BMW Santa Barbara announces the addition of two new electric hybrid BMW models to be released later in 2016.
December 2015, Santa Barbara, CA – BMW has announced that it will release two new vehicles featuring hybrid electric power in 2016. The BMW 330e sedan and the BMW X5 xDrive 40e will both incorporate a 2.0 liter Twin Turbo inline 4-cylinder gasoline engine and an electric motor powered by a high-voltage lithium ion battery. The hybrid models are expected to provide exceptional driving performance paired with a more efficient electric power.
“BMW drivers know they can expect the best, and that includes optimal power and efficiency,” shares Bill Fogg, General Sales Manager of BMW Santa Barbara. “We are pleased to be able to offer an expanded selection of hybrid models in 2016 and encourage customers to learn more about the innovative technology used in each one.”
The BMW 330e sedan offers seating for five adults and spacious cargo room. The sleek design and quick acceleration make it a favorite choice for those seeking a sporty model combined with daily functionality. The model will be able to operate in a purely electric mode for a distance of up to 22 miles giving drivers an emission free option for daily errands and quick trips.
The BMW X5 xDrive40e is the first BMW to pair xDrive with eDrive. It is quick, agile, and extremely functional and efficient. It also allows drivers to enjoy world-class efficiency without compromising on design, performance, or comfort.
Both models will be available in 2016 at BMW Santa Barbara. Interested drivers can learn more by speaking with a BMW sales representative or following ongoing updates from BMW online.
