BMW 3 series a powerful yet fuel efficient hybrid car
|   Thursday, December 27, 2012
Hybrid power train is the latest trend in the car world. Each and every one of the leading car manufacturing brands is struggling with the competition for cutting down the fuel intake of their car. Fuel efficiency and environmental pollution are two of the leading concerns of the modern world. And the car manufacturers are trying to design models that will have the solution to both the problems.

The latest inclusion in this list is the brand new BMW 3 series.
The BMW 3 series is one of the bestselling hybrids cars in recent times. The car combines internal combustion petrol driven engine with one run by electricity. So basically has the criteria required to be called a hybrid car.
The aim of all hybrid cars is to go green. The fuel intake of a hybrid car is very low, so that there is minimal stress on the non-renewable resources of energy from this car. The car should cover the maximum distance possible using the minimum amount of non-renewable fuel resource.

The other part of a hybrid car should be to minimise the release of environmental pollutants. The amount of harmful gases that is emitted by a hybrid car affects the amount of pollutants that is present in the air. So a hybrid car should be environment friendly.

The BMW 3 series can be both, but is seldom so. The car can be driven in one of the several modes, one of which is the eco pro mode. The car can be both fuel efficient and eco-friendly when driven at low acceleration in the eco pro mode, but it is seldom driven satisfying these conditions.

If you move on to any other driving mode of the car then the car is all about the speed and thrill. The BMW 3 series has all the required specifications to make it comparable to any sports car. When operated in the sport+ mode, the BMW 3 series blazes through the highway roads.
The design of the car is very impressive. It has all the essential features required in the design of a hybrid car. The internal combustion engine is well in sync with the electric motor. The car can conserve some energy when it is operated, although not as much as the other hybrid cars, but then it makes up for this in the other aspects of the car.

The car packs a powerful engine. It can produce about 340 HP which is enough to produce speeds of up to 155 miles per hour. The pickup of the car is also very nice; it can reach 60 miles per hour in 5.3 seconds. These figures are pretty impressive.

The car consumes one gallon of fuel per 48 miles, which is great. It also emits only 139 gm. of CO2 per kilometre. So it is qualifies as a good hybrid car. The car is priced at about 40,000 pounds, which is quite costly, but then the car is packed with features and is well worth the price.
