About BMW ActiveHybrid 3

We had high hopes that the ActiveHybrid 3 would be a more environmentally friendly option to the M3, given its impressive acceleration, but we were disappointed to find that it is not the most engaging 3 Series to drive. Even while the seamless transition between electric and hybrid petrol engine is amazing, this car is doomed to remain somewhat of an anomaly in markets that are dominated by diesel such as the UK.

BMW doesn’t construct its hybrids like anyone else. The ActiveHybrid 3 is not intended to provide the best possible economy; rather, it is intended to close the performance gap between the 335i and the new M3 that is scheduled to be released in the following year.

It combines a 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine with a 54-horsepower electric motor for a combined output of 335 horsepower and 450 Newton-meters of torque. It is capable of traveling 2.4 miles solely on electric power, and an autonomous “sailing mode” can turn off the engine while it is in motion, even when traveling at highway speeds.

The engine already has a good amount of torque, but the addition of the electric motor that is integrated into the eight-speed automatic gearbox makes the power distribution much smoother, and it has a significant amount of punch. The boisterous engine tone has also been preserved, which contributes to the sensation that you are driving a sporty vehicle when you crank the engine all the way to the limiter.

In light of this, it is unfortunate that our test vehicle, which had the regular springs and dampers installed, had a front end that bobbed around, and that the vehicle rolled from side to side when it turned turns. To a certain extent, this is due to the additional weight of the batteries and the electronics; to address this issue, we suggest that you acquire the optional adaptive dampers.

Because BMW designed the 3 Series from the beginning with the intention of it becoming a hybrid vehicle, the battery pack is able to fit neatly under the trunk floor. Despite this, the space has decreased from 480 liters to 390 liters, but there has been no change to the amount of interior space.

BMW isn’t trying to hide the fact that this car is geared toward gas-hungry regions like the United States and Japan, despite the fact that it has outstanding fuel economy given the amount of power it can produce. Because of this, the company anticipates that it will only sell 100 cars per year in the UK.
