BMW has teased the upcoming M5 Sedan and M5 Touring through a series of videos. While sharing one of the teasers, the company revealed that the multi-year development of the cars is almost over. The hashtags BMW used in the caption hinted at the possibility of a hybrid drivetrain in these soon-to-be-launched performance vehicles. The latest teaser on YouTube and Instagram has unveiled a design sketch of the M5's front end for the first time. The sketch sheds light on the M-specific styling cues concealed in the camouflaged models. Instead of the triangular inlets seen on spied M5 prototypes, the side intakes are expected to be replaced with tall, narrow slits on either end of the front fascia. Moreover, the model in the video sports a unique carbon paint job. Read on to learn more about what more can we expect from the all-new BMW M5. 

2025 BMW M5: Design Details

The new M5, like the previous model, will have several new stylistic cues that will give it a sportier, more aggressive look than the standard 5-Series. The design sketches depict the new M5 with an enlarged kidney grille and a reworked bumper with a wider air inlet. A sportier diffuser is part of the redesigned bumper at the back end. We also get a peek at the sheet metal that covers the muscular rear fenders of the M5 Touring without the usual camouflage wrap. Additionally, a range of fresh colour schemes will be available.

2025 BMW M5: Powertrain Options

The M5 is one of the most iconic models ever developed by the brand's M division. The latest version of the car is anticipated to be propelled by a hybrid drivetrain similar to that of the XM SUV. The 4.4-litre V8 twin-turbo engine will be supported by an 18.6kWh battery pack and a single electric motor that is integrated into the eight-speed automatic transmission. It is estimated that the total output, distributed to all four wheels, will be 708bhp and 1,030Nm. According to industry reports, the new model will be the heaviest of all the M5 iterations, weighing in at 2,435 kg.

A previous teaser from BMW that followed the development of the M5 focused heavily on the advantages of the electronic all-wheel-drive system, emphasising how safe and quick it is in comparison to previous models. An M test driver hinted at the M5's adaptability when he characterised the chassis setup and general performance, calling it an "all-purpose tool on the motorway as well as on the racetrack, or simply going on holiday with the whole family."

2025 BMW M5: Launch Timeline

Since the new-gen BMW M5 has only been hinted at through a design sketch, there will likely be significant alterations made to the vehicle before it goes on sale. Although BMW has not yet announced any official release date, it indicated that the M5 Sedan and M5 Touring will be available soon. The M5 will be globally offered in sedan and wagon body styles. It will rival the Audi RS6 successor and Mercedes-AMG E63 S E-Performance. Notably, the Bavarian carmaker intends to roll out the M5 in India by late 2024 or early 2025.
