BMW has revealed its i Vision Dynamics concept at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. This curvy saloon previews a production electrical car called the i5– destined to be the third model in BMW’s electrical ‘i’ range after the i3 and i8. The production model is expected to arrive in 2021.
2021 BMW i5 Styling
The Vision Dynamics principle shown at Frankfurt is thought to look like the ended up i5. Its swoopy styling resembles BMW’s other Gran Coupes and it seems approximately the same size as the company’s 3 Series. There’s a full-length sunroof on the concept, just like the one on the X7 idea, and this would be an optional extra on the production model.
The headlights and brakelights will be reduced before it goes on sale, but are likely to remain a similar shape. We also expect BMW’s signature ‘kidney’ grilles to change prior to production– they’ll most likely be made smaller and more carefully resemble standard grilles.
2021 BMW i5 Interior
The interior is expected to borrow a lot of parts and the layout from the i3, with upgraded technology and perhaps a wider range of trim materials. It’s likely to continue the i3’s minimalist approach, with a small digital screen replacing traditional analogue dials and a second drifting screen to manage the infotainment and navigation. Headroom might not be as great as the boxier i3, although rear guests will take advantage of enhanced leg and shoulder room.
2021 BMW i5 Engines and Driving
In theory, the electrical i5’s range could be as much as 375 miles, but that figure will be tough to reproduce in the real life, with driving design, the environment and weather conditions having a huge influence on that total. BMW states the battery-electric powertrain is at the ‘next-level’ compared to the i3. It’s likewise thought that the car will be able to drive autonomously in some limited circumstances. In spite of the i5’s green credentials, it must have the ability to speed up from 0-62mph in four seconds– about as quick as the recently exposed Audi RS4– and on to a leading speed of 124mph.
2021 BMW i5 Price and Release Date
The production i5 is anticipated to be launched in 2021 and BMW is planning to have 12 completely electric models before 2025. The new model could cost from around ₤ 35,000 and rise up to around ₤ 50,000.
