BMW likes to test their models in rough environments, the upcoming BMW 3-Series plug-in hybrid being also one of them. The icy roads and the freezing temperatures seemed to cause no problems for the hybrid model, a car that is powered by a 2.0-liter petrol unit as well as an electric motor.
According to the current details, power output is estimated at 245 horses and 400 Nm of torque. Considering that we talk about a hybrid model, we should expect quite good fuel economy figures.
Current assumptions point to an average of just 2 liters/100 km with CO2 emissions of 50 km/h. The lithium-ion battery will provide a zero-emission driving range of 35 kilometers.
However, when driving on electricity only, the top speed is limited at 120 km/h. In terms of styling, the new model will sport revised bumpers and a tweaked front grille.
