BMW X8 will be the most expensive model of the brandDecember 7, 2018
The flagship SUV BMW X7 xDrive50i M Sport costs an incredible amount of 122,425 dollars, but the forthcoming four-seater BMW X8 may become even more expensive. Independent sources report on the development of a future premium model.
Bavarian BMW is preparing to produce the next flagship – a premium four-seat SUV X8. So far there is no official information about this, but rumors and unconfirmed sources indicate the beginning of the development of a future novelty. Moreover, its value is expected to be significantly higher than the top version of the BMW X7 xDrive50i M Sport.
At the moment, it is assumed that the model is listed under the code name G90, and a full-size luxury SUV will not receive a coupe. It is possible that BMW intends to fill the gap between the X7 models and the Rolls-Royce Cullinan. Most likely, the model will get a four-seater layout with individual rear seats for maximum comfort.
Semi-autonomous driving systems, numerous security systems, premium multimedia features, as well as luxurious finishes using expensive and unique materials will be seen in the standard equipment.
Unfortunately, it is still very early to talk about any technical information. But it can be assumed that a modern hybrid with a large power reserve from the electric battery will be used as a power unit.
Meanwhile, BMW said that it is considering the technical possibility of forcibly transferring its own hybrids to electric traction in special ecological zones of large cities. This will increase the attractiveness of hybrids.
