With a total system output of 230 kW/313 hp generated by a four-cylinder petrol engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and a synchronous electric motor, the BMW X5 xDrive40e achieves a combined fuel consumption of 3.4 – 3.3 liters per 100 kilometers (83.1 – 85.6 mpg imp) and a combined electricity consumption of 15.4 – 15.3 kWh over the same distance. CO2 emissions come in at 78 – 77 grams per kilometer.
Early preliminary estimates put US EPA mileage estimates at 55 MPGe. The BMW X5 xDrive40e needs 6.8 seconds for the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h. This is accomplished thanks to a max torque of 184lb-ft available from 0 rpm from the electric motor. Top speed is electronically limited to 130mph (210mph) or 75mph (130km/h) when running on electric power.
Shortly after the market launch of the BMW X5 xDrive40e, the BMW 330e (F30 LCI) , the BMW 740E / 740Le (G11, G12) and a corresponding version of the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer will also join the plug-in hybrids family.
