The all-new 2024 BMW 5 Series G60 is here. A 5 Series that BMW claims is both more dynamic and more technologically advanced than anything the brand has ever released. But the headline for many will be the i5 variant. Yes for the first time, the 5 Series will also be available in a fully electric version. Can BMW apply the Swiss-army knife approach and still carry on the tradition of excellence with the 5 Series? Let’s dive into the details.

The eighth generation G60 5 Series will be offered worldwide with an all-electric drivetrain, while the flexible architecture also allows for highly efficient internal combustion engines with 48-volt mild hybrid technology. In 2024, a plug-in hybrid system will also be available in the US. The public debut is scheduled for the Munich IAA in October and will see production commence at that time as well.

2024 BMW 5 Series

The BMW 5 Series has a long history of success, dating back to 1972 when the first generation of the sporty and elegant four-door sedan was introduced. Since then, its worldwide popularity has steadily grown. With its unique combination of dynamic performance and high level of comfort for long-distance travel, it has become the quintessential business sedan. By spring 2023, over ten million BMW 5 Series vehicles had been manufactured, solidifying its position as a benchmark in its segment.

That’s a lot to live up to with this new iteration.

The new BMW 5 Series is made at Plant Dingolfing, BMW’s biggest European plant, which indecently is celebrating its 50th anniversary. The first car made there was a first-generation E12 5 Series back in 1973. Nowadays, the Dingolfing plant not only produces BMW’s luxury class cars but also serves as the company’s e-drive production competence center, where they make the electric motors and high-voltage batteries for the BMW i5 right on site.

The new BMW 5 Series is a sporty and elegant sedan right at the heart of BMW’s four-door model lineup. It’s more present and elegant than the 3 Series, and more dynamic and sporty than the 7 Series. The new model is bigger than the previous generation, with increased length, width, height, and wheelbase, which makes for more comfortable seating, especially in the rear.

2024 BMW 5 Series

Revised silhouette and dynamically stretched proportions.

As you can see BMW has focused on making the front design of the new BMW 5 Series more sleek, with LED headlights that show the traditional four-lamp face in a minimalist form. The daytime running lights and turn signals are two nearly vertical LED elements, which look really cool. The BMW kidney grille, inspired by early 5 Series generations, is a visual center at the front that gives the car a sporty appeal. You can even get an optional illuminated contour line if you want a bit more panache.

The new BMW 5 Series has a decidedly sportier look in this new generation likely meant to differentiate the sedan a bit more from the army of X5s out there in the world. While the proportions have unfortunately been altered a bit due to the longer front overhang, the hood is long and the kidney grille is upright as you’d expect. The roofline flows nicely into the trunk, giving it a sleek, athletic shape.

The sides really emphasize the sportiness. It has a high shoulder line, and two flowing lines that give it a sculpted look. Additionally the black trim along the bottom makes the car seem lower and more streamlined. And there’s even subtle ‘5’ design on the rear side windows which we’re reserve judgement on until we see it in the flesh.

2024 BMW 5 Series

Wide range of paintwork, BMW i5 M60 xDrive and M Sport Package with specific design features.

You’ve got lots of color options, including solid colors, metallics, and BMW’s own special ‘Frozen’ colors.

The BMW 5 Series M Performance model and the M Sport Package make the sportiness even more obvious. The M Performance model has big air intakes, a grille with horizontal slats, high-gloss black trim on the side skirts and mirrors, 19-inch wheels and an aggressive rear. The M Sport Package, available on the other models, has similar upgrades like big air intakes, side skirts, black trim and 19-inch wheels. It can also add options like illuminated BMW grille, shadowline headlights, a rear spoiler and more black trim. You can even get red brake calipers with the M Sport brakes.

Interior and Equipment. Driving pleasure and travel comfort combined with innovative flair.

The interior of the new BMW 5 Series is all about comfort, space and high-tech features. There’s lots of room, great materials, and the latest digital services. The simple yet modern design, sporty feel and innovative options make it the perfect tech-savvy business sedan.

The highlight is the fully digital BMW Curved Display. It reimagines BMW’s usual driver-focused setup. It includes a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster and a huge 14.9-inch center touchscreen that curve together into one seamless display. The Curved Display is the heart of the new BMW iDrive system, which now runs on BMW Operating System 8.5. It promises an easy-to-read home screen, one-touch access to features, and intuitive touch controls. We’ll reserve judgment until we go hands-on but it would seem to right a few wrongs from 8.0.

As usually you can also control things with the steering wheel buttons, console dial and voice commands. Optional extras include a head-up display and gesture control. The new system cuts down on lots of buttons by moving many controls to the touchscreen – a move that we’ve and most other automotive journalists have called a mistake in the most recent BMWs

The BMW 8.5 home screen always shows the navigation map or other info you choose. On the left side of the center screen are vertically stacked widgets you can scroll through. Some widgets, like “My Vehicle,” let you swipe horizontally to see different info. Just tap the home button at the bottom of the screen to return to the home screen. There are also direct access buttons for climate control, all apps, navigation, media, communication, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

BMW 8.5 offers more digital content for entertainment and information. It has faster updates, better EV charging location info, and improved access to BMW’s online services. You can even stream video on the center screen or play games through the AirConsole platform.

2024 BMW 5 Series

Available fully leather-free interior.

The seats in the new BMW 5 Series Sedan have been redesigned for a noticeable increase in comfort and optimal adjustment. Sport seats are standard equipment. Multi-contour seats are standard on i5 M60 xDrive and optional on other models.
The backrests of the outer rear seats extend far into the door areas, especially in the shoulder area, increasing seating comfort in back. The flowing transition between the instrument panel at the front and the backrests in the rear to the door panels harmoniously encloses the entire passenger compartment. The folding rear seat backrest is split 40:20:40. The three elements can be folded down individually or together to create additional space for long pieces of cargo. The luggage compartment of the new BMW i5 offers 17.3 cubic feet of storage, while the 530i and 530i xDrive each provide 18.4 cubic feet.
Tthe new BMW 5 Series may be fitted with a fully leather-free interior. Leather-like, perforated Veganza is used on the seats as well as the dashboard and door panels and, for the first time, the steering wheel. Extended Merino leather upholstery in several bicolor variants remains an option.
The M Sport Package for the new BMW 5 Series includes exclusive seat surfaces in Veganza/Alcantara finish with unique perforation in the shoulder area and translucent accents in red and blue. M pedals, an M driver’s footrest, and M-specific displays on the Information Display add to the sporty environment.

2024 BMW 5 Series

The BMW 5 Series Drivetrains in Both Electric and ICE Variants

The new BMW 5 Series comes with a flexible range of powertrains, including fully electric models and efficient gas engines. This gives customers around the world options tailored to their needs and local infrastructure.

The G60 Electric BMW i5 Models

BMW’s electric motors are really powerful and efficient. They work like current-excited synchronous motors, so they don’t need rare earth metals for the rotors. At launch, the BMW i5 will come in two versions. The BMW i5 M60 xDrive is the high-performance model at the top of the lineup. Both the i5 M60 xDrive and the i5 eDrive40 use BMW’s latest eDrive technology.

The i5 eDrive40

The i5 eDrive40 has an electric motor in back that makes 335 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, or up to 317 pound-feet in Sport Boost mode. It can do 0 to 60 in 5.7 seconds and hits a top speed of 120 mph.

The i5 M60 xDrive

The i5 M60 xDrive is the most powerful 5 Series. It has electric motors on both axles that put out a combined 590 horsepower. The rear motor makes 335 horsepower, while the front makes 257. Together they produce 549 pound-feet of torque, or up to 605 in M Sport Boost mode. The i5 M60 xDrive can rocket from 0 to 60 in just 3.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 143 mph with performance tires or 130 mph with all-seasons.

2024 BMW 5 Series

To unleash the full power, just pull the “Boost” paddle by the steering wheel for 0.8 seconds. You’ll see a Sport Boost message on the gauge cluster, the pedal will be more responsive and the audio system will switch to a sportier sound. With the M Sport Package Pro, the i5 eDrive40 also gets Launch Control for maximum acceleration from a stop.

The i5 models use BMW’s latest high-voltage batteries with four modules of 72 cells and three modules of 12 cells. The low-profile batteries fit under the car so passenger space isn’t affected. The i5 eDrive40 battery holds 84.3 kilowatt-hours, giving it an estimated EPA range of 295 miles. The i5 M60 xDrive can go an estimated 256 miles per charge.

The i5 supports Level 2 charging at up to 11 kilowatts and fast charging at up to 205 kilowatts. With fast charging, you can boost the battery from 10 to 80% in about 30 minutes. New owners get two years of free 30-minute fast charging sessions at Electrify America stations.

2024 BMW 5 Series

The i5 uses adaptive recuperation to recover energy when braking or lifting off the accelerator. The system can adjust recuperation levels based on traffic using data from the navigation and driver assists. You can also manually choose high, medium or low recuperation, including a “coast” mode with no drag. An innovative heat pump system provides heating and cooling for the interior, drive components and battery to maximize efficiency.

Overall, the new BMW 5 Series offers a range of advanced electrified and efficient powertrains. The BMW i5 models provide blistering performance and long range using the latest eDrive technology and high-voltage batteries. And additional features like one-pedal driving, fast charging and intelligent climate control help make the i5 an all-around impressive fully electric sedan.

2024 BMW 5 Series

My Mode EFFICIENT with new MAX RANGE function.
The i5’s range can be moderated by activating a new drive system function; MAX RANGE. In this mode, drive power and top speed are carefully restricted and comfort functions scaled back, conserving battery power.
The MAX RANGE mode is primarily for critical situations where drivers are unable to recharge mid-journey where they had originally planned and must continue to an alternative charging point. To makd the most of the available energy, the vehicle’s top speed is limited to 56 mph, the climate control system is deactivated as are seat heating, seat ventilation, and steering wheel heating. A popup window appears in the control display indicating the recalculated range. The speed and power output gauges in the information display are also modified accordingly and the new energy conservation profile is taken into account in the range forecast.
The MAX RANGE mode can be selected using the control display’s touchscreen functionality, the iDrive Controller, or voice commands to the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant. It can also be deactivated by full-throttle acceleration (kickdown), engaging the M Sport Boost function, or switching the window defrost to maximum.
Charging efficiency is optimized using the latest charging software.
As the battery charge level increases, the charging procedure continuously reduces the charging power instead of delivering the so-call “staircase curve”. This makes the charging curve smoother, shortening the charging time. Furthermore, the waste heat generated by the electric motors is used for controlling the temperature of the high-voltage battery in the BMW i5. This can significantly reduce the energy required for preheating the battery on the way to a fast charging station.
Battery thermal management for optimized DC fast charging.
Anticipatory thermal management ensures that the temperature of the high-voltage battery is optimally controlled in advance of a stop at a fast-charging station. When the navigation system is active, the battery is automatically pre-conditioned before a planned charging stop. Pre-conditioning the battery can also be manually activated and deactivated by the customer at any time.
“Overcooling” of the high-voltage storage unit during fast charging is prevented by implementing full and partial cooling power phases in the charging process. This prevents excessively low temperatures from occurring during fast charging, especially at high states of charge. This offers increased potential for short charging times and reduced ageing of the battery cells. In addition it is possible to save individual charging settings for several individual charging points. They are then automatically restored the next time the driver approaches the respective charging point.

2024 BMW 5 Series

The G60 5 Series ICE Models

New generation of four and six-cylinder internal combustion engines.
The internal combustion engines offered in the new BMW 5 Series all stem from a common modular design. The associated innovations include the Miller combustion process, which shortens the opening times of the intake valves, a redesign of the intake ducts and combustion chambers, as well as innovations in the areas of camshaft control, injection, ignition system and exhaust gas routing.
In addition, the engines feature the latest version of the fully variable valve control VALVETRONIC. Their switchable rocker arms on the exhaust side make it possible to stop the gas exchange when required, thus reducing the engine’s frictional torque in overrun phases by about two thirds. This allows braking energy to be recuperated more effectively.
BMW 530i and 530i xDrive: New four-cylinder engine.
The new generation of the 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder engine also features the latest BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and an exhaust manifold integrated into the cylinder head. In the BMW 530i and 530i xDrive models, the engine produces 255 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, increases of 7 hp and 38 lb-ft. This allows the 530i to accelerate from 0-60 mph in only 5.9 seconds,  while additional all-wheel drive traction drops that time to 5.8 seconds for the 530i xDrive.

2024 BMW 5 Series

BMW 540i xDrive power output significantly increased.
In the inline 6-cylinder engine of the BMW 540i xDrive, which will go into production in November 2023, the VANOS camshaft phasing system is now operated electronically. The resulting extended adjustment range has a positive effect on the powertrain’s emissions.
The 3.0-liter engine features the latest BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and generates a maximum output of 375 hp, an increase of 40 hp over the previous generation. The maximum torque increases by 52 lb-ft 384 and can be boosted to 398 lb­ft with the additional power of the 48-volt mild hybrid system. The new BMW 540i xDrive can accelerate from 0-60 mph in a scant 4.5 seconds.

2024 BMW 5 Series

Driving experience: Redefined chassis Focused on Engagement

One of the more important changes to this new G60 5 Series is that it has the longest wheelbase in its segment and an increased track widths at the front and rear axles compared to the previous generation. It also offers near perfect 50:50 weight distribution, lightweight construction, and body and chassis connection rigidity optimized with specific struts. According to BMW this allow the car to “feel” more engaged than the previous car.
The flexible drive architecture of the new BMW 5 Series results in a wider range of vehicle weights. This is accounted for by specifically modifying and individually tuning chassis components and adapting all control systems accordingly in each powertrain configuration. Regardless of the drive concept, every model variant offers an excellent driving experience by combining the refined sportiness and superior driving comfort typical of the BMW 5 Series.
Both the double-wishbone front axle and the five-link rear axle of the new BMW 5 Series have undergone extensive development. To optimize the acoustic properties, the front axle support received an elastic steering gear mount. In the BMW i5 M60 xDrive, noise from the electric drivetrain is insulated by large powertrain mounts. The all-wheel drive variants of the new BMW 5 Series each feature a model-specific aluminum stiffening plate under the front axle support. Like the housing of the high-voltage battery in the underbody of the BMW i5, it contributes to optimizing the rigidity of the front end. The rear axle support, manufactured using aluminum integral casting, combines low weight with high rigidity. The vibration damping and acoustic insulation of the BMW i5’s electric drive unit at the rear wheels are optimized by a large bearing and specific rubber mounts for the rear axle support.

Sport steering with variable ratio now standard.
All BMW 5 Series are equipped with the latest version of electromechanical power steering (EPS) as standard. The standard sport steering includes a new, more direct, steering angle-dependent steering ratio. Its range of functions also includes Servotronic speed-related power assistance as well as comfort or sport-oriented settings available in My Modes.
BMW i5 M60 xDrive features model-specific chassis technology for superior performance.
As the top model in the range, the BMW i5 M60 xDrive not only has the most powerful drivetrain, but also comes with standard suspension equipment that ensures the power of its two electric motors can be harnessed to deliver a superior performance experience. Its standard Adaptive M Suspension Professional includes electronically controlled dampers, Integral Active Steering (which allows the rear wheels to turn in or out of phase with the front wheels up to 2.5 degrees), and lowers the ride height by 0.3 inches compared to the standard chassis of the BMW i5 eDrive40. The dynamic performance, agility, and handling precision of the high-performance model are enhanced by standard 19-inch M light alloy wheels with mixed performance tires and a powerful M sport braking system.
Stroke-dependent dampers for the BMW i5.
The BMW i5 features new stroke­dependent control of the dampers on both axles, both as standard and with the M sport suspension. The additional hydraulic damping, which acts in the direction of pull, noticeably calms the body when compensating for the vibrations caused by uneven road surfaces and dynamic cornering, thus enhancing the sporty and confident handling of the vehicle. The additional damping is spring-travel­dependent, so that vibrations building up are initially damped linearly and then additionally absorbed by a second piston in the event of greater deflection. This prevents excessive bouncing or rocking of the body when driving over large bumps and thus prevents unpleasant vibration behavior.
The stroke-dependent damping serves as an active tuning element, which optimizes the balance between sportiness and comfort specifically for each model. The positive influence of the additional damping on the i5’s driving behavior is not only noticeable under heavy load, but in situations where a wheel lifts slightly after being triggered by a small bump.
The BMW i5 is also equipped with rear-axle air suspension as standard. The self-levelling suspension ensures optimum vehicle height for comfortable and safe driving, even when heavily loaded. The air supply to the suspension is regulated individually for each wheel and can thus also compensate for uneven loading.

2024 BMW 5 Series

Adaptive M Suspension Professional with optional Active Roll Stabilization.
The Adaptive M Suspension Professional on the BMW i5 M60 xDrive can be enhanced with optional Active Roll Stabilization (delayed introduction) including Active Roll Comfort. Electric swivel motors ensure fast and precise compensation of lateral roll forces. In its latest version, the system utilizes a 48-volt electric motor for this purpose.
Active Roll Stabilization benefits agility and driving precision, while at the same time enabling a dynamic steering response by providing better roll support. It also increases comfort when driving straight ahead by decoupling the fixed connection of a conventional anti-roll bar. This reduces body roll caused by one-sided road unevenness. The Active Roll Comfort function ensures that the system not only reduces body roll, but also builds up a counter-torque to keep the body horizontal, especially when the road surface is uneven on one side.
Near-actuator wheel slip limitation for fast and precisely optimized traction.
The new BMW 5 Series now features near-actuator wheel slip limitation to deliver maximum agility and control in demanding driving situations. With this system, the traction control is integrated into the engine control unit. This eliminates the long signal paths to the control unit of the DSC (Dynamic Stability Control). so that the control interventions take place at up to 10 times the speed of conventional systems.
The near-actuator wheel slip limitation ensures optimized traction and superior directional stability even on slippery roads. Since it prevents loss of traction from the outset, especially when accelerating fast, but also during high-speed cornering, the Dynamic Stability Control DSC has to intervene much less frequently by selectively braking individual wheels to ensure confident and safe handling.
Light alloy wheels up to 21 inches.
The standard equipment of the new BMW 5 Series includes 19-inch light alloy wheels for both the i5 models and 530i models. Optional 20-inch and 21-inch light alloy wheels are available with either mixed performance or all-season non-runflat tires. The range also includes aerodynamic wheels, whose design and construction methods reduce both weight and air resistance.

2024 BMW 5 Series

2024 BMW 5 Series Autonomous Driving Offerings

Driving experience: driver assistance systems. Intelligent systems for automated driving and parking.
Borrowing technology from the recently released 7 Series, the systems for automated driving and parking for the new BMW 5 Series raises the car considerably. A technology suite featuring the latest generation of cameras, ultrasonic and radar sensors, a new software stack, a powerful computing platform and a connection to the BMW Cloud via 5G mobile communications enables the outstanding functionality of BMW’s current systems and offers unique potential for developing future automated driving functions.
2024 BMW 5 Series New Highway Assistant including Active Lane Change with eye activation.
The optional Driving Assistance Professional now includes the Highway Assistant, which enables attentive hands-free driving at speeds up to 85 mph where conditions and speed limits allow. Driver attention is continuously monitored by the system via an interior camera. The driver is fully responsible for the task of driving even when the Highway Assistant is activated and must always be able to take over should it become necessary.
The automated driving functions of the Driving Assistance Professional Package also include the new version of the Active Lane Change. In a world first, the Active Lane Change in the new BMW 5 Series can be controlled by eye activation.
The vehicle suggests a lane change, and the driver can confirm the lane change simply by looking in the corresponding outside rearview mirror. The Active Lane Change performs the necessary steering movements automatically up to a speed of 85 mph, traffic conditions and speed limits permitting. It is no longer necessary to confirm the lane change with the turn signal. This seamless interaction between the driver and the Automatic Lane Change provides a level of comfort and safety unique in the automotive sector.
An overview of the activated systems and their functionality is available to the driver via Assisted View in the instrument cluster. The central area of the cockpit display is reserved for an augmented reality representation of the vehicle and its surroundings. For this purpose, camera images are combined with additional graphics and information. The images from the vehicle environment processed in this way provide the driver with a precise overview of the vehicle surrounding captured by cameras and sensors.
Automatic Park Assistant including Backup Assistant as standard.
The new BMW 5 Series also provides support when parking and maneuvering. The standard Automatic Park Assistant helps the driver in selecting and using parking spaces that are either parallel or perpendicular to the driving lane. In addition to the steering, it also takes over accelerating and braking as well as the gear shifts necessary when maneuvering, both when parking and when backing out.
The Backup Assistant, which is also standard, enables automated reversing in narrow and complex environments such as multi-story parking structures or driveways. To do this, it stores the steering movements on the route last driven forwards and at a maximum speed of 22 mph. The system can then travel the stored journey in reverse for a distance of up to 50 meters.
The optional Parking Assistant Plus adds the Parking View, Panorama View front and 3D View functions. This shows a 360-degree image of the vehicle and its surroundings from different perspectives on the Control Display. In addition, the Remote 30 View function allows the driver to view a three-dimensional live image of his vehicle and its surroundings transmitted to his smartphone (available for Apple iPhone from operating system iOS 16.2). The Drive Recorder and the Anti-Theft Recorder are also included in the range of functions of Parking Assistant Plus.
