BMW showcases electrified models at Geneva Motor Show 2019

BMW arrived at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show with an electrified medley crew ranging from sedans to SUVs. The new and updated 7 Series sedan made its public debut at the show alongside the plug-in hybrid variants of the X3, new-gen 3 Series, new-gen X5, 5 Series and the 2 Series Active Tourer. Apart from these, the BMW Individual M850i Night Sky also celebrated its first public appearance at the Geneva stage. 

The plug-in hybrid variant of the X3 will go on sale in December 2019. It will be the first vehicle in BMW’s line-up to be sold with both a conventional combustion engine and a plug-in hybrid system. Meanwhile, the all-electric version of the X3 will arrive in 2020. 

The Bavarian carmaker sold more than 1,40,000 units of electrical and plug-in hybrid vehicles in 2018 – an increase of 38.4 per cent over the previous year. For 2019, the carmaker aims have more than half a million electrified vehicles on the road. By 2025 the BMW Group wants to have at least 25 electrified models in their line-up. 

BMW X3 xDrive30e:

With its latest battery technology, the X3 xDrive30e is reported to have an electric range of upto 50 kilometres. And combined fuel consumption has been reduced to around 2.4 litres per 100 kilometres, thanks to the updated BMW eDrive technology. The 250hp four-cylinder petrol motor is mated to a 30 kW/41 hp electric system which enables the X3 xDrive30e to achieve 0-100kmph in just 6.5 seconds. 

BMW 330e:

The new-gen 3 Series gets an electrified variant with a range of up to 60kms (up by 50 per cent over the older model). Fuel consumption has been reduced to 1.7 litres per 100 kilometres. Besides, it has a 0-100kmph time of just six seconds. 

BMW X5 xDrive45e:

The combined power output of the xDrive45e has been increased to 290 kW/394 hp thus allowing for time marked at 5.6 seconds time for the 0-100kmph sprint. The electric range has increased three fold to around 80kms. 

BMW 745e:

Shortly after its launch, the updated 7 Series flagship has got a plug-in hybrid variant which can now travel a distance of 50-80 kilometres on pure electric power. 

Meanwhile, BMW 530e Sedan and BMW 225xe Active Tourer get the newest version of lithium-ion batteries and improved electric-power range. Although its dimensions remain unchanged, the new lithium-ion battery now has a gross energy content that has increased from 9.2 to 12.0 kWh. This has resulted in an increase in the electrically powered range by more than 30 per cent to 64 kilometres. Apart from the powertrain updates, the electrified BMW range also get additional features and new information screens.
