The BMW Concept Compact Sedan was unveiled today on the Guangzhou Auto Show, previewing the upcoming BMW 1-Series sedan. The sedan is especially developed for the Chinese car market where car buyers love premium sedans just a little less than they love premium SUV’s, and those they love a lot.
This is the new China-made BMW 2-Series Active Tourer. It will debut on the Guangzhou Auto Show later this month and launch on the Chinese car market in early 2016. The BMW 2-Series Active Tourer is manufactured by Brilliance-BMW, the joint venture that also makes the 3-Series L, the 5-Series L, and the BMW X1-Series.
The best Spy Shots so far of the all-new 2016 F48 BMW X1, the second generation of the successful BMW X1 SUV series. The 2016 BMW X1 will debut on the Frankfurt Auto Show in September. Most notable changes are: a new rounder front with a larger grille, new headlights, a new bonnet, new bumpers, new taillights, and an updated interior.
Their first car was the BMW X1-based Zinoro 1E EV, which is currently only available as a rental or lease car. The Concept Next will have an electric power train as well but details have not been disclosed. It appears to be a mid-sized SUV so it is possibly based on the BMW X3.

BMW is investing heavily into a raft of new models to dust rival Audi, but it won’t buy more shares in its Chinese joint venture partner Brilliance. This week in Munich, BMW’s CFO Friedrich Eichiner blew off a Bloomberg reporter who asked whether BMW would. “The market is regulated,” Eichinger snapped. “This question is not relevant, it is legally not possible.” Indeed, it is not. If you want to build cars in China, you need a Chinese joint venture partner who must own no less than 50 percent of the shares.
This system was put in place decades ago when China opened its doors to foreign automakers. The idea was that Chinese would learn on the job everything about developing, manufacturing, and selling cars. Once China was developed into an auto giant, one could dispose of the cumbersome laowei.
