      Nice car and review. I actually drive a PHEV (Volvo XC60 T8) and I´m looking for a replacement in about one year.
      This BMW could have make it cause of it´s extended electric range, BUT:
      - Only Leather seats available (will never ever get a car with leather seats again, mainly for comfort reasons)
      - 3.7 KW charging is a joke. When I drive to a town like Munich (200 km away from my place) I would like to charge
      the car to drive electrically after my arrival. But it would take about 7 to 8 h at a public (high speed) charging station. Sorry, just stupid.
      BEV car owners would for sure like to roast me for blocking the (high speed) charging station.
      - The gas tank is now placed behind the rear axle, a construction of the 60s. What if I get a rear impact from another car ?
      I personally consider this to be a safety risk.

      @Autogefühl Fabric surface would be my first choice for comfort (and ethics). Artificial leather is, despite of the ethical aspect, very similiar to leather.
      I don´t understand why all car manufacturers force customers to buy leather (or artificial leather) with luxury cars of their top range or top motors. Lower range cars like the BMW X3 offer fabric seats.
      But even Volvo (in Germany) does not offer any more fabric seats with the XC60 T8 PHEV, only leather. A shame.

      Cant you get Sensatec leatherette seats in your market? Or do you want fabric surface only? I agree that fabric seats are better for climate comfort, as for ethics/animals however, BMW at least offers Sensatec for the X5.

      Very nice review as uzual,BUT: this is what you , manufacturers and politicians says is going to save the Planet from polution? You must be joking; reviving 120 years old technology, either you call it electric or hybrid is is the same old transfer of energy from mechanical power to electric power and again to mechanical power ( i say WHATTTT?), technology complicated even more with plenty of mambo jambo electronics.....is this a joke?......and on top of everything the car wheights by at least 250 kg more than non hybrid.....no no please give us the real story beyond this hybrids because i don't buy this one: why manufacturers do not invest in hidrogen, in water electrolyses technology or in other real nonpolutant technologys..i'm site these are there somewhere ..
      .....hybrid? Never for me

      I have the standard G05 and I cant be me more happy. Switched from a Mercedes Benz C63 ( I needed a SUV) and I was skeptical because of its power; coming from a real AMG is serious shit. But once I drove it, fuck!!, it was beyond my spectations. Its got all and more power than I would problably need. Its an amazing vehicle.

      The BMW reluctance to offer Android auto is totally ridiculous. Not to mention the fact that they make you pay a yearly fee to have Apple CarPlay on something like a 60k optioned out 330e or whatever. How cheap can you be.

      So Thomas, I searched your channel for comparison of BMW X5 vs. Volvo XC90 PHEV but couldn’t find one. Thoughts? Btw, 👍🏻 on your choice of music selection ... progressive trance ... 2019 and it still is relevant 😉

      How about a comparison between the phev suvs q7, x5, gle, range rover sport? I think it will be cool!
      Oh and i could not find a review from you for the new range rover! You mind doing a full size Range Rover? Thanks

      Great review as ever, thank you! I am excited about my new 45e arriving soon. Had been contemplating my decision to swap my 8 months old 40i with the hybrid...I drive approx 70kms daily, mostly through city and urban roads. I’m now feeling more confident that I can cover most of it in pure electric mode alone and can justify the cost of the swap.

      I have the predecessor X5 F15 and already ordered this new G05. Main reason for loving this power train is the majestical drive in the city with eDrive. Not only very silent but also very responsive. I actually come to see the combustion engine as the helper for the electric motor for higher speeds. All in all a very sophisticated car. - Thanks for your videos!

      Can also be driven in "Battery Save Mode" , ie. the state of charge can be saved and to change to combustion engine to also re-charge the battery as you drive .. A peace of mind that you have a choice with this PHEV .. Great Video Thomas ..
