Solid SUV, Great Hybrid Performance

This plugin hybrid is the future of European car makers' product lines. The paired gas and electric engines with overnight charging make for an uncompromising vehicle. The standard X5 gets low 20s MPG with a normal mix of city and highway driving. With this X5 40e plugin hybird, we charge once per day and have been averaging 45 MPG per tank. The car is confident and handles great, possibly due to the lower center of gravity with the heavy battery. Charging overnight is easy with a standard 120V household plug. For $500-$1000 you can install a 3.8 KWh "level 2" charger at home to cut down the charge time from ~8hours down to about 2.5 hours. And there are lots of great parking perks at public lots when you're in an electric car, frequently with the option to charge for free. (Public charging is sometimes pay-for-charge and costs less than $2.00). Overall the vehicle is extremely comfortable, high performing, easy to drive, and well appointed with premium leather, metal trim, and real woods. It's an expensive vehicle, but not a bad value.

Charging System Failed after 5 years

I think BMW has terrible customer service. I bought a brand new x5 e40 hybrid. The charging system totally failed after 5 years as well as the air suspension. Very poor quality in my opinion. If a tesla charging system failed after 5 years there would be an uproar. They simply told me they can't do anything and charged me over $8000 to fix charging system and the air suspension which didn't even last the minimum 50000 miles. I would not have expected such a short dry answer from BMW. Even cheaper low end vehicles perform better than this. Terrible customer service.

X5 Hybrid A Unique High-end SUV

The hybrid X5 offers great fuel economy for an SUV of its size. I routinely get an average of 35 mpg in all around driving. Short trips in town can be driven in full electric mode using no gasoline whatsoever.
