How long does it take to charge the BMW X5 xDrive50e?

Charging the BMW X5 xDrive50e takes approximately 3 hours and 28 minutes to charge from zero to full using a typical 7kW home charging point.

Most plug-in hybrids cannot rapid charge however, please check the table below to find out if the BMW X5 xDrive50e is an exception to this rule.

There are also steps you can take to prolong the life of an EV battery. Check out our guide to electric vehicle battery maintenance for tips on keeping your EV in tip-top health.

What happens when an EV battery eventually dies though? Many of the parts can be re-used or recycled - learn more about what happens to an electric car battery at the end of its life.
