BMW i5 — Design and Specifications of New BMW i5 SUV. After i3 and i8, we have been so curious about the third model in BMW I series. I3 is a fully electric hatchback while i8 is the hybrid sports car. So, what is the next car going to be?. Well, the third car in the BMW I series is no longer a mystery because New BMW i5 has been revealed and it is going to be an SUV. Although this news is still a rumor, looking at the trend in the market nowadays and reflecting from BMW’s experience with i3 and i8, it is almost sure that i5 is going to come as an SUV.
BMW i5 Specifications
There is no update or news yet about the interior design of New BMW i5. But there are some rumors about the upgrade in the exterior. As a city SUV, of course, we expect something compact and light. It is possible that BMW will grant our wish in this department because this car will be built with the luxurious carbon fiber material, just like what BMW 7 series gets.
Moreover, this 2017/2018 BMW i5 car will also come with floating roof and bonnet vent. Besides, this car will also get blanked off kidney grille and probably two tone colors. From the pictures that have been going around, it is clear that the SUV will have angular edges that go well with dynamic city style.
Engine, Electric Range Specifications
Just like the interior and exterior design, the powertrain in BMW i5 is still very mysterious. However, we can expect the electric engine to keep the car running up to 200 miles. It is rumored that this vehicle is going to be fully electric.
However, looking at the sales of full-electric BMW i3, it is still possible the company will think twice about this and give this hybrid car engine like i8.
BMW i5 Price and Release Date
It seems like the company is still being very secretive about New BMW i5 SUV. Therefore, we still cannot get the details of the features as well as the price approximation. However, it seems like the price range for i5 will be between i3 and i8. Even though we still have to wait for further updates about the specifications, there is one thing that we can be sure about. The car is currently in development, and it will be ready to be launched to the market at early 2018. It is also possible that the final product can be introduced in 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.
