To recap the G20 330e’s specs, the 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine combines its power with an electric motor to produce a maximum output of 292 PS and 420 Nm of torque. 0-100 km/h is zapped in 5.9 seconds.
The additional horsepower gained from the previous F30 330e is achieved through the XtraBoost function, it pushes out an extra 40 horsepower for 10 seconds.
In theory, it is capable of travelling in full electric mode for 55 – 68 km, which significantly more than the F30 330e at about 35 km.
Until recently, or rather until Thailand caught up, Malaysia was one of the top 3 markets for BMW plug-in hybrids. Still, BMW Malaysia will most likely offer the 330e, pending more clarity on locally assembled hybrid incentives in the 2020 NAP.
The quest for automotive knowledge began as soon as the earliest memories. Various sources information, even questionable ones, have been explored including video games, television, magazines, or even internet forums. Still stuck in that rabbit hole.
