For those drivers who are looking for a hybrid that is fun-to-drive and doesn’t make drivers compromise on what they like and look for out of a luxury vehicle, make sure to keep the 2017 BMW iPerformance 330e in mind! With its impressive horsepower and torque output, the new plug-in hybrid BMW model easily sidesteps the number one criticism against hybrids, which is lack of power. Here at your BMW dealers near Chula Vista, BMW of El Cajon, we can’t wait to check out everything that this plug-in hybrid has to offer!
The four-door 2017 BMW iPerformance 330e is the latest edition in the BMW 3 Series lineup, and it’s first plug-in hybrid. The five-passenger sedan will feature the eDrive technology that is featured on other BMW hybrid models, such as the BMW i3 and BMW i8. It will come powered by 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline-four-cylinder engine that generates 180 horsepower and 215 lb-ft of torque. It will work in concert with an electric motor that is connected to a 7.6 kWh lithium-ion battery that brings the combined output up to 248 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. It comes paired to an eight-speed Steptronic Sport automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive.
The plug-in hybrid’s battery can be recharged by using any domestic power outlet, and BMW engineers say that it will charge in 3.5 hours from a standard power outlet and in less than 2 hours on a fast charger. Drivers also have the ability to use the electric power to heat or cool the cabin via a smartphone app while the car is still plugged-in and charging.
