test drove fully optioned model

I test drove a fully optioned model xDrive40e at the local dealership.... and made me now question what packages I've order for my X5. The Driver Assistance Plus ($1700 add-on) was really cool, it would tell me if there were pedestrians, warn me of close vehicles, and even display the local speed li...

Can you shift gears while in EV mode?

Does anyone know if in EV mode you can shift gears, or are you just stuck with what the computer thinks you should be using?

BMWBlog test drives pre-production x5 eDrive Hybrid

Back in April 2014, BMWBlog got a chance to test-drive the x5 plug-in hybrid SUV. It was a pre-production version, and there were parts of the exterior and interior of the vehicle that were camouflaged, but they were definitely impressed!
