Luxury meets economy in the BMW Concept X5 eDrive, with its Paris Motor Show debut.
The BMW Concept X5 eDrive presents an innovative recipe for further reducing the fuel consumption and emissions of a Sports Activity Vehicle.
The study car combines familiar driving pleasure – courtesy of the xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system – and a luxurious ambience with a plug-in hybrid drive concept.
The latter offers drivers the sporting flair for which BMW is renowned, all-electric driving at up to 120 km/h (75 mph) and average fuel consumption in the EU test cycle of under 3.8 litres per 100 kilometres (upwards of 74 mpg imp). As such, the Concept X5 eDrive represents an impressive example of the effectiveness of the BMW EfficientDynamics development strategy.
The drive system under the skin of the BMW Concept X5 eDrive comprises a four-cylinder petrol engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and an electric motor.
The concept car’s lithium-ion battery can be charged quickly and safely from any conventional domestic power socket or a BMW i Wallbox.[wzslider height=”400″ lightbox=”true”]
