BMW shows plug-in hybrid electric based on X5 Sports Activity Vehicle
21-Apr-2014 16:12 GMT
Vehicle has 18 mi/30 km all-electric range from lithium-ion battery pack. Uses 2.0-l twin-scroll turbo engine with combination peak output of 270 hp/201 kW and 300 lb ft/407 N-m. Offers "predictive navigation" for high fuel efficiency, and can save battery capacity for areas that may require electric vehicle-only operation. European drive cycle ratings are 3.8 l/100 km (62 mpg) and just 89 grams CO₂/100 km. Read full story
