In more news, there’s a new BMW 5 series due next year. It’ll have more.

More volts (48)

More speeds (nine, but only on the automatic, otherwise you’re sticking with six. There aren’t actually any more gears in the box though, the elves within just do more clever things)

More turbos (one version of the 3.0 diesel will have four)

More lasers (for the headlights)

More electric range on the plug in hybrid (but only 30km/20 miles)
