BMW i5 Latest Spy Shots

We are seeing a lot of the next-gen BMW 5 Series recently. The “Electric Test Vehicle” decals and lack of visible exhaust hint this one might be the EV that would go by the i5 moniker.

Regardless of the powertrain, all of the 5 Series development vehicles we are seeing share the same styling. Most notably, there’s a downward sloping nose and fairly small kidney grilles by the standards of other current BMWs. The headlights are fairly narrow in the corners of the vehicle’s face.

The bet for the electrification of the new BMW 5 Series

The entry into the scene of the new generation will allow the BMW 5 Series to elevate its commitment to electrification . The mechanical offering will consist of a selection of gasoline and diesel engines, with four and six cylinders, which will be characterized by their excellent balance between performance and efficiency. The light (MHEV) 48 volt hybrid technology will be present.

Those drivers who are prepared to enter the world of electric mobility without giving up the freedom offered by a combustion engine, will have three plug-in hybrid versions (PHEV) at their fingertips . They are the 520e, 530e and 545e versions. In addition, they will have a higher capacity battery to boast a superior 100% electric autonomy.

When will it hit the market? Current reports indicate that the debut is scheduled for the end of spring 2023. However, its commercialization will not start until the end of that year. Hence, it will land in dealerships as a 2024 model.

The new generation is filigree and strong

For the first time, our Erlkönigjäger succeeded in shooting down the BMW 5 Series at an early stage of development. The still heavily camouflaged model does not yet have the standard headlights and taillights, but shows its new shape despite the camouflage.

BMW 5 Series with low kidney grille

Compared to the G30, which has been on the market since 2017, the new 5 Series has a lower front. The controversial grill of the BMW M3 or the 4-series cannot be seen, instead a wide, but narrow kidney grille emerges. Overall, the model seems to be longer, the overhangs appear larger, especially at the front. The passenger cell is set back a little, the door handles with recessed grips are borrowed from the i4, the roof slopes gently towards the rear and opens into a trunk lid with a rear bumper. It seems that the conclusion is also more steep here than on the predecessor.

With the G60, BMW will be launching the new generation of the BMW 5 Series from autumn 2023. The model also gets an E version with up to 750 hp.

The rear windows show the Hofmeister kink characteristic of BMW. When it comes to the design of the lights, the BMW 5 Series is likely to use the iX. Overall, the model will increase in size, the length will reach or exceed just under five meters.

5 Series as BMW i5

The models shot down by us are labeled “Electric Vehicle” and “Hybrid Test Vehicle”. No wonder, from 2023, BMW will place its series on the modified CLAR platform (Cluster Architecture II), which not only allows combustion engines with mild hybrids, but also plug-in hybrids and pure electric drives. Accordingly, the 5 Series will also be available later than the i5, analogous to the BMW 7 / i7 or 4 Series / i4.

The latter comes with 80 kWh batteries and offers up to 544 hp in the i4 M50. The BMW i7 also has different battery sizes of up to 120 kWh. The Top-i7 comes with a rear axle that houses two electric motors plus inverter plus power electronics and differential in one housing, another, weaker motor works on the front axle. The new eight-speed transmission from ZF provides power transmission for the plug-in and mild hybrids.
