The 2020 BMW 330e Is Coming

BMW announced the G20 2020 BMW 330e and its specs. The PHEV will be able to travel up to 66 km on its battery in this 2.0 version of the sedan.

BMW does not intend to rely solely on the i series models with respect to its fleet electrification strategy. The Bavarian brand has also disclosed the first details surrounding its new 330e sedan, the plug-in hybrid sedan that is of course based on the new generation of the 3 Series.

In case you do not know, BMW was already offering a 330e in the past, but its distribution has remained discreet. With this 2.0 version, the German manufacturer clearly wants to interest a bigger audience.

Under the hood, the variant sold with a charging cable trusts a 4-cylinder turbocharged 2.0-liter engine delivering 184 horsepower. But since it is a PHEV sedan, the internal combustion engine is teamed with an electric motor housed directly in the eight-speed automatic gearbox, which adds 113 hp to the equation. The new BMW 330e develops a total power of 252 horsepower. However, the 330e has this feature called XtraBoost which, when placed in Sport mode, gives 40 additional horsepower to the mechanics, this feature that facilitates overtaking or even entries on the highway.

The 0-100 km/h announced is quite something, since it’s achieved in 5.9 seconds according to the brand. In addition, the top speed of the car is limited to 230 km/h. Autonomy in pure electric mode has also been improved, the 330e which can now travel more than 50 km. However, the battery pack has a negative effect on the space in the trunk.

The new 2020 BMW 330e is expected sometime in November, it should sell at a price slightly higher than that of an M340i xDrive.
