The boot check

26. October 2019

The perfect test driver of the new X5 Plug-in Hybrid has brown hair, 80,000 followers and goes by the name of “Bailey”.

Normally test drivers sit in front, behind the driving wheel. Some journalists also sit in the rear to share their legroom experiences with their readers.

Our expert, Bailey, walked up the ramp and lay down in the trunk of the new BMW X5 plug-in hybrid – just as is to be expected from a Labrador lady.



As a Very Important Petfluencer, Bailey and her mistress were official participants in the BMW Group's international press tour presentation. In addition to a test drive along (Lake) Tegernsee, there also was a dog-friendly lunch, plenty of love from employees and journalists present and, correspondingly, a lot of content on Bailey's Instagram channel.
