The compact crossover X3 is one of the most popular BMW models in Europe. The car is available with a wide choice of engines, but the Bavarians are not satisfied with the achievements and continue to develop new engines.
Of course, the sports version of the X3 M is expected to be the most interesting, but it will also have a hybrid modification that can be charged from the power grid. The two new options will be available next year.
According to Carscoops, the future BMW X3 PHEV will get the same unit as the new Series 3 (G20). Includes a 2.0 liter four-cylinder petrol engine, which works in conjunction with an electric motor. Together they develop 248 hp and for a short period of time the power reaches 288 hp.
At the same time, BMW is working on the hybrid version of the larger crossover – the X5. It will be equipped with a more powerful unit, which according to information will develop around 390 hp. It will be based on a 3.0-liter 6-cylinder turbocharged engine.
