When it comes to electric cars, BMW has proven its ability to produce exceptional and innovative models that continue to push the boundaries of what we expect from the automotive industry. Their latest car to grace the long and illustrious line of innovative vehicles is no exception.

This next step towards driving excellence comes in the form of the BMW i5. The details surrounding the new model were exclusively released to Auto Express, with the latest electrifying addition expected to ‘go head-to-head with Tesla’s forthcoming Model 3’. We are led to believe the BMW i5 has taken inspiration from 2016’s Vision Next 100 concept and will be fully battery powered unlike its older siblings, the BMW i3 and BMW i8.

Like all great revolutionaries, BMW refuse to rest on their laurels and look to make substantial progress in both autonomous and electric technologies, building on their already impressive reputation as one of the leaders in the industry. This ambition is bolstered by the announcement of BMW i5 and all its exciting features, with this model due to hit the market in 2021.
