BMW will showcase a number of new and yet-to-be unveiled models at the 2013 International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt am Main, taking place on September 12 to 22, 2013. The carmaker is set to unveil the all-new and innovative BMW i3, the first series-produced model from the BMW i brand. The BMW i3 features a passenger cell made from carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP), which when combined with the BMW eDrive technology, will allow the car to return zero-emission driving.

BMW will likewise unveil to the world its BMW 4 Series Coupe, a sporty, two-door model. The BMW 4 Series Coupe is a perfect amalgamation of the ultimate in aesthetic appeal and driving pleasure in the luxury mid-size segment.

BMW will also showcase in Frankfurt the third generation of BMW X5, the new BMW 5 Series models and new BMW X5 M50d, BMW M550d xDrive Sedan and BMW M550d xDrive Touring M Performance Automobiles. BMW will also showcase two concept studies to highlight its expertise and creativity in drive system technology and in its push into new vehicle segments.

One of the concepts, the BMW Concept X5 eDrive, merges the driving characteristics of a Sports Activity Vehicle with the efficiency of a plug-in hybrid drive system. The BMW Concept Active Tourer Outdoor, on the other hand, shows how a luxury compact model’s adaptability to the differing requirements of sports and leisure activities can be optimized through a well-devised use of space and clever detail solutions.

BMW will also showcase the latest innovations developed under the Efficient Dynamics banner as well as the new Original BMW Accessories and the recent additions to the BMW ConnectedDrive line-up. BMW is slated to show the variety of driver assistance systems and mobility services as well as depth of BMW i3 services developed to meet the demands of electric mobility and urban driving. BMW has also restructured its BMW ConnectedDrive range.
