BMW working on next-gen 5-series range

BMW has begun work on the seventh generation 5-series range and plans to put the new models on sale globally by the end of 2016.

BMW has begun work on the seventh generation 5-series range and plans to put the new models on sale globally by the end of 2016.

The mid-range model will be redesigned with a new platform, a wider choice of petrol, diesel and hybrid powerplants and new 48-volt electrical architecture.

BMW bosses say the new 5-series will adopt a sleeker appearance than today's model.

As with today's hugely successful sixth-gen model, BMW is readying the new 5-series in saloon, Touring and GT body styles.

The new car's platform is known under the internal codename OKL and has been conceived to underpin all high-end BMW models that use a longitudinally mounted engine, including future 5, 6 and 7-series models.
