BMW's revamped 5 series is coming, topped by the all-electric i5 M60, the first-ever 5 series electric model. The new 5 series rides on BMW's CLAR platform, shared with both the internal combustion and electric versions. The base i5 powers the rear wheels via two hub motors, with an 84.3 kWh battery pack in the floor for 335 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Those numbers translate into a 5.7-second 0-60 time and a range of 295 miles. The i5 M60 nearly doubles the output thanks to two hub motors at the front, for all-wheel-drive and 590 horsepower and 586 lb-ft, good for a 0-60 of 3.7 seconds. The same battery pack as the base i5 combined with the M60's extra weight drops the range to 256 miles. Both the electric and ICE-powered 5 series sedans share the same bodywork, a traditional three-box design with the Hofmeister kink slightly muted with black trim, while the electric models get blanked-out grille plugs. The new 5 series launches in October 2024.
