The plug-in hybrid technology of the BMW 3 Series Sedan.

In perfect harmony: the 3 Series Sedan plug-in hybrids BMW 320e, BMW 330e and BMW 330e xDrive each combine the BMW eDrive electric drive technology with a powerful BMW combustion engine. Together the two drive units produce a driving experience that links maximum efficiency with supreme driving pleasure – and, depending on the drive mode, either locally emission-free and almost silent or with a thrillingly high torque and sufficient reserves for longer journeys as well. In the BMW 330e xDrive, the all-wheel drive system BMW xDrive, unique for plug-in hybrids in this segment, is an extra guarantee of optimum dynamics and traction. So-called recuperation, in which kinetic energy is transformed into electrical energy and fed into the battery during braking, additionally delivers a valuable contribution to the efficient driving experience.
