BMW pulled the wraps off the 3-Series plug-in hybrid prototype at this year’s edition of the Group Innovation Days.
While we can’t see the exact exterior styling as this hybrid model is based on the upcoming model, which is currently in the works, we get to know what sits under the hood.
We talk about a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline unit and an electric motor for a total of 245 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque. Fuel economy figures are rated at only 2 liters/100 km or 117 mpg US.
The BMW 3-Series plug-in hybrid emits only 50 g/km of CO2 emissions with an estimated electric drive range of 35 kilometers.
As the name of the event suggests, the company also presented their innovations in this domain. The model in question comes with a lithium-ion battery pack placed under the load compartment. According to BMW, the car can be charged from a standard socket.
