With fresh design impulses and an extensive technology update, the BMW X5 for the Chinese automobile market is starting to continue its success story. The variants of the Sport Activity Vehicle (SAV) in the luxury class, which have been extremely popular since their market launch in China, are becoming even more attractive, above all with their increased presence on the exterior, the further developed BMW iDrive with "QuickSelect" and with efficient, consistently electrified engines. The new BMW X5 thus offers China ideal conditions for further expanding its position as market leader in the segment. The new BMW X5 xDrive30Li and the new BMW X5 xDrive40Li will be presented to the public for the first time at the Chengdu Motor Show on August 25, 2023.
The vehicle concept of the BMW X5 xDrive30Li and BMW X5 xDrive40Li models is specifically geared towards the needs of Chinese target groups. A wheelbase that is 130 millimeters longer than the variant of the BMW X5 available in other global markets gives the rear passengers particularly generous legroom. The rear doors, which are also longer, make it easier for them to get in and out. There are also specific seats and exclusive features that increase travel comfort. The new editions of the BMW X5 for China are produced at the Dadong plant of the joint venture BMW Brilliance Automotive Ltd. produced in Shenyang. Their market launch will begin in September 2023.
