BMW made improvements to the latest-generation plug-in hybrid (PHEV) version of its popular X5 SUV. Thus, the 2021 xDrive45e is the second generation of the BMW X5 plug-in hybrid SUV.
The price tag for the 2021 BMW X5 xDrive45e SUV is $65,400. There is a $995 destination fee, but considering you can also plan on factoring in a $7,500 federal tax credit that gives you a discounted price of $58,895.
2020 BMW X5 prices for the xDrive40i start at $58,900 for rear-wheel drive to $61,200 for all wheel drive. The sticker price on the xDrive50i is going to be $76,150 and for the $82,150 you are looking at $82,150.
2020 BMW X5 prices noted here don’t include any potential dealer incentives or rebates. As always, you’ll want to find out what you might be eligible for.
The xDrive45e powertrain has been overhauled and has new features including a twin-turbocharged 3-liter, 6-cylinder engine. For reference, the 2020 model had a 2-liter, 4-cylinder turbocharged unit.
In comparison to the previous model the new X5 has improved overall power with increased torque and the ability to go from 0 to 60 mph in a minimal 5.3 seconds. The top speed of the PHEV X5 is governed at 130 mph, and of course it drops down in the all-electric drive mode to 84 mph.
The three different drive modes which include Hybrid, Electric and Sport on the PHEV can be switched between electric-only and hybrid drive modes using the eDrive button or by just pushing down on the total pedal.
To sweeten the deal, the xDrive45e comes with a 12.3-inch touch screen display in the center of the dashboard, BMW’s iDrive 7 infotainment interface. And of course, the system supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
