- BMW is gearing up to launch an electric variant of the popular 5 Series.
- The automaker anticipates that this electric model will account for half of the 5 Series’ sales in Europe.
Well, folks, in another episode of “how we’re gonna zap the gas guzzlers out of existence,” BMW is throwing its weight behind an all-electric 5 Series. They say romance is dead, but who needs candlelit dinners when you can have the silent hum of a battery-powered Beemer whisking you off into the sunset?
Now, don’t get me wrong. I love a good V8 and the angry growl that comes with it as much as the next car-nivore. But watching perennial gasoline-junkies like BMW switch the script like this really gets my electrons jiggling. It’s like your hamburger-loving grandpa suddenly going vegan and posting recipe videos on TikTok.
Ladies and gents, fasten your seatbelts. The electric era is shifting gears, and it seems BMW is trying to get the early bird infotainment system upgrade. So, grab your reusable coffee cup, buckle up in your sustainable, faux-leather seats and let’s usher in half a future’s worth of European sales!
