BMW is getting ready to unveil the 2024 5 Series, which will see the introduction of the fully electric i5. BMW says that it will reveal the new 5 Series in a few weeks, but it has released some new teaser photos of the electric version.
The next-generation 5 Series will be offered in internal combustion, plug-in hybrid and fully-electric versions. The range topping i5 M60 xDrive gets an adaptive suspension standard, while it’s optional on the i5 eDrive40.
According to BMW, “The new generation of the business sedan blends ride comfort approaching BMW 7 Series levels with the sporting agility familiar from the BMW 3 Series.”
The new 5 Series will be offered with a long list of driver assistance features that will use cameras and radar sensors to monitor the road ahead. The optional Driving Assistance Professional Package includes Highway Assistant, which allows hands-free driving at speeds up to 85 mph. It also adds Active Lane Change with eye activation.
Production of the 2024 BMW 5 Series will begin this summer and it will launch in October.
