The BMW X5 iPerformance.

The BMW X5 xDrive40e iPerformance offers the best of both worlds, combined in an exceptionally comfortable four wheel drive plug-in. Innovation meets the luxury and versatility of a BMW X5, providing impressive driving dynamics and outstanding efficiency.

Vehicle concept.

A BMW X5 with the consumption of a small car. Optimum traction and agility thanks to the BMW xDrive four wheel drive system and dynamic driving characteristics in all driving modes. With its versatility and dynamics, the BMW X5 xDrive40e iPerformance meets all expectations. The eDrive lettering at the rear is the only visual difference to the BMW X5. What really sets it apart is its range in purely electric mode. It can drive approximately 19 miles locally emission free and with zero fuel consumption. The high voltage battery is stored safely beneath the luggage compartment floor, which, with a generous volume of 1,720 litres, is ideal for bulky luggage items. In short this is a pioneering and unrivalled vehicle concept.

Individual driving behaviour.

As a BMW iPerformance model, the BMW X5 xDrive40e has various different drive modes that allow the driver to significantly influence the actual energy consumption. This depends on both the driving mode selected and the driver’s personal behaviour. When the battery is fully charged, you can drive for approximately 19 miles without using a single drop of fuel. In the AUTO eDrive mode, the optimal combination of electric motor and combustion engine enables the focus to be placed on efficiency.
