2024 BMW M5 Plug-in Hybrid Testing and Exhaust Sound
Prepare yourself to spot more M-series prototypes adorned with “hybrid test vehicle” labels, as the M2 G87’s October debut marks Bavaria’s ultimate performance model without electrification. From that point forward, all models will incorporate electrification in some manner. BMW M workshop supervisor Hans Rahn divulged to Australian publication Which Car earlier this month that the forthcoming M5 would feature a plug-in hybrid powertrain.
Moreover, Rahn revealed the preservation of the V8 engine, likely alluding to the newly unveiled twin-turbo 4.4-liter powerhouse, known as the “S68” codename. In the meantime, our undercover sleuths had a close encounter with an M5 prototype, which didn’t showcase all the final production body components. The robust wheel arches appeared temporarily attached, not exhibiting their ultimate design. Nevertheless, they signify a substantial increase in width for the M edition, setting it apart from the standard 5 Series.
