The X5 eDrive concept will make its debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show in September, and BMW has released some preliminary photos and specifications.
The X5 plug-in hybrid has a fuel consumption rating of 62 mpg US, features an electric motor rated at 95 hp, and has a lithium ion battery pack that can provide up to 19 miles of electric-only range. The fun part of the X5 eDrive plug-in hybrid vehicle is that it is off-road capable with all-wheel-drive. This vehicle could compete with the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV if it ever makes it to production.
The gasoline engine used in the eDrive setup is a 4 cylinder turbocharged engine with around 180hp. 0-62 mph can be achieved in around 7 seconds.
We’ll get the rest of the details next month when the BMW x5 eDrive concept is fully unveiled in Frankfurt.
