BMW planning Gran Coupe-based 6 Series and Megacity EV sportscar
Lately, we’ve been hearing a lot about BMW‘s hybrid and electric vehicle endeavors, with the Megacity project taking center stage.
This doesn’t mean the Bavarians are going off-track, as a batch of new rumors are speculating about some serious hardcore projects going on at the German company.
First off, remember the stunning Gran Coupe concept we saw during the Beijing Motor Show? It seems that it will become a reality in the future as the next 6 Series. According to Inside Line, the next 6er will arrive around 2012 and really target similar models from traditional rivals like Audi or Mercedes-Benz.
If internal combustion cars aren’t your thing, then relax, as BMW is also planning something special for the Megacity EV project. According to Autocar, the electric vehicle range will see the addition of a sportscar, in the vein of the EfficientDynamics concept we saw some time ago. Sadly, this is much further away, as the first EV is set to appear in 2013, and the sportscar after it.
Still, it seems BMW knows how to please its hardcore fans and we will see plenty of interesting models from the Bavarians in the future.
