2023 BMW X5 PLUG-IN HYBRID Driving Functions Guidelines

BMW eDRIVE

Principle
BMW eDRIVE is the designation for electric drive technology. In addition to the combustion engine, the vehicle features a high-voltage hybrid system that consists of an electric motor and a high-voltage battery, among other things.
The hybrid system can move the vehicle entirely on battery power. It can also support the combustion engine in certain situations.

General information
The vehicle does not consume any fuel while running on battery power. This enables environmentally friendly driving without emissions in certain conditions, for example, in city traffic. During driving with the combustion engine, the hybrid system helps to lower fuel consumption. The electric motor is switched on to support this, if required by the situation.

In addition to this, the electric motor acts as an alternator: during braking and in rolling to a stop/overrun mode, the electric motor converts the vehicle’s kinetic energy into electrical energy. The electrical energy is stored in the high-voltage battery and is used to drive the electric motor.
The high-voltage battery can be charged via the charging socket at charging stations or domestic socket outlets.

  1. Front airbag, driver
  2. Front airbag, front passenger
  3. Head
  4. Side airbag In the rear
  5. Side airbag
  6. Knee airbag

Front airbags
Front airbags help protect the driver and the front passenger by responding to frontal im-pacts in which seat belts alone would not pro-vide adequate protection.

Side airbag
In the event of a side collision, the side airbag protects the side of the body in the chest and lap area.
Depending on the national-market version:

In the event of a side collision, the side airbag in the rear protects the chest and lap area on the side of the bodies of the occupants in the outer rear seats.

Head airbag
In the event of a side collision, the head airbag protects the head.

Ejection Mitigation
The head airbag system is designed as an ejection mitigation countermeasure to reduce the likelihood of ejections of vehicle occupants through side windows during rollovers or side collision events.

Knee airbag
The knee airbag protects the legs in the event of a frontal impact.

Protective effect

General information
Airbags are not deployed in every impact situation, e.g., in less severe accidents.

Information on optimum protective effect of the airbags 

Warning
If the seat position is incorrect or the deployment area of the airbags is impaired, the airbag system cannot provide protection as intended and may cause additional injuries due to deployment. There is a risk of injury or danger to life. Follow the information on achieving the optimum protective effect of the airbag system.

  • Keep a distance from the airbags.
  • Always grasp the steering wheel on the steering wheel rim. Hold your hands at the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions to keep the risk of injury to your hands or arms as low as possible when the airbag is deployed.
  • Adjust seat and steering wheel so that hands can be crossed over the steering wheel. Select the settings so that the shoulder rests against the backrest when crossing the hands and the upper body
    is as far back as possible while still maintaining a comfortable grip on the steering wheel.
  • Make sure that the front passenger is sit-ting correctly, i.e., keeps his or her feet and legs in the footwell and does not support them on the dashboard.
  • Make sure that occupants keep their heads away from the side airbag.
  • There should be no additional persons, animals or objects between an airbag and a person.
  • Dashboard and windshield on the passenger’s side must stay clear – do not at-tach adhesive film or coverings and do not attach brackets or cables, for instance for navigation devices or mobile phones.
  • Do not bond the airbag cover panels with adhesive, do not cover them or modify them in any way.
  • Do not use the cover of the front airbag on the passenger’s side as a storage area.
  • Do not attach slip covers, seat cushions or other objects to the front seats that are not specifically suited for seats with integrated side airbags.
  • Do not hang pieces of clothing, such as jackets, over the backrests.
  • Never modify either the individual components or the wiring in the airbag system. This also applies to steering wheel covers, the dashboard, and the seats.
  • Do not disassemble the airbag system.

Even when you follow all instructions very closely, injury from contact with the airbags cannot be fully ruled out in certain situations. The ignition and inflation noise may lead
to short-term and, in most cases, temporary hearing impairment in sensitive occupants.
Vehicle modifications for a person with disabilities may affect the air bag system; contact BMW Customer Relations for further information.
Warnings and information on the airbags are also found on the sun visors.

Operational readiness of the airbag system

Safety information

This chapter describes all standard, country-specific and optional features offered with the series. It also describes features and functions that are not necessarily available in your vehicle, e.g., due to the selected options or country versions. This also applies to safety-related functions and systems. When using these functions and systems, the applicable laws and regulations must be observed.

Loading

Safety information

Warning
High gross vehicle weight can overheat the tires, damage them internally and cause
a sudden tire pressure loss. Driving characteristics may be negatively impacted, reducing directional stability, lengthening the braking distances and changing the steering response. There is a risk of accident. Pay attention to the permitted load-carrying capacity of the tires and never exceed the per-mitted gross vehicle weight.

Warning
Devices connected to the vehicle via a cable, such as mobile phones or loose objects, can be thrown through the vehicle interior while driving, such as in the event of an accident, braking or evasive maneuver. There is a risk of injury. Secure loose objects or devices that are connected to the vehicle via a cable.

Warning
Improperly stowed objects can slip and be thrown into the car’s interior, for instance in the event of an accident, braking or an evasive maneuver. Vehicle occupants can be hit and injured. There is a risk of injury. Stow and secure objects and cargo properly.

NOTICE
Fluids in the cargo area can cause damage. There is a risk of damage to property, among other potential damage. Make sure that no fluids leak in the cargo area.

Steps for determining correct load limit

  1. Locate the statement “The combined weight of occupants and cargo should never exceed XXX kg or XXX lbs” on your vehicle’s placard.
  2. Determine the combined weight of the driver and passengers that will be riding in your vehicle.
  3. Subtract the combined weight of the driver and passengers from XXX kg or XXX lbs
  4. The resulting figure equals the available amount of cargo and luggage load ca-pacity. For example, if the “XXX” amount equals 1,400 lbs and there will be five 150 lbs passengers in your vehicle, the amount of available cargo and luggage load capacity is 650 lbs (1,400 – 750 (5 x
    150) = 650 lbs)
  5. Determine the combined weight of luggage and cargo being loaded on the vehicle. That weight may not safely exceed the available cargo and luggage load capacity calculated in Step 4.
  6. If your vehicle will be towing a trailer, load from your trailer will be transferred to your vehicle. Consult this manual to determine how this reduces the available cargo and luggage load capacity of your vehicle.

PayloadBMW-X5-PLUG-IN-HYBRID-2023-Cargo-area-fig-1

The maximum payload is the sum of the weight of the occupants and the cargo.
The greater the weight of the occupants, the less cargo that can be transported.

Stowing and securing cargo

  • Cover sharp edges and corners on the cargo.
    Heavy cargo: stow as far forward as possible, directly behind and at the bottom of the rear seat backrests.
  • Very heavy cargo: stow as far forward as possible, directly behind and at the bottom of the rear seat backrests. When the rear seat is not occupied, secure each of the outer seat belts in the opposite buckle. Fold down the rear seat backrests completely to stow large cargo.
  • Do not stack cargo above the upper edge of the backrests.
