I've just seen this on Instagram and I wonder whether this even makes sense. Can the car eventually handle those 400HP without extra modifications to the chassis or other components?

LOL this is inaccurate..I would not call it a fake, but they probably sum up the power of electric accumulator + engine map...that is the result

I mail them for my car they have 340 hp
I have the B48 B20A engine but if you have the B48 B20B you make over 400 hp to the 330e its same like 330i + electric

Why does BMW have two different A and B models for the 330e? And what kind of lottery is it not knowing which one you'll end up with? :O

I can imagine USA market or somewhere non-EU has the B-version while us in Europe have A-version, I can't imagine that I would for example possibly have the B-version while you would have the A-version when both of us are in Sweden/EU...?

How did you/them find out which one you got btw? I've tried looking it up through VIN number et.c but couldn't see anything stating if it was A or B version..

I believe its dictated by what trim you go for.
Anything less than a 330i youll get the weaker A version. If its the 300i youll get the B version.

That's from my limited research.

I don't think this combination exists?

As all 330e's use the same B48 B20A (182bhp) petrol engine.

Only the 330i has the B48 B20B (254bhp) petrol engine
