About BMW Electric & Hybrid 5 Series

BMW Electric and Hybrid 5 Series Cars Image 1

Dating back to 1972, the BMW 5 Series has been at the forefront of BMW design and innovation for over 50 years. Available as a business Saloon or Touring, the 5 Series has wide appeal and is the marque’s second best-selling model after the iconic 3 Series.

As well as petrol, diesel, and mild-hybrid models, the 5 Series has moved with the times offering both plug-in hybrid and fully electric models. The eighth generation revolutionised the 5 Series again, with the launch of the i5 in 2023 giving consumers the chance to buy a fully-electric 5 Series model for the first time.

Why Buy a Used BMW Electric & Hybrid 5 Series?

The recently launched 550e xDrive plug-in hybrid fully supports the marque’s aim of greener travel with a purely electric range of around 56 miles (WLTP). A combustion engine seamlessly combines with the BMW e-Drive motor to deliver 0-62 mph in just 4.3 seconds as well as a capped top speed of 155 mph. 

The BMW 530e plug-in hybrid is also an exciting choice, offering a system output of 299PS and 450Nm. It completes the 0-62mph sprint in the fractionally slower time of 6.3 seconds and offers a slightly longer electric only range. Both models feature the latest BMW eDrive technology specifically tailored to eco-friendly driving. This is combined with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine in the 530e and a 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder petrol engine in the 550e xDrive.

As for the BMW i5, this comes with an entry-level eDrive40 powertrain complete with an 81.2 kWh battery and a single electric motor. It can race from 0-62 mph in just six seconds. Above that is the M60 xDrive. This slashes the 0-62 mph sprint time to just 3.8 seconds and offers up to 315 miles (WLTP) of electric only power.

And it’s not just the speed that’ll get your heart racing. Both the hybrid and electric range from the 5 Series oozes luxury and charm. While the Iconic Glow of the kidney grille gives the exterior a unique radiance and the panoramic glass sunroof floods the cabin with light, the interior is a comfortable and technology-enhanced masterpiece. Step inside and discover a wide range of features from the optional Bower & Wilkins Surround System to AirConsole games that can be played on the huge curved display.

As an M model, the i5 M60 xDrive boasts additional style features such as M brakes, M rear spoiler, M carbon exterior mirror caps and more.

Tips & Advice for Buying a Used BMW Electric & Hybrid 5 Series

With combustion engines set to be phased out, making the switch to an electrified vehicle now is a good idea.

BMW’s expertise and extensive research in the EV sector makes them a reliable marque for anyone looking to go electric for the first time. Or for those looking for upgraded, high-performance models.

Both plug-in vehicles and fully-electric cars need to be plugged in to charge the battery. The difference between plug-in and fully-electric is that the former have combustion engines to fall back on when battery power is low. Zero-emission vehicles run purely on electric power, so the battery must have enough charge to be used, and recharged when low. 

There are various charging options available from slower home charging which can benefit from off-peak energy charges to rapid charging options. Charging times depend on the vehicle model and charger used, with the i5 eDrive40 achieving 60 miles of range in just 1 hour 20 minutes with a 7.4kW home wallbox charger.

When buying an Approved Used BMW 5 Series Hybrid, it’s also important to check the specifications of each model. This will detail paint colour, year of launch, mileage, and engine size as well as any adaptations by previous owners, added packages or special features unique to the model.

Many of the cars available from Dick Lovett BMW have low mileage.
