Another week and more photos of a new BMW concept, the PAS, short for Progressive Activity Sedan, a car that we have talked about in the past and gave some full details on what BMW wants to achieve with this new model.

If you’re still wondering about this whole PAS deal, here is an excerpt from that article:

The Progressive Activity Sedan is an individual solution for the progressive individual who has become bored of a regular sedan and SUV but with no compromise on driver enjoyment. ”

and if you were thinking about comparing the Progressive Activity Sedan to the Mercedes R-Klasse, here is the answer:

What will the Progressive Activity Sedan offer over a regular MPV or SUV?
Individuality and function partnered with a very exciting range of petrol and diesel engines and optional efficient platforms. Individual dynamics and agility will make this a vehicle that does more than stand out because of it’s design. In which it is very design orientated , crisp sharp lines , shallow glasshouse , very aerodynamic swooping roof in the form of a coupe , long bonnet more like a car.

As far as the new photos that popped up today on GlobalMotors, nothing really new there, still the heavy-camouflaged test mule and no sign of the pattern camo, usually typical to the FEP stages.

The rumors, (yes, we speculate again, I apologize) is that the concept will be unveiled at the begining of next year, with a production ready model coming out in 2010.

    So, the business case for the PAS is boredom?

    PS: :D

    this strikes me as an X6 sedan. :)

    I know somebody who has seen the car undisguised (BMW dealer MD) and when describing it I got the impression it has a similar kind of boot as the Skoda Superb. He also said it’s rather strange and screwed his finger against the side of his head!

    It seems like BMW is about to launch the car no one asked for.
    Not my favorite new model at the moment-

  • George

    This car is absolutely pointless. I would buy the 5 series Touring over that piece of junk.

    @Brookside:

    Word, I’d still love to see the internal documents explaining the business case for this vehicle. X6? Maybe I can understand that, I don’t necessarily agree, but I can see the reasoning.

    This? Well, I’m a very progressive individual and I enjoy very progressive vehicles and I’m tired of a regular sedan or SUV – but this car has ZERO appeal to me – I worry the PAS will go the likely route of the Porsche Panamera – which is down the tubes.
