Now with a purely electric range of 80 km, the BMW X5 plug-in hybrid is setting off for new horizons. Success in this mission is due to the BMW plug-in hybrid concept in which the intelligent energy management plays a key role. It coordinates the interplay of all drive components and optimises the efficiency of the hybrid drive through an anticipatory operating strategy. During this process, it uses navigation data, for example, to calculate sections of the route that are best suited for the use of the electric motor or for charging the high-voltage battery. The BMW X5 xDrive45e also has various drive modes that are able to exert a major influence on the real consumption values. The high-voltage battery is quite simple to charge via a domestic socket, with the BMW Wallbox or on the move at public charging stations.
