X6 E71 / E72 (2008 - 2014)
The BMW X6 luxury crossover went on sale in April 2008 as a 2009 model year. BMW referes to the X6 as a Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) as it combines the attributes of an SUV (high ground clearance, xDrive and all-weather ability) with the stance, styling and roof line shape of a coupe. The E71 X6 was built off the E70 X5 (2007 - 2013) platform at BMW's Spartanburg, SC plant. Total worldwide sales were just over 235,000, sold mostly to the BRIC countries. US total sales was 34,082 vehicles.

I had this problem a month ago when it was -30. I called BMW roadside assistant and they sent someone over. I was not home but the guy gave my car a jump and when i got back i took a short hour drive around the city just to get the battery charging. I believe it's your battery. If you do alot of short driving, maybe there isn't enough charge in your battery and given the cold weather, it just weakens your battery even more. I got some advice to buy battery chargers for the car at the local department store for $50-100. Keep the battery charging over night and you shouldn't have this kind of problem again. Hope this helps, Good Luck!
