2025 BMW M5 Hybrid Redesign

The M5’s front bumper is a redesign with larger intakes and a large kidney grille. While the model will get a bulged bonnet and the aggressive headlights that extend towards the front fenders with LED graphics, the production-spec LED graphics are still not available.

The prototype features wider front and back fenders that cover the tracks. Side-sill extensions are also included. Black five-spoke wheels conceal large-diameter perforated disk brakes. The adaptive suspension version makes it sit closer to the ground. The rear features a lip spoiler, quad exhaust pipes, and quad exhaust pipes that are a hint at a full-blown M Model. This characteristic appears to have been preserved despite electrification.

Engine

The prototype’s hybrid stickers confirm the rumors of electrification for the M5. It could use a similar powertrain to the upcoming BMW XM. It could be equipped with a twin-turbo V8 or an electric motor. The SUV will produce 750 horsepower (559 kW/ 760 PS) as well as 737 lbft (999 Nm). This would make the SUV significantly more powerful than the 627 hp (468 kW / 636PS) non-hybrid BMW M5 CS, which was revealed in 2021 as the M5’s most powerful yet. A fully electric M5 hybrid is also being rumored to have a tri-motor powertrain and a higher output of 800 hp (597kW / 811 PS).
