BMW announced the prices for the 2016 X5 xDrive40e in Germany a couple of days ago and now, the carmaker is already preparing the plug-in hybrid SUV for the United States, where it will arrive at the end of the year as a 2016 model.
The carmaker is asking a standard price of $63,095, which is higher than the six-cylinder X5, which comes with $54,895 in the sDrive and $57,195 in the standard xDrive.
As the European sibling, the 2016 BMW X5 xDrive40e will arrive in the US with an evolutionary design, while the cabin will offer a generous space for both passengers and their luggage. We are talking here about an overall cargo capacity standing at 1,720 liters.
Under the hood, the 2016 X5 BMW xDrive40e will pack the 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder, backed by an electric motor, both configurations developing an overall 308 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque. The hybrid powertrain is also hooked to a 9.0-kWh lithium-ion battery pack, with a presuming 13 mile range. Apart the fuel-efficiency capacity, the xDrive40e is also extremely environmentally friendly, the hybrid SUV coming with CO2 emissions standing at 78-77 g/km.
