2021 BMW X5 Will Introduce Electric Version

We are still testing the new BMW X5 and its M package, and new
model is on the way. Well, the mid-size SUV is coming unchanged
for the next season, but the 2021 BMW X5 is about to start
something new. This time, it is an electric concept called
xDrive45e. We already saw the X5 combining the petrol engine
with an electric powertrain. However, the xDive40e wasn’t so
successful. This time, the Bavarian carmaker will combine a
larger engine to provide more power. Will it be enough to cause
the attention of buyers?

The rest of the 2021 BMW X5 lineup will be mostly unchanged.
With a big redesign of the current model, the Bavarian company
created some space for the development of other vehicles, such
as X7M and
X8. Also,
the styling of the mid-size model can now remain appealing for
a few years. The X5 is one of the SUVs which was there right
from the beginning of the expansion. It is the best BMW’s model
and there is no surprise why every now and then we see some
novelties that refresh the vehicle. So far, in 20 years, the
SUV had three previous generations. But the latest one is going
to cement its place as one of the best SUVs ever.

2021 BMW X5 Specs

The new 2021 BMW X5 will have two petrol engines available for
buyers in the US. No diesel is coming across the ocean. A
3.0-liter V6 is the base solution. Turbocharged, it creates 335
hp and 330 lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed automatic
transmission sends power to all four corners of the SUV. That
is the famous BMW’s xDrive. The other possibility is a V8 with
higher outputs. A 4.4-liter unit is producing 456 hp and 480
pound-feet of torque. The vehicle also sends power to an AWD.
This setup has a towing capacity of 7,200 pounds.

Hybrid

The 2021 BMW X5 will introduce the major change. It pairs the
base 3.0-l engine with electric motors to create a plug-in
hybrid. A V6 replaces a 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit which was
previously part of the xDrive40e configuration. The X5 hybrid
will come as an xDrive45e model. According to available info, a
petrol engine can produce 285 hp and the electric motor adds
115 horsepower, but the total output from this PHEV SUV is 395
hp. It also creates a massive amount of torque – 445 lb-ft. The
X5 plug-in hybrid will need 5.5 seconds for 0-60 mph
acceleration, and it achieves max speed of 145 mph.

The advantage of this system is that can go without petrol
engine support. An electric battery is going to offer 50 miles
of range. The company is working on fast recharging. Again, if
you use only an electric drivetrain, you can’t go faster than
90 mph. It is nearly 15 mph boost compared to the xDrive40e
model.

Diesel Engines For the Rest of the World

Under the hood of European 2021 BMW X5 will be a 3.0-liter
turbo-six drivetrain. It produces 265 hp and 450 lb-ft of
torque. However, the diesel X5 is not as fast as its petrol
sibling, since it needs 6.5 sec to reach 60 mph. A quad-turbo
version of the m50d model takes 5 seconds to do the same. The M
model for diesel units is creating 395 hp and 560 lb-ft of
torque.

2021 BMW X5M

We expect the M package to be available with 2020 MY. However,
the company is not providing any release date, so the vehicle
could be carried over for the 2021 season. However, we already
know what to expect from the 2021 BMW X5M. The ultra-luxurious
high-output SUV is capable to produce over 600 hp thanks to the
new setup of a 4.4-liter engine. It also creates nearly 600
pound-feet of torque and accelerates 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds.
Just for a comparison, its predecessor produced 550 hp and 560
lb-ft of torque. A lot more upgrades and updates will be
available for the X5 M.

Sporty seats, the latest technology and equipment, and special
leather will be part of the M package in the US. The vehicle
will use unique details to enhance the overall styling. It
includes a special grille, larger air intakes, and sportier
side skirts. Of course, the M model uses unique wheels with
badging on wheel caps.

2021 BMW X5 Competition and Price

The new 2021 BMW X5 will continue its battle with Mercedes GLE at first
place. The German giant has already prepared a hybrid engine
for its largest GLS model. The
mid-size SUV is the next to get it. However, let’s not forget
Audi Q7 and
Volvo
XC90. In the US, the X5 will also face Lexus RX, as one of the most
versatile SUVs. The price of the 2021 MY will remain the same.
The X5M will cost at least $103,000, according to some experts.
The xDrive45e could start somewhere around $75,000.
