BMW X5 Concept eDrive Is The Right Drive

BMW has a great new concept that will show at the 2013 Frankfurt International Motor Show that comes in the way of an X5 eDrive.  The SAV (Sports Activity Vehicle (as BMW puts it)) has their TwinPower Turbo inline 4 cylinder engine that gets over 70mpg imp and a range on all electric of 19 miles.  

The blue color that makes the eDrive stand out was "developed," not picked out of a Crayola box. BMW i Blue color represents the i Brand from BMW putting a perfect understanding to clean technology that also helps accent the flawless design that helps the SAV with aerodynamics and ground breaking character.

I cannot get over the wheels! I love all 21 inches of them!!  The perfect tie for a perfect suit. 

In BMW words:
"Munich. The new BMW X5 raises efficiency to another new level in the world of the luxurious Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV). BMW is using the 2013 Frankfurt International Motor Show (IAA) to present the logical next step towards landmark efficiency in the SAV segment.
