BMW X5 xDrive40e iPerformance

Big family car, small carbon footprint

It’s the best of every world. Day-to-day family transport with both petrol and electric power; economical long-distance driving that can cover around 800 kilometres without refuelling; and a consummate off-roader that can tackle any driving surface.

With the BMW X5 xDrive 40e, you get big vehicle capacity and small car economy. In purely electric mode it can cover up to 30 kilometres without a sniff of petrol. And the battery system doesn’t impinge on cargo space – there’s still 1720 litres of volume for your weekend baggage. This is a pioneering vehicle for those who want to be more environmentally responsible.

As with all BMWs, the X5 xDrive 40e comes with sat-nav, a reversing camera and a reassuring five-year warranty.  You have the option to add a third row of seats to accommodate seven people.

An elegant, practical vehicle for today’s sustainability-conscious family. The daily school run becomes petrol-free and blissfully quiet (except for the kids in the back seat).
BMW X5 xDrive 40e IPerformance Effective For Every Driving Mode

Effective for every driving mode

For city driving, the X5 xDrive 40e exploits electric driving to the full. If most of your driving is local, your trips to the service station will be few and far between. For longer commutes and weekend trips, a journey of up to 60 kilometres will require some petrol driving; fuel consumption will be around 3.3 l/100 km. For long distance and off-roading, you’ll dip into the petrol but still achieve frugal fuel consumption of around 11 l/100 km.

BMW X5 xDrive 40e IPerformance Beautiful Control

Beautiful control

The 40e is capable of charging at 3.5kW per hour, giving a minimum charge time of about three hours. You’ll find that electric driving offers a new type of pleasure – gaming the battery. Unlike other hybrids, where the use of the battery versus is usually completely out of your control, the x5 40e gives you enough power and speed to moderate your driving so that you stay electric.
