Like other high-end luxury car brands, BMW is seriously expanding its EV lineup with never-before-seen designs and futuristic car technology. We’ve seen the exhilarating i4 and i7, which are electrified versions of the latest 4-series Gran Coupe and 7-series, respectively. This time, the 5-series is BMW’s latest candidate as an all-new i5 was unveiled on the 24th day of May 2023 and will go into production as a 2024 model year electric vehicle. However, it will also be released along with a new generation of the traditional gas-powered 5-series slated for 2024. Like other BMW EV lease deals, the i5 is expected to deliver next-generation tech and exciting performance that stays true to the German Automaker’s reputation.

The i5’s interior is a place you’d want to spend time. It features a slew of glass controls, available genuine leather upholstery, and BMW’s new top-quality artificial leather upholstery dubbed Veganza. Like other BMW EVs, the i5’s dashboard houses a curved display panel integrating a 14.9-inch infotainment touchscreen with a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster.
