The reveal of the all-new, eighth generation of the BMW 5-Series is scheduled for 2023, but sightings of camouflaged prototypes of the premium sedan combined with reports from insider sources have painted a pretty clear picture of what to expect.

The new generation will be based on the CLAR platform and, true to the “Power of Choice” strategy of the Bavarian automaker, will be offered in petrol, diesel, plug-in hybrid, and fully electric variants, with the latter expected to adopt the i5 moniker.

The plug-in hybrid variants will combine the turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder with one or two electric motors, producing up to 500 hp (373 kW / 507 PS).

Finally, the first electrified full-blown M car that is set to replace the M5 will reportedly use a plug-in hybrid combining the twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 with electric motors, allowing for outputs close to 750 hp (559 kW / 760 PS) and supercar-rivaling acceleration figures.

The fully electric sedan will be a direct competitor to the Mercedes-Benz EQE that was unveiled recently in Munich, the upcoming Audi A6 e-tron, and the next-generation Tesla Model S.
