|   Saturday, January 16, 2016
After the BMW X5 40e and BMW 2 Series Active Tourer 220xe, BMW continues the policy to promote plug-in hybrid models at competitive prices, comparable to petrol engines versions with similar power.
BMW 330E plug-in hybrid is available from 36,650 Euro without VAT, a price comparable to the gasoline version 330i with the same power, and is already available for orders. It is ready to debut on the market in March with the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer 220xe.


BMW continued the pricing policy for this model and like other plug-in hybrid models, the BMW 330e is available at a price similar to the BMW 330i, the petrol version with a 4-cylinder engine that develops a total power of 185 kW / 252 HP. BMW 330e is available with a price of 36,650 Euro excluding VAT compared to 34,450 Euro without VAT for the BMW 330i.

The difference of about 2,000 euros is compensated by additional standard equipment for the hybrid model: Steptronic automatic gearbox, dashboard with extensive content and package storage compartment, all with a total value of 2079.84 euros without VAT. Also worth mentioning is the fact that the diesel version of similar power (BMW 330d 190 kW / 258 hp) is available at a starting price of 39,650 Euro without VAT.

The BMW 3 Series 330e and BMW 2 Series Active Tourer 220xe complete the hybrid plug-in range, opened by BMW X5 40e. The two new models are already available for order and will make thier debut on streets around the world starting from March next year.

The BMW eDrive components developed in the project with BMWi are now entering the plug-in hybrid models, developed as part of the BMW brand. Essentially, BMW eDrive technology includes the electric motor, high voltage lithium-ion battery and electronic power management.

The four-cylinder engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology develops 135 kW / 184 hp. The electric motor develops 65 kW / 88 hp. System power is 185 kW / 252 hp with maximum torque of 420 Nm (average fuel consumption on a combined cycle: 2.1-1.9 l / 100 km, CO2 emissions: 49-44 g / km).
BMW eDrive offers a constant torque of 100 Nm, and can provide a short boost of up to 250 Nm. Acceleration from 0-100 km / h needs 6.1 seconds and top speed is capped at 225 km / h.

Top speed in the electric mode is 120 km / h. Range in electric mode is up to 40 kilometers and in everyday driving conditions up to 600 kilometers.
The high-voltage battery can be fully charged in about three hours and 15 minutes from a household outlet by using standard cable of the equipment; refueling is faster (two hours and 15 minutes) and more convenient with BMW 360 ° ELECTRIC (include BMW i Wallbox); ChargeNow mobility service allows quick and easy location and use of public charging stations.

The electric motor is located in front of the Steptronic transmission with eight-speed (standard equipment), so that transmission reports can be used when the vehicle is running in pure electric mode too.

The boot provides a practically usable capacity of 370 liters and a full-load facility, despite the addition of an electric propulsion system.
