2024 BMW M5 Will Be A 1,000-Horsepower Electric Super Sedan

The next BMW M5 could get a triple e-motor setup which would allow it to hit 100 km/h in under 3 seconds.


  • The next-generation M5 will be the first M vehicle to be electrified.

  • There will be PHEV and fully electric versions.

  • The M5 will come after the G60 generation 5 Series expected in late 2023.


The BMW M5 has long held the title of one of the best-driving high-performance sedans in the world. The next-generation may retain this recognition and add eco-friendly to its description.

As usual, the all-new G60 BMW 5 Series will arrive first, sometime in late 2023. It will be followed by two versions of the legendary M5 super sedan.

Based on carmagazine’s report, the plug-in hybrid version will use BMW’s Power PHEV powertrain which will combine the boosted V8 and electric motors for an estimated output of 750 horsepower and 737 lb.-ft. of torque. Believe it or not, this iteration will be the “regular” one.

The fully-electric M5 will be built on the CLAR WE platform and feature three 250 kW electric motors. One will be fitted upfront while the others will each manage an individual rear wheel. The total 750 kW output, or 1,005 horsepower, will make this M5 insanely fast. The 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint is expected to fly by in 2.9 seconds and the associated 135 kWh battery is said to deliver up to 435 miles (700 km) of range based on the WLTP cycle.

Relatedly, the BMW Vision M Next Concept, which was to be the BMW i8’s successor and then some, has been canceled due to costs and the ongoing worldwide pandemic.
