BMW has officially announced the pricing of the new X5 xDrive40e on its local market, where the model will go on sale this fall.
The “greenest” version of the new X5 generation is called the xDrive40e and it is getting ready to be introduced on its local market, where the company has priced it from 68, 400 euros. This is basically more expensive than the xDrive40d, which starts from 66,300 euros. The model will be put together at the Spartanburg facility, along with the X3, X4, X5.
The new BMW X5 xDrive40e is packing in a 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine, which is capable of putting down a total of 245 HP (180 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque. The unit is backed up by an electric motor, which is generating an extra 113 HP (83 kW) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque. The total output produced by the assembly stands at 313 HP (230 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque, allowing the “green” SUV to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.8 seconds and to go up to a top speed of 210 km/h (130 mph). In full electric mode, the X5 xDrive40e can go up to 120 km/h (75 mph) and the average fuel consumption stands at 3.3L / 100 km (83.1 mpg UK / 69.1 mpg US), while the CO2 emissions stop at 78 g/km. A complete recharge of the battery from a household socket takes 3h and 50m and using the optional BMW i Wallbox will cut the time to 2h and 45m.
