BMW at the IAA Cars 2017 in Frankfurt - Highlights in brief

29.08.2017: Show premiere for the BMW Concept 8 Series. This enthralling design study, unveiled for the first time at the Concorso

Show premiere for the BMW Concept 8 Series.





This enthralling design study, unveiled for the first time at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, will now also whet the appetite of visitors to the IAA Cars 2017 show in Frankfurt ahead of the presentation of the new BMW 8 Series Coupe in 2018.



Supremely dynamic driving characteristics, exclusivity and modern luxury come together to create the traditional essence of a full-blooded BMW coupe.



 Dramatic exterior underlines the car’s highperformance character. Interior design exudes emotionally powerful interplay of sporting prowess and luxury.




Show premiere for the BMW Concept Z4.



First appearance of the “roadster reloaded” in Germany shortly after its world premiere at the Concours d’Elegance in Pebble Beach. Modern reinterpretation of a time-honoured concept in BMW’s distinctive style, updated for the present day.



Focussed proportions, set-back seating position and muscular wedge shape send a message of unadulterated driving pleasure. Design study offers clear pointers for the production model due in 2018.





World premiere of the new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo.




New version of the innovative vehicle concept first enshrined by the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo, with its unique combination of luxurious ride comfort, modern functionality and coupe-style lines. Reduced weight, enhanced driving dynamics and efficiency, unsurpassed sporting elegance, comfort and connectivity





World premiere of the new BMW X3.



Third generation of the premium mid-size Sports Activity Vehicle. Eye-catching exterior design, luxurious interior and innovative equipment features.



New BMW X3 sets a clearer benchmark than ever in terms of sporting agility and efficiency, underpinned by a vehicle weight significantly lower than that of the predecessor model and a lower drag coefficient (Cd 0.29) than any other car in its segment.



World premiere of the new BMW i3





(combined fuel consumption: 0.0 l/100 km; combined electric power consumption: 13.6 – 13.1 kWh/100 km; combined CO2 emissions from petrol: 0 g/km) and new BMW i3s (combined fuel consumption: 0.0 l/100 km;combined electric power consumption: 14.3 kWh/100 km; combined CO2 emissions from petrol: 0 g/km).




Striking design features and a second, extremely powerful model variant underscore the sporting character of the world’s most successful electric vehicle in the premium compact segment.



Innovative chassis systems deliver even greater driving pleasure to go with locally emission-free mobility. Unrivalled connectivity technology with features including BMW Connected and the BMW Digital Charging Service.






Premiere of the new BMW M5.




New version of the high-performance sedan, featuring the M xDrive all-wheeldrive system for the first time.



Perfectly tailored overall package of powertrain, suspension technology and aerodynamic balance, in hallmark M style. Intelligent lightweight design elements include a carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) roof. Weighs less than its predecessor, despite all-wheel drive.





World premiere of the new BMW M8 GTE.





Racing car newly developed from the ground up and fully approved for international GT racing ahead of the market launch of the new BMW 8 Series. Innovative technology in the areas of powertrain, chassis, lightweight design and aerodynamics.



Experience from the car’s first races will be channelled into the series development of the new BMW 8 Series Coupe and new BMW M8. The design of the BMW M8 GTE also reveals its close relationship with the BMW 8 Series Coupe and BMW M8.




World premiere of the BMW 7 Series Edition 40 Jahre.





Special-edition variant of the luxury sedan highlights traditional blend of innovation and exclusivity. Bold paint finishes. Exclusive interior design.



Anniversary edition available in a limited production run and with the full selection of drive system variants.



Connectivity:
BMW Connected links the car with the user’s digital lifestyle; seamlessly integrated and in tune with the individual needs and context of each user. Cross-platform, personalised services made possible by the Open Mobility Cloud. BMW ID – portable, digital customer profile serves as the basis for digital services. New, highly personalised services introduced through BMW Connected+. BMW Connected has notched up more than a million users worldwide since June 2017.




A vision of the future: BMW Group is committed to expanding its development expertise in the field of automated and autonomous driving.




Stake in the navigation data company HERE. Cooperation with Intel (processors) and Mobileye (digital image processing). Campus Unterschleißheim starts work as a new development centre for automated driving. Test project exploring highly and fully automated driving launched with 40 BMW 7 Series cars.





Germany premiere for the BMW Motorrad Concept Link.





Trailblazing design study with numerous conceptional and technological innovations for the urban single-track mobility of the future. Electric drive system enables a new kind of segment-defining vehicle architecture. BMW Motorrad Concept Link uses digital connectivity to become a means of transport and communications device in one.



The fuel consumption and CO2 emissions figures shown were determined according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers the different size of the selected wheels and tyres.



The CO2 efficiency specifications are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the Pkw-EnVKV, and based (for classification) on the fuel consumption and CO2 values as per the NEDC cycle.



Further information on official fuel consumption figures, specific CO2 emission values and the electric power consumption of new passenger cars is included in the following guideline: “Leitfaden über Kraftstoffverbrauch, die CO2 emissions und den Stromverbrauch neuer Personenkraftwagen” (Guideline for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and electric power consumption of new passenger cars), which can be obtained from all dealerships, from Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT), Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen and at http://www.dat.de/en/offers/publications/guideline-for-fuel-consumption.html.
