330e - Does the combustion engine rotates when Electric?

Hi there,

I wonder how the 330e works:

- Let's say I am using Hybrid, and the car is running in Electric. Will the combustion engine still rotate, being pushed by the Electric?
- Now let's say I'm running Hybrid, car is in Electric, and I accelerate. Is a starter engine involved in starting the combustion engine, or is it started by the electric drivetrain?
- Does Electric mode full disengage/turn off the Combustion Engine so that it does not rotate, and that is why is allows higher speed?
- How does the car keeps the oil and temperature optimal when Hybrid electric?

Thanks

These are great questions. Unfortunately, there is a dearth of information out there on how these operate. I look forward to the answers as well.

No, when you run in electric, the combustion engine is disengaged.

The electric motor is in the gearbox.
