A SYSTEMATIC WORK OF PROGRESS.The BMW X5 xDrive40e Plug-in Hybrid.


    A BMW X5 with the consumption of a small car. Optimum traction and agility thanks to the BMW xDrive all-wheel drive system and dynamic driving characteristics in all driving modes. With its versatility and dynamics, the BMW X5 xDrive40e iPerformance meets all expectations. Externally, the iPerformance model differs from conventionally powered models with the eDrive badge on the C-pillars on both sides, for example, as well as the i badge on the front side panels. The blue kidney grille slats and blue wheel hubs are also unmistakeable signs of the vehicle's innovative drive technology. What really sets it apart is the range in the purely electric mode. It can drive approximately 30 kilometres 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, a pioneering and unrivalled vehicle concept.


    As a plug-in hybrid, the BMW X5 xDrive40e iPerformance 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 up to 31 kilometres 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 top-quality efficiency.

    A high-output BMW TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder petrol engine and a high-efficiency eDrive electric motor are the driving forces of the BMW X5 xDrive40e iPerformance. The intelligent BMW xDrive all-wheel drive system guarantees optimum traction. The combination of these EfficientDynamics technologies produced an innovative vehicle offering not only low fuel consumption, but also awesome driving dynamics and stability in all driving conditions.


    Intelligent energy management is one of the main pillars of the BMW iPerformance concept. This system coordinates the interaction of all drive components in order to combine the best possible
    efficiency with great driving dynamics.


    Intelligent energy management optimises the hybrid drive's power-efficiency factor by predictively choosing the appropriate drive. For example, available navigation data is used to identify in advance the sections of the route and driving situations that are best suited for the electric motor or for charging the high-voltage battery.


    In situations in which the combustion engine would have a low power-efficiency factor, the system shifts up to a higher load range with a better power-efficiency factor. That means that the combustion engine produces additional power. This power is used to create electricity for the battery via the electric motor/generator, which can later be used for electric driving or efficiently supporting the combustion engine. It also controls the electric motor/generator, so that kinetic energy is transformed into electrical energy during coasting and when braking. In combination with ECO PRO mode, intelligent
    energy management adapts all vehicle systems, including all auxiliary components and comfort functions, to be fuel-consumption conscious and highly efficient.


    The eDrive button allows the driver to choose between three eDrive modes: the standard AUTO eDRIVE mode, the purely electric MAX eDRIVE mode and the SAVE BATTERY mode, which maintains the charging status at a constant level.
