The BMW 5 Series is a mid-size luxury car manufactured by German automaker BMW since 1972. It is the successor to the 4-door sedan models of the BMW New Class and is currently in its seventh generation.
Initially, the 5 Series was only available in a sedan body style. The touring body style was added in 1991 and the 5-door hatchback ("Gran Touring") was added in 2009.
It is BMW's second best-selling model after the 3-Series and in 2010 produced about 50% of the BMW's profits.
On January 29, 2008, the 5 millionth 5 Series was manufactured, a 530d Saloon in Carbon Black Metallic.
The 5 Series got its name by being the fifth of the "new series" cars after the V-8 and Isetta era and was the replacement for the older four-door New Class sedans. The current BMW naming convention began with the first 5 Series.
Currently, seven main generations of BMW 5 Series have followed one another:
The E12, from 1972 to 1981
The E28, from 1981 to 1988
The E34, from 1988 to 1996
The E39, from 1996 to 2003
The E60, from 2004 to 2010
The F10/F11, from 2010 to 2016
The G30/G31/G32, from 2016
Most years have seen a Motorsport version of the 5 series, called the BMW M5.
