New BMW i5 Touring hits showrooms this month


The new all-electric BMW i5 Touring estate arrives in the showrooms this month. BMW’s first all-electric estate car offers a range of  up to 350 miles (WLTP) and fast DC charging at up to 205kW. This means it takes around 10 minutes to add 100 miles to the range of the BMW i5 eDrive40 Touring.

The fully electric variants of the new BMW 5-Series Touring are among the first BMW vehicles to feature the Plug & Charge Multi Contract. This makes charging at compatible public charging points more convenient, doing away with the need for digital authentication via app or charging card. In addition, the BMW i5 Touring and plug-in hybrids now come with the Connected Home Charging Package, offering lower-cost charging at home.

Further elements are the fully vegan leather-look interior, which comes as standard, and materials that incorporate varying degrees of recyclables. The upper material of the floor covering and design covers in the engine bay, for example, are made of 100% recycled materials, such as old fishing nets.

The new BMW i5 Touring offers plenty of space for passengers and luggage. The front seats are far more spacious than before, especially around the shoulders, and rear-seat passengers have greater leg, shoulder and elbow space than on previous 5-series Touring models.
