2016 BMW 3 Series Adds Plug-In Hybrid Model

The 2016 BMW 3 Series will arrive later this year with a long list of mechanical and cosmetic enhancements, not to mention a fresh addition to the model range.

Following hotly on Mercedesí coattails, BMW is introducing a plug-in hybrid version of the 3 Series called the 330e. The BMW 330e will be able to drive up to 22 miles without burning gasoline and should be able to run from 0-60 MPH in 6.1 seconds. BMW hasnít finalized those numbers yet, but released preliminary figures today along with a 140 MPH top speed and output from the powertrain of roughly 250 HP and 310 lb-ft of torque. Further details on BMWís answer to the Mercedes-Benz C350 PHEV havenít been released yet.

But BMW did announce detailed information on the rest of the 3 Series lineup. All versions of the 3 Series get new front struts with five bolt upper anchor points instead of the previous three, new rear damper technology and redesigned electric power steering. The stability control system and rear dampers are also updated for 2016 to offer improved handling.
