The new BMW 330e offers outstanding efficiency, combined with the sporty elegance of the BMW 3 Series Saloon. Welcome to the best of both worlds.
Experience incredibly low consumption from a high performance car. Thanks to BMW eDrivetechnology, the electric motor and high powered engine in the BMW 330e work in perfect harmony. In addition, the plug-in hybrid offers optimum traction and agility, and thanks to the enhanced sporty chassis setup, outstanding dynamics are guaranteed in all driving modes.
A BMW 3 Series with the fuel consumption of a small car: Thanks to BMW eDrive technology from BMW EfficientDynamics, a range of up to 40 kilometres is possible in the purely electric mode – with zero local emissions and zero fuel consumption. The high-voltage battery is stored underneath the luggage compartment – which, with a volume of approx.
370 litres, is ideal for day-to-day requirements, with no adverse effect on comfort, functionality or the sense of roominess. The “eDrive” lettering at the c-pillars indicates the vehicle’s innovative drive technology. In addition, the plug-in hybrid offers optimum traction and agility thanks to the sportily attuned suspension and guarantees outstanding dynamics in all driving modes.
As a result, the BMW 330e Sedan exceeds all expectations with regards to driving dynamics too. A forward-looking vehicle concept that is truly without equal.
Intelligent energy management is one of the main pillars of the BMW eDrive concept. This system coordinates the interaction of all drive components in order to combine the best possible efficiency with great driving dynamics. Intelligent energy management optimises the hybrid drive's power-efficiency factor by predictively choosing the appropriate drive. For example, available navigation data is used to identify in advance the sections of the route and driving situations that are best suited for the electric motor or for charging the high-voltage battery.
In situations in which the combustion engine would have a low power-efficiency factor, the system shifts up to a higher load range with a better power-efficiency factor. That means that the combustion engine produces additional power. This power is used to create electricity for the battery via the electric motor/generator, which can later be used for electric driving or efficiently supporting the combustion engine. It also controls the electric motor/generator, so that kinetic energy is transformed into electrical energy during coasting and when braking.
In combination with ECO PRO mode, intelligent energy management adapts all vehicle systems, including all auxiliary components and comfort functions, to be fuel-consumption conscious and highly efficient.
The eDrive button allows the driver to choose between three eDrive modes: the standard AUTO eDRIVE mode, the purely electric MAX eDRIVE mode and the SAVE BATTERY mode, which maintains the charging status at a constant level.
