The next-generation BMW 5 Series was spied on public roads this week as BMW pushed the development of its midsize executive sedan. This prototype, which has a "hybrid test vehicle" label on its rear bumper, gives us an early glimpse of what to expect from the redesigned four-door.
We haven't seen much of the next-gen 5-series so far, but we expect it will follow a similar formula to the larger 7-series discovered in the wild last fall. We expect several electrified versions, including both a plug-in hybrid and an all-electric model. Otto and diesel engines are also likely, with the latter reserved for the overseas market.
BMW has used the 5 Series platform as a test bed for its electrification plans, and while "Project BEV" bears the skin of a current model, the underlying architecture is expected to be used in future generations. BMW recently tested a battery-electric drive train with 711 hp (111 more than the current biturbo V8 M5) from three electric motors. We expect a toned-down version of this setup to underpin the all-electric i5 variant.
The only thing traditional about the next-generation 5 Series seems to be its design, which is still unmistakably that of a sedan. While its shorter wheelbase and more aggressively sloping rear greenhouse don't make for as generous an interior space as the larger 7 Series, it should be more than enough for rear passenger comfort.
Looking for the next 5 Series in 2023 as the 2024 model.
