I agree that S68 is pretty much guaranteed, but S58 is a plenty suitable option if given sufficient electric power. But yes BMW doesn't seem to be going that route.

The upcoming C63 is going to be a 4-cylinder PHEV, and the next E63 might do the same.

I'm surprised S68 PHEV is able to meet future Euro regulations. Personally, I'd actually prefer an electrified S58 in the M5. It'd help offset some of the weight gain, be plenty powerful, and I'm partial to BMW's I6s.

I see a lot of E39 which is great. Other angles I see a lot of MB as well so that's a concern.

What would be interesting is if they are able to keep interior dimensions the same (no one needs more room inside a 5-series) but manage to reduce the car overall length and width, and can reduce weight as well.
