  • Two all-new BMW X5 models: X5 xDrive45e and X5 xDrive30d Edition
  • xDrive45e marks first hybrid variant available for the new generation BMW X5 range  
  • Potent M50i variant added to the BMW X7 line-up
  • Q4 arrivals for all models

BMW Group New Zealand will expand its renowned X model line-up with three new models set to arrive in the country by the fourth quarter of 2019. 

The celebrated BMW X5 range will be bolstered by the all-new xDrive45e model, the first hybrid variant available for the new generation BMW X5 line-up, and the sharply positioned X5 xDrive30d Edition. 

The X5 xDrive 45e now boasts a six-cylinder petrol engine, which replaces the four-cylinder power unit of the previous generation X5 xDrive40e. 

It combines this with a powerful electric motor that provides an impressive combined total output of 290kW, helping the xDrive45e accelerate from 0-100km/h in 5.6 seconds. 

The hybrid battery also benefits from vast improvements, aiding in considerable gains to performance, fuel efficiency and driving range.  

The new BMW X5 xDrive30d Edition will provide an enticing entry point to the X5 range while still offering a six-cylinder engine and the highest level of specification relative to its price position in the luxury SAV segment. 

The BMW X range family’s luxury flagship, the X7, will now feature a mighty Twin Turbo V8 via the new M50i model. This propels the X7 M50i from 0-100km/h in just 4.7 seconds.   

The supreme performance of this powertrain, combined with the X7’s commanding presence, make this new model a highly compelling proposition. 

The X7 M50i mirrors the specification of the X7 M50d and is priced at $199,900.

Condition Based Servicing

All maintenance requirements for the BMW X5 and BMW X7 are controlled by the Condition Based Servicing (CBS) system.

With CBS, sensors and advanced algorithms monitor and calculate the conditions in which a vehicle is used, including mileage, time elapsed since its last service, fuel consumption and how a vehicle is driven. Based on the information captured, maintenance requirements are determined, identifying whether an annual vehicle inspection or oil service is due. 

Selected BMW service and maintenance costs can be covered by a single, one-off advance payment with BMW Service Inclusive (BSI), which is available in two packages: Basic or Plus.

 

As with all New Zealand-new BMW vehicles, a five-year warranty, three-year service inclusive programme and five year roadside assist coverage is fully included.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
