BMW 3-Series Hybrid Overview

The BMW 3-Series Hybrid is classed as a compact executive car which is produced by the German automobile manufacturing company BMW. The 3-Series Hybrid was introduced in 2012 when the sixth generation of the 3-Series was released. The Hybrid has an electric motor and a petrol engine combination for improved fuel economy. Considering that these vehicles are mainly built for their economy, these Hybrid were not all that great in this area. They are based on the saloon version of the sixth generation 3-Series and is a very stylish looking car. They have great handling, plenty of space in the cabin and boot areas. They are also very comfortable. These cars are well equipped but are very costly to buy, and would recommend one of the diesel engines at a better price. Does any of the above sound like your experience of the 3-series Hybrid?
