The beauty of attending media days at the auto shows across the world is the abundance of information that are being released, either through press conferences or simply talking to BMW executives, designers and other personnel.

Being at the New York International Auto Show, we had the opportunity to learn more about future plans and products. What we learned was that in 2009, BMW will launch in the U.S seven brand new models, and by launching, they are referring at vehicles available at the BMW dealerships. In 2010, another fifteen new products will be available, a total of 26 new models, including four facelifts.

BMW to launch 22 products in 2009 and 2010

Since BMW does not comment on future products, we had to work our magic and see what we can find out. What we know for sure is that the 7 new products this year are:

  1. BMW 5 Series GT – available in the fall
  2. BMW 760Li
  3. BMW 7 Series Hybrid – in the fall
  4. BMW X6 Hybrid – in the fall
  5. BMW Z4 – in May
  6. BMW X5 M
  7. BMW X6 M

It is worth mentioning the BMW X1 which will launch in the summer, but it’s only available in Europe for now. BMW has not completely ruled out the possibility of bringing it to the U.S in the future, of course, based on the economy state and other factors.

Even though we don’t have confirmation on all the models launching in 2010, we will go ahead and try to guess them based on what we learned so far and other rumors we heard. First, the new redesigned BMW X3 will make its debut in January 2010, followed shortly in the spring by the 2010 BMW 5 Series. The new BMW 6 Series models will make their entrance next year as well.

One of the most exciting vehicles launching in 2010 is the BMW 135i Supersports, an M1 replacement without the M badge. Several other 1 Series variants are expected to launch next year, but unfortunately no solid information on which type of vehicles.

Project i will deliver a vehicle as well, but it is still too early to speculate on that.

The next two to three years are going to be quite exciting for BMW, many different models are being launched, some more accepted than others, but it is clear that BMW is looking forward to expand their market and reach a broader demographic. As usual, as soon as we hear more, you will see them here first.

    Thats an awsome amount of new vehcles for one year. I just wished the CS was among these… that would have added the spice to the line-up.

  • P.wong

    like if they had the balls to produce the 5 gt,x5m,x6m,why in the hell dont they do the same for the CS? like come on , they must know by now that bmw fanatics want that car…

  • Darko

    hmm… not as exiting as new audi lineup!!

  • Lee

    By Fall, on the GT, do you really mean Sept; Oct; or Nov. in US show rooms?

  • Gord

    I’m really interested in what the new 6 series will be. It has not got alot of attention lately, compared to the new 5 series.

    when the new 6 series come out,you can wait for 6 series gt which will be the some version of cs concept,the comcomparator to cls ,panamera….
    i pray for z4 coupe…maybe 1 series sedan?

  • viper

    not exciting at all for me……I dont see a concept CS there nor a supercar…..I think audis list is much better , not to say MBs they are coming with a brand new cls and a brand new supercar sls amg that is replaing slr….something that good and powerful BMW never had and never will , they dont even have a four door coupe , hell even volkswagen has passat cc

  • Barry

    1SERIES SUPER SPORTS FTW!!

    @viper: I agree with you dude,bmw’s new projects suck,while those of audi are really good.Who gives a fuck about a 5gt or even another super sports coupe for which i see no place at all.What should it be faster than a M car ?The 135i is already fast enough for that.

  • patricksixer

    LOL @ the Audi fans trolling…!

    BMW is here to make money, not to provide wet dreams for E36-driving teenagers. Thus, they cut the CS Concept, M3 CSL, etc. It pisses me off too. But other cars like the mid-engine “green” supercar are certainly not off the table…who knows if that one is real, but you get the point, you never know until it’s about to actually happen. They might revive those first two anyway in some form.

    I really want to see what the new 5er and 6er look like…I think they have huge potential, I like what I’ve seen so far.

    @patricksixer: Just wanted to tell you that im a die hard fan of Bmw but when i see the R8 it just pisses me off.Bmw should make a supercar at all costs dude fuck,its the ultimate driving machine.

  • Matski

    @L1ndja: Maybe you should clarify “bmw’s new projects suck,while those of audi are really good”… which of BMW’s current projects suck, and which of Audi’s are really good?

  • Otto

    You’re mixing up models and versions. There are only 2 new models on that list : the 5 GT and the Z4. The others are new versions of existing models
