Introducing the BMW X5 xDrive45e iPerformance With 390 HP / 442 LB-FT

Introducing the BMW X5 xDrive45e iPerformance

COMMENTS


September 6, 2018. Munich. Efficiency meets supremacy: the drive portfolio of the new BMW X5 is to be extended in the course of 2019 with the addition of a plug-in hybrid system. The new BMW X5 xDrive45e iPerformance combines a model-specific in-line 6-cylinder petrol engine featuring BMW TwinPower Turbo Technology with the very latest BMW eDrive technology. Consistent progress in the area of plug-hybrid drive has produced a system output now increased to 290 kW/394 hp, a tangible enhancement in terms of electrically powered range and a significant reduction in fuel consumption and CO2 levels as compared to the predecessor model.

More impressively than ever, the second generation of the plug-in hybrid model combines the purely electrically powered driving pleasure of a BMW iPerformance automobile with the versatility that is typical of a Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV). In doing so, the new BMW X5 xDrive45e iPerformance offers optimised qualities in terms of both driving dynamics and efficiency. It does the sprint from zero to 100 km/h in 5.6 seconds – more than one second less than the predecessor model. The top speed when driving on electric power alone is increased from 120 to 140 km/h. Its electrically powered range is now approximately 80 kilometres*, almost three times that of its predecessor. The combined fuel consumption of the new BMW X5 xDrive45e iPerformance drops to 2.1 litres per 100 kilometres*, while the relevant CO2 emissions figure is now 49 grams per kilometre*.

These improved levels are the result of a completely newly developed drive technology. It comprises a 3.0-litre and 210 kW/286 hp in-line 6-cylinder engine from the current BMW EfficientDynamics drive family and the latest generation of BMW eDrive technology. An electrical system output of 82 kW/112 hp, a lithium-ion battery with extended storage capacity and further developed power electronics for intelligent energy management give the plug-in hybrid system of the BMW X5 xDrive45e iPerformance unique performance characteristics as well as an impressive level of efficiency. Together, the two drive units generate a system output of 290 kW/394 hp along with a maximum system torque of 600 Nm. The combustion engine and electric motor deliver their power to an 8-speed Steptronic transmission of the latest generation and the intelligent all-wheel drive system BMW xDrive. In this way, the drive torque is transferred to all four wheels when driving on electric power alone as well as when using the combustion engine or indeed both drive units: this ensures sporty driving pleasure on the road and supreme off-road performance over loose terrain at all times. The top speed of the BMW X5 xDrive45e iPerformance is 235 km/h.

Thanks to the high-voltage battery positioned in the underbody area of the vehicle, the centre of gravity is lower than in conventionally powered SAV model variants. The luggage compartment volume of the BMW X5 xDrive45e iPerformance is only some 150 litres less. When all seats are used, the storage volume is 500 litres; if the rear backrests are folded down, a volume of 1 716 litres is available. The volume of the fuel tank is 69 litres – suitable for long distances.

The new BMW X5 xDrive45e iPerformance is fitted as standard with a two-axle air suspension and electronically controlled dampers. The optional suspension systems available for the plug-in hybrid model include integral active steering. In addition to a comprehensive selection of features in the area of intelligent connectivity, new digital services are also offered that are geared specifically towards electromobility. In addition, all driver assistance systems developed for the Sports Activity Vehicle as well as high-quality options to enhance comfort and luxurious interior ambience are also available for the new BMW X5 xDrive45e iPerformance.

Any word on whether you can get off road package on the 45e or if the M Suspension can be added instead of the air suspension on the M Sport?

Interestingly, the picture shows the off road differential selections, but the 40i/50i build guide says you cannot get off road package with the M Sport which this picture apparently shows this combo is at play here (M Sport with off road)

A very nice update. Glad they finally paired the smoother (and better sounding) inline 6 to the plug-in models, plus a 50 mile range is a big improvement over the previous 20 miles. Definitely a vehicle to consider when it comes out, although i fear that this will be replacing the diesel's spot in the lineup.

Hope it comes with 3rd row seating... but I highly doubt it.

I believe it was confirmed that it wouldn't because the battery takes up to much space for a third row, but maybe an X7 45e will come in the future?...

Finally inline 6 instead of 4 pots! And the increase in range is a big plus. Looks like gas tank size is reduced (16gal) vs current 40e (21gal), may need more space for bigger battery.

Our current 40e range is more like 15 miles and acceleration in pure electric is too slow to keep up with traffic. The new 45e looks really good on specs and may just be in time when our lease ends next summer.

So fuel tank is about 4 gallons smaller than regular gas powered X5. 50 miles on electric power alone is impressive though. That's almost as good as a Chevy Volt.

Ah bummer, our 40e lease ends next summer and was hoping to switch to 45e. Another option would be Cayenne e-hybrid with a much steeper cost.

This doesn't make sense to me. So the 45e (5.6s 0-60mph) is slower than 40i (5.3s 0-60mph)? Shouldn't it be 35e or 38e?

Given we already have Tesla Model X for 2 years and Benz munch launched all electric EQC and Audi has all electric suv about to launch (not to mention Jag ipace) I have to say I am not impressed. Yeah it's an improvement over the F15 40e but it's just an evolutionary update when the revolution has already happened.

Am I the only one feeling this way?

Exciting update!
A couple of thoughts:
-I wonder if they also upped the charging current. My 530e maxes out at 16 Amps draw, but I imagine with this bigger battery you want to be able to charge faster. I installed a 40 amp juicebox Pro charger at the house so I am ready for the near to mid term future....
-looks like BMW finally consolidated the eDrive modes with the driving modes. In my 530e its a bit of a redundant mess. On the X5 it will be Sport, Hybrid, Electric - which makes sense.
-that 6 cylinder turbo will completely transform the driving characteristics of this car.
-my prediction for next model to get the same treatment: it will be called the 750e.
