2017 BMW i5


The third model of BMW's "i" range of green-themed vehicles. BMW has hinted persistently that all alphanumeric monikers up to i9 have been reserved, and that an i5 would fit into the lineup above the entry-level i3. It will be an eco-friendly electric family vehicle with plenty of space for five passengers, equipped with regular front-hinged rear doors to facilitate easy ingress and egress for the rear passengers.

We believe BMW will use a lot of hardware from the i3's "life module" and "drive module" architecture, but its styling will be sufficiently distinguished. Inside, the i5 will likely be a bit more conventional in style than the i3 with its provocative choice of shapes and materials.
