2021 BMW 330e: A plug-in powerhouse

Even though this BMW features a cutting-edge electric-and-combustion drivetrain, you'd never know it since it looks and drives pretty much like any other 3 Series.

This car looks like your run-of-the-mill BMW 3 Series, but it packs a plug-in hybrid powertrain.

The 330e's cabin is spacious and comfortable, but not particularly luxurious.

This plug-in hybrid's powertrain delivers 288 horsepower, 310 pound-feet of torque and strong performance.

Much of this BMW's cabin is ho-hum, but its cognac-colored Vernasca leather is lovely, supple and rich.

There's a surprising amount of back seat space in this car.

The 330e's twin-kidney grille is still a proportional size, unlike the frontal intakes on other BMWs these days.

This example rolls on stylish 19-inch wheels, which are standard. The swanky blue brake calipers, however, cost extra: They're bundled in the $1,400 Dynamic Handling Package.

iDrive 7 and its center console-mounted controls are speedy and responsive but not the most intuitive infotainment system out there.

The 330e offers a variety of driving modes so you can tailor its performance to your needs or desires.
