xDrive40e The BMW X5 xDrive40e is the first plug-in hybrid production car from BMW. It combines the versatility of a large SAV model with the traction offered by the BMW xDrive all-wheel-drive system as well as BMW EfficientDynamics eDrive technology for greater efficiency.

xDrive40e The intelligently controlled interaction between the combustion engine and the electric drive, which together generate a system output of 230 kW/313 hp, endows the BMW X5 xDrive40e with exceptionally dynamic acceleration while also substantially cutting fuel consumption and emissions in everyday driving. It returns a combined fuel consumption of 3.4 – 3.3 litres for every 100 kilometres (83.1 – 85.6 mpg imp) and a combined electricity consumption of 15.4 – 15.3 kWh. CO2 emissions come in at 78 – 77 grams per kilometre (figures according to EU test cycle for plug-in hybrid vehicles, may vary depending on the tyre format specified).

xDrive40eThe use of BMW eDrive technology for exceptionally efficient performance as well as all-electric mobility with zero tailpipe emissions as and when required ushers in a whole new form of commanding driving experience in a sports activity vehicle. At the same time, the BMW X5 xDrive40e reaps the benefits of the technology and know-how transferred from the debut of the BMW i cars. The BMW i8 blazes a trail for sustainable driving pleasure with plug-in hybrid drive power, which can now also be enjoyed for the first time in a model from the BMW core brand.
