Daily Driver / Range

What kind of real world range are you getting on a full tank? Are you guys able to hit 400 miles/tank if you drive "gently"?

How is the car as a daily driver?

That's a very real question - the '16 X5 I had would barely on a cross country drive. The new one has a much greater range.

Thanks.

I can get pretty close to 400mi.

I drive very gently...

FYI

PS - Onboard computer shows over 20mpg. Have about 2800 miles on it.

I could never drive this car gently, but I get about 16 mpg driving "not gently".

Hopefully that helps.

I think you may have bought the wrong car if MPG is in question. I use my M5 comp as a daily drive.
