Rear looks somewhat like s class, sloping down

Not sure if I like it yet, moving towards luxury more and more

It looks like there’s a cover over where the Hoffmeister Kink would be. If you look at the outline underneath it looks like the kink could be gone

It will probably be similar to the 3er/X2 where the piece is separated from the door based on the window cut lines.

In all likelihood, yes. It cannot be said for certain yet, but at this point we could expect a lineup very similar to the G70 7 Series which will precede the G60 5 Series by one year - heavy on EV and PHEV, light on gas and diesel.

Might be a stupid question but just clarifying because the way I've seen some articles worded makes it seem like there will only be fully electric and hybrid models for the 5.
At this early date it is best to ignore language used by the media that implies certainty about the model lineup. We don't know yet, and they don't know yet either.

What we do know is that BMW will continue to sell combustion vehicles into next decade. As we move past 2025 and on toward 2030, we will see the majority of those become PHEV. Furthermore, we'll see their share of BMW's sales decrease steadily in favor of BEV.

thats how it used to be, if you havent noticed they changed the chassis strategy. which is why every M model is an x8x and every touring has a 1 at the end. every coupe has a 2 at the end and every sedan has a 0 at the end.

Though I agree the front overhangs have been slowly growing for years now and will only continue as the need for gigantic engine space decreases with the shift to electric

I think I'm going to miss the G30 5 series, it's done perfectly.

Genuinely.

The last gen of chassis, from F80/82, F87, F90, and G30 — some of the most balanced looking, and simultaneously classy and aggressive bimmers yet, probably the best gen since the late 90s chassis imo. Great looking cars.

I'm not a hater of the new gen as much as others are, but they definitely aren't improvements.

Particularly sucks because they may well be the end of the ICE era, on a down note.

Really happy i bought. Will try and keep this G30 LCI in peak condition so its still peak form in a decade.

I, as I imagine many around here, will not go easy into that good night. Genuinely want to stick ICE until it's no longer a viable option. EVs so muted, sterile, and lifeless. Even with performance versions they just dont feel alive.

I agree, love the f90 and will jt be easy for me to transition to worse design+EV from this magnificent combo of ice+design. I think I will hang on until it's not possible or maybe synthetic fuel comes to market to keep ICE alive.

Holding out hope, that maybe we get one final hurrah, and BMW taps back into the more classic styling for their last few years of ICE production.

Hold out for 7 or so years, and maybe they'll give the life long bimmer people what they want for the last gen of ICEs in the late 2020s

I'm hoping synthetic fuels will come into play I just can't beleive ICE is going to go away completely with no type of fuel technology to keep it going. I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens.

This can go either way: it's either going to be awesome or it's going to be really awkward looking. The last time I felt this way is when Mercedes went from the bulky and cool 1999-2002 CLK 430/55 to the crap, feminine 2003 - 2008 CLK 500.

I'm scared.
