On the opening day of the Bangkok Motor Show on March 25th, we learned that the BMW i5 has welcomed its facelift, and a new model named M Sport Inspiring has been added to the original sub-models, positioned as the entry-level sub-model. So far, there are three sub-models of the BMW i5 in the Thai market. Let's take a look together.


Official guide price of the 2024 BMW i5:

-i5 eDrive40 M Sport Inspiring: 4599000 Thai baht

-i5 eDrive40 M Sport: 4999000 Thai baht

-i5 M60 xDrive: 5599000 Thai baht


At the same time, when purchasing the new BMW i5, you can enjoy some car purchase rights and interests, including 4 years of free maintenance service, and a warranty of 8 years or 160,000 kilometers for high-voltage batteries and equipment.



The overall design of the new model has not changed much. Although it is a 100% electrically driven car, you can see that BMW still gives it the classic family-style grille design and even the vertical chrome decoration line in the grille is retained. It looks very similar to the traditional air intake grille from a distance. The design style of the BMW i5 is inherited from the BMW 5 series, and at the same time, we can easily distinguish its purely electric identity through the i5 logo at the front and back of the car.


The size of the BMW i5 is 5060x1900x1515mm, and the wheelbase is 2995mm with a minimum ground clearance of 154mm.






The interior design of the i5 does not seek to be special, and it is highly consistent with the BMW 5 Series. The dual-screen design brings a stronger sense of technology, and the traditional detail design elements of BMW are also retained. For example, the central control screen will tilt towards the driver's side. However, overall, the interior of the BMW i5 does not prominently display its identity as a pure electric vehicle.


In terms of power, the eDrive40 model is equipped with a single motor, using rear-wheel drive. The maximum power of the motor is 340PS, and the peak torque is 400N·m. The model is equipped with a battery with a capacity of 81.2kWh, and the WLTP pure electric cruising range is 582km. The maximum power of the system's AC charging is 11kW, and the maximum power of DC fast charging can reach 205kW. In addition, the 0-100km/h acceleration requires within 6 seconds. The M60 xDrive model is equipped with front and rear dual motors and adopts a four-wheel drive method. The maximum power of the front motor is 261PS, and the peak torque is 365N·m. The maximum power of the rear motor is 340PS, and the peak torque is 430N·m. The total power of the power system has reached 601PS, and the peak torque has reached 795N·m, so its 0-100km/h acceleration only takes 3.8 seconds. In terms of the battery, the power battery used by the M60 xDrive is the same as the eDrive40, but because it is four-wheel drive, its WLTP pure electric cruising range is 516km.



Now let's look at the configuration performance of the new BMW i5. From the positioning of the sub-model, the eDrive40 M Sport Inspiring model is the lowest configuration, and its basic configuration is as follows:

-19 inch dual color gray alloy wheels

-M sport suspension
