Why the BMW i5 and 5 Series Touring Won’t Reach America

In a recent exclusive event, we got a first look at the upcoming BMW i5 Touring in Munich’s secret chamber. Oliver Munder, BMW 5 Series Product Manager, shared insights into the project. While we probed about the absence of a tailgate window, our focus quickly shifted: Will the 5 Series Touring or i5 Touring come to the U.S.?

Munder confirmed BMW’s stance that there will be no 5 Series Touring for the U.S. However, he hinted at something big for the American market. Speculation points to the BMW M5 Touring, supported by Domagoj Dukec’s brief affirmation.

Excitement mounts for the potential launch of the G99 BMW M5 Touring in the U.S. Yet, we question the absence of the 5 Series Touring or an i5 M60 Touring in the lineup, considering the popularity of sports wagons like the Audi A4 Allroad and Mercedes-Benz E450 All-Terrain Wagon.

Despite SUV dominance, the allure of the BMW M5 Touring persists, targeting passionate enthusiasts eagerly awaiting its debut. However, the lack of the M3 Touring may impact the excitement surrounding the M5 Touring’s arrival.
