The BMW X5 xDrive40e, The Electric Version Of The German SUV, Debuts This Year
|   Wednesday, January 15, 2014
BMW exhibited last year at the Frankfurt Motor Show the X5 eDrive concept car, an anticipation of a future electric SUV series, scheduled to start in the near future. It seems that the future is related to the year 2014, several sources already announcing the debut of a series model inspired by the German concept.

The site BimmerToday claims that the X5 will be made into a zero-emission version this year. The name which was chosen by the Germans officials is extremely simple: xDrive40e.
Under the hood we can expect a mix made of an electric motor used as an assistant to a turbocharged conventional unit displacing 2.0 liters with 4 cylinders.

Together, the two engines will offer 272 horsepower, enough to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 7 seconds. The electric motor will provide 70 kW, the equivalent of 94 horsepower. This power will be enough to propel the SUV up to 120 km/h in electric mode only.

The lithium-ion battery pack that keeps alive the electrical unit promises a zero-emission driving distance of 30 kilometers. In a combined cycle, the xDrive40e BMW promises a consumption of 3.8 liters/100 km.

BMW did not bring major structural changes, so we should not expect a different design. However, we will find a power plug outlet, designed to recharge the battery pack located in the rear.
Currently, it is unclear when BMW plans to launch new xDrive40e, but we can expect to make its debut in one of the two major auto shows in Europe: Geneva or Paris.
