BMW has confirmed that a touring variant of the M5 is being developed, which will be revealed in 2024, featuring a completely new partially electrified drive system.

Testing of the first prototypes of the new BMW M5 Touring is to commence in the next few days in urban traffic, on country roads and highways around Munich and at the BMW M headquarters in Garching. Integrated application of all drive and suspension systems will then be carried out for the new BMW M5 Touring on the Nürburgring Nordschleife, among other places, to refine performance on the racetrack and to check comfort in everyday driving and over long distances.

Meanwhile real-world analysis of the M5 is also in motion, with test drives taking place on public roads, BMW Group proving grounds and race circuits worldwide.

“We are now also installing a hybrid drive system with typical M performance in other high-performance cars,” noted Dirk Häcker, head of development at BMW M.
