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.
INTELLIGENT ENERGY MANAGEMENT.
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.
When the battery charging status is low, the SAVE BATTERY mode enables the battery to be charged by the combustion engine or allows the charging status to be maintained. In this way, the driver can save the battery capacity for purely electric driving later.
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.

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.
When it comes to cabin temperature, the 330e provides a high level of comfort and convenience. Its powerful high-voltage battery enables drivers to precondition the temperature of the vehicle via the automatic air conditioning system while the internal-combustion engine is turned off.
This works independently whether the vehicle is charging in a private garage or parked on the side of the road or in an underground car park.
Given a sufficient battery charge, the cabin can be brought to a pleasant temperature before departure, without generating emissions. This function can be activated via a timer in the iDrive menu or by using the BMW Remote app for plug-in hybrid models on a smartphone.
