Expected to be priced between the BMW 320i (without SST: RM 241,497) and BMW 330i (without SST: RM 286,187), the upcoming plug-in hybrid 330e is expected to be introduced in Malaysia some time next month, alongside the locally-assembled M340i.
As seen on the earlier spyshots, the Malaysian-spec BMW 330e will don the M Sport kit – essentially mirroring the exterior of the BMW 330i, down to the 18-inch Style 790 M alloy wheels.
The G20-generation BMW 330e shares its 2.0-litre petrol-electric powertrain with the F30-generation model, which offers a combined system output of 292 PS and 420 Nm.
When it arrives in Malaysia, the BMW 330e should be occupying the segment on its own, seeing that Mercedes-Benz Malaysia have yet to introduce a successor to the C350e plug-in hybrid.
To recap, the current G20 3 Series range in Malaysia comprises of these models:
- BMW 320i Sport: RM 241,497 (Price with SST: RM 248,800)
- BMW 330i M Sport: RM 286,187 (Price with SST: RM 293,800)
