BMW introduces the X4 Concept at the Shanghai Motor Show later this month. BMW X4 Concept allows to glance to the future. The new concept of the Sports Activity Coupe model from BMW is urged to continue traditions of success of BMW X6 in a new class of cars. The X4 will probably have around 500 liters of space. The car will share engines with the X3, which means a 181bhp 2.0-litre diesel in the X4 20d, a 254bhp 3.0-litre straight-six in the X4 30d and a flagship using the same engine but producing 309bhp. The first serial BMW X4 car leaves from the conveyor in 2014. It will be issued at BMW plant in Spartanburg, the USA on which BMWS X5, BMW X6 and BMW X3 are made. Sports character of BMW Concept X4 is emphasized not only in prompt lines and car proportions, but also body dimensions – 4648 mm in length, 1915 mm in width and 1622 mm in height. At the first view of the new car at once it is visible that it is BMW: the recognizable double front grille and dual round forward headlights don’t allow to confuse this brand with any another.

BMW has unveiled its third concept, the i8 Spyder. Based on the i8 coupe that debuted last year alongside the i3 city car, the i8 Spyder is at once an obvious followup, but also appears to be a couple of steps closer to the production models that will eventually go on sale to the public. Like the coupe, the i8 Spyder is a plug-in through-the-road hybrid with a 96 kW (131 horsepower) electric motor up front powering the front axle and a mid-mounted turbocharged three-cylinder gas engine (presumably with a displacement of 1.5 liters like the coupe) producing 223 hp that powers the rear.
German carmaker BMW has presented two new models to launch its electric motoring division BMWi, i3 and i8 eco-friendly cars. The i3 is an all-electric small city car, while the i8, a powerful sports car, combines an electric motor with a three-cylinder combustion engine.
