BMW has released the first teaser of the 2024 BMW i5, which is the fully electric version of the next-generation 5 Series.
BMW says that the new 5 Series is based on a flexible powertrain architecture that allows for it to be offered with electric, plug-in hybrid, gas and diesel engines with 48-volt mild hybrid powertrains. The i5 will also be available as a BMW M Performance Model.
“The all-electric BMW i4 M50 shows how BMW blends dynamic performance and electric mobility to perfection,” said Oliver Zipse, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG. “It was the best-selling BMW M model worldwide in 2022. A fully electric Performance model from BMW M GmbH will also be included in the new BMW 5 Series Sedan line-up.”
In Europe the 5 Series Touring (wagon) will also be available in an fully-electric version in 2024.
The 2024 BMW 5 Series will officially debut in October.
