The new BMW X5 plug-in hybrid makes its debut today at the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show. The BMW X5 eDrive Concept uses a combination of a combustion engine couple with an electric motor that can provide driving autonomy.

The BMW eDrive system consists of a four-cylinder combustion engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and an electric motor. The 70 kW/95 hp motor sources its energy from a high-voltage lithium-ion battery. It can be charged from any domestic power socket and has sufficient capacity to enable the car to travel up to 30 kilometers (19 miles) solely on electric power, generating zero local emissions in the process.

The high-voltage battery developed for the BMW Concept X5 eDrive is mounted in a particularly crash-safe position underneath the load area, whose capacity remains virtually unchanged as a result. There is a choice of three driving modes, depending on requirements and situation – the intelligent hybrid drive option for an optimum balance between sportiness and efficiency; pure electric and therefore emission-free driving; or Save Battery mode to maintain the current battery charge.

The kidney grille slats, air intake bars and the inlay in the rear bumper – all in the BMW i Blue color developed for the BMW i brand – present an appealing contrast to the Silverflake metallic exterior paintwork. The BMW Concept X5 eDrive also comes with specially designed roof rails, a connector for the charging cable that lights up during charging, and 21-inch light-alloy wheels in an exclusive, aerodynamically optimized design.

BMW has yet to announce if the X5 eDrive concept will translate into a production car in the near future.

    I love that “Plug In” concept, as the 1st step on the right direction from my beloved BMW Brand after their meaningless iGadgets and endless 1st gen hybrids nobody want. But it still has a far too small battery (I won’t jump in Plug In EVs before I see 40KWH allowing at least 200 Miles of all Electric range), and not a radical enough drive train design in my view, so cost will be outrageous again and it won’t sell as much as it could.
    What BMW customers, like me, need today is a European Tesla design, with an “electric only drive train” with stronger electrical motor(s), a much larger battery of at least 40KWH, and the German quality ICE Range Extender that is missing in the real Teslas, preventing them to become the real car replacement EVs we need, hence me to purchase one (Tesla 65 and 85 KWH Batteries are not required if a good Range Extender, working as pure generator is added, assuming the 40KWH battery has an instant Power throughput high enough to cover all situations including mountains climbing and on high speeds on motorways).
