Auto123 reviews the 2020 BMW X3 xDrive30e.
The BMW X3 xDrive30e may be one of the most important vehicles to emerge from BMW’s stable over the last year or so. For starters, it starts life as an X3 which is one of the brand’s top sellers along with the X5, so you know that this was a package BMW was going to make sure they got right.
The big feather in this particular X3’s cap, though, is that little “e” in its model name, which denotes it as the plug-in hybrid version of the popular small BMW sports activity vehicle (SAV). It’s good for 288 hp and a claimed 30-or-so km of full-EV range, and as more and more manufacturers rush to meet the increased demands for EV and ZEV vehicles across world markets, it’s models like this that are going to be the lynchpins of the transition.
