BMW present the final version of its 3 Series hybrid. It uses the same engine as the 5 Series hybrid and thus offers better performance and lower consumption.Show an average consumption of less than 6 liters per 100 km while having 340 horses available, it is now possible and more specifically at BMW ActiveHybrid on 3.
This hybrid gasoline embarked the next generation of hybrid developed by the Munich company and already inaugurated by the ActiveHybrid5. Here, no change, the engine is the same as it is the winPower Turbo 304 horses present on the 335i. Associated with a 55 horsepower electric motor housed in the gearbox automatic eight-speed, all deliver 340 horsepower (against 355 for the series 5). In terms of performance and consumption, the results are better because the car is lighter (even if she wins 135 kg in the transformation). She thus claimed a 0-100 km / h in 5.3 seconds, average fuel consumption of 5.9 liters and release of 139 g CO2/km.
It also offers the ability to travel up to 4 km in electric mode and a freewheel in return, up to 160 km / h. Trunk capacity is less amputated by the battery, the loss amounts to 90 liters leaving a balance of 390 liters.
Only a few cosmetic touches make that discrete hybrid version which should be trading at a price. Therefore, the version without the hybrid system (335i) indeed starts at just over 50,000 euros.
