The combination of electric motor and BMW TwinPower Turbo combines the best of two worlds in an exceptionally dynamic and comfortable sedan: the BMW 330e. Majestic meets innovative and then combines with the sportiness and elegance of a BMW 3 Series. Impressive driving dynamics coupled with the utmost efficiency and eco-friendliness thanks to local emissions-free driving – a unique concept that is perfectly tailored to the qualities of the BMW 3 Series Sedan.
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 37 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. 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.
A high-output BMW TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder petrol engine and a high-efficiency eDrive electric motor are the driving forces of the BMW 330e Sedan. The combination of these EfficientDynamics technologies produced an innovative vehicle offering not only low fuel consumption, but also awesome driving dynamics and stability in all driving conditions.
Whether for the daily drive to work or for weekend excursions: Short trips of up to 35 kilometres can be completed in the purely electric mode, which means emission- and fuel-free driving. For longer distances or more demanding routes, the intelligent energy management ensures the most efficient combination of electric motor and combustion engine.
The eDrive button allows the driver to choose between three different electric drive modes: the standard AUTO eDRIVE mode, the purely electric MAX eDRIVE mode and the SAVE BATTERY mode, in which the charging status of the high-voltage battery is maintained at a constant level.
In the AUTO eDRIVE mode, the intelligent BMW EfficientDynamics system determines the most efficient combination of electric motor and combustion engine – depending on the driving speed and the battery charging status. This mode is divided into two phases: If the battery charging status is between 12% and 100%, you can enjoy purely electric driving at up to 80 km/h.
Electric driving fun to the max: In the MAX eDRIVE mode, you can enjoy purely electric driving at speeds of up to 120 km/h. At higher speeds or when the acceleration potential should be exhausted, the combustion engine switches on automatically.
Whether at a conventional household power socket or using the BMW i Wallbox from the comprehensive range of 360° ELECTRIC products and services – charging the high-voltage battery couldn’t be easier. You can top up while you’re out and about at one of the public charging stations.
The vehicle can be easily charged at home by connecting it to a power socket via the supplied standard charging cable and is once again ready to roll with a full battery after approximately five hours. Charging is even quicker and more convenient when done with the separately available BMW i Wallbox: This wall-mounted charging station for home use increases charging capacity and reduces the charging time, making it the ideal design accessory for BMW vehicles The installation service reacts flexibly to individual requirements. In addition to increasing the charging capacity even more, the BMW i Wallbox Plus also supports intelligent integration into the home network and smart-home functions, along with energy management systems.
The car's charging port is located behind a flap on the front left side panel. An LED light ring on the charging port make the charging status visually clear.
Always connected up to your BMW: Via smartphone (iOS or Android), not only BMW Remote Services such as remote locking are available, but also hybrid-specific functions. This ensures that you always have an overview of the consumption and efficiency values of your BMW 330e Sedan. BMW Services for every situation, which can be used inside the vehicle – and outside.
The BMW ConnectedDrive App for iOS and Android displays detailed information about the vehicle's current status, such as its location, battery level and remaining range.
The charging procedure can be controlled remotely via the week-to-view timer, and the vehicle's temperature remotely adjusted in good time ready for the next journey. Destinations, points of interest and the location of charging stations can be easily sent from the application directly to the vehicle.
BMW ConnectedDrive App also measures the efficiency of every trip and can provide suggestions on how to drive the vehicle more efficiently and extend its range.
It goes almost without saying that an innovative automobile like the BMW 330e Sedan offers the utmost comfort. The high-voltage battery is stored in such a compact manner that the approx. 370-litre luggage compartment provides ample space for everyday requirements. The standard-feature suspension ensures full driving dynamics, stability at all times and a pleasant driving feeling – even on long journeys and even when the vehicle is carrying a heavy load.
