DESIGN & SAFETY
Building off the award winning design that has propelled BMW to legend status, the 330e fits seamlessly into the BMW 3 series model lineup. With it’s classic three-box design, the vehicle upholds the design tradition of the 3 series – long bonnet, short overhangs, long wheelbase and set-back passenger compartment – with a twist. The sporty-elegant exterior is harmoniously coordinated, conveying aesthetics and dynamics as soon as you set eyes on it. With their horizontal slats, the intricately designed air inlets in the front apron combine with the front lights to emphasize the wide stance on the road. But it’s not just the front that’s an eye-catcher. The strikingly shaped rear bumper has two horizontal lines and the rear lights with LED technology are set wide apart, ensuring that the 330e retains its unmistakable appearance at night as well. Unique design elements reveal the 330e as distinctly hybrid, including a charging socket panel located on the left front quarter, eDrive badging and sharp blue accents throughout. And with its high-voltage battery pack strategically stored in a compact manner, the 330e provides a whopping 370-liters of storage capacity, providing ample space for all your gear. Pretty and practical!
COMFORT & CONVENIENCE
The sophisticated design and top-quality craftsmanship of the interior is evident at the very first glance. Inside the BMW 330e, you’ll discover the same lavish comforts as any other BMW 3 Series with a few added elements that include an updated instrument panel display that relays hybrid driving information, an eMode driving mode and a fuel cap release button. Chrome highlights and high-gloss Black surfaces underscore the 330e’s elegant design, while a spacious interior, with practical storage possibilities and, a driver-oriented cockpit, make it extremely easy to operate and stay connected.
PERFORMANCE & POWER
Under the hood, the iPerformance hybrid employs the vaunted 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline-4 that is the gold standard for turbocharged power. When you add direct injection and a 88-horsepower eDrive electric motor to the equation, the BMW 330e iPerformance edition shells out 252 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. Paired with a responsive eight-speed automatic gearbox, the BMW 330e Plug-in Hybrid will take you from zero to 62 mph in just 6.1 seconds. A 7.6 kWh battery provides plenty of electrical power and provides an electric driving range of 25 miles — more than enough for the average commute. Further amplifying the performance of the BMW 330e are six available drive modes — standard Eco Pro, Comfort and Sport modes as well as Auto eDrive, Battery Save and Max eDrive modes. Each mode allows you to customize your drive to deliver peak fuel efficiency, maximum power output or to conserve battery power.
