BMW 3-Series Plug-in Hybrid spied once again ahead of this year’s launch

by SpeedLux

A prototype of the BMW 3-Series Plug-in Hybrid was spied yet again and this time conducting winter testing ahead of a full reveal scheduled for later this year.

Some time back the spy images were released by spy photographers and now it has been spied yet again undergoing testing. In these images we can see that the model will look virtually the same as the conventional-powered model. As a result the prototype spotted here wears minimal camouflage as there’s nothing significant to hide, except for the plug-in cap sitting underneath the A-pillar.

Set to come out later this year as a 2015MY, the plug-in hybrid variant of the 3-Series will like utilize a variation of the hybrid technology installed in the X5 eDrive concept. That model comes fitted with a 4-cylinder 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo engine working together with a 95 HP (70 kW) electric motor and a lithium-ion battery pack.

It will offers a combined output of 272 HP (200 kW) and in electric mode it can run for 18.6 miles (30 km) while as a hybrid it has a fuel consumption of just 3.8 liters / 100 km (61.9 mpg US or 74.3 mpg UK).
