i5 M60 Touring EV Teased Ahead Of Its 2024 Spring Debut

January 30th, 2024 by

The standard BMW i5 was released in the winter of 2023. It was the first all-electric model of BMW’s five-series range, and unsurprisingly, it was met with excitement and awe. Yet the follow-up 2024 i5 M60 Touring, a new addition to the range, is quickly becoming a sensation, especially with it being teased recently to audiences that cannot wait to get their hands on one.

Our team at BMW of Schererville, Indiana, believes the i5 M60 Touring is an electric vehicle that will become popular, considering pre-launch orders suggest it’s more than a simple passing fancy. People want this car, and they want it now. Unfortunately, it’s unavailable until February 2024 but will hit dealerships in a few short weeks, so it’s a good idea to learn more about it.

What To Expect From The i5 M60 Touring EV

There is one major downside to the 2024 i5 M60 Touring’s release. The dealerships selling this model won’t be of the North American variety, as the car is currently set to be released only in Europe and Asia. Yet, this doesn’t mean you don’t need to learn more about it since many of the other all-electric i5 models will be released in the US and sold by dealerships like BMW of Schererville, Indiana.

Let’s have a look at what you should expect from this vehicle:

1. High-End Technology Features

It is believed that the new i5 M60 will include the latest famed tech and software BMW is renowned for equipping its vehicles with. The many high-tech features this vehicle will possess include a dual 12.3-inch display and infotainment center bound to provide hours of entertainment and Highway Assistant, which, when enabled, will let drivers enjoy a relaxed driving experience.

Interestingly, the Highway Assistant feature lets drivers remove their hands up to speeds of more than 100 miles an hour without fearing for their safety, which is something that impressed us at BMW of Schererville, Indiana. The i5 M60 Touring EV will also come equipped with Automatic Lane Change. This feature will let drivers change lanes seamlessly and effortlessly with a simple glance in their exterior mirror.

2. A Reworked Design

The i5 class is well known for its impressive appearance, but the latest i5 M60 Touring EV is something to behold. This electric car features a few distinctive aesthetic features that allow it to stand out, like its reworked rear tail light design, which is more traditional and angled than other models in the range.

What’s more, drivers will love the curved roofline, small rear spoiler that lends a sporty look to the car, and veered rear windows rounding out the angled look of sophistication.

3. Driving Range Of More Than 300 Miles

Many people hesitate to buy electric vehicles because they need to be charged and cannot drive very far. Although this is true for select EVs, it’s not the case with the new i5 M60 Touring EV.

This model is built on a powertrain identical to the i5 saloon, which utilizes an 81.2 kWh battery. This battery charges fast, performs efficiently, and provides more than 300 miles on one charge. It also packs a punch with a 340bhp and 295 lb-ft output. What more could you want in an EV?
