Now in locally assembled version, the crisply expressive design language of the third-generation BMW X6 underscores its confident, commanding and muscular appearance in the new BMW X6 xDrive40i M Sport. The exterior length of the new BMW X6 is now 4,935 millimetres and 2,004 millimetres in width. It stands at 1,696 millimetres, 6 millimetres lower than the previous model, and combines dynamically stretched proportions with exceptional visual muscularity.

The latest generation of the BMW xDrive system once again splits drive torque between the front and rear wheels variably and as the situation demands – only now with even greater precision and speed.

The Air Breathers in body colour combine with the striking wheel arches to underline the exterior’s dynamic looks. The rear of the new BMW X6 has an extremely athletic silhouette with powerful shoulders, which is further accentuated by the wide L-shaped LED rear lights. The tailgate is integrated seamlessly and therefore almost invisibly into the car’s horizontal lines.

 

The design of the cockpit, complete with the new arrangement and design of the control elements, embodies a progressive re-interpretation of the driver focus for which BMW is renowned. Together with the raised seating position, this design approach gives the driver the best possible overview of the driving task.

Price: To be announced, range from THB 6,100,000-6,300,000

 

The new BMW X7 xDrive40d M Sport is yet another state-of-the-art Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) in locally assembled form. Combining agility, lavish presence, and spaciousness in one vehicle, the largest member of the X family dominates the road with its excellent powertrain while retaining unparalleled comfort through its generous levels of space.

 

The new BMW X7 xDrive40d M Sport is powered by a 6-cylinder diesel engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and 48-Volt Mild Hybrid technology, producing up to 250 kW / 340 hp with a peak torque at 700 Nm at 1,750 – 2,250 rpm and a top speed of 243 km/h, accelerating from 0 – 100 km/h in only 6.1 seconds. The powerful engine works in tandem with 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission, adaptive 2-axle air suspension and the BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive system to provide the SAV with unrivalled ride comfort, excellent steering precision, powerful dynamics, and authoritative character. Meanwhile, the Executive Drive Pro chassis control system ensures supreme stability and incomparably dynamic handling.

 

The new BMW X7 xDrive40d M Sport is the first locally assembled model at Plant Rayong that comes with 48-volt mild hybrid technology working in tandem with the EURO5 diesel engine and the anti-pollution additive, AdBlue, in delivering an even more eco-friendly driving experience than typical diesel engine. This latest mild hybrid system consists of a 48-volt starter generator, giving an extra electric boost of 8 kW/11 hp during start and acceleration. Meanwhile, drivers can enjoy the dynamic power while reducing pollutants with AdBlue, an additive that breaks down Nitrogen Oxide and thus reducing harmful impact on the environment.

 

The elegant characteristics of the new BMW X7 xDrive40d M Sport are accentuated through BMW’s distinct and modern design language. The M Sport package brings an extra sporting aura to add to the car’s already commanding presence, while the M Sport exhaust system provides appropriately resonant notes to match its engaging combination of power and elegance. The package also comes with M Sport brake and M leather steering wheel, both of which complete the vehicle’s attitude and personality.

 

The expansive exterior of the BMW X7 display harmonious proportions and high-impact presence with its large kidney grille and the innovative BMW Laserlight. Despite its domineering charisma, the new BMW X7 xDrive40d M Sport boasts an agile feel with its design precision, clearly structured surfaces, and athletic styling – which is further evident in the 22-inch BMW Individual light alloy wheels in Bicolour Y-spoke design.

 

With three rows of seating available to accommodate up to seven, each and every seat in the new BMW X7 xDrive40d M Sport is electrically adjustable to provide driver and passengers alike with optimal convenience. The front seats also feature active seat ventilation and massage function for maximum comfort. The BMW Individual upholstery full-leather trim in extended ‘Merino’ leather embodies the X7’s unique character, while the fine-wood trim in Fineline Black with metal effect high-gloss gives off a sense of authority and elegance inside the car. The interior elements in 'CraftedClarity' glass application further accentuate the elegant and luxurious feel along with the ambient lighting, a Panorama glass roof Sky Lounge, five-zone automatic air conditioning and rear seat entertainment Professional with two screens for rear passengers. The new BMW X7 xDrive40d M Sport also offers a generous boot capacity that can expand from 750 litres to 1,050 litres when folding the third or second row respectively, making the SAV a versatile ride for every occasion.

 

The BMW X7 comes equipped with a full range of state-of-the-art driver assistance systems for enhanced safety, such as Parking Assistant Plus and Driving Assistant as well as the latest infotainment and connectivity technologies like BMW Live Cockpit Professional with a 12.3-inch Control Display, BMW ConnectedDrive and the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant with voice command, allowing each journey to be completely personalized.

 

A further illustration of BMW’s ongoing progress towards automated driving is provided by the Reversing Assistant, which forms part of the standard Parking Assistant and offers an unmatched level of convenience through automated reversing in confined spaces or situations with limited driver visibility. By storing the car’s steering movements as it moves forward at no more than 35 km/h, the system is able to reverse the vehicle for distances of up to 50 meters by steering it along exactly the same line it took forward as the driver operates only the accelerator and brake pedals. The recorded steering movements are retained over extended periods, enabling the car to back out of parking spaces that it drove forward into the previous day.

 

The new BMW X7 xDrive40d M Sport is now available in five colour variants – including Arctic Grey Brilliant Effect, Black Sapphire Metallic, Carbon Black Metallic, Mineral White Metallic, and Phytonic Blue.

Locally emission-free driving pleasure will come to the traditional core of the midsize segment for the first time. The BMW i4 is a four-door gran coupe that combines this vehicle concept's hallmark spaciousness and practicality with the sporting ability for which BMW is renowned and a range that also convinces over long journeys. A premium character beyond that of market rivals is reflected in the high level of development of its drive system and chassis technology, its elegant design, uncompromising standards when it comes to quality of materials and workmanship and the wide variety of individualisation options available. The new generation of the BMW iDrive control/operation system and cutting-edge innovations in the area of automated driving and parking systems further enhance the emotional richness of the driving experience.

 

The BMW i4 is the BMW brand's purely electric model focused squarely on driving dynamics from the outset. The first BMW M car with a locally emission-free drive system, the new BMW i4 M50 (electric power consumption combined: 22.5-18 kWh/100 km in the WLTP test cycle, CO 2 emissions: 0 g/km) performance model from BMW M GmbH uses one electric motor at the front axle and another at the rear to deliver system output of 400 kW/544 hp and high-intensity driving pleasure - and has a range of up to 521 kilometres in the WLTP cycle. The new BMW i4 eDrive40 M Sport (electric power consumption combined: 19.1-16.1 kWh/100 km in the WLTP cycle, CO2 emissions: 0 g/km) combines a 250 kW/340 hp electric motor with classical rear-wheel drive. Its maximum range as per the WLTP cycle is up to 590 kilometres.

 

The vehicle concept offers a very BMW solution to the traditional clash between sportiness and long-distance ability: Efficient drive system technology and intelligent lightweight design enable smile-­inducing dynamics and a long range without the need for disproportionately large and heavy batteries. The BMW Group's technological expertise and long experience in the development of extremely sporty premium cars imbue the BMW i4 with dynamic driving abilities extending far beyond the rapid straight-line acceleration typical of a powerful electric car. The result is effortless progress, even in challenging driving conditions, as well as precisely controllable handling.

 

The performance characteristics of the motors are defined by their considerable torque - on tap from pull-away and sustained over an extremely wide rev band. Demanding a large amount of power for more than ten seconds in the new BMW i4 M50 triggers Sport Boost, which unfurls not only the drive system's maximum output but also maximum system torque of 795 Nm. This enables the BMW M model to sprint from 0 - 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds. The drive system in the new BMW i4 eDrive40 M Sport generates peak torque of 430 Nm, giving it a 0 - 100 km/h time of 5.7 seconds. The sporty driving experience is accompanied by a model-specific drive sound delivering authentic feedback to movements of the accelerator. This gives the new BMW i4 M50 an extremely energy-charged soundtrack. Plus, the BMW lconicSounds Electric enables integration of new sound variants created as part of a collaboration with film music composer Hans Zimmer.

 

Fifth-generation BMW eDrive technology also comprises a high-voltage battery with the latest battery cell technology. The energy content of the high-voltage battery is 83.9 kWh. DC charging is possible at up to 205 kW, taking approximately 31 minutes for 10 to 80% charging.

 

Short overhangs, slim pillars, doors with frameless windows and a roofline that flows smoothly into the rear underscore a silhouette that very much fits the BMW coupe mould. Slim headlights with BMW Laserlight, and the striking BMW kidney grille with its discreetly integrated camera, ultrasonic and radar sensors are the defining features of the front end. The new BMW i4 M50 is further equipped with M Carbon exterior package, BMW Individual high-gloss Shadow Line with extended contents, M Sport brake in red high-gloss, Lights Shadow Line, and M interior trim finishers Carbon Fibre. Meanwhile, the new BMW i4 eDrive40 M Sport comes with the M Sport package, BMW Individual Exterior Line in Aluminium satinated, and M Interior trim finishers in Aluminium Rhombicle Anthracite with highlight trim finisher in Pearl Chrome.  The new BMW i4 M50 is fitted with 19-inch M light alloy wheels Double-spoke style in Bicolour, while the new BMW i4 eDrive40 M Sport features 19-inch M light alloy wheels Y-spoke style in Bicolour.

 

The interior brings a driver-focused cockpit and ambience of premium luxury together with a generously sized, variable-use space. The large tailgate has an automatic opening and closing mechanism as standard. Load compartment capacity is 470 - 1,290 litres. Electric seat adjustment with memory, instrument panel in Sensatec, Vernasca leather, 3-Zone automatic air conditioning, ambient lighting and the Harman Kardon Surround Sound System all play their part in enhancing driving pleasure and comfort.

 

The new generation of the iDrive display and control/operation system fitted for the first time in the BMW i4 extends the interaction between driver and vehicle into natural dialogue. It is based on the new BMW Operating System 8 and has been designed with a clear focus on the touchscreen functionality of the BMW Curved Display and spoken communication with the extensively upgraded BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant. The BMW Curved Display fully digital screen grouping brings together a 12.3-inch information display and a 14.9-inch control display behind a glass surface angled towards the driver. The digital Intelligent Personal Assistant has gained additional skills and uses a new graphic to communicate with the vehicle's occupants. Remote Software Upgrades keep the car's software up to date.

 

Assistance functions are fitted to provide safe and comfortable driving and parking. Highlights in the BMW i4 M50 variant includes Driving Assistant Professional and Sport Boost; while the BMW i4 eDrive40 M Sport comes equipped with Active Cruise Control with Stop&Go function and Driving Assistant. Available in both variants are Parking Assistant Plus, Attentiveness Assistant, Acoustic Protection for Pedestrians, and Surround View Camera.

 

The new BMW i4 M50 and BMW i4 eDrive40 M Sport are now available in four colour variants – including Black Saphire, Mineral White, Brooklyn Grey, Portimao Blue for the i4 eDrive40 M Sport, and Frozen Portimao Blue for the i4 M50. Both variants will be available in limited units in Thailand, with only 16 units for the new BMW i4 M50 and 6 units for the new BMW i4 eDrive40 M Sport.

Free BMW Wallbox with installation for the first 33 customers who make an online booking from 14th February 2022 onwards.

 

The new BMW iX3 M Sport generates a maximum output of 210 kW/286 hp and peak torque of 400 Nm which, unlike with many other electric motors, is sustained at high revs. The new BMW iX3 M Sport sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.8 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 180 km/h. Sending power to the rear wheels creates a classic BMW driving experience combined with supreme traction – thanks to ARB – and outstanding efficiency. The storage capacity of the battery, relative to the installation space required and its weight, has been substantially increased. A gross energy content of 80 kWh – of which 74 kWh is utilised – and the high efficiency of the drive systems allow the new BMW iX3 to offer a range of up to 460 kilometres in the WLTP test cycle and up to 470 kilometres in the NEDC test cycle.

 

 An innovative charging unit sends power to both the 400V battery and the 12V on-board power supply. When using alternating current terminals, it enables both single-phase and three-phase charging at up to 11 kW. Plugging the vehicle into a direct current fast-charging station facilitates charging outputs of up to 150 kW. The high-voltage battery in the new BMW iX3 can therefore be charged from 0 to 80 per cent of its full capacity in 34 minutes. Adaptive recuperation is also geared to enhance efficiency and driving comfort during a journey. The latest-generation high-voltage battery is positioned low down in the car’s underbody, lowering the centre of gravity by around 7.5 centimetres compared with its conventionally powered X3 siblings. The standard adaptive suspension includes electronically controlled dampers, whose characteristics adapt to the road surface and situation at hand.

 

The iX3’s hallmark also lies in its versatility and sustainability-focused design concept with largely enclosed front apron and BMW kidney grille, while the rear end has also been sculpted to reduce air resistance. Thanks to the 40 : 20 : 40 split/folding rear seat backrest, load capacity can be increased from 510 to a maximum of 1,560 litres, as required. BMW IconicSounds Electric which comes as standard, provides acoustic feedback by Hans Zimmer when pressing start/stop. The vehicle also comes with 20-inch M aerodynamic wheels in bicolour in the new aerodynamically optimised design and Adaptive LED headlights, while also adding acoustic glazing for the front door windows, Comfort Access, Vernasca leather trim and front sports seats. The BMW Head-Up Display, High Beam Assistant and Parking Assistant Plus including Surround View camera are also on hand to enhance both comfort and safety. And for an even more exclusive flair and driving comfort, BMW gesture control, a Harman Kardon surround sound system, BMW Live Cockpit Professional, and BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant are included as standard.

The maximum torque of 114 Nm is available at 9,250 rpm. The engine speed range was made even wider, fuller and more harmonious in terms of achieving even more improved rideability thanks to a particularly linear torque curve. In order to reduce the noise and fuel consumption levels as well as the engine speed level, especially at cruising speeds on country roads, the 4th, 5th and 6th gears now have longer gear ratios. In addition to a smoother, self-reinforcing anti-hopping clutch, the new S 1000 R is equipped with engine drag torque control (MSR). The engine drag torque control prevents the rear wheel from slipping as a result of abrupt throttling or downshifting thanks to being electronically controlled.

 

The new Flex Frame is equipped with BMW S 1000 R, just like the S 1000 RR, also with underslung swingarm and optimised ergonomics. The chassis was also subjected to significant weight reduction, just like the entire motorcycle. The frame and swingarm are based on the S 1000 RR and have been made considerably lighter in than their predecessor. At the same time, the new frame offers further benefits due to its very narrow design. This considerably reduces the motorcycle’s width in the area of the knee contact area, thereby offering a more relaxed riding position with even more freedom of movement.

 

The BMW S 1000 R is equipped with "Rain" and "Road" riding modes, as well as Dynamic and Dynamic Pro, which can autonomically adjust Wheelie Control, engine brake and engine drag torque control (MSR) as well as Launch Control, Pitlane Limiter and Hill Start Control Pro. The Dynamic Brake Control (DBC) provides brake system efficiency by switching off engine power when braking in emergency conditions, resulting in a shorter braking distance while still being able to control the vehicle stably.

 

The new S 1000 R’s 6.5-inch TFT instrument cluster was also taken over from the S 1000 RR. Special emphasis was placed on the best possible readability in addition to an extended range of functions and information. The screen was therefore designed to be large for good readability and optimum information display even under difficult lighting conditions. The rider can choose between customised screen displays for various purposes, for example, provides all the necessary information for normal road riding, while a sporty screen show displays for banking angle, deceleration, and traction control. A Bluetooth smartphone interface that allows app-based arrow navigation is already included as standard. The TFT display is operated comfortably from the handlebars using the multi-controller.

 

The lighting units of the new S 1000 R are based on state-of-the-art LED technology. The newly designed turn indicator and rear lights also feature an integrated tail/brake light function. The front turn indicators are "hidden" in the front fork area. Enhanced safety when riding at night is ensured by the adaptive turning light. The rider benefits from improved road illumination when cornering to make riding at night even safer.

 

The contrasting colour scheme highlights the sporty and dynamic design of the S 1000 R and gives it a striking appearance in Hockenheim silver metallic colour.
