While BMW didn’t set any expectations for a production model, these spy pics paint the picture that a real vehicle is on the way. Our spy photographer mentioned that there are a few of these prototypes on the road, making it sound like BMW is pretty serious about this project.
The 95-hp eDrive electric motors are rated to run at a maximum speed of 75 mph, and are mated to a turbocharged four-cylinder motor. The two motors will help the X5 accelerate to 62 mph in under seven seconds.
