COMMENTS

BMW at the 64th International Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA 2011).

The once-every-two-year Frankfurt IAA auto show is nearly upon us. Press coverage will begin Tuesday, September 13. Here is a preview of the headline BMW debuts headed for Frankfurt.


World premiere: BMW i3 Concept and BMW i8 Concept.

World premiere: BMW i3 Concept and BMW i8 Concept.

BMW i is a synonym for visionary vehicles and mobility services, inspirational design and for a new interpretation of the premium concept, strongly defined by a commitment to sustainability. With BMW i, the BMW Group is taking a holistic approach: with its customised vehicle concepts, sustainability across the entire the value chain and additional mobility services, BMW i is rewriting the concept of individual mobility. At the Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA), the BMW i brand will present two very special vehicle concepts: the BMW i3 Concept, which was dubbed the Megacity Vehicle during the development stage, will be presented as the first purely electrically powered production car within the BMW Group, targeting the future challenges of mobility in urban environments, and as the first premium electric vehicle it interprets the pioneering attributes typical of the BMW brand. The BMW i8 Concept will be presented as a member of the latest generation sports cars: progressive, intelligent and innovative. Its unique plug-in hybrid design combines an internal combustion engine and an electric drive, resulting in an exceptional driving experience – with extremely low fuel consumption and emissions.

World premiere: the new BMW 1 Series.

World premiere: the new BMW 1 Series.

A second generation of the BMW 1 Series will also be presented, the epitome of driving pleasure, efficiency and premium quality in the compact segment. Furthermore, the new edition impresses with increased legroom and significantly optimised driving comfort. The rear-wheel drive, which is unique in this class of vehicle, and four-cylinder engines with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology guarantee outstanding sportiness. The sporty, elegant design and the new BMW Lines range, which enable targeted personalisation of the vehicle, contribute towards a particularly expressive appearance. Also unique in the compact class is the wide range of BMW ConnectedDrive systems, including new information systems such as the Speed Limit Information System with No-Passing Info and the Lane Departure Warning System with Collision Warning, which are now available for the BMW 1 Series for the first time.

World premiere: the new BMW M5.

World premiere: the new BMW M5.

The new BMW M5 combines the drive train and suspension technology of a high-performance sports car with the sovereign presence of a premium segment business sedan. Its new, high-revving V8 engine equipped with M TwinPower Turbo technology delivers a peak output of 412 kW/560 hp and produces a maximum torque of 680 Newton metres. This enormous power is transmitted throughthe seven-speed M double-clutch Drivelogic Transmission to the rear wheels, where the new Active M Differential ensures an ideal distribution of drive torque, even in highly dynamic driving situations and on rough terrain. Average fuel consumption of the new BMW M5 is 9.9 litres per 100 kilometres in the EU test cycle and has been reduced by more than 30 per cent compared to its predecessor.

World premiere: the BMW 520d EfficientDynamics Edition.

World premiere: the BMW 520d EfficientDynamics Edition.
With an extensively upgraded and extended range of engines, the BMW 5 Series sets new standards in driving pleasure and efficiency in the upper midrange segment. New petrol and diesel engines with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, the introduction of the Auto Start Stop feature on additional models with automatic transmission and Driving Experience Control including ECO PRO mode as standard equipment on all four- and six-cylinder models ensure further optimisation of the relationship between sportiness and fuel consumption. The BMW 520d EfficientDynamics Edition highlights the expanding lead the BMW 5 Series holds in this area, with an output of 135 kW/184 hp, fuel consumption of 4.5 litres per 100 kilometres in the EU test cycle and CO2 emissions of 119 grams per kilometre. In addition, new four-cylinder petrol engines with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology have been introduced for the BMW 520i and BMW 528i.

World premiere: the BMW X1 sDrive20d EfficientDynamics Edition.

World premiere: the BMW X1 sDrive20d EfficientDynamics Edition.
The BMW X models have become role models in a number of vehicle segments with their innovative automotive concepts and their achievements in the areas of driving pleasure and efficiency. The new engines for the BMW X 1 and the BMW X 3 further reinforce this prized status. The BMW X1 sDrive20d EfficientDynamics Edition breaks records and sets new standards in the reduction of fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Powered by a 120 kW/163 hp diesel engine, this model has an average fuel consumption of 4.5 litres per 100 kilometres in the EU test cycle and CO2 emissions of 119 grams per kilometre.

European premiere: the new BMW 6 Series Coupe and the new BMW 6 Series Convertible with diesel engines and BMW xDrive.
The new BMW 6 Series Coupe steps up to the mark with three engine variants and with XDrive intelligent four-wheel drive available upon request. In parallel to the European premiere at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, BMW will also present additional model versions of the new BMW 6 Series Convertible. In addition to a V8 and a six-cylinder inline engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, both models now also have a 230 kW/313 hp diesel unit at their disposal. The efficiency is underlined by an average fuel consumption of 5.4 to 5.5 litres per 100 kilometres in the EU test cycle for the BMW 640d Coupe and 5.6 to 5.7 litres for the BMW 640d Convertible (all figures depend upon the selected tyre format).

German premiere: new engines with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology for the BMW Z4.
Consistent deployment of BMW TwinPower Turbo technology on petrol engines ensures a strikingly more spirited performance while significantly reducing fuel consumption and emissions. Not one, but two members of the new generation of four-cylinder petrol engines are now available for the BMW Z4 Roadster. The 2.0-litre power units for the BMW Z4 sDrive20i and the BMW Z4 sDrive28i deliver 135 kW/184 hp and 180 kW/245 hp respectively. Both engines can be optionally combined with the first eight-speed automatic transmission available for the
BMW Z4.

Opens to the public on Sept 17th thru 25th. But on the 15th and 16th you can pay more for a less crowded "trade days" (no accreditation needed!) - bc the entry fee's are higher. 45 euros for each of those days. Or... 13 to 15 euros for the 17th thru 25th mass cattle call show days.

I'm paying extra this year and going on one of these two trade days. There are just way too many people who come to the IAA on the general admision dates.

Please follow our F30 coverage - http://www.bimmerpost.com/3-series/f30/

All along it's been established that the F30's world public premiere will be at the 2012 Geneva show in next March. But it will be revealed in private events late October/early November.

The tickets to the unveil are free - but you need to reserve them online before hand.
