They will be hybrids

BMW CEO Oliver Zipse said that the BMW M5 sedan and station wagon in the new generation will become hybrids and will be able to drive without using an internal combustion engine.

To be more precise, the new generation BMW M5 cars will be able to travel on electric power up to 70 kilometers on the WLTP cycle. Residents of small towns will be able to avoid using fuel at all during their daily trips.

The cars will receive a battery with a useful capacity of 18.6 kW·h, and the weight of the sedan will increase to 2443 kilograms, which will make it almost as heavy as the current BMW X5 M crossover.

The sedan will go into production in July, and the station wagon will be put on the assembly line in November.
