Report: A BMW i5 is on the way…?

BMW enthusiast site, BMW Blog reports Munich’s i brand will be unveiling a new i5 in 2018.

Supposedly to be based on an extended 5-Series, the new i5 should gain a plug-in hybrid powertrain modeled after the one from the 5-Series GT hybrid concept.

To recap, that setup had a gas engine bolstered by two electric motors for a total output of 640hp. Obviously expect significantly less for the production version.
