actually it was a press release by BMW. So, it's real. Also, the BMW Concept CS will become a production car

The X1 looks to be launched either just after the new-gen X3 is launched or just before (like the X3 and old/new X5 timing).

Therefore, the x3 will gain about 10 cms upon redesign in in 2010 and it will have about the same length as the first gen X5 at 466 cms. The X1 will therefore in fact be just shy of the current X3 in size (within 5 cms): that is my guess.

found this:


An abstract form the Speech of Dr. Norbert Reithofer


Here is an outlook until 2012:

We would like to confirm the announcement of the BMW X1. This model is going to complement the successful X family, together with the BMW Concept X6 presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Furthermore, we decided to manufacture a four-dour Gran Turismo based on the CS concept study showcased in Shanghai.

Another result of our strategy is that we will not build a space-functional concept. It will be replaced by a fundamentally altered concept. What I am talking about here is a new segment. We currently call the concept Progressive Activity Sedan or PAS in short. Expect this concept to introduce its own interpretation of the sedan and to surprise you with intelligent features.

As far as Rolls-Royce is concerned, we would like to confirm our plans for the third variant of the Phantom: a coupe. Moreover, we reevaluated and confirmed an additional Rolls-Royce model during our strategic review. It will slot in below the Rolls-Royce Phantom in terms of both size and price.

At MINI, we opted for a further model in the sports activity vehicle segment.

We will continue to extend the range of products under our BMW Motorrad and Husqvarna Motorcycles brands in the years ahead.

I'm thinking more of a smaller X6 version. Maybe a coupe but a little smaller than the current X3 or maybe the same size.
