BMW has once again made significant changes to the design of its 5 Series models. The new BMW M5 PHEV 2024 model is a big draw for hard-core sedan buyers. They expect larger displays and fuel-efficient engines. The most notable changes are the front bumper, which is no longer reminiscent of the original M5s. Instead, it is beginning to resemble EVs such as the i4 because the side air vents have been reduced. This is a sneak peek of the supercharged sports vehicle.
2024 BMW M5 PHEV Review
The redesigned BMW M5 PHEV 2024, which is covered in a lot more camouflage, looks much more aggressive. The wider grille is just one of many changes made. We can see that the standard headlights and rear lights are being replaced with newer versions. A sportier hood and a new quad exhaust system were also noticeable. The prototype, even though it is well hidden, shows that BMW’s designers chose to give the 5er an aggressive look.
If you select the Competition option you will also receive the M Sport exhaust, the extended black exterior trim, and the dramatic M Shadowline Headlamps. Three different 20-inch wheels with non-run flat tires are also available. It also comes with automatic soft-closing doors and parking assistance functions that prevent damage to our alloys. As you can see, this luxury car was designed to take on mountain hairpins and blast down the autobahn. It also handles daily stresses.
San Remo Green Metallic and Skyscraper Gray Metallic are both now available. The following metallic colors will no longer be produced: Hatch Grey Metallic, Snapper Rocks Blue Metallic, Motegi Red Metallic, Donington Grey Metalic, Bluestone Metalic, and Frozen Bluestone Mineralic.
According to reports, the new BMW M5 PHEV 2024 will feature more elegant sport seating with leather upholstery. BMW, unlike many of its competitors, has not adopted a design strategy that is based on touchscreens. This makes it easy to adjust the radio and air conditioning in the car while driving thanks to tactile buttons. Standard features include a heated steering column, heated seats, and power-adjustable steering columns. However, there are options such as heated rear seats, vents on the front seats, massage features, and climate control with four zones.
The PHEV M5 will also have a 12.3″ touchscreen and the latest BMW iDrive system. The PHEV version also comes with a Wi-Fi Hotspot, basic connectivity for Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, and a WiFi hotspot. Interior customization options include Tartufo Full Merino Leather and Smoke White/Black Full Merino Leather.
The sporty sedan comes with a comprehensive set of driver-assistance functions, such as automatic high beams, blind-spot monitors, and lane-departure warnings. This sedan also comes standard with a forward-collision alert, automatic emergency brake, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist, and adaptive speed control.
The XM, the flagship SUV of the company, will be the first genuine M plug-in hybrid model ever produced. This model has 650 horsepower and 590 lb.-ft. of torque. The 2024 BMW M5 will be available as the second model. It will have a plug-in hybrid V8 4.4-liter twin-turbo that could deliver 700+ horsepower.
The M5 could have a greater range of electric driving if the XM gives any indication. The battery would be used to power the vehicle, allowing owners to commute to and from the office in silence. The Competition package adds even more horsepower. The Competition badge, as well as a louder exhaust and a better suspension, are also included in this model. This model’s current variant reaches 60 miles an hour in less than 2.8 seconds.
The M5 gets 15 miles per gallon in the city, and 21 on the highway. These numbers are both lower than those of the Mercedes-AMG E63S sedan. As for the PHEV, we can also expect to see even higher mileage ratings.
The 2024 BMW 5 Series, as shown in their first teaser video and the spy photos we have on our website, will likely look like the current model. However, that doesn’t mean there won’t be some radical design changes. The grille is one of the changes. It will be larger than ever, but thankfully not as large as the 7 Series. The teaser confirms that the LED daytime running light will also have two vertical lights.
Oliver Zipse confirmed that the teaser was for the first-ever electric i5. The design of all other models will be the same, including the mild hybrid and plug-in hybrid.
The fully-electric M 5 Series is likely to be an M Performance version called the i5 M50, similar to the i4. Zipse claims that the i4 M50 will be “the most popular BMW M model in the world by 2022”, and this is probably what motivated them to make an M Performance version for the i5. BMW did not mention the M5’s full-blown plug-in hybrid system in their official press release, but it is rumored that the M5 will have a similar setup to the XM.
