Source: BMW Group Munich. Two engines and a “golden steering wheel”: The new BMW 330e Sedan (combined fuel consumption: 1.8 – 1.5 l / 100 km; combined power consumption: 14.8 – 13.9 kWh / 100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 41 – 35 g / km) won the new category of plug-in hybrid vehicles in the newly created category of plug-in hybrid vehicles in the medium and medium-sized range in the free choice of the outstanding new models of 2020 carried out by the specialist magazine “Auto Bild” and the weekly magazine “Bild am Sonntag” Upper class segment carried away. In the readers’ vote and the subsequent jury evaluation, the electrified model variant of the new BMW 3 Series Sedan achieved the highest number of points of all vehicles awarded a “Golden Steering Wheel” this year. The new BMW 330e Sedan combines driving pleasure and efficiency through the intelligently controlled interaction of a four-cylinder gasoline engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and an electric drive from the BMW eDrive modular system. The dynamic character of the plug-in hybrid model is underlined in particular by the electric XtraBoost. In the case of particularly high load requirements, the system output generated jointly by both engines is briefly increased by an additional 30 kW / 40 PS. The XtraBoost is available in the SPORT mode of the driving experience switch, during kickdown maneuvers as well as after changing the gear selector switch to the M / S position and brings about a particularly spirited power development when accelerating from standstill and during intermediate sprints. The new BMW 330e Sedan completes the sprint from zero to 100 km / h in 5.8 seconds, and the plug-in hybrid drive with a system output of up to 215 kW / 292 hp and a maximum system torque of 420 Nm is also available in the models BMW 330e xDrive Sedan (combined fuel consumption: 2.0 – 1.7 l / 100 km; combined power consumption: 15.9 – 15.2 kWh / 100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 45 – 40 g / km) , BMW 330e Touring (combined fuel consumption: 1.9 – 1.7 l / 100 km; combined power consumption: 15.6 – 14.5 kWh / 100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 44 – 38 g / km) and BMW 330e xDrive Touring (combined fuel consumption: 2.2 – 1.9 l / 100 km; combined power consumption: 15.8 – 14.7 kWh / 100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 49 – 43 g / km). In all four plug-in hybrid models of the new BMW 3 Series, the sporty characteristics are additionally underlined by a model-specific drive sound adjustment, a direct and at the same time precise accelerator pedal characteristic and a specific gearshift program for the 8-speed Steptronic transmission including brake downshifts Lenkrad ”was first awarded in 1976, making it one of the most traditional awards in the automotive industry worldwide. In the 44th edition of the competition, new models in eight vehicle categories were compared with one another. After a preselection based on a reader vote, the finalists were scrutinized in detail by an expert jury made up of the editorial team and other automotive experts as part of intensive test drives. The new BMW 330e Sedan impressed the experts not only with its sporty driving characteristics and high level Efficiency of your drive system, but also with particularly advanced networking technology. This includes the standard digital service BMW eDrive Zone. It ensures that the new BMW 330e Sedan automatically switches to the purely electric operating mode when entering an urban environmental zone or other defined city areas. For the most extensive possible use of Modus Electric, the driver is also rewarded with the globally unique BMW Points bonus program. One point is credited to him for every kilometer covered without local emissions. Within a BMW eDrive zone, the use of the purely electric driving mode is awarded twice the number of points. The collected BMW Points can then be converted into credit that can be redeemed when charging the high-voltage battery at public charging stations by BMW Charging. The new BMW 330e Sedan has an electric range of 56 to 60 kilometers determined in the WLTP test cycle. This means that journeys in city traffic as well as daily commuting between home and work can largely be completed locally emission-free. The high electric range as well as the digital services BMW eDrive Zone and BMW Points offer ideal conditions for actively contributing to the reduction of CO2 emissions and at the same time further reducing the vehicle’s operating costs.
