New Delhi, June 9: BMW is reportedly planning to launch its new 2024 BMW 5 Series soon in India. The next-gen BMW 5 Series is expected to be a new iteration of a luxury mid-size saloon. BMW India is focusing on selling electric vehicles along with petrol and diesel-based variants; however, a report said that ICE variants would still have to reach the showrooms.

The BMW 5-series was revealed last year in the global market, according to a report by NDTV. The BMW car series was reportedly spotted in India with minimal camouflage recently, which could mean that the German automobile company would launch the next-gen 5 series in India soon. Maruti Suzuki Dream Series Limited Editions Including Alto K10, S Presso and Celerio Launched in India; Check Key Specifications and Details.
