Cheeky Camel: 20% improved fuel rating...not that better
Kevin Smith: Uh...
This is terrible. The bar has to be pretty low to think this is good. The vehicle only weighs 4900 lbs, and has a hybrid system. Yet it only get 14/24 mpg. The Ram 1500 weighs about 400 lbs less, but has worse aero-dynamic elements. It gets 18/25 using the V6 and 28 highway using the turbo diesel.
What does the hybrid engine even do when it can only get 14 miles of electric range?
yiyangcheng: That's a mouthful to say "X5 XDrive 40e" lol
Liam Carlen: Feel like the new XC90 T8 would be a way better alternative for someone in the market, it is around the same price range if not cheaper, more powerful, has more battery range, comes with a third row seat, and I believe has better gas mileage too. Just a quick note for anyone who may be watching this who is in the market, the XC90 T8 seems like the better of the two here, but maybe a head to head comparison between the two could really prove which is better in different situations.
HodsBroo: I like the idea but I can't imagine the repair bills on this car.
IAmReal_LSV: +/- 14 miles for 7 hours of charge is a pass. Car manufacturing does this to get discount from the government.
