The BMW X3 receives a plug-in hybrid powertrain for the first time ever this year.

The car features a 2.0-liter turbo-four engine, an electric motor integrated into the eight-speed automatic transmission and a 12.0-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack under the rear seat.

All-electric range is claimed at 28-31 miles, but be aware that US-market numbers, under the EPA's test cycle, will probably be very different.

Total system output is 252 horsepower, with the 0-62-miles-per-hour run pegged at 6.5 seconds and top speed set at a healthy 130 mph.

At full throttle the car's electric motor can add a 41-horsepower boost to the powertrain, adding a lot of immediacy and punch to the X3's performance.
