CCIA press release: The new BMW xDrive40e at Company Car in Action

The BMW X5 xDrive40e is the first plug-in hybrid production car from the BMW core brand and will be on display at CCIA 2015 ahead of its launch in November.

It combines the versatility and luxurious ambience of the X5, along with the superb traction provided by the BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system, with BMW’s EfficientDynamics eDrive technology for outstanding efficiency.

The intelligently controlled interaction between the combustion engine and the electric drive, which together generate a total system output of 313hp, endows the BMW X5 xDrive40e with strong acceleration while simultaneously realising a substantial reduction in fuel consumption and emissions.

It returns a combined fuel consumption of up to 85.6mpg, and a combined electricity consumption of 15.3kWh. CO2 emissions are just 77g/km meaning company car drivers will benefit from a BIK of only 13%, placing them in the attractive VED Band A.

The BMW X5 xDrive40e reaps the benefits of the technology and know-how transferred from BMW’s i brand, with exceptionally efficient performance as well as all-electric mobility with zero tailpipe emissions, as and when required.

Standard specification includes:

• 18" alloy wheels

• 40:20:40 split folding rear seats

• Automatic tailgate

• BMW Emergency Call

• BMW Professional Multimedia Navigation system

• Dakota leather upholstery

• Eight speed automatic transmission

• Front and rear Park Distance Control

• Heated front seats

• iDrive Touch Controller

• Xenon headlights

The BMW X5 xDrive 40e will be on display at CCIA 2015, come and see the BMW stand on June 16 and 17 for further details.
