Rumour Mill: Next BMW M5 Getting 750 hp PHEV Driveline

All-new 5er could be revealed next year

  • All-new 2023 BMW 5 Series will get every driveline imaginable

  • Model could be last ICE model from BMW


The next generation of the BMW 5 Series is getting a complete workover, says Autocar. That includes new EV models as well as plug-ins, with the report saying that a new M5 could offer 750 hp, turning the super sedan into a true rocket ship.

The report says that the new 5er will arrive for 2023, and like other new BMW models will offer some pure combustion gas and diesel models, but will also have PHEV and fully EV models. It will sit atop the CLAR architecture used by all current BMWs larger than the 1 Series (and 2GC), and that will allow the new drivelines,

Autocar says it will be one of the last all-new BMWs before the company’s electric transition’s third phase that will be purely electric will all-new EV powertrains. This one will still be part of the “Power of Choice” strategy, hence the wide range of powertrains.

According to the report, the 4.4L N63 engine used in the M550i, by then 15 years old, is unlikely to get the expenditure needed to meet the next generation of Euro emissions. So instead it could see a version of the brand’s inline sixes and a 200 hp electric motor to give it around 500 hp.

The M5 is also said to be adding a PHEV driveline for the next version, pairing the current S63 V8 with a 201 hp electric motor for 750 hp. That’s about 134 hp more than the current car, more than offsetting the weight of the battery and better competing with the anticipated 800 hp AMG GT 63 PHEV.

Lastly, Autocar says an even more powerful model could come, based on the new i5. That one could have three electric motors and 800 hp, making it out-M the M5. Whatever happens at BMW, it sure sounds interesting.
