BMW is continuing its electrification offensive by launching a new plug-in hybrid version in the 3 Series and 5 Series range. And “good news for wallets”, this is a version with access to PHEV technology.

A combined output of 204 hp

The 320th and 520th – this is their name – combine a 163 hp 2.0L 4-cylinder petrol engine and a 113 hp electric unit for a combined power of 204 hp and 350 Nm of torque.

This cavalry is transmitted to the rear wheels via an 8-speed manual gearbox or to all four wheels using the XDrive all-wheel drive.

The new BMW 320e Sedan goes from 0 to 100 km / h in 7.6 seconds and reaches a top speed of 225 km / h (7.9 seconds and 220 km / h for its Touring estate variant) while the 520th Sedan accelerates from standstill to 100 km / h in 7.9 seconds with a top speed of 225 km / h (8.2 seconds and 218 km / h for the 520th Touring).

In purely electric driving mode, the new plug-in hybrid versions of both models can reach a top speed of 140 km / h.

45 to 61 km of electric autonomy
