The car caught in the spied photos is just a prototype that the BMW is preparing for a future generation of plug-in hybrid version of the 3 Series sedan.
The German luxury car manufacturer is preparing the next generation of low emission cars, and right now, they are working on the perfect green car, in the persona of the 3-Series Hybrid.
The reports talk about a 2.0-liter engine developing 272 horsepower, backed up by an electric motor. The eDrive is expected to be quite fast, with a whole range of powertrain.
Last year, the German manufacturer came out with an X5 concept car, which could run on full electric mode for up to 20 miles and at speeds reaching 75 mph (120km/h).
One hour per day you can actually commute without using petrol, as the BMW would give you the ride of your life.
Talking about mileage, we might state that the eDrive plug-in hybrid is great on fuel consumption. With a car doing 250 km/h, a 3.8l/100km is just more than enough.
