BMW Confirms X3 M And X4 M Under Development

Written By:

The time may be drawing near for two new M models, the X3 M and the X4 M, to be added to BMW's already extensive M line up. These vehicles could be developed post the launch of the upcoming 2016 M2, according to BMW M chief Frank van Meel, who spoke to Topspeed at the 2015 Detroit Motor Show.

Van Meel said there could be "a business opportunity with the X3/X4", but rejected the possibility of a future M7 or an M3 Touring, saying it wouldn't make sense to give every BMW the M treatment.

He also said that all-wheel-drive would eventually be available on M models, however, with a rear bias. "The philosophy will remain rear-wheel drive, even if there is all-wheel drive."

Van Meel continued about the future of M products, saying the division is studying the feasibility of electrification of the M range, with components like electric turbochargers to improve throttle response.
