BMW at the 13th Beijing International Automotive Exhibition 2014

BMW X4

Munich - With several Asian and Chinese premieres, BMW is using this year’s Beijing International Automotive Exhibition from 20 to 29 April 2014 to present an array of compelling production models which are geared to meeting present-day customer requirements and in some cases usher in all-new market segments.

The BMW X4 marks the introduction of a new vehicle segment in the premium mid-range that combines hallmark features of the BMW X models with the sporting elegance of a classical coupe and room for five people.

   

The new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer ushers in a whole new class of car, combining comfort and functionality of space with the hallmark BMW strengths of dynamism, style and elegance in the premium compact class. The BMW 2 Series Active Tourer follows in the tyre tracks of the Coupe as the second member of the new BMW 2 Series line-up and impresses from every angle with its sporty presence and harmonious proportions.

 

 

The BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe is a new yardstick for elegance and extravagance. With its premium mid-size four-door Coupe, BMW demonstrates its commitment to expanding its model range. Following the BMW 4 Series Coupe, the Gran Coupe is the third member of the new BMW 4 Series family and – with its well-balanced proportions – is longer, wider and more dynamic than any mid-size model series before it.

The BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe merges the stylistic qualities of the two-door Coupe with the functionality of four doors and generous levels of space behind the high-opening tailgate. Five punchy, refined and economical engines will be available from launch, developing outputs ranging from 105 kW/143 hp in the BMW 418d Gran Coupe to 225 kW/306 hp in the BMW 435i Gran Coupe.

 

The BMW 2 Series Coupe can be distinguished from the BMW 1 Series line-up by its standalone design, significantly larger dimensions, an engine range and suspension set-up geared squarely to sports performance, and more extensive standard equipment. The four-seater BMW 2 Series Coupe, with its two-door body, brings hallmark elements of BMW Coupes to the compact segment. Sophisticated suspension technology, virtually 50:50 weight distribution and rear-wheel drive ensure the presence of signature BMW handling properties.

BMW M3 Sedan, BMW M4 Coupe: innovative engine technology and a commitment to lightweight design. With the new BMW M3 Sedan and the new BMW M4 Coupe, BMW M GmbH showcases its new take on the high-performance sports car. The all-new, high-revving, six-cylinder in-line engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology delivers maximum output of 317 kW (431 hp) and peak torque of 550 Newton metres (406 lb-ft), the latter figure exceeding that of the previous BMW M3 by almost 40 per cent. Fuel consumption and emissions have been cut by around 25 per cent. Both the BMW M3 Sedan and BMW M4 Coupe (with optional seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission) cover the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds.

BMW 7 Series Horse Edition

BMW 7 Series Horse Edition is exclusive, luxurious, distinctive. The luxurious and dynamic BMW 7 Series Horse Edition makes its appearance on the Chinese market in the newly welcomed Year of the Horse. The long-wheelbase version of this luxury Sedan comes with exclusive BMW Individual paint finishes and sporty M equipment packages augmented by high-class interior details.

BMW i market launch in China. With the joint presentation of its first volume-produced vehicle powered purely by an electric drive system and a sports car currently holding the status of the world’s most progressive, the BMW i brand is highlighting the broad spread of its future-oriented vehicle concepts. The two models represent a new, strongly sustainability-focused interpretation of the premium experience. The electric motors and lithium-ion high-voltage batteries of the two models were developed by the BMW Group – in model-specific versions. Another special ingredient conceived exclusively for BMW i is the LifeDrive architecture with passenger cell made from carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP), which plays a major role in minimising the weight of the cars. And a world first in a series-produced car comes in the form of the optional laser headlights available for the BMW i8. Developed by BMW, they offer three times the intensity and twice the high-beam range of conventional systems, as well as extremely low energy consumption.
