New plug-in hybrid BMW 330e gets XtraBoost performance mode and 37-mile pure electric range

BMW has followed up the reveal of the new six-cylinder M340i xDrive with the debut of the new plug-in hybrid 330e, which will go on sale in summer 2019. 

Like the previous generation 330e, the new model uses a 182bhp turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine mated to an electric motor, which produces 67bhp. Total system output is rated at 249bhp, just as before.

However, BMW claims that this new, lighter model can now do 37 miles of electric running on a single charge – an increase of 12 miles over the model is replaces. Fuel economy increases a little to 138mpg, while claimed CO2 emissions have been slashed to 39g/km. Top speed on battery power only now stands at 68mph.

BMW claims that performance has increased, too. 0-62mph now takes six seconds flat, while the 330e’s top speed is 143mph. There’s also a new XtraBoost function, which is enabled by selecting the Sport drive mode. This summons extra battery power from the 12.0kWh pack, and boosts the output of the electric motor, taking total system power to 289bhp. Drive is sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic BMW Steptronic transmission.

Boot space stands at 375 litres – down 105 litres due to the integration of the battery pack.

Prices have not yet been revealed, but we’d anticipate the new 330e to eclipse the outgoing model with a price tag approaching £40,000 when it goes on sale in July. SE, Sport and M Sport trim versions will be available.
