The Bavarian revolution

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 16, 2012

It appears that the automotive industry will witness the Bavarian revolution, as Bmw prepares to introduce new models, such as front-wheel drive vehicles, electric vehicle as well as new three-cylinder engines. Starting in 2013, we will see the first front-wheel drive models from Bmw, powered by three-cylinder engines and featuring carbon fiber bodywork. Moreover, the 3-Series lineup will receive new models such as the five-door GT, inspired by the 5-Series GT, but also the coupe and the convertible. The 6-Series Gran Coupe will receive a facelift in about two years. MINI, the brand owned by BMW AG, will also receive new models starting in 2013.

The MINI lineup will receive a new crossover model, inspired by the Paceman Concept, which will be a coupe version of the Countryman. Moreover, MINI models will also be restyled. By 2014, Bmw will introduce the 1-Series GT, based on the platform used by MINI, with front-wheel drive. A 1-Series Touring might also be introduced, as well as a small sport city bike in order to take on Smart’s eBike. Regarding the three-cylinder engines, AutoBild says that these powerplants will be seen on the small Bmw models but also in the upcoming i8 hybrid sports car, due in 2014. The i3 will be introduced in 2013 and this model will also receive a three-cylinder engine. The i sub-brand will be expanded with the i5 Van. The upcoming Bmw M3 will return in 2013 with a six-cylinder engine an three turbochargers.
