BMW’s new Touring has leaked onto the internet, or rather its appearance. Two photos have appeared on social networks that show this important model in an electric version bearing the designation i5 (Variants with an internal combustion engine under the hood will look identical down to the details, the same is the case with the sedan.). The pictures obviously come from the official photo shoot of the news.
The specimen in the leaked photos impresses with its interesting green paint and distinctive rear bumper. The design of the roof spoiler looks interesting, we can also see the steeply “rising” bottom line of the windows. The photos also indicate that the Touring will lose the ability to open only the fifth door window. We will see…
BMW has previously confirmed that the second body variant of the new 5 Series will be available with the same range of engines and powertrains as the sedan. This means that the station wagon will be offered with combustion engines equipped with 48V mild-hybrid technology, with plug-in hybrid systems and for the first time also with a purely electric drive. Dubbed the i5 Touring, the electric car has reportedly been developed for the European, Japanese and Taiwanese automotive markets.
Nothing is guaranteed to change in the interior either. So expect a sophisticated mix of the most modern technologies, quality materials and decorative details made of aluminum and glass. We also appreciate that the iDrive rotary controller has remained, facilitating the control of countless infotainment functions.
We still have to wait for more details, including the answer to the key question of how big the trunk will be (the outgoing 5 Series Touring is capable of 570/1,700 liters).
But we will find out relatively soon, BMW has planned the premiere of the new 5 Series Touring for the spring of this year.
Are you looking forward to the new BMW 5 Series Touring?
Sure, but with an incinerator.
Sure, the electric one.
