Aside from the BMW i8 Celebration Edition, which is limited to just 20 units, BMW of Japan has now released this BMW 330e Celebration Edition version as part of its ongoing 100th Anniversary,

As BMWBLOG explains:

BMW Japan decided to launch a couple of special edition models this year, to celebrate the company’s centenary. The eighth car in this exclusive line-up is a BMW 330e plug-in hybrid. Dubbed “BMW 330e Celebration Edition.”

The 330e Celebration Edition is a limited-production model too, with only 100 ever being built. It differentiates itself from the standard 330e in a few unique ways, according to BMWBLOG:

“First of all, you’ll notice the Tanzanite Blue exterior paint that comes courtesy of the BMW Individual range and matches the car’s Luxury Line exterior perfectly and the 19″ Individual wheels. Inside the cabin you’ll also find more options from the Individual catalogue, such as the Merino white leather and Piano Black trims that adorn the dash, door panels and center console. Other options included in the package are the Harman/Kardon sound system, BMW Head-Up display and dedicated interior badging…”

Interesting that you don’t see a charge port door on the drivers side front fender in the picture.

Also interesting and quoted “Sales begin this July, but only in Japan” yet Japan use RHD cars yet the photo shows a LHD car.

Any chance they’ll upgrade this battery for 30 miles of Real EPA range?

That and upgrade to the 328i engine. Same exact 2.0 liter size, but almost 60hp more. A 328i is rated at 5.2 seconds 0-60mph. Although you can take the 320i, and a simple aftermarket tune will make it gain 60hp anyways. I believe the similar X5 40e drivetrain puts out over 300hp. BMW could be a step above the competition when it comes to high performance hybrid sedans.
