That's because the difference in 0-60 acceleration between the two is minimal. The 335i being a lighter car, would feel sportier. That said, I've owned two 335i sedans for the past 6 years and while the AH3 is heavier, in "Sport/+" modes it offers more torque at lower RPMs due to the electric motor. When throttle is applied on the AH3, more power is delivered to wheels quicker which is a nice feeling. Even though most of that additional power is compensating for the additional weight, not all of it is, and it does seem (and feel) that the acceleration advantage goes to the AH3 in all cases.
