BMW Is Rushing To Deploy An Absurd 28 New Models By 2021


The Bavarian automaker has to do what it can to quench this scattered performance, SUV, and electric car demand.

Capitalism has spoiled us for choice, making it so that decreasing costs of production and expanding consumer palate has littered our grocery store shelves with multi-colored foods that are sweet, salty, and everything in between. The recent rise in popularity of luxury cars, a strong auto market, and the increase of platform sharing has led luxury automakers to do the same by expanding their lineups drastically. Following suit, BMW will release 28 new models by 2021, claims Auto Motor Und Sport (via BMW Blog).

The German automotive site got the magical number of 28 models by factoring in refreshed models and special editions in addition to entirely new cars. The newest of the new include vehicles such as the X2, X7, and the 8 Series coupe and convertible. Other noteworthy cars include the upcoming M5, 5 Series Touring, 6 Series Gran Turismo (ugh), M2 GTS, i8 Spyder, and the i5. While the X3 is already around, its replacement, set to come out at the tail end of 2017, will be the first SUV to feature the automaker’s CLAR platform on which future models will be based. Unlike the Toyota Supra, the BMW Z5, which will share its platform, will come with rear-wheel drive instead of the Supra's all-wheel drive.
