In the wake of the resounding success of the BMW X5 in the Malaysian market in 2023, BMW Malaysia has given a sneak peek into the facelifted Plug-in Hybrid variant of their most successful premium Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV): the locally assembled BMW X5 xDrive50e. With the M Sport package as standard, the new BMW X5 xDrive50e promises significant updates in both performance and efficiency, embodying a blend of power and electric range that redefines modern athletic elegance.

The driving force behind the New BMW X5 xDrive50e M Sport is its enhanced PHEV powertrain. It delivers a remarkable combined output of 489hp – a substantial 96hp more than its predecessor – and an upgraded 700Nm of torque. This powerhouse, consisting of a 3.0-litre straight-six petrol engine and a robust electric motor, propels the SAV from 0 to 100km/h in just 4.8 seconds. The electric capabilities receive a boost, offering an electric range of up to 110km (WLTP) and an improved 7.4 kW of charging, ensuring a swift 0-100% charge in only 4.5 hours.

Inside the cabin, the X5 boasts a superbly crafted interior featuring a 14.9-inch BMW Curved Display with a fully digital display cluster. Enhanced by the advanced BMW Operating System 8.5, the display includes the BMW Live Cockpit Professional and BMW instrument panel, supporting various interaction methods such as iDrive Controller, voice, touch, or optional Gesture Control. Standard features include an ambient Light Bar with a crystalline surface structure and a Harman Kardon Surround sound system. The restructured centre console now includes touch-sensitive function keys, with gear changes executed using a rocker switch.

Standard features for the SAV encompass BMW Comfort Access, Driving Assistant Professional, Parking Assistant Professional, and exterior colour options of Black Sapphire, Manhattan, Mineral White, and Skyscraper Grey. The interior upholstery, a member of the BMW Individual Extended Leather family, comes in two distinct colour options – Black and Tartufo, embodying the promise of athletic sophistication and modern luxury.

The estimated pricing for the new BMW X5 xDrive50e M Sport is set at RM 530,000, positioning it as a compelling choice for enthusiasts seeking a harmonious blend of performance, efficiency, and luxurious comfort in the premium SAV segment.
