BMW dealership

The sixth generation of the BMW 5 Series Touring offers, for the first time, an all-electric drive in the form of the BMW i5 Touring. A flexible drive architecture allows model variants with gasoline and diesel engines, plug-in hybrid systems and purely electric drive systems to be produced on a single production line at the BMW Group’s Dingolfing plant.

The launch in Germany, many other European countries and Japan will begin in May 2024, with other markets to follow in June 2024.

Compared to its predecessor, the new BMW 5 Series Touring is 97 millimeters longer (5,060 millimeters), 32 millimeters wider (1,900 millimeters) and 17 millimeters higher (1,515 millimetres). The new BMW 5 Series Touring has the longest wheelbase in its class, increasing by 20 millimeters to 2,995 millimeters.

The new BMW i5 Touring is the first all-electric premium model in its competitive field. It will be available in two versions from the outset.

In the BMW i5 M60 xDrive Touring, two highly integrated drive units on the front and rear axles together form an electric all-wheel drive with up to 442 kW/601 hp. With M Launch Control or M Sport Boost activated, the system torque is increased to 820 N·m (605 ft-lb).

The top model accelerates from a standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds and its top speed is electronically limited to 230 km/h (143 mph). The electric motor of the BMW i5 eDrive40 Touring is located on the rear axle (combined power consumption according to WLTP: 19.3 to 16.5 kWh/100 km (62 miles)) and generates a maximum output of 250 kW/340 hp and a maximum torque of up to 430 N·m (317 ft-lb) with Sport Boost or Launch Control function.

The BMW i5 eDrive40 Touring accelerates from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.1 seconds.

In both models, the high-voltage battery located in the underbody provides a usable energy content of 81.2 kWh. In addition to the efficient electric motors, adaptive recuperation and heat pump technology for heating and cooling the interior, drive and high-voltage battery contribute to the long-distance capability of the BMW i5 Touring.

The range determined in the WLTP test procedure is 445 to 506 kilometers (277 to 314 miles) for the BMW i5 M60 xDrive Touring and 483 to 560 kilometers (300 to 348 miles) for the BMW i5 eDrive40 Touring.

The battery can be charged with alternating current with an output of up to 11 kW as standard and up to 22 kW as an option. The high-voltage battery can be charged with direct current with a power of up to 205 kW. Anticipatory thermal management for the high-voltage battery optimises efficiency when using fast-charging stations. Connected Home Charging for the all-electric and plug-in hybrid models creates the conditions for solar and load-optimised as well as cost-optimised charging. The BMW i5 Touring is also suitable for the Plug & Charge Multi Contract function.

New diesel engines with 48-volt mild hybrid technology. All diesel engines available for the new BMW 5 Series Touring are combined with 48-volt mild hybrid technology and an 8-speed Steptronic transmission. The four-cylinder engine of the BMW 520d Touring models available at market launch (combined fuel consumption: 5.9 – 5.3 l/ 100 km (62 miles); CO2 emissions: 154 – 141 g/km according to WLTP) and BMW 520d xDrive Touring (combined fuel consumption: 6.2 – 5.7 l/ 100 km (62 miles); CO2 emissions: 163 – 149 g/ according to WLTP) generates a maximum output of 145 kW/197 hp and a maximum torque of 400 N·m (295 lb-ft).

The drive portfolio will be supplemented by an in-line six-cylinder diesel engine in summer 2024. At the same time, two model variants with the latest generation of plug-in hybrid drive will follow.
