From a business perspective, I think BMW is taking the correct approach. Utilizing the same platform and production assembly to make both the Gas and Electric vehicles. This is our future, at least near term, as we still have the gasoline vehicle option….for now.

BMW Design has officially and permanently shifted to Bizzaro world.

Simply Hideous if this is anywhere near the actual front design.

That's the issue with BMW's current designs. There's no direction. It was ok when it was just the grille being big and that was the focal point but now there are way too many things that catches your eye. I understand that this is just a render but you look at the M3/M4 and the X3/X4 LCI, too much is going on with the front fascia.

I've been really impressed with the new design of the genesis, Kia and Buick brands lately.

For God's sake, officially this is the most horrible BMW ever made.
Hard to beat the iX, but this makes iX look gorgeous.

Wtf, none of that front end flows together at all. I've don't have an issue with the big grille (love my G80) but if this is anywhere close to reality…BMW has lost their minds! Nothing cohesive about this at all and the lights are a disaster. Seems like the design of the front end was split up into 8 different groups and they all worked in their own little silo without ever talking to the other teams.

In the words of Mills Lane: "I'll Allow It!" While I'm sure (read: hoping) those tiny lights at the top die a slow and painful death, I'm liking where the aesthetic BMW is going for.

If you're trying to market your cars to a higher end crowd (and vs — self/owner professed — higher end car makers — PORSCHE — cough!) I think you've gotta think outside the box. You want head turners so to speak. You want to be in Atlanta, The "Exotic-Car-I-Can't-Afford" Capital of America, or Miami/SoBe it's Spanish Cousin, and have gawkers asking each other "What kinda car was THAT!?". Some will be flummoxed with amazement, others will think they're hideous George Foreman's on wheels.

The point is, BMW is a rap video away from becoming mainstream cool again. Whatever constitutes that these days. (See e.g: Jay-Z/Beyoncé stumping for Tiffany in front of a Basquiat after LVMH took over; Lewis Hamilton in…gasp…Tommy Hilfiger; the popularity of the new Vette amongst certain segments of the younger set)

Don't get me wrong, I'm probably the biggest BMW hype man out there, but I don't see the excitement for ///M cars, outside of our wonderful community that is, for Bimmers that I do for other brands. I think Maseratis are FUGLY, but boy do they turn heads at valet. Teslas are aight, but when my cousin w 3 teslas got into our X5M Competition he was genuinely surprised with how far BMW had come. I think BMW has to attract a younger crowd of buyers. Look at the threads asking about age and marital status of BMW owners. I see a lot of guys in their 30s-40s. Whether we like it or not, their segment is aging…and buying Audis.

Admittedly this is a rather elitist (and quite possibly totally off base) view. But I'm getting the sense that BMW may be tired of being looked at, largely, as Ford's rich German cousin.

BMW has become a Chinese manufacturer. The design might be a hit in China but in the rest of the world it's not. Don't know how long this strategy will last.

BMW is bringing Brutalism(Brutalist Architecture) to automotive design.

Very cool looking.... modern, bold and brutal.

This design language is going to look awesome on the upcoming X7.
