Thanks a lot! Good news then!

We europeans love the touring versions and the lack of a PHEV 5 series touring was really shame.

Do you have any info about release dates?

I agree. Very good news.
The choice between keeping my current 520d G31 or switching to a 520e G31 when my current lease expires in summer will be hard.

The name 520e possibly introduces a new drivetrain, the B48B16 1.6 i4 or a B38A15 1.5 i3?

I'm not sure if in your country there are tax benefits to going below 2.0 but I know in lots of Europe there is so perhaps this is to meet specific regulations?

I would assume it's the B38. The 20 designation usually indicates ~190 hp so maybe it'll be something like 100-110 hp petrol plus 80-90 hp electric. Which sound low for a heavy car like the 5 series...

I thought I read somewhere BMW was phasing out the B38 1.5 3cyl due to some undesirable characteristics.

Maybe ynguldyn would have more info

You were talking about G31 in Europe. My answer was in that context.

A bit of a rant but, I wish Alpina brought more of their lineup into the USA, we used to have the B6 and B7, but now the B6 is gone for us at least.

Remember that only M550d is available as a Touring with no M550i.

If you want a V8 you need to go G31 B5 which isn't a bad thing
