BMW to Showcase X5 Concept with eDrive at NY Auto Show
BMW is using the New York International Auto Show 2014 to roll out the BMW Concept X5 eDrive.
The BMW Concept X5 eDrive fuses xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system and a plug-in hybrid drive system. A conventional combustion engine works together with the BMW eDrive technology to produce a significant reduction in fuel consumption. As a result, the car is able to drive on electric power alone at speeds of up to 120 km/h (75 mph) and for a distance of up to 30 kilometres (approx. 20 miles), while recording average fuel consumption figures of less than 3.8 l/100 kilometres (more than 74.3 mpg imp) in the EU test cycle.
The concept study underwent a series of detailed refinements in preparation for its appearance at the New York International Auto Show and is equipped with a drive system comprising a 180 kW/245 hp four-cylinder petrol engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and a 70 kW/95 hp electric motor likewise developed by the BMW Group.
