After unveiling the BMW i5 M60 in Frozen Deep Grey, BMW UK is now giving us a close look at another special paint: Tanzanite Blue Metallic. The beautiful and classy blue shade is featured here on the BMW i5 eDrive40. This business sedan not only boasts the M Sport package but also takes it up a notch with the M Sport Pro variant, further adorned with the extended Shadow Line features. These enhancements encompass various elements, such as blacked-out trim around the windows and kidney grilles.

Can Never Go Wrong With Tanzanite Blue

Pairing with the Tanzanite Blue Metallic are the 20-inch star-spoke 938 M Bicolor Jet Black wheels which fit the car perfectly. These wheels not only catch the eye but also reveal the red brake calipers of the M Sport brakes, a striking feature included in the comprehensive M Sport Pro package. If that’s not your cup of tea, BMW also offers calipers in blue and black.

Of course, if you want a different exterior color, BMW has you covered. You can spec your new G60 5 Series with timeless colors like Carbon Black, Black Sapphire, Phytonic Blue, Alpine White, and Mineral White. If you’re more adventurous,  you can go for Sophisto Grey and Oxide Grey. For a modern twist, enjoy the new Cape York Green and Brooklyn Grey. And if that’s still not enough for your unique taste, there are some matte finishes as well: Frozen Tanzanite Blue, Frozen Pure Grey, and Frozen Deep Grey.

Single Motor, But RWD Fun

While not as punchy as the i5 M60, the eDrive40 can deliver some unique driving dynamics, thanks to its single electric motor placed at the rear. This electric sedan delivers 335 horsepower and a torque of 295 lb-ft. For those moments when you crave an extra surge of power, the i5 eDrive40 doesn’t disappoint. Engage the Boost Mode, and you’ll experience an additional 26 horsepower, bringing the total to an impressive 317 HP. This feature, coupled with launch control, ensures that the i5 eDrive40 can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.7 seconds.

It also has a decent electric range: i5 eDrive40 offers 295 miles of electric range on the EPA standard or 356-mile range on the WLTP. BMW is also planning an xDrive version of the i5 eDrive40, but that will arrive at a later date.
