The new BMW X5 xDrive40e not only offers innovation, luxury and versatility, but it delivers it all with outstanding efficiency. Visually, only the eDrive lettering at the rear of the car marks it different to the BMW X5. However, in purely electric mode, this pioneering, unrivalled vehicle can drive approximately 19 miles completely emission free and with zero fuel consumption.
Of course it is also an X5, so it offers an unforgettable drive in all modes, combined with optimum traction and agility thanks to the BMW xDrive four wheel drive system.
Design & Technology
The BMW X5 xDrive40e has three different drive modes that allow the driver to significantly influence the car’s actual energy consumption (the driver’s individual style also has a large impact on consumption). The BMW X5 xDrive40e adapts perfectly to any kind of journey, offering incredibly low consumption and emissions over long and short distances.
This is made possible by Predictive energy management. Once the destination has been entered into the navigation system, predictive energy management analyses the planned route using constant data such as speed limits and real time information on the current traffic status. In this way, the system uses the purely electric driving mode efficiently and on routes on which it is most beneficial. Whether it’s the everyday commute, driving in the city or a long distance journey, the fuel consumption of the BMW X5 xDrive40e is markedly lower than that of other cars in its class. Short distances can be covered in fully electric mode, while driving in hybrid mode enables combined fuel consumption of 83 to 85.6 mpg and CO2 emissions of 77 to 78 g/km.
The body structure of the X5M is built around the passenger “cell" which – along with numerous airbags – offers maximum protection if a collision occurs
