The future generation of the BMW M5 has been detailed in a new report as the model in question is about to be introduced sometimes next year.
BMW is apparently starting the development of a new generation of the 5-Series and the range topper, the BMW M5, is what everyone is interested in, really. The model in question will be coming with some significant upgrades which will definitely put some space between the current one and the new one and, for example, the performance sedan will be coming with an optional xDrive all-wheel drive system, for the very first time, to handle with the 626 HP (460 kW).
The regular version of the next-generation BMW 5-Series will be coming with a plug-in hybrid version, which will be using a 2.0 liter four-cylinder unit, connected to an electric motor, while the popular 3.0 liter six-cylinder petrol burner will be coming with 354 HP (260 kW) and 500 Nm (368 lb-ft) of torque. Semi-autonomous driving will be added to the model, along with a completely different interior and an evolved exterior design. Improved voice commands or revised iDrive controller are also expected. More details on the model remain unknown for the moment.
