The M5 will be based on the standard wheelbase 5 Series sold in Europe and the all-electric i5 in India. The new-gen internal combustion 5 Series is set to launch in India on July 24 with the model arriving in long-wheelbase form for the first time.
 

The new-gen BMW M5 is expected to feature a strong hybrid powertrain featuring the familiar 4.4-litre, turbocharged V8 petrol engine paired with an on-board battery pack and electric motors similar to the XM. On the BMW XM, the V8 engine produces 640 bhp and 738 Nm of peak torque, which is higher than the outgoing M5 CS, which churns out 625 bhp and 750 Nm. The motor will be paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission that sends power to all four wheels.
