A rumor that a new concept, BMW X4, will be available within the next few years, has been going around for a year now. Back in August 2007, we reported a BMW X4 being tested, but there mostly pure speculations and some of them were false. At that time, we believed that the X4 will have its design based out of the new X3 generation. 

What we learned later on was that the BMW X4 will be a smaller version of the BMW’s Sports Activity Coupe, the X6. Today, our friend Palbay confirms one of the speculations: the X4 will be using most of the new second generation BMW X3 components, in a move to reduce costs. This also goes hand in hand with their latest trend of releasing smaller size cars, powered by fuel efficient technologies.

The projected launch date is set at the beginning of 2010 and the X4 will be released in an all wheel-drive and rear-wheel-drive models. As mentioned before, the BMW X4 will join the X models production at the Spartanburg plant in South Carolina.

    Palbay must be smoking something. There is 0.0% chance that an x4 will be greenlighted, developed, and released by 2010, even as a 2011 model. Absolutely no chance. Furthermore, Car Magazine’s sources claim BMW has axed both X4 and X7 lines. I’d love the option of buying an X4, but at this point, even the possibility of getting my hands on an X1 by 2010 are in doubt. This is just bunk.

    @Jeff: No Jeff, only the X7 was canceled, the X4 is still on from what I heard also. Now, it all depends on the economy, of course, so we’ll see if it’s delayed or not. I did hear that we should see a concept early next year.

    Please no more stupid SUV like cars… i’m so effing tired of them.
    Why not make the 3 series bigger, make the 1 series bigger, and just go from there….

    @Artmic: different cars, different market.

    BMW is following GMs steps…yea, keep going. It really makes a lot of sense to create 6 different models for an SUV market.

    BMW will make what the market will buy, forget purist BMW mantra.people said the X6 didn’t make sense , it sold out. It’s “not your fathers BMW anymore”.

    @dmlgc:

    The 911 has had the same basic design and principles for the last 45ish years and it still works. It’s grown in size and weight, yes, but they aren’t building some sort of 911/SUV monstrosity off of it. And don’t say the Cayenne because that’s just a rebadged Touareg – not platformed off of another Porsche design.

    The US cannot get enough of SUV/SAV’s. Even with higher gas prices, we still buy sport utes, but we want them to be smaller and more fuel efficient. I went from a Jeep Grand Cherokee to an X3 and would never look back. I love that I can have a car to haul my “junk” and my dog with a BMW badge on the butt of it. I cannot do everything I need to in life in a 3 series. I do question though, how many times can they cut this segment. X1, X3, X4, X5, X6, X7? Will the X1 “coupe” be an X-Drive0.5?
