  • In production 07/27-06/35

U12 X1 China
  • SOP 03/23
  • Intro models: sDrive18Li, sDrive20Li, xDrive20Li.
  • 07/23: iX1 xDrive30L.

U10 X2

  • Will include the electric iX2, same models as iX1. US may end up getting only xDrive28i and M35i xDrive.

G45 X3
  • In production 08/24-10/33
  • Will be available with all types of drivetrains but will focus on electric motors and hybrids. There will still be X3M (G97).
  • The top level (non full M) ICE model is getting the M50i designation, whether or not it bring any significant power increase is unclear. I strongly doubt it will have over 500hp like the current 50i/M50i models.
  • Two US gas models to start (base - no designation known yet, and M50i), no new engines, making a step up in luxury (standard comfort access, Iconic Glow exterior like on the next 5 series, fancier interior materials, driver aids matching the current X5 - also means no L3 autonomy, the best audio is still HK, ID8 dash), M50i also has standard M Sport suspension (adaptive optional), different wheels, and the usual M interior and exterior parts.

NA5 iX3
  • In production 8/25-10/33 (SLP starts with a delay of over a year).

G46 X4
  • SOP 12/25
  • Will be available with all types of drivetrains but will focus on electric motors and hybrids. There will still be X4M (G98).

NA7 iX4
  • In production 11/26-06/34

G05 X5/G06 X6/F95 X5M/F96 X6M
  • In production until 07/26 (G05, F95) and 03/28 (G06, F96)
  • LCI in 04/23.
  • G05/G06 models almost the same as now, with X6 sDrive40i dropped at least in the US. Will get the refreshed B57 (non-US), B58 and the new S68 engines: xDrive40i is now 370hp, xDrive50e bumps all the way to 480hp with the powertrain we'll first see in 750e, M50i becomes M60i. M package becomes standard on X6. Ambient Air and Acoustic Glazing will be available; X5 will have the illuminated grill like X6 does now.
  • F95/F96 X5M/X6M LCI is moving to S68 and gets renamed to X5/X6 M Competition (no more Comp option - just one version remains, like we've seen with other M model refreshes). The official output of the gasoline unit will remain at 600hp but since this is a mild hybrid we should expect a small bump in the actual performance.
  • Since M Sport will be standard on the X6 LCI, the words "M Sport" are going to be a part of the full name of the model. Like "X6 xDrive40i M Sport".

G65/G95 X5, iX5, X5M
  • In production 12/26-07/33

G66/G96 X6, iX6, X6M
  • In production 04/28-03/35

G67 X7, iX7
  • In production 08/27-11/34

G09 XM
  • In production until 11/27
  • 08/23: two models added: XM 50e (powertrain from 750ex) and XM Label (powertrain from the original XM tuned to 740hp).

G79 iXM
  • In production 12/28-11/35

I20 iX
  • In production until 06/28
  • Motorway Assistant available from 03/23.

EOP dates for the current models not listed above:

G30 5er - 06/23
F39 X2 - 10/23

G31 5er - 02/24
G32 6GT - 06/24 (US EOP was 06/19)
F40 1er - 06/24
G01 X3 - 07/24
F44 2er - 10/24

G08 X3/iX3 - 04/25
G02 X4 - 11/25
G07 X7 - 07/27

General, non-model specific, and engine notes
  • Euro-specific bit of good news: S58 will be EU7 compliant.
  • Current state of availability of the next level driver assist package ("Motorway Assistant"): G70 at intro; G05/G06/G07 from April 2023.
  • 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.
May 2022
  • Confirmed i7 eDrive50 with 450hp for 03/23.
  • Added X1 xDrive25e with 240hp, also for 03/23.
  • G20, G21, and G28 will get optional Iconic Glow kidneys in 2024 for MY2025.
  • G42 M240i/M240ix will get optional carbon roof, also in 2024.
  • Production of G20 has been extended to 06/27 (07/27 for SLP), G21 - 10/27, G22 and G23 - 06/28. The corresponding M models will also remain in production. This is highly unusual, breaking the traditional 7 year model cycle. I will be looking for more confirmation of this but I think the most plausible explanation is the replacement of the 3/4 series as we know it with Neue Klasse based EVs, as mentioned in recent interviews of BMW top managers.
  • i7 M70 xDrive will produce 650hp.
June 2022
  • Right on the heels of G81 intro, another bit of happy news for non-US touring fans: G99 M5 Touring is real. If it doesn't die under a beancounter's knife, it'll start production in 11/24.
  • Adding SOP for G90
  • The primary production plant for Neue Classe cars for the North American market will be SLP. It will start with two models. NA0/NA1 i3 sedan and touring will be successors to G20/G21. NA5 iX3 will be built in parallel with G45 X3 (similar to Mercedes making separate ICE and EV models for the same market segment). All these models will start production in 2027.
  • G05/G06/G07 will be succeeded by G65 X5 and iX5, G66 X6 and iX6, G67 X7 and iX7. These will be CLAR based cars, not Neue Klasses, and as such their EV versions will still share the hardware with ICE and hybrid models just like i4 and i7 do today.
  • The entry level XM will use hybrid B58 from G70 750e.
  • G20/G21: Some kind of a mild cosmetic refresh in 07/24. At the same time, US engines will be brought in line with the new emissions requirements (next year we'll know if that will affect power output). In EU, all diesel engines will be brought to EU7 compliance starting 03/25.
  • The first true Level 3 autonomous driving system called "Personal Pilot" will be available on select G6x and G70 models in Europe and China starting in late 2023 on G70 and July 2024 on G6x. I'm not seeing this functionality on US cars yet.
  • Two i5 Touring models are confirmed to be offered in the G61 lineup at intro. (G60/G61/G68 section above has been rearranged for clarity).
July 2022
  • Confirmed names and specs for two more versions of G09 XM: the entry level model will be XM 50e with the same powertrain as the upcoming 750ex, the top model will be XM Label with the powertrain of the intro XM tuned to 740hp. Both start production in 08/23.
  • The new version of the top level transverse B48 (used in FWD M35i cars) will produce 315hp. First appearance in U11 X1 M35i xDrive.
  • Introductory lineup for G60 5er: worldwide 520i (B48, 190hp), 520d (B47, 195hp), 520dx, 530ix (B48, 255hp), i5 eDrive40 (335hp - same as i4), i5 M60 xDrive (590hp - same as iX); US 530i, i5 eDrive40, i5 M60 xDrive. Note that G60 will not introduce any new engines or electric motors.
  • Manual G29 Z4 (original reporting by BMWBlog) is confirmed. Availability from 03/24.
  • Adjustment to G2x timeline: The demise of G20/G21 has been moved to 02/27, while the diesel engine emissions adaptation is now happening in 11/25 instead of 03/25. For G22/G23 that diesel engine change will happen in 03/26.
  • I was wrong in my reporting on G99 when I said it was good news for non-US fans. It is actually good news for everyone. I can confirm the US version is also planned. G61 is still not coming.
  • Known colors for G60: Brooklyn Grey, Phytonic Blue, Cape York Green, Black Sapphire, Carbon Black, Alpine White, Mineral White, Frozen Pure Grey; interiors: vegan Smoke White, Black, two other Black with new stitching type, leather Black/Atlas Grey M.
  • Since M Sport will be standard on the X6 LCI, the words "M Sport" are going to be a part of the full name of the model. Like "X6 xDrive40i M Sport". This used to be a joke, not it's reality.
September 2022
This is a special update with a long list of future models, and their production locations and dates. The list includes very long term future plans, and as such they are highly speculative. There's no guarantee the listed models will even exist at all. This comes from another active forum participant whose search skills significantly exceed mine. I'm breaking it up by model series/platform, including only those with new information. Note that all F and G models are the current architectures with gas, hybrid or pure electric power, all N models are electric only Neue Klasse. Skipping China specific stuff because who cares.
  • 1/2/X1:
    • F70 1 series hatch, Germany, 7/24-6/30
    • F74 2 series GC, Germany, 11/24-10/30

  • M Sport package option has been restored to the US i4 eDrive35.
November 2022
  • Added iX1 eDrive20 SOP in 11/23.
  • The M2 change in 08/24 is possibly just an engine mod to new emissions standards and not the transition to M2 Comp.
  • Added some details about G45 X3 configuration: two US gas models to start (base - no designation known yet, and M50i), no new engines, making a step up in luxury (standard comfort access, Iconic Glow exterior like on the next 5 series, fancier interior materials, driver aids matching the current X5 - also means no L3 autonomy, the best audio is still HK, ID8 dash), M50i also has standard M Sport suspension (adaptive optional), different wheels, and the usual M interior and exterior parts.
  • There will be another special M3 model in 2024-2025, either another run of M3 CS (based on LCI2) or something similar.
  • The G90/G99 M5 powertrain will be tuned to 700hp.
  • Starting to see specific models that will be available at G61 launch: 520d, 520dx, i5 eDrive40 and M60x.
