BMW starting the i5 deliveries this weekend in Germany

European buyers who made reservations for the BWM i5 are in for an exciting weekend this week as the carmaker reveals it will commence deliveries of the electric i5.

The new i5 will then show up in the US a week later, while the rest of the world waits till the 25th of November.

BMW is also officially announcing the 5 Series Touring, arriving in spring 2024. The estate car will offer the same engine options, meaning BMW will sell two drive versions; the rear-wheel-drive 250 kW eDrive40 and the all-wheel-drive 442 kW i5 M60 xDrive. While the estate’s driving range is not known yet, the sedan RWD offers between 498 km and 582 km between charges, while the AWD version will last between 455 and 516 km. The former starts from 70,200 euros.

More information on the i5 Touring, including the prices. But what is already decided is that it will not be offered globally. According to BMW, “The unique combination of sporty elegance, modern functionality and locally emission-free driving pleasure is developed specifically for the automotive markets in Europe as well as in Japan and Taiwan.”

BMW has been producing the 5 Series in Dingolfing, Germany, since July, after a May reveal. It has promised another version of the 5 Series, with the same driving range as the sedan.

Electrify America has promised North American i5 buyers two years of free charging.
