BMW will be introducing its newest iteration of the 5 Series car later this month. Two new teasers provide a sneak glance at the electric i5, revealing its striking exterior and posh cabin. BMW's newest teaser film shows off the lighted kidney grille and interior illumination of the next BMW i5 EV. The teaser also provides a glimpse of the new EV's stylish interior and front profile design. The EV will have a lit kidney grille and slick LED headlights mounted high on the front. The whirring of an electric motor can be heard in each of the teaser clips. In 2013, BMW launched its first electric vehicle, the i3, which unfortunately didn't take off. In 2017, BMW gave EV another shot with the iX. Since then, BMW has released many all-electric cars and had success in the burgeoning EV industry, the latest being the i7, an electric version of the company's flagship sedan.
