The new-generation BMW M5 may come as an all-electric and a plug-in hybrid vehicle some day in 2024, British journalists revealed.
The rivals, like Audi with its e-tron GT or Porsche with its Taycan Turbo S, will apparently get a strong competitor from BMW over time.
This is about the electrified BMW M5 making up to 1000 hp, when comes in the pure electric variant with a three-motor layout – 335 hp each, one driving the front wheels and two in the rear.
As the hybrid modification (AWD one), it will be powered by a twin-turbo V8 that delivers around 750 hp. For comparison: the most powerful BMW M5 today is the 2021 Competition version (in the photo above) with a twin-turbo 4.4-liter 617-hp 8-cylinder.
The Porsche Taycan Turbo S can boast 750 hp, the Tesla Model S Performance makes 778 hp.
The new M5 is expected in 2024. In general, BMW aims at 25 electric vehicles by 2023, including the 5- and 7-Series, i3, i4, iX3, iNext, X1, plus the Mini Cooper SE.
