The 2017 330e iPerformance  is a plug-in hybrid electric four-door sedan based on the venerable BMW 3 series.  The 330e’s 7.6 kWh lithium-ion battery offers an all-electric range of 22 miles and recharges via a standard J1772 3.5 kW plug.  Its 75-horsepower eDrive electric motor and twin turbocharged 180-horsepower 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder produce a combined 248-horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque, and accelerate the 330e from 0-60 in 5.9 seconds.  The 330e features regenerative braking, an 8-speed Steptronic transmission with optional manual shifting, and four driving modes: Eco Pro, Comfort, Sport, and Sport+.  EPA estimated MPG is 72MPGe.

    The expected range is overstated by manufacturers, when you compare that to the real life use of the vehicle. However if you drive the car the way they tested you can get similar range. I can speak for BMW 330e. Drive this car in Eco pro mode with eauto drive mode, drive in non hilly road, do not use air con or heater, do not any other option in the car that uses electricity then you can come close to the stated range or can even beat it.

    I question the expected 22 mile range from BMW’s 7.6 kWh pack, especially since our Audi A3 Sportback e-tron 8.8 kWh pack regularly yields 20-22, except in the winter. Many listed PEV electric only ranges are inflated well beyond what the owner should expect, while the Audi is below normal expected range. Toyota, Kia, and Hyundai also give the PEV purchasers unrealistic expectations of pure EV range.
