The 2018 Bmw X5 Atlas Cedar offers outstanding style and technology both inside and out. See interior & exterior photos. 2018 Bmw X5 Atlas Cedar New features complemented by a lower starting price and streamlined packages. The mid-size 2018 Bmw X5 Atlas Cedar offers a complete lineup with a wide variety of finishes and features, two conventional engines.

You’ve got your choice—hot rod, hybrid, or family cruiser. Along with multiple powertrains, the versatile X5 handles like BMW’s excellent sports sedans. Its styling, flexibility, and optional third row are also reasons we consider it tops among crossovers. A 300-hp turbocharged inline-six is standard; a 445-hp twin-turbo V-8 and a 255-hp turbo-diesel inline-six are optional. Unfortunately, the plug-in hybrid’s electric-only range is 14 miles, and in our test we recorded a disappointing 21 MPGe.

The first thing you need to know about the new plug-in-hybrid version of the BMW X5 is that the EPA rates its electric-only range at just 14 miles—and, of course, your results may vary. Which is another way of us saying that you’ll need good luck to go even that far between charges.

So you shouldn’t expect the X5 xDrive40e to be a Chevy Volt writ large. Commuting on electricity is possible only for those who have a very short drive. A 14-mile range would be just enough to allow you to traverse Manhattan from north to south (or vice versa), assuming mild traffic. Plus, the top speed in EV mode is 75 mph, so if your commute includes any expressway driving, you’re better off selecting the Save Battery mode and reserving the EV driving for city streets. Also, in EV mode the X5 xDrive40e needs 22.6 seconds to reach 60 mph. That is just 0.8 second quicker than a 2011 Smart Fortwo ED. And it should be noted that using the inline-four to charge the battery (as also occurs in Save Battery mode) is hardly an efficient practice.
