The BMW i5 is a mid-size electric sedan that fills the gap between the i4 and i7 models. It offers a punchy electric powertrain, balanced ride and handling, and a nicely-trimmed cabin.
The i5 comes in two powertrain options: the rear-drive eDrive40 with 335 horsepower and the dual-motor M60 xDrive with 590 horsepower. The eDrive40 has a range of 295 miles, while the M60 has a range of 256 miles. Both models can charge from 10 to 80 percent in 30 minutes.
The i5's interior is spacious and posh, featuring a large digital gauge display and infotainment touchscreen. It also includes standard driver-assistance features. The release date for the BMW i5 is set for October 2023, and the base model starts at $66,000.
