Underneath the body of all BMW X3 xDrive30e models is a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine paired with an electric motor connected to an eight-speed automatic gearbox and BMW’s four-wheel-drive xDrive system. Altogether, the drivetrain produces a combined 252hp and 420Nm of torque.
These numbers mean that sprinting from 0 - 100 km/h takes 5.9 seconds, which, for reference, is 0.4 seconds faster than an impressive competitor. The Top speed is at 210 km/h. BMW includes a system which gives a boost in performance when required, called XtraBoost, which brings another 41hp at the touch of a button.
