race to reduce the carbon footprint, BMW wants to show that he is one of the best students. Next, to the i3 electric city car, the Munich manufacturer continues to develop its range of plug-in hybrid vehicles that should have at least seven models next year, including the famous i8 sports car. Unveiled at the last World Cup in Paris, the seventh generation of the Series 3 will be able to connect to the sector, as its predecessor.
The 330th retains the same power as the model it replaces, but the technology evolves significantly, at the cost of performance. If the engine is still the 4-cylinder 2-liter gasoline turbo twin-scroll (double-entry) of 184 horsepower, it is now associated with an electric module with a power ranging from 50 kW (68 hp) to 80 kW (109 hp) thanks to the Xtraboost system bringing extra energy to the 4-cylinder in certain situations. Integrated into the case of the 8-speed automatic transmission, the electric motor is powered by a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 12 kWh.

These new accumulators allow pushing peaks in zero emission mode up to 140 km/h, instead of 120 km/h previously. And the 330th claims an electric range of 60 km, which represents a 50% increase over the previous model. Result: the official consumption is 1.7 l/100 km according to the WLTP standard, which represents CO2 emissions of only 39 g/km.
The older generation rejected 44 g / km of CO2. The performances have not been forgotten. BMW ensures that its Series 3 plug-in hybrid reaches 100 km/h in just 6 seconds. Revisions should also progress, in favor of driving the pleasure.

Convenient side, the installation of the battery under the 40/20/40 rear seat results in a loss of storage volume. The trunk thus displays a capacity of 375 liters. The Series 3 plug-in hybrid will be launched on the market at the end of the first half of 2019.
