2024 BMW i5 xDrive40 and 550e xDrive Coming To The US

The i5 xDrive40 has made its appearance on the 2024 model year pricing list, and as anticipated, it falls between the i5 eDrive40 and the i5 M60 xDrive. Priced at $69,800 (plus $995 for destination charges), the i5 xDrive40 comes in at $3,000 more than the rear-wheel-drive eDrive40, while still undercutting the sporty BMW i5 M60 by a significant $14,300. Although technical specifications for this all-weather electric sedan remain somewhat mysterious, they are likely to be similar to those of the i4 xDrive40.

It’s worth noting that the zero-emission Gran Coupe boasts a pair of electric motors generating a combined 396 horsepower and an instant torque of 443 pound-feet. It’s important to mention that both the i4 and i5 in the eDrive40 trim offer 335 hp, but the i4 eDrive40 delivers 317 lb-ft of torque, while the i5 eDrive40 offers only 295 lb-ft. It remains unclear whether there will be any differences in the case of the xDrive models.

In related news, the 550e xDrive also appears in the document as a plug-in hybrid model, a confirmation that was awaited for the US market until now. It carries a price tag of $73,800. Additionally, in the coming year, likely as a 2025 model year offering, the M5 Sedan is expected to make its debut as the flagship model, boasting over 700 horsepower from a plug-in hybrid setup based on the new twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 “S68” engine. While the M division has confirmed the return of the M5 Touring, it remains uncertain whether this high-performance wagon will be available in the United States.
