In terms of performance, the BMW Brilliance New Energy Vehicle, as they introduced the model earlier this month, will benefit from a powertrain that combines a conventional engine developing 215 horsepower and an electric unit offering 94 horsepower. You will be able to run 100% electric for about 75 kilometers but using the hybrid ensemble will increase the driving range to 400 kilometers.
