PHEVs are the future for the luxury segment as more manufacturers look towards electric. Our snapshot is on this 2021 BMW X3 xDrive30e, the new eDrive vehicle in BMW's electric lineup. No changes for the Canadian market for the 2021 X3, though the price for this vehicle has increased by about $2,000. The previous X3 we drove was the 2020 BMW X3 M Competition.
We go over the technical specifications of this plug-in hybrid electric SUV including the engine and motor info, battery size, and the expected range BMW advertises for this model along with our real-world testing in sub 0º temperatures. We go over some of the package options on this X3 and how it would compare to the xDrive30i entry-level, and why you might want to consider this one.
We take the 2021 BMW X3 xDrive30e on a comprehensive road test to talk about how this SUV performs, drives, handles, and performs, and what you can expect from the hybrid system in the winter. We discuss our real-world fuel economy testing, how far we were able to drive in Max eDrive mode, and our it compares to other PHEVs we've driven in this luxury segment.
