2025 BMW M5 Hybrid: A Super Sedan Prediction

Introducing Sedan and Wagon Options

The new BMW 5 Series lineup doesn’t include an M550i version, which means you’ll have to wait until next year’s M5 to get a brawny V8. But don’t despair – the M division is set to turn the super sedan into a plug-in hybrid, dubbed the “G90”. Our speculative rendering of the model attempts to predict the future by taking off the camouflage seen on various prototypes.

BMW has made it abundantly clear that the next iteration of the M5 is going to take on a new look, as they recently showed off an M Performance model known as the M60 i5. The marque has affirmed that the electric car’s kidney grille design will carry over to the full-fledged edition, but it’s uncertain whether this will be exactly replicated or in slight variance form. In comparison to the exiting F90 M5 with its robust vertical slats, the incoming vehicle will feature horizontal bars, following the footsteps of current models like the XM, M2, X5 M, and X6 M.

The carbon fibre caps and roof may do little to seriously reduce weight overall. The current M5 Competition is already an incredibly hefty 1,895 kg (4,177 lbs). But the new model with its plug-in hybrid setup will undoubtedly be even bigger; tipping the scales past 2,000 kg. Whilst it won’t even come close to equalling the heft of the XM (2,710 kg or 5,974 lbs) , it will still be by far the heaviest in the 5 Series.

Rumors are swirling that the upcoming M5 will boast the electrified twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8. Reports suggest that it should generate more than 700 horsepower without outmatching the power of the XM Label Red. The Red reportedly produces 738hp and a remarkable 738 lb-ft (1,000 Nm) of torque, which makes it the most powerful manufactured vehicle ever made by BMW.

When searching for ultimate practicality, you’re in luck as the M5 Touring (G99) is making a comeback in its third generation. Previously teased this week, the automotive power wagon is due to make its debut in 2024, and according to BMW USA’s social media channels, it is expected to be available in the US to compete against the Audi RS6 Avant and Mercedes-AMG E63 Estate.
