BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe is a new benchmark for elegance and extravagance. Following on from its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show, the new BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe is now making its debut appearance in the USA at the New York International Auto Show. Built in the mould of the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe, its arrival sees BMW add a further scintillating premium mid-size model to its 4 Series range. The new four-door coupe succeeds in melding the visual charm of the two-door coupe with the functional benefits offered by two extra doors, a wide-opening tailgate and the abundant space found within. At the same time, the principal dimensions and dynamic performance abilities are unchanged compared to the two-door coupe. The elongated roofline neatly brings out both the elegance and the extravagance of the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe. It is being launched with a choice of two highly refined and fuel-efficient engines.
The new BMW X3 combines power, prestige and supreme everyday practicality . Another model being unveiled for the first time in the North American market is the new-generation BMW X3. Like the BMW X4, it is being built in Spartanburg, South Carolina. The previous version of the BMW X3 already made a name for itself thanks to its class-leading cabin and luggage compartment dimensions and superior versatility.
The BMW Concept X5 eDrive is a pioneering combination offering supremely efficient driving pleasure. The further refined BMW Concept X5 eDrive being exhibited at the New York Auto Show demonstrates the lengths that BMW is going to in an effort to reduce fuel consumption and emissions in the luxury Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) segment. The 180 kW/245 hp four-cylinder petrol engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology works in unison with a 70 kW/95 hp electric motor to enable the concept study to drive purely on electric power at speeds of up to 120 km/h (75 mph) with a maximum range of 30 kilometres (approx. 20 miles). The electric motor draws its power from a lithium-ion battery that can be charged from any domestic socket. Thanks to its plug-in hybrid drive concept, the BMW Concept X5 eDrive returns a highly impressive average fuel consumption of just 3.8 l/100 km (74.3 mpg imp) in the EU test cycle. The electrification of the powertrain under the umbrella of BMW eDrive enables BMW to unlock huge potential for reducing the fuel consumption and emissions of large models.
