The BMW 330e Saloon - Best Plug-in Hybrid 202016/01/2020
The BMW 3 Series leads the way with a host of WhatCar? awards.
The BMW 3 Series Plug-In Hybrid responds with an energy that’s electric. Combining a powerful electric motor with the familiar 2.0 litre TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder petrol engine makes the BMW 330e Saloon both powerful and efficient. The combined 292hp powertrain produces CO2 emissions of just 37g/km whilst being capable of an impressive 201.8mpg.
The intuitive hybrid technology of BMW eDrive ensures your journeys are effortless by automatically switch between the use of the petrol engine and electric motor. The result is a car that can be powered by either hybrid propulsion, petrol power or pure electric energy.
eDrive can also detect whether you’re driving in a city or out on the motorway to ensure the very best possible efficiency. In pure electric mode, the 330e Saloon provides an eRange of up to 37 miles and a 0 to 62mph acceleration of just 5.9 seconds.
The BMW 330e Saloon delivers the refined yet responsive drive you expect from BMW’s most iconic driving machine. Following in the footsteps of its non-electrified siblings the 330e has quickly gained recognition for its capabilities. WhatCar? has recently awarded the 330e Saloon best plug-in hybrid 2020 in their yearly model awards.
This completes a considerable list of WhatCar? Award titles including ‘The Safety Award’ and ‘Best Executive Car’ for the BMW 3 Series, whilst the 5 Series Saloon and 6 Series won ‘Best Luxury Car’ in their respective price ranges. What did Whatcar? have to say about the 330e;“The thing that makes the 330e so special is that, aside from a shallower boot, it's much like any other 3 Series, meaning great fun to drive. There's simply nothing in the way it handles to suggest you're carrying around enough batteries for 36 miles of zero-emission motoring. What's more, every material feels suitably expensive, the infotainment system is a cinch to use and there’s a decent amount of space in the back. The 330e is a truly great car” – WhatCar?
