Autocar Reveals First Expectation of BMW 8th Generation 5 Series
The seventh-generation BMW 5 series will end its seven-year career and exit in mid-2023. Subsequent models will change dramatically in technical and design according to BMW’s electric vehicle plan. Rendering, which measures the 8th generation BMW 5 series, was published in the September issue of the monthly “Autoka Korea.”
The biggest change is that pure internal combustion engine engines, hybrids, and fully powered powertrains in X3 and 4 series sedan models are given options. BMW plans to sell 7 million plug-in hybrids and pure electric vehicles by 2030.
BMW Group is planning to release 12 full electric vehicles worldwide, including the X1 crossover and the 7 series EV version (see separate story) by the time the new 5 series is released in 2023. The fully powered version of the 3 series is being prepared as the brother model of the i4.
The next 5 series, with a sharper front-end design and a more cheerful curved loop than the previous model, uses the current BMW models i3, 1 series, 2 series Gran Coupe, and CLAR (Cluster Architecture) modules used by the 2 series Active Tourer.파워볼사이트
It is a module compatible with pure internal combustion engine engines, mild hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and pure electric powertrain. It also fits the rear wheel, and four-wheel drive layout. BMW’s CLAR platform can be said to be a diversity strategy for pure electric cars.
BMW is targeting Mercedes’ new EQS EV flagship model with a new generation 7 series of pure electricity that will be released in 2022. The new seven-series projections are also accurate, drawn by the famous “Autoka” art team.
The September issue of “Autoka Korea” will also reveal for the first time the second-generation Kia Niro projection, which changes to an unconventional design, and the electric Mercedes-Benz G-Class, or EQG projection. The second-generation Kia Niro is said to have been greatly influenced by the exotic Havana concept of 2019.
In addition, you can meet Hyundai’s first small SUV Bayon test-drive and the Mercedes-Benz EQS test-drive, which is equivalent to the S-class class.
Through an interview with designer Mark Richt, who is in charge of Audi design, we heard about the design direction of electric vehicles and the era of self-driving technology. It is also a book in the book that features a major article in the world’s best classic car magazine, Classic & Sports Cars.
