The German automaker has partnered with the video games platform AirConsole to offer owners (or their offspring) something a little more engaging to do while waiting at the local fast-charging station.
With safety in mind, the games are only available while the car is parked up, but both the driver and passenger can play single or multiplayer games using their smartphones as a controller (connected via QR code).
There’ll be 15 different games available initially, although given AirConsole has around 190 games in its stable at the moment, we can probably expect more to become available over time.
In addition to the gaming, the range-topper of the new 5 Series is a weapon on four wheels, with the i5 M60 xDrive that’s capable of delivering a whopping 593bhp with no less than 605lb-ft of torque. This power arrives via the 81.2kWh battery pack, translating to a 0-100 sprint time of 3.8 seconds and a limited top speed of 230 km/h.
