July 2018
  • Funny enough, F94 X7M was (is?) under consideration.
  • G26 4GC will keep the hatchback.
  • I20 iNext will have at least two performance levels.
August 2018
  • EOP for F36 4GC has been moved to 06/21. This should be seen as evidence of the G26 4GC needing extra development time so it can become a more interesting (unusual?) car than its predecessor.
October 2018
  • The initial release of i4 will have an 80kWh battery and the choice of a single or dual motor drivetrain.
  • G80 M3 and G82 M4 Coupe currently have more variants than we're used to seeing. First of all, it appears the manuals are still alive. However, there are hints that these cars will be available as both RWD and xDrive. On top of that, there could be two different performance trims right out of the gate - you'll get a Competition model that's more different from the base M3/M4 than the old Competition Packages would provide.
  • On the other hand, G83 M4 Cabrio would have a more limited selection: a single model with the choice of transmission.
  • G42 will be produced from 08/21 to 03/29 and will possibly be made primarily or entirely in Mexico.
November 2018
  • BMW i4 is not going to be built from the ground up as a BEV. Instead, it will be one of the versions of G26, similar to the recently introduced iX3, though hopefully with better performance. It will start as a RWD or AWD with 80kWh battery. If you want a clean sheet BEV, you'll have to wait for the I20. How closely the iNext concept reflects that future production car remains to be seen. Both i4 and I20 should be expected around 2021. In other words, I can confirm the AutoExpress report here: https://www.autoexpress.co.uk/bmw/10...stream-in-2021
  • G42 is confirmed to be built in Mexico.
  • G09 X8 exists outside car journos' dreams.
  • The same i4 BEV drivetrain could also find its way into the Chinese 3er LWB (G28). I'm not seeing it in a regular G20 yet.
January 2019
  • There's still no hint of an electric G20. It is highly probable that G26 will be the BEV model for the world and G28 - for China.
  • And that also means that G26 will be a true mix of 3GT and 4GC: long wheel base with a more streamlined hatchback body (which we've all just seen for the first time).
  • Build details for G80 M3 (not all of this is new, but I'm listing all info here for better readability)
    • Starts production in 2020 (more likely later in the year).
    • Standard equipment for all models will include M diff, adaptive suspension, M seats, Live dashboard.
    • Optional equipment will be pretty much the same as the regular G20, with the notable additions of carbon ceramic brakes (possibly not available on base model), carbon bucket seats (likely not in the U.S.) and of course Merino leather, including full leather interiors.
March 2019
  • Potential models for G42 could include 220i, 220d, 220d xDrive, 230i, 230i xDrive, M240i, and M240i xDrive.
  • The next 5 series range currently consists of G60 sedan, G61 touring, and G68 LWB.
  • The next generation RR Ghost EWB will include an all-electric version.
  • The 48V system will expand to other models, possibly even F90. The next likely candidate for 48V is G01/G02.
  • First news about the next (G87) M2: production 12/2022-03/2029, likely in Mexico.
  • G01 X3 and G02 X4 will have their life extended to 10/24 and 06/25. It's possible Spartanburg will not be the primary production plant for their successors.
August 2019
  • G26 will be the platform for both regular 4GC and i4. Preliminary US lineup: 430i, 430i xDrive, M440i xDrive, i4 60 sDrive, i4 80 sDrive, i4 80 xDrive. Intro in 2021, both gas and electric version will likely be introduced simultaneously.
  • One more F87 M2 model is possible. Just looking at timing, it should be something very special, with a very short production run. And it will be US only.
  • My current understanding of the G80 situation (lots of it is educated guessing so don't give it your full confidence please):
    Initially, BMW planned to offer three models, positioned at 450ps (Pure), 480ps (base), and 510ps (Competition) (note that I'm using metric horsepower just like Flasch did in his recent interview). Pure would be RWD only, while the other two models would offer a choice of RWD and AWD. Early this year, the decision was made to cut the configuration planned as the base model, and adjust "Pure" to take its place. This also involved bumping the output of Pure's engine to 480ps but not changing the actual drivetrain configuration - it was just a DME tune. With that, we were left with the RWD only 480ps M3 and the 510ps M3 Competition and M3 Competition M xDrive (now say that 20 times). I haven't found anything that would describe the interplay between manual vs auto and RWD vs AWD, but it is likely that automatics will be offered for all configurations, while manuals will only be available on the two RWD versions.
  • Everything that's happening with G80 is also true for G82 but not G83. The latter will not offer as much choice, likely sticking to a single model.
September 2019
  • Some G80 details: Colors: Alpine White, Black Sapphire, Dravit Grey, Portimao Blue, Tanzanite Blue, Isle of Man Green, Sao Paolo Yellow, Toronto Red. Interiors: black, orange/black, blue/black (merino leather, partial or full). The M specific sport seats will be standard, but there will also be optional CF bucket seats (seen in the latest spy photo), available also in the U.S. Speaking of carbon fiber, there'll be much more CF trim available without the need to go to the performance catalog.
  • Non-US news but interesting enough to post: BMW is readying a new version of F40 targeted squarely at Golf GTI. It'll use the same engine as M135i but it will be detuned to 260hp and drive the front wheels. The current name for this model is "128ti", but in all ways it's going to be an M Performance model, with M aero bits, M sport brakes, sport suspension, special sport seats, and other goodies. Though still no manual transmission.
  • We should see the M5 CS in 2-3 years.
  • The next 8 cylinder M motor is going to be called S68. Most likely, it will be an evolution of S63, not something radically new. I would expect some electrification with the internal combustion side mostly staying the same. Maybe it will be the engine for M5 CS, maybe for something farther in the future - not sure yet.
  • The on-again off-again X1 M35i is on again.
  • The first M Performance PHEV vehicle is coming: M750Le xDrive.
  • BMW is planning to offer the largest battery among all BEVs on the market at 120kWh. It will go into the model that we haven't seen yet, and I'm not yet going to speculate on the car itself.
November 2019
  • It is possible F40/F44 will have a shortened lifecycle of 5 years without LCI (like we saw with the previous X5). As a total speculation, I wonder if this is because the current platform is not suitable for a proper BEV (the platform sibling Cooper SE is ridiculously weak sauce for 2019, while U06 and derivatives will hopefully be much better in that regard).
  • The likely market model name for iNext is simply "iX". The battery sizes are no longer used for model designation, instead we'll have "xDrive40", "xDrive50" and "M50 xDrive".
  • X8 is shaping up to be a halo high performance SUV, with M45e as the entry level model.
  • A note for nomenclature nerds: the mild-hybrid diesels are no longer designated "Bx7" but instead are called "XD5". 20d is XD5141O0, 40d is XD5151O0. The 5th position ("4" or "5") and the 7th position ("O" or "T") show which diesel engine is at the core of that drivetrain, so the former uses the B47O1, while the latter has B57T2 (TÜ levels are not carried over).
  • G80 is now pretty certainly tracking for mid-2020 intro. Additional colors: exterior: Frozen Brilliant White, Frozen Portimao Blue, Oxide Gray, interior: Silverstone/Black.
December 2019
  • G22/G23 complete worldwide lineup: 420d rwd and xdrive, 430d xdrive, M440d xdrive, 420i, 430i rwd and xdrive, M440i rwd and xdrive. The 48V system is going to be used in all diesels and M440i. Only the 430i and M440i models will come to the U.S. I don't see any manuals anywhere at all.
  • Likely SOP for G09 X8 is July 2022.
  • Some experimental SOP research - see the list near the top of this post.
February 2020
  • BMW still can't figure out how to call their future electric cars. The new solution: i430 and i440 for G26 BEV and i330L and i340L for G28 BEV (China only model).
  • G42 is known to include a bunch of pedestrian 4 cylinder models but now there's a much more interesting possible (very preliminary) addition: M245i.
  • Interesting new feature, first likely to appear on iNext: dynamic window and/or sunroof tint. This technology is courtesy of Continental, which calls it Intelligent Glass Control (google will give you details).
April 2020
  • Preliminary (likely incomplete) G70 lineup: 735d, 740i, 745e, M750e, i740, i750, i7 M60, with only 735d and i740 being RWD, all others AWD. Note that this is another proof of BMW rejecting the use of battery capacity in its EV model names.
  • It's not clear what's going on with M440i RWD. It does exist in the form of actual physical test cars, but it's not going into mass production in July with the other G22 versions. Let's hope it's just a delay.
June 2020
  • It appears the RWD M440i has been pushed back to March 2021.
  • Live Cockpit will be standard on the U06 family (next gen FWD) cars. The recent spyshots with large screens and few physical buttons is the new direction.
  • The same U06 family will introduce the new collaboration with Sonos for car audio as the upgrade option.
  • G30 EOP moved forward from October to June 2023.
  • EOPs for all three 8 series models postponed until 06/25 (previously, G14 was scheduled to EOP in 06/24, G15 - 10/24, G16 - 02/25).
  • Added G22 EOP: 06/27.
July 2020
  • Currently confirmed G42 models for July 2021 launch: 220d (non-US), 230i, M240i xDrive. All engines and equipment are known from existing models. No trace of the M245i name anywhere yet.
  • I believe (this is not 100% certain) i430 will be 60kWh RWD and i440 will be 80kWh AWD.
August 2020
  • Some details about I20 (iNEXT). Production starts in July 2021. Two models are known at the moment. One will have 295hp, the other 430hp (potentially there could be three drivetrain versions but I only see two implemented right now). Both seem to be dual-motor. 20" to 22" wheels. Option choices will be at the level of X5 (2-axle air suspension, soft close doors, Sky Lounge headliner, B&W audio, etc). A notable new option is called "BMW Natural Interaction" - as usual, we should expect this to show up on all higher end BMWs at approximately the same time in 2021.
  • Added G42 220i to the list of initial launch models.
  • Model name change: i430 becomes i435.
  • (Trying to redeem myself for not being the first to report on G81): I can now confirm that BMW has no plans to offer a US version of G81. For the rest of us, expect it no earlier than G21 LCI in mid-2022.
  • A new version of G82 should show up in a couple of years or so. No information on what it is exactly yet.
  • G22 and G23 M440i release schedule now looks pretty weird. G23 will start production in November, with both M440i and M440i xDrive, with the exception of the US xDrive. That one will be available from July 2021. At the same time, G22 M440i (RWD) will start production for most markets in March 2021, while the US version will again be delayed until July 2021. In other words, for American buyers, in MY2021 there will only be RWD M440i convertible and AWD M440i xDrive coupe, and the AWD convertible and RWD coupe will be added for MY2022.
  • All xDrive M3s/M4s will start production in July 2021.
September 2020
  • The additional G82 M4 model mentioned above is likely the M4 CSL.
  • G60 lineup: heavy emphasis on BEV, with models like i530, i540 xDrive, i5 M50 xDrive. More models will be known later.
  • X8 has been renamed to XM. Same model lineup as previously known: a 45e hybrid and two different gas engines.

What is happening to the 3GT and 4GC? I had heard that the next generation models were canceled, but I just read in the OP that, while the G24 4GT is canceled, the G26 4GC is still coming, just later than expected as something new and more interesting than the current model.

Does anyone know more about this?

I'd always heard the GT was being cancelled and the GC was going to continue development. This makes sense since no one bought the GT and the GC was a hit.

in the July updates above was the following info.

•G24 (next 3GT) has been canceled. Good riddance.
•G26 will keep the hatchback. There are hints that it's been delayed until 07/21.

With a possible production start of 2021... probably going to be awhile before any significant updates on the G26

thats my questions actually, is it going to be 4gt or 4gc, as M2 Adjuster said that 4gc will come but later than expected and we have heard thing about merging 3gt and 4gc in to 4gt, that actually a question, what we will get at the end

so, new gen gives us 4gc instead of early rumored 4gt?

The GC is needed for continuity between 2er and The 8.

Except....the 2GC is FWD. How does that relate to the 8?

Is it going FWD too?



Maybe the 2 series minivan relates to the 8 too. One big happy family.

The post you quoted says right at the top: "These are just US market models".

For the benefit of others, please spell check your posts.

Well the Coupe series of BMW 2er,4er and The 8 will all feature more practical Gran Coupe variants. As I said each line has continuity.

Everything about the new ///Ms intrigues me. The MT option and rwd option is awesome. I thought I timed my lease perfectly to hop into the next gen, but I'm guessing the G82 won't be out by 2020. Seems like my only options are to be down a car for a year or so, or buy it out and just enjoy it.

Sorry, but I hope the new body style looks horrible so I don't have to make that decision on my own

maybe i'm reading this wrong, but if EOP for the 2er is 10/21 with no foreseeable new models in that series until the next leak/announcement, does that mean one will not be able to procure a brand new f22 past 2021?

*Also applies to the 4er if i'm painting this picture correctly.

The OP contains information that can be verified via leaks. Not all known future BMW information falls into that category.

That said, there is mention of the next 2 Series in the OP if you read the updates in the latter half of the post. That is, the next 2 Series model codes are G42/G43. While the next 4 Series may not be mentioned specifically, it is known that the next 4 Series is the G22/G23/G26.

Also, except in special circumstances which would usually be noted in the OP or be common knowledge, the next generation of a model will start production when the current generation ends. So, unless something changes over the next few years, the next 2 Series coupe will start 11/21 and the the next 4 Series coupe will start 7/2020.

Edit: And I see ynguldyn added this today too:

G42 (the next 2er Coupe) will start production in mid-2021 and will possibly be made primarily or entirely in Mexico.

looks like the G20 330e will "generate up to 215 kW (288 HP) for short bursts. Otherwise, the car can develop up to 185 kW (248 HP)" and "will come with about 30 percent more electric range, BMW claiming it can cover 60 kilometers (37 miles) without emissions."

I may be one of the few, but I'm definitely looking forward to seeing that setup in the X3 update.

It will be more than a month or two I'm afraid. EOP for F20 is 06/19 so the successor (F40) should be introduced next summer.

It seems in this instance that there is the potential for overlapping production due to different locations, particularly if G42/43 production ramps up slowly and/or initially services Mexico or other locations while F22/F97 production continues until 10/21 in Leipzig .. ?

I wonder if there will be a next generation M2...


The E82 1M borrowed heavily from the E9x M3

The F87 M2 was developed with F80 M3 and F82 M4.

The G42/43 ... ?
