BMW opens a new door for its popular 3 Series models with the BMW 330e Plug-In Hybrid.

BMW is no stranger to hybrid technology -- its i8 hybrid sports car turned heads and impressed critics upon its debut several years ago. Now, that technology is finding its way into more well-established models like the 2021 330e Plug-In Hybrid.

The 2021 BMW 330e Plug-In Hybrid literally electrifies the brand's popular sport sedan. It's a bold move that aims to maximize both power and efficiency while modernizing a famous nameplate.

On its own this powerplant makes a respectable 181 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque. The model's party trick, however, is its additional electric motor. The extra powerplant makes 111 horsepower and 196 pound-feet of torque. Together, the two powertrains make a combined 288 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed ZF transmission transfers power to the wheels.

Performance
