The BMW Concept X5 eDrive.

The BMW Concept X5 eDrive is the first Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) from BMW to combine the intelligent four-wheel drive system BMW xDrive with an innovative BMW plug-in hybrid system. This combination ensures that the BMW Concept X5 eDrive stands not only for sportiness and luxury, but also efficiency and low emissions.
On the road, it boasts the outstanding driving dynamics you’d expect, yet produces 0% local emissions in the purely electric mode. This not only makes the BMW Concept X5 eDrive the most fuel-efficient vehicle in its class, but also represents another step towards ground-breaking efficiency in the SAV segment.


Ground-breaking efficiency meets unadulterated sportiness.
For the first time ever, BMW eDrive and xDrive are now united in an abundantly luxurious SAV. BMW eDrive technology guarantees excellent dynamics and outstanding efficiency. In order to maximize the efficiency benefits, the vehicle has been developed as a plug-in hybrid. Based on the driving situation, the intelligent energy management offers the most effective interplay between the combustion engine and the electric motor. The powerful BMW TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder petrol engine* also guarantees high-quality driving dynamics combined with lower fuel consumption and emissions.


The design of the vehicle is systematically geared to the BMW EfficientDynamics philosophy. In particular, the aerodynamic front apron and the underbody impress with innovative features that reduce air resistance and fuel consumption, boosting overall efficiency and dynamics.

The plug-in hybrid vehicle can be recharged easily and quickly at home using any household power outlet, the BMW i Wallbox or at a public charging station when you’re out and about.
