2024 BMW M5 first spy photos. It Will Be A Plug-In Hybrid.
BMW will have the new 5 Series on sale in 2023 when the fully electric i5 should also hit the market. As for the M5, don’t expect to see it until later that year or early 2024, which means it will probably end up as a 2024MY in the United States. All these models will share the iDrive 8 with the love/hate side-by-side screen setup.
The new M5’s plug-in hybrid reportedly includes a V8 engine. It’s allegedly a version of the existing twin-turbo 4.4-liter powerplant. While we don’t officially know the output for the sedan, a very similar setup is in the new BMW XM. That application has 644 hp (480 kilowatts) and 590 pound-feet (800 Newton-meters). The upcoming XM Red Label pushes the numbers to 735 hp (548 kW) and 735 pound-feet (997 Nm) of torque.
Glimpses of the cabin suggest there are a pair of screens in a single bezel. The setup reportedly consists of a 12.3-inch driver’s display and a 14.9-inch infotainment monitor. It should run the iDrive 8 software.
The entire 5 Series range has a new generation on the way. Generally, BMW releases its M models after the regular versions. The lesser grades should arrive in 2023. We might have to wait until 2024 for the M5. There are also rumors of an M5 Touring, and the wagon might even go on sale in the US.
