2024 BMW 5 Series Revealed With Potent I5 M60 Electric Flagship


For gasoline aficionados, the 530i and all-wheel drive 530i xDrive will get a twin-turbo 2-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 255 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. The 540i xDrive gets a twin-turbo 3-liter inline-six that can throw down 375 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque through the help of a mild-hybrid system. At least until the full-fledged new M5 comes out, the EV i5 is the place to go if you want the fastest and most powerful 5-series. 

New for the 5-series is BMW’s Highway Assistant with an active lane change system. Instead of using your turn signal to activate the automatic lane change, all you need to do is look at the side view mirror and the car will change lanes by itself when it’s safe to do so. Inside the car is a 12.3-inch screen for all your pertinent gauges and driver information. That display is complemented by a 14.9-inch infotainment display. 

And taking a page from Tesla’s book is the addition of gaming to the BMW 5-Series experience. BMW is using technology from AirConsole to bring video games to the infotainment display to enjoy while you’re charging the car. Adding to the interior, BMW has an option if leather isn’t your thing with the ability to order a 5-series interior without a single square inch of leather, instead substituting it with vegan leather and Alcantara.
