Gasoline-powered BMW X4 may die after this generation
Blog BMW many words contacted insiders for details on the next-generation gas-powered BMW X4 and heard there might not be one. One longtime insider on Bimmerpost reported the same news, that the model codenamed G46 “might have been cancelled.” And check Automotive News future product pipeline returns this, “Production of the US-made model may end by the end of 2025 with no planned replacement, according to AutoForecast Solutions.”
Supposedly, the original plan was for seashells intersection to mimic the split headed for the 3 Series lineup, with the ICE-powered 3 Series based on the evolution of BMW’s Cluster Architecture (CLAR) and 3’er all-electric variants on the architecture. The upcoming Neue Klasse architecture is developed for electric vehicles only. For the 3 Series, the electric sedan could come back to life i3 As the name suggests, the electric crossover will be the iX3.
The IX4 is still on the right track. Blog BMW Still, doubt the automaker’s accountants can’t justify spending on a new version of the gasoline-powered X4. BILLIONThe raw sales data we found was not sufficient to make a judgment. X4 sales have increased in the states, reaching 10,620 units in the US last year, and 33% more than in Europe. The X3 sold about 156,000 units in the US and Europe last year compared to about 26,000 units for the X4. At the beginning of this year, we heard that BMW may scrap the 4 Series and 8 Series for the regenerated 6 Series product line. So in addition to the huge costs of electrification forcing cruel decisions, there are clearly bigger ideas.
The first Neue Klasse model will launch in 2025, said to be the new i3 and iX3. IX4 is predicted next year. They will take advantage of BMW’s Gen6 the battery with cylindrical cells that are less expensive to manufacture and produce less carbon emissions during production, increasing the vehicle’s range by 30% compared to current BMW prismatic cells, reducing weight by up to 20% and increasing the charging speed to 270 kW.
If source supplier spoke to Inside EVs Believe it or not, we won’t need to wait until 2025 for more big X4 news. The supplier said it will supply parts for two new electric crossovers with four-engine setups. One is an iX3, the other is an iX4, the supplier added that “other code markings” suggest this could be a proper M version of the standard electric crossovers. The curious and the curious.
