BMW is debuting it's new 7 Series Horse Edition.
BMW at the 13th Beijing International Automotive Exhibition 2014.
With several Asian and Chinese premieres, BMW is using this year's
Beijing International Automotive Exhibition from 20 to 29 April 2014
to present an array of compelling production models which are geared
to meeting present-day customer requirements and in some cases usher
in all-new market segments.
BMW X4: a powerful presence.
The BMW X4 marks the introduction of a new vehicle segment in the
premium mid-range that combines hallmark features of the BMW X models
with the sporting elegance of a classical coupe and room for five
people. The new BMW X4 accentuates its dynamic character with large
air intakes in the front apron, a coupe-like sloping roofline,
muscular rear wheel arches and a rear end featuring diffuser-look
styling. And it has a range of engines to match: the BMW X4 xDrive28i
(fuel consumption urban/extra-urban/combined:
9.38.7*/6.35.9*/7.47.0* l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 172162*
g/km) and the BMW X4 xDrive35i (fuel consumption
urban/extra-urban/combined: 10.7/6.9/8.3 l/100 km; CO2 emissions
combined: 193 g/km) boast BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, which endows
them with output of 180 kW/245 hp and 225 kW/306 hp respectively along
with compelling levels of efficiency. Displaying an equally
magisterial power curve and CO2 efficiency is the BMW X4 xDrive35d
(fuel consumption urban/extra-urban/combined: 6.7/5.5/6.0 l/100 km;
CO2 emissions combined: 157 g/km). Its 3.0-litre six-cylinder in-line
engine generates 230 kW/313 hp and peak torque of 630 Nm (465 lb-ft),
taking it from standstill to 100 km/h in 5.2 seconds. The BMW X4
xDrive 30d (fuel consumption urban/extra-urban/combined:
6.66.2*/5.75.4*/6.15.7* l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 159149*
g/km) is likewise powered by a 3.0-litre straight-six unit with 190
kW/258 hp and peak torque of 560 Nm (413 lb-ft). The entry-level
engines comprise the BMW xDrive20i (fuel consumption
urban/extra-urban/combined: 9.28.7*/6.35.9*/7.36.9* l/100 km; CO2
emissions combined: 171161* g/km), a 184 hp four-cylinder petrol
unit, and the BMW X4 xDrive20d (fuel consumption
urban/extra-urban/combined: 5.85.4*/5.14.8*/5.45.0* l/100 km; CO2
emissions combined: 141131* g/km), a newly developed four-cylinder
turbo diesel with 190 hp. Standard equipment includes xDrive all-wheel
drive, an eight-speed automatic transmission, variable sport steering,
Performance Control and a sports leather steering wheel with shift
*Figures with optional reduced-rolling-resistance tyres on 17-inch
Streamline style 306 light-alloy wheels.
BMW 2 Series Active Tourer: dynamics and functionality of space.
The new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer ushers in a whole new class of car,
combining comfort and functionality of space with the hallmark BMW
strengths of dynamism, style and elegance in the premium compact
class. The BMW 2 Series Active Tourer follows in the tyre tracks of
the Coupe as the second member of the new BMW 2 Series line-up and
impresses from every angle with its sporty presence and harmonious
proportions. New turbocharged engines with three and four cylinders,
an extensive package of BMW EfficientDynamics technology and
wide-reaching connectivity courtesy of BMW ConnectedDrive illustrate a
driving experience defined by sports performance and exemplary
efficiency. In order to meet the particular requirements of the
compact class in terms of variability and functionality, BMW has given
the 2 Series Active Tourer a cutting-edge front-wheel-drive set-up.
And it has honed its responses to fully satisfy the dynamic
expectations of a model wearing the BMW badge.
BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe: a new yardstick for elegance and
With its premium mid-size four-door Coupe, BMW demonstrates its
commitment to expanding its model range. Following the BMW 4 Series
Coupe (fuel consumption combined: 8.44.6 l/100 km; CO2 emissions
combined: 197121 g/km) and Convertible (fuel consumption combined:
8.44.8 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 195127 g/km), the Gran
Coupe is the third member of the new BMW 4 Series family and with
its well-balanced proportions is longer, wider and more dynamic than
any mid-size model series before it. The BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe
merges the stylistic qualities of the two-door Coupe with the
functionality of four doors and generous levels of space behind the
high-opening tailgate. Five punchy, refined and economical engines
will be available from launch, developing outputs ranging from 105
kW/143 hp in the BMW 418d Gran Coupe (fuel consumption
urban/extra-urban/combined: 5.4/4.0/4.5 l/100 km; CO2 emissions
combined: 119 g/km) to 225 kW/306 hp in the BMW 435i Gran Coupe (fuel
consumption urban/extra-urban/combined: 11.4/6.2/8.1 l/100 km; CO2
emissions combined: 189 g/km).
BMW 2 Series Coupe: a new dimension in dynamics.
The BMW 2 Series Coupe can be distinguished from the BMW 1 Series
line-up (fuel consumption combined: 8.03.8 l/100 km; CO2 emissions
combined: 18899 g/km) by its standalone design, significantly larger
dimensions, an engine range and suspension set-up geared squarely to
sports performance, and more extensive standard equipment. The
four-seater BMW 2 Series Coupe, with its two-door body, brings
hallmark elements of BMW Coupes to the compact segment. Sophisticated
suspension technology, virtually 50:50 weight distribution and
rear-wheel drive ensure the presence of signature BMW handling
BMW M3 Sedan, BMW M4 Coupe: innovative engine technology and a
commitment to lightweight design.
With the new BMW M3 Sedan and the new BMW M4 Coupe, BMW M GmbH
showcases its new take on the high-performance sports car. The
all-new, high-revving, six-cylinder in-line engine with M TwinPower
Turbo technology delivers maximum output of 317 kW (431 hp) and peak
torque of 550 Newton metres (406 lb-ft), the latter figure exceeding
that of the previous BMW M3 by almost 40 per cent. Fuel consumption
and emissions have been cut by around 25 per cent. Both the BMW M3
Sedan and BMW M4 Coupe (with optional seven-speed M Double Clutch
Transmission) cover the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds.
BMW 7 Series Horse Edition: exclusive, luxurious, distinctive.
The luxurious and dynamic BMW 7 Series Horse Edition makes its
appearance on the Chinese market in the newly welcomed Year of the
Horse. The long-wheelbase version of this luxury Sedan comes with
exclusive BMW Individual paint finishes and sporty M equipment
packages augmented by high-class interior details.
BMW i market launch in China: electric motoring courtesy of the BMW i3
and BMW i8.
With the joint presentation of its first volume-produced vehicle
powered purely by an electric drive system and a sports car currently
holding the status of the world's most progressive, the BMW i brand is
highlighting the broad spread of its future-oriented vehicle concepts.
The two models represent a new, strongly sustainability-focused
interpretation of the premium experience. The electric motors and
lithium-ion high-voltage batteries of the two models were developed by
the BMW Group in model-specific versions. Another special ingredient
conceived exclusively for BMW i is the LifeDrive architecture with
passenger cell made from carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP), which
plays a major role in minimising the weight of the cars. And a world
first in a series-produced car comes in the form of the optional laser
headlights available for the BMW i8. Developed by BMW, they offer
three times the intensity and twice the high-beam range of
conventional systems, as well as extremely low energy consumption.
