The concept is what BMW calls as the meeting of its xDrive and eDrive, describing it “the logical next step towards bringing about a radical reduction in fuel consumption and emissions”.

The concept is equipped with two engines – a BMW 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine making 245 hp at 5,000 rpm and peak torque of 350 Nm at 1,250 rpm and an electric motor that makes 95 hp. A lithium-ion battery pack, located under the luggage compartment, provides power for the electric motor which gives the concept SUV a range of 30 km at maximum speed of 120 kph on all-electric mode.

Three driving modes can be selected : Intelligent hybrid drive (AUTO eDrive), pure electric (MAX eDrive) and SAVE Battery to maintain the current charge level.

The concept gets a few styling changes, like the kidney grille bars, air intake bars and an insert on the rear bumper, all finished with the i Blue colour made for the BMW i8 and i3.

The hybrid SUV also comes with body-coloured wheel arches, roof rails, a connector for the charging cable which – as on the BMW i models – lights up during charging, as well as 21-inch light-alloy wheels.
