Late in 2020 we had the chance to feature the 2020 BMW X3 xDrive30e, a compact luxury SUV with an all-electric range of about 22km. We knew there was more BMW could do with the their electrics, which is why we're excited to be driving this 2021 BMW X5 PHEV, with a 24 kWh Li-ion battery, the X5 Plug-in boasts a battery capacity and all-electric range double that of the X3. Since we've had the chance to feature the BMW X5 and X6 quite a bit over the past couple years, we recommend watching the following videos to get the full picture of what this generation mid-size BMW SAV has to offer.
Our review will be focusing on the electric eDrive system offered on this X5, and how it performs in the winter, including some information on our real-world fuel economy testing along with how the Pirelli Scorpion Winter tires worked out for us. We discuss some of the feature changes over the other X5s we've driven along with the X3 PHEV.
