BMW X5 xDrive40e Gets Official EPA Ratings
We’ve seen the window sticker already for the BMW X5 xDrive40e (worst name ever for a plug-in vehicle) that estimates the BMW’s all-electric range at 13 miles and MPGe at 59, but now we’ve got all the data on how those numbers were calculated.
Here’s a look at battery charge time, total range, PHEV composite MPG (city, highway,combined) and electric range (city, highway, combined). City and highway ranges are both very similar -coming in at 13.2 miles and 13.95 miles respectively.
And below is a look at the MPG breakdown (city, highway, combined)
Editor’s Note: There is currently a bit of confusion about range data – at least fractionally. The online EPA website shows the X5 xDrive40 having 14 miles of range, which appears to be a rounding up of the number that we also find in the chart. However, the EPA conclusion/status is listed as 13 miles, and the actual Monroney sticker (which is required by law), lists the BMW at 13 miles.
At this point we assume the online public data will ultimately be adjusted to 13 miles to reflect the internal conclusion and the sticker on the car.
Deliveries of the BMW X5 PHEV (much simpler name) are underway right now in the U.S. If you’d like to configure your own X5 plug-in, you can do so by first clicking here.
