in August as a concept that was a thinly veiled production model. Recently, a production model has been spotted in Europe, and it looks identical to the concept, other than minor changes to the trim.

The third generation X5 has just gone on sale in Europe and has yet to launch elsewhere, but it seems likely that BMW will add a plug-in hybrid X5 to the lineup that would take on the new hybrids from Land RoverLand RoverLand RoverUnited Kingdom, 1978 > present15 models

The specifications for the production model have not been revealed, but the concept combined a turbocharged four-cylinder engine with a 94hp electric motor powered by a lithium-ion battery that is mounted underneath the cargo area. The car can reach a max EV speed of 75mph (120km/h) over a range of 19 miles (30km). When combined, it can hit 100km/h in less than seven seconds. It uses 3.8l/100km and less than 90g/km of CO2. The power for the electric motors is distributed to the front and rear wheels, whether the internal combustion engine is activated or not.

The hybrid system runs in three modes – Intelligent for normal driving, Pure Electric for all-electric driving and Save Battery to not use the electric system.

The concept and prototype add a panel in front of the driver’s door for the plug-in port.
