Earlier in 2018
  • Funny enough, F94 X7M was (is?) under consideration.
  • G26 4GC will keep the hatchback.
  • I20 iNext will have at least two performance levels.
  • EOP for F36 4GC has been moved to 06/21. This should be seen as evidence of the G26 4GC needing extra development time so it can become a more interesting (unusual?) car than its predecessor.
  • The initial release of i4 will have an 80kWh battery and the choice of a single or dual motor drivetrain.
  • G42 2er Coupe will be produced from 08/21 to 03/29 and will possibly be made primarily or entirely in Mexico.
November 2018
  • BMW i4 is not going to be built from the ground up as a BEV. Instead, it will be one of the versions of G26, similar to the recently introduced iX3, though hopefully with better performance. It will start as a RWD or AWD with 80kWh battery. If you want a clean sheet BEV, you'll have to wait for the I20. How closely the iNext concept reflects that future production car remains to be seen. Both i4 and I20 should be expected around 2021. In other words, I can confirm the AutoExpress report here: https://www.autoexpress.co.uk/bmw/10...stream-in-2021
  • G42 is confirmed to be built in Mexico.
  • G09 X8 exists outside car journos' dreams.
  • The same i4 BEV drivetrain could also find its way into the Chinese 3er LWB (G28). I'm not seeing it in a regular G20 yet.
January 2019
  • There's still no hint of an electric G20. It is highly probable that G26 will be the BEV model for the world and G28 - for China.
  • And that also means that G26 will be a true mix of 3GT and 4GC: long wheel base with a more streamlined hatchback body (which we've all just seen for the first time).
March 2019
  • Potential models for G42 could include 220i, 220d, 220d xDrive, 230i, 230i xDrive, M240i, and M240i xDrive.
  • The next 5 series range currently consists of G60 sedan, G61 touring, and G68 LWB.
  • The next generation RR Ghost EWB will include an all-electric version.
  • The next likely candidate for 48V is G01/G02.
  • First news about the next (G87) M2: production 12/2022-03/2029, likely in Mexico.
  • G01 X3 and G02 X4 will have their life extended to 10/24 and 06/25. It's possible Spartanburg will not be the primary production plant for their successors.
August 2019
  • G26 will be the platform for both regular 4GC and i4. Preliminary US lineup: 430i, 430i xDrive, M440i xDrive, i4 60 sDrive, i4 80 sDrive, i4 80 xDrive. Intro in 2021, both gas and electric version will likely be introduced simultaneously.
  • One more F87 M2 model is possible. Just looking at timing, it should be something very special, with a very short production run. And it will be US only.
  • The G83 will not offer as much choice, likely sticking to a single model.
September 2019
  • We should see the M5 CS in 2-3 years.
  • The next 8 cylinder M motor is going to be called S68. Most likely, it will be an evolution of S63, not something radically new. I would expect some electrification with the internal combustion side mostly staying the same. Maybe it will be the engine for M5 CS, maybe for something farther in the future - not sure yet.
  • The on-again off-again X1 M35i is on again.
  • The first M Performance PHEV vehicle is coming: M750Le xDrive.
  • BMW is planning to offer the largest battery among all BEVs on the market at 120kWh. It will go into the model that we haven't seen yet, and I'm not yet going to speculate on the car itself.
November 2019
  • It is possible F40/F44 will have a shortened lifecycle of 5 years without LCI (like we saw with the previous X5). As a total speculation, I wonder if this is because the current platform is not suitable for a proper BEV (the platform sibling Cooper SE is ridiculously weak sauce for 2019, while U06 and derivatives will hopefully be much better in that regard).
  • The likely market model name for iNext is simply "iX". The battery sizes are no longer used for model designation, instead we'll have "xDrive40", "xDrive50" and "M50 xDrive".
  • X8 is shaping up to be a halo high performance SUV, with M45e as the entry level model.
  • A note for nomenclature nerds: the mild-hybrid diesels are no longer designated "Bx7" but instead are called "XD5". 20d is XD5141O0, 40d is XD5151O0. The 5th position ("4" or "5") and the 7th position ("O" or "T") show which diesel engine is at the core of that drivetrain, so the former uses the B47O1, while the latter has B57T2 (TÜ levels are not carried over).
December 2019
  • Likely SOP for G09 X8 is July 2022.
February 2020
  • BMW still can't figure out how to call their future electric cars. The new solution: i430 and i440 for G26 BEV and i330L and i340L for G28 BEV (China only model).
  • G42 is known to include a bunch of pedestrian 4 cylinder models but now there's a much more interesting possible (very preliminary) addition: M245i.
  • Interesting new feature, first likely to appear on iNext: dynamic window and/or sunroof tint. This technology is courtesy of Continental, which calls it Intelligent Glass Control (google will give you details).
April 2020
  • Preliminary (likely incomplete) G70 lineup: 735d, 740i, 745e, M750e, i740, i750, i7 M60, with only 735d and i740 being RWD, all others AWD. Note that this is another proof of BMW rejecting the use of battery capacity in its EV model names.
June 2020
  • Live Cockpit will be standard on the U06 family (next gen FWD) cars. The recent spyshots with large screens and few physical buttons is the new direction.
  • The same U06 family will introduce the new collaboration with Sonos for car audio as the upgrade option.
  • G30 EOP moved forward from October to June 2023.
  • EOPs for all three 8 series models postponed until 06/25 (previously, G14 was scheduled to EOP in 06/24, G15 - 10/24, G16 - 02/25).
  • Added G22 EOP: 06/27.
July 2020
  • Currently confirmed G42 models for July 2021 launch: 220d (non-US), 230i, M240i xDrive. All engines and equipment are known from existing models. No trace of the M245i name anywhere yet.
  • I believe (this is not 100% certain) i430 will be 60kWh RWD and i440 will be 80kWh AWD.
August 2020
  • Some details about I20 (iNEXT). Production starts in July 2021. Two models are known at the moment. One will have 295hp, the other 430hp (potentially there could be three drivetrain versions but I only see two implemented right now). Both seem to be dual-motor. 20" to 22" wheels. Option choices will be at the level of X5 (2-axle air suspension, soft close doors, Sky Lounge headliner, B&W audio, etc). A notable new option is called "BMW Natural Interaction" - as usual, we should expect this to show up on all higher end BMWs at approximately the same time in 2021.
  • Added G42 220i to the list of initial launch models.
  • Model name change: i430 becomes i435.
  • (Trying to redeem myself for not being the first to report on G81): I can now confirm that BMW has no plans to offer a US version of G81. For the rest of us, expect it no earlier than G21 LCI in mid-2022.
  • A new version of G82 should show up in a couple of years or so. No information on what it is exactly yet.
  • For the US, the G23 M440i xDrive will be available from July 2021. The G22 M440i (RWD) will start production for most markets in March 2021, while the US version will again be delayed until July 2021. In other words, for American buyers, for MY2021 there will only be RWD M440i convertible and AWD M440i xDrive coupe while the AWD convertible and RWD coupe will be added for MY2022.
  • All xDrive M3s/M4s will start production in July 2021.
September 2020
  • The additional G82 M4 model mentioned above is likely the M4 CSL.
  • G60 lineup: heavy emphasis on BEV, with models like i530, i540 xDrive, i5 M50 xDrive. More models will be known later.
  • X8 has been renamed to XM. Same model lineup as previously known: a 45e hybrid and two different gas engines.
November 2020
  • The electric version of the next generation X1 (will be sold as "iX1") will be available in single-motor and dual-motor configurations with two range options. As a hint of motor power output, the designation for the single motor model will use "20" and the dual motor will use "30".
  • Alpina B8 Gran Coupe starts production in March '21.
  • F90 M5 CS will be in production for precisely one year from March '21 to February '22 as a 2022 model. In the end, it won't be as extreme as many hoped. The same engine as regular M5 tuned to 625hp, CF buckets, more CF in the body, no middle passenger in the back, special wheels seem to be the only major things.
  • F44 production has been extended to 10/24.
  • G23 will be in production until 10/27.
  • LCI for G22/G23 is scheduled for 03/24.
  • G80/G82 production confirmed to end at the same time as G20/G22.
  • On a more general note, looking at all the information available to me I can't shake the feeling that we're at the end of active development of internal combustion engines, at least for mass market vehicles. There will of course be some advances and improvements but even the future generations of BMW vehicles (right now I'm looking specifically at the new transverse platform, the Minis and the 1-series) are going to use the same well known engines we see in various models today.
  • Addition (or a replacement for one of the listed models) to the G70 lineup I provided in April: i745.

It seems very reasonable given the G42 doesn't arrive until mid 2021. For the M to come a year and half after the Series model isn't bad at all.

It will be interesting to see how the possibility of a new M240i plays out with your previous comments (in July 2018) that the G42 may only get the B48. Of course that could have changed now, but it seems to me that a high output B48, let's say ~350hp, would make sense for a neo-M240i. It would be lighter than the I6. And maybe by 2022, B58 models will have adopted the *45i and M*45i moniker, opening up M*40i for use with the B48.

Actually, I'm not sure about the exact timing of this anymore. Regular X3s and X4s - definitely mid-2019. But M variants could continue using the existing system until early 2020.

My problem is I have conflicting information and don't know which source to trust.

Very interested in this! Anything you can share, now in the future, about the car or even when or where it will be announced, would be much appreciated.
