New BMW 330e iPerformance Coming In 2019 With More Electric Range

BMW 330e to get electric range increased by a third.

BMW unveiled at the 2018 Paris Motor Show its all-new 3 Series Sedan (ICE), which will hit the market on March 9, 2019. At first, there will be available only conventional versions (320i, 330i, 318d, 320d, 320xDrive and 330d), but the new 330e iPerformance plug-in hybrid should be ready in summer 2019 (in the U.S. in 2020).
According to BMW, the new 330e will be able to drive up to 60 km (37 miles) in all-electric mode, which is a third more than the current version. Because the current version is rated by EPA at 14 miles (22.5 km) on 7.6 kWh battery, we assume that the new version will be rated at maybe 19 miles (30 km).
System output to be 185 kW (215 kW with a boost) and 0-100 km/h (62 mph) will take about 6.0 seconds, which sounds the same as the current generation.
