2022 BMW 3 Series Redesign New Hybrid Powertrain
2022 BMW 3 Series Redesign New Hybrid Powertrain – BMW already laid the groundwork for the 2022 3 Series. However, the next major re-design for a benchmark sedan premium is due in 2018, so why is BMW already seeing so far here? Due to some radical engineering changes that will make the 3 series today seem obsolete. According to a new report from Autocar, BMW has learned a lot thanks to the i3 and i8 in terms of construction and advanced powertrain capabilities.
New BMW architecture moved from a welded steel body and a machine that drives the rear wheels through conventional transmission, and to a platform made of alloy steel, aluminum and composite and powertrains that use electric motors as the main source of drivers.

The lesson will be applied to more mainstream models, starting with the 2022 3 series. Simply put, the body is welded steel and the machine that drives the rear wheels with a manual gearbox will be a thing of the past. Expect the body constructed from a mixture of steel, aluminum, and various other lightweight composites.
Powertrains will incorporate electric motors as the main driving source, which will work together with the large battery pack and the new internal combustion engine family that will function primarily as a generator. In order to meet the upcoming strict EU emissions standards, BMW plans to make all models of the 3 Series and up plug-in hybrids.
This ingredient is a variety of bound, stunned, chaotic and tacked together. It uses composites in strategic structural areas, such as roofing pillars and sills, allowing thin-skinned steel pressings to be used, saving weight and enhancing rigidity.
The internal combustion engine is said to spend most of the time acting as a Generator and running at peak efficiency.

BMW will also see significantly improved car aerodynamics, as well as viewing technologies connected with 3D navigation that allow cars to anticipate hills and use downhill sliding to reduce energy use and recharge batteries. An innovative suspension is also planned, with a lower rising height on the highway and an active aerodynamic air intake.
All of these changes are strategic due to EU fuel consumption regulations. In 2021, automakers had to hit the CO2 output on a 95g/km fleet, with a range of between 85g/km and 110g/km for various brands. Then in 2025, the new CO2 target will be set, reportedly become more stringent.
The problem now, in particular, is weight loss and high costs, both of which are expected to decline in the coming year. As the powertrain technology improved, BMW will simultaneously develop a lightweight word-heavy composite material along with dramatic aerodynamic enhancement.
The petrol engine will again be the front-Mount but again, it will serve purely to produce electricity. The point here is that the 2022 3 Series will be very different from the 3 series that you see on today’s sale both inside and outside.
Most likely, the “35up” or CLAR architecture is one referenced by BMW. The new Platform is lightweight and modular, which makes it possible to make all cars from the 3 series to the top of the plug-in hybrid. The new hybrid powertrain uses two electric motors, one in the rear axle and one mounted directly behind the engine.
The large battery pack sits in the central tunnel with a front-mounted combustion engine acting as a generator in most driving situations.
2022 BMW 3 Series Engine
The Front Electric Motor is the key to the new powertrain because in its normal use, drive the front wheels through still a new kind of secret transmission. At speeds above 50mph or more, the engine ‘ assists ‘ the electric motors by attaching itself to new transmissions and helps to drive the front wheels at highway speeds.
BMW has yet to reveal the full details, but the engineers hint that the combustion engine will probably drive the front wheels only about 10 percent of the time in the typical journey. The engineers said this allowed them to run the engine in ‘ Lambda 1 ‘ to 90 percent of the time, leading to higher fuel efficiency.
With machines working less mechanical time, the construction can be simplified and cheaper to build than today’s motors.
To maintain the Ultimate driving engine slogan, BMW will offer a strict package under the car. Heavy batteries are placed low and in the middle of the car and the new generator/motor will often be lighter and mounted further back up in the front. So we hope to see the same extraordinary 50-50 balance.
Autocar also says that the new generation BMW engine might drop the turbocharger and its accompanying intercooled system or Valvetronic system, as the torque will be largely provided by two electric motors. This relationship becomes a less complex emission control system and a lighter engine, so it’s, therefore, a lighter car.
The new transmission may not have more than three ratios and could be a mechanical planetary system. Since the electric range is the key to BMW electric vehicles, a larger battery pack is required. It will fit neatly in the space freed by the appointment of Propshaft and the use of smaller fuel tanks.
The rear differential may also be dropped, while the braking system can be smaller and lighter, thanks to the electric motor braking capability. At least 100kg is expected to be shed from the upcoming 3rd series Hybrid to the next one.
This new hybrid powertrain offers a part-time and permanent all-wheel drive and can be scaled across all models, from 3 series to X5 and even to the Rolls Royce family.
The future of cars is changing and the next ten years will be significant for the whole industry. Technology grows by leaps, limits to changing the future for cars and new customers.
