BMW has confirmed it will soon reveal an improved version of last year’s Concept5 X5 eDrive SUV, the company’s next entrant in the emerging plug-in hybrid SUV market.

The new prototype, bound for next week’s New York Auto Show, will preview a production model that is expected to enter certain markets from 2015.

Revealed in Frankfurt last year, the original X5 eDrive concept is driven by BMW’s new plug-in hybrid system, pairing a 183kW turbo four-cylinder engine with a 70kW electric motor integrated into the transmission.

BMW says the system will send the big SUV to 100km/h in less than seven seconds, with a combined fuel consumption figure of just 3.8 l/100km. Carbon emissions come in below 90g/km.

Like most plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, the Concept5 also boasts a pure-electric driving mode, offering a range of around 30km. The concept can also hit 120km/h without switching away from electric-only power.

In Australia, buyers got a first taste of plug-in hybrid SUVs last month with the launch of Mitsubishi’s new Outlander PHEV.
