One is called the Borgward BX5 and combines passion with pragmatism to inject a fresh breeze into the market segment for compact SUVs-a segment that is steadily becoming the most popular and successful sector in the whole of the automobile market.The other is a show car that we call the Borgward BX6 TS.With its strikingly dynamic looks and distinctive, coupe-like lines, this SUV sport saloon will spearhead our assault on the established circle of SUV coupes.
The Borgward BX5 is a prototype approaching the series-production stage. Measuring 4.48 metres in length and with a wheelbase of 2.68 metres, it features equipment based largely on mass-production technology and a plug-in hybrid (PIH) drive system combined with all-wheel drive. It embodies classic SUV qualities such as versatility, spaciousness, comfort and off-road capability, combining these with the outstandingly low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of a pioneering plug-in hybrid (PIH) drive concept. This is in line with the company\’s strategy of pushing ahead with the electrification of the powertrain. All production series for European launch will include a model with either a PIH or a purely electric drive system that delivers a range of 250 kilometres with minimized recharging times.
