BMW X5 Plug-in Hybrid goes official

BMW has recently announced its plans to introduce Plug-in Hybrid version of the new X5 generation, which is believed to go on sale later on this year.

The BMW X5 Plug-in Hybrid, in a prototype version as seen in the images posted below, is the company’s newest model and it was actually previewed by the Concept X5 eDrive. The model in question will basically get an electric motor, along with the regular internal combustion engine, which will optimize performance, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

“Thanks to perfect synchronization of the BMW eDrive technology with the intelligent BMW xDrive all-wheel-drive system, the drive torque from the electric motor, the four-cylinder petrol engine or both power sources operating in tandem can be split in a variable ratio between the front and rear wheels”, as the company said in its official press release.

The new BMW X5 Plug-in Hybrid will be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 7 seconds and it will be doing this by burning an average of approximately 3.8 liters of fuel every 100 km (74.3 mpg UK / 61.9 mpg US) and while emitting 90 g/km of CO2. IT will also be able to travel in electric mode for up to 30 km (18.6 miles). Additional details on the new BMW X5 Plug-in Hybrid are limited for the moment and will probably be announced once the model will be officially unveiled.
