The BMW 5 Series is Getting an Electric Makeover
The BMW 5 Series is Getting an Electric Makeover BMW already has plenty of battery-powered SUVs, including the i3 and the X5 xDrive40e, but the company has now confirmed that there’s an electric 5 Series on its way as well. The iPerformance badge indicates that this model will have extra high-tech features, and it could be built using parts from other BMW models, like the hybrid drivetrain used in the 330e. If you can’t wait to see the new electric 5 Series, you’re in luck, because we have all the information you need!
BMW may be on the verge of expanding their electric vehicle lineup with a new model. The German car manufacturer has been teasing a new 5-Series and the first thing that people noticed was its sporty design.
However, it seems like BMW has some big plans for this car since the company’s CEO, Harald Krüger, mentioned this vehicle as being part of BMW’s upcoming iPerformance lineup which consists of their hybrid and electric vehicles. This isn’t the first time they have teased a new electric vehicle either. Last year they unveiled a concept called Vision Next 100 which showcased what BMW could do if they went fully into manufacturing all electric vehicles.
2) What We Know So Far
-BMW has announced that they will release a new electric car, the iX3, in 2020. This will be the first battery-electric vehicle from BMW.
-The BMW iX3 will have a range of 275 miles on a single charge and can go from 0 to 60 mph in under six seconds.
-BMW hasn’t yet released any information about what it would look like or how much it would cost, but we do know that it’s coming out next year and will be available for purchase at BMW dealerships around the world. -This announcement comes just a few months after the release of their BMW 530e iPerformance, which already offers a similar electric motor with a shorter range.
-This announcement shows BMW’s commitment to becoming more environmentally friendly by expanding its lineup of electric vehicles.
3) Rumored Features
BMW has announced that they will be introducing their all-electric car in 2020. The electric car will have a range of 280 miles and can be recharged to full power in 30 minutes. The new BMW electric SUV will have three different driving modes: automatic, manual, and a special coasting mode that lets the driver set the desired level of regenerative braking for coasting downhill or on flats. All of this is to give drivers more control over the vehicle and make it feel more like a hybrid or diesel engine car. It should also help with EV range anxiety. With this BMW electric SUV, there are no traditional exhaust pipes or grills which should make it easier for those who live in tight urban spaces.
4) When Can We Expect It?
BMW has been teasing their electric car release for over a year now and it looks like they are finally ready to show the world what they’ve been working on. They have announced that the BMW i5 will be unveiled on November 15th, which just so happens to be exactly one year since the first teaser video was released. BMW has also said that all of their new models will be electrified by 2025, so it’s safe to assume that this new EV will most likely come with a fully electric drivetrain with at least 250 miles of range. In addition to all of this, BMW has also announced plans for a luxury SUV in 2020 (probably called the X6) which means that there are going to be two new full-electric models coming in 2020 alone.
BMW has been teasing the upcoming release of their new electric car, the i5. The company will be unveiling the car at an event on March 14th in Munich. BMW describes the i5 as a high-tech electric sports sedan and says it will be able to travel 340 km on a single charge. The biggest difference between this new model and previous versions is that BMW will be releasing two different versions of the car. One with a petrol engine and one with an electric motor. It will also come with a new feature called ChargeNow which allows drivers to charge their cars for free at any public charging station, but only up to 80% capacity.
