New trademarks registered by BMW gives some insight into new model lineups that will eventually be added to BMW's offerings. The new names include: i1, i2, i3, i4, i5, i6, i7, i8, i9, E1, E2, E3, E4, E5, E6, E7, E8, E9, M50d, Urbanic, Gran Coupe, Compactive, and Compactive Tourer
The "i" lineup of cars could very well be used to designate the sub-compact electric megacity vehicle we've been hearing about for a while. The "E" lineup of cars could possibly be used to designate electric versions of current BMW models. "M50d" is speculated to refer to a tri-turbo diesel. "Urbanic" could be a new trim level associated with the megacity vehicles. And "Compactive and "Compactive Tourer" could be applied to wagons based on the 1- and 3-Series.
