Cold-Weather Testing is being Conducted on the 2025 BMW M5 and M5 Touring

Cold-weather testing is being conducted at Arjeplog, Sweden, for the 2025 BMW M5 sedan and M5 Touring wagon.

Seventh-generation M5 prototypes were driven 1,491 miles from Munich to Arjeplog by engineers.

While low temperatures tested reliability, the snowy roads leading to Arjeplog provided engineers with an opportunity to evaluate the M5’s handling in less-than-ideal conditions. Before putting the prototypes on test tracks, engineers at BMW’s testing facility in Arjeplog tried a cold start at -22 degrees F.

The BMW M Hybrid V8 GTP race car’s hybrid drivetrain will be stuffed into the newest BMW 5-Series body shell for the next-generation M5. That probably suggests an electric motor is helping the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 engine. Regulations limiting road-vehicle powertrains to 670 horsepower do not apply to the race car. Expect the M5 to easily reach 700 horsepower when it is routed to all four wheels.

Additionally, BMW has confirmed that the M5 Touring will make its debut in the United States. Arriving shortly after the Audi RS 6 Avant makes its debut later this year, it will probably be the sole 5-Series wagon model offered in the United States. Cars will be arriving shortly after production starts in the fourth quarter. Perhaps the M5 sedan will show up a little early.

The M5 Touring and sedan, which are scheduled to launch as 2025 models, are projected to retail for six figures.
