BMW Confirms New X6, M8, 8-Series Gran Coupe, Vision M Next Concept For Frankfurt

BMW has detailed the stars of its 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show stand, or at least most of them, bringing in an armada of new models that will either make their world debut or their first appearance on a show.

The first of BMW’s new models that will be present at Frankfurt is the new 2020 X6, which will make its world debut. As ever, BMW’s popular SUV Coupe is based on the latest X5 and features a sharper, more aggressive design that takes cues from the company’s smaller X4, especially at the rear.

The new X6 is also one of the brand’s first models to offer an illuminated front grille, if that’s your thing, while the engine range is shared with the X5. The range-topping X6 M50i comes with a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 with 523 HP (530 PS) and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque.

One of the highlights in BMW’s stand will of course be the electrified Vision M Next concept, which was created to illustrate the company’s vision for a future halo model. The impressive sports car study is powered by a plug-in hybrid powertrain that allows the driver to switch between all-electric propulsion and petrol power. According to the automaker, the Vision M Next concept offers a combined 592 HP (600PS), goes from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3 seconds flat and gets to a 186 mph (300 km/h) top speed.

The new 8-Series Gran Coupe, as well as the M8 Coupe and Convertible will also celebrate their show premieres. The former is essentially the four-door version of the 8-Series, with an added 201mm of wheelbase creating ample room for the rear passengers. Meanwhile, the new M8 Coupe and Convertible pose at the new flagship M cars, using the same powertrain as the M5, meaning a twin-turbo V8 with 592 HP (600 PS). Go for the Competition model and this raises to 617 HP, making the Coupe capable of a 0-62mph (100km/h) in 3.2 seconds.

Show visitors will also be able to see the 3-Series Touring, facelifted X1 and of course the all-new 1-Series hatchback. BMW didn’t mention any other concepts but, according to the latest reports, they are planning to preview the new 4-Series Coupe with a near-production-ready concept.

Finally, another upcoming model not mentioned is the upcoming M3, which could make a surprise debut as well.
