Range and Performance
"Hey BMW, tell us something impressive about the X5 Plug-in Hybrid."
It is difficult to divulge just the one thing that is impressive about the plug-in hybrid version of the X5, as not only does it boast a pure electric range of up to 54 miles it can zoom from zero to 62mph in 5.6 seconds, which is truly remarkable for a vehicle of this size.
Equally as monumental is the superior xDrive, which enables exceptionally precise handling of the powerful, yet economic, SUV.
Last but not least, the X5 xDrive45e combines a 3.0-litre petrol engine with the BMW eDrive electric motor to deliver a scintillating 389bhp, whilst returning up to 235.4mpg.
Charging of the X5 Plug-in Hybrid can be completed at home, at work or on the move.
With convenience in mind, installing a BMW i Wallbox at your home makes the most sense. The Wallbox will charge the battery from empty to 80% capacity in around 5 hours, or to full in about 6.8 hours. Plug-in your vehicle overnight and it will be charged and ready to take you wherever you need to go the following day.
Without the Wallbox you can use a conventional plug socket to charge the X5 PHEV, however you should anticipate a slower charging time.
Thanks to thousands of public charging points, located around the UK, you can now charge up whilst out and about.
