Confirmed: BMW Is Working On An All-New M5 Touring (And It's Electrified)

BMW has confirmed that aside from the high-performance M5 sedan, they are also working on adding a wagon variant, the M5 Touring, to the model range as well.

Just like the future all-new BMW M5 Sedan, the Touring variant will also feature a completely new partially electrified drive system. It will also have a tuned chassis featuring innovative systems that will offer unique levels of driving dynamics and agility.

For almost 40 years now, the BMW M5 has been the benchmark for driving dynamics, agility, and precision in the high-performance sedan segment. Evolutionary progress, development know-how from racing and pioneering innovations in the areas of drive, suspension, aerodynamics, and lightweight construction have shaped the history of the BMW M5.

Engines with six, eight and ten cylinders, M TwinPower Turbo technology and high-revving characteristics, the compound brake system with M Carbon ceramic brakes and M xDrive four-wheel drive are just some of the technological milestones with which this model has repeatedly redefined top performance in a sedan that is unconditionally suitable for everyday use.

The seventh generation of the BMW M5 takes up on this – with innovations that promise an even more intense performance experience.

The first BMW M5 Touring was launched back in 1992 based on the second-generation BMW M5 Sedan and has since stood for a combination of high performance and everyday practicality on four wheels. In 2007, BMW M GmbH also added a Touring variant to the fourth-generation BMW M5. And currently, the successful launch of the first BMW M3 Competition Touring (available in the Philippines for P 10.490 million) also underscores the high appeal of this vehicle concept in the premium midrange segment of high-performance cars.

Testing of the first prototypes of the new BMW M5 Touring is to commence in the next few days in urban traffic as well as on country roads and motorways around Munich and at the BMW M GmbH headquarters in Garching. The integrated application of all drive and suspension systems will then also be carried out for the new BMW M5 Touring on the Nürburgring's Nordschleife, among other places, with the aim of ensuring the ideal balance of sporting performance on the racetrack and superior ride comfort in everyday driving and over long distances.
