BMW of North America has just issued an official statement regarding the latest internet buzz on the new BMW 5 Series Touring not being offered in North America.
Unfortunately, our assumptions have been confirmed, the new F11 5 Series Sports Wagon will not be available for U.S. customers. The decision comes based on the current sales volume, as we hinted yesterday.
Official Statement BMW of North America:
Is BMW NA planning to offer the new 5 Series Sports Wagon in the USA?
No. BMW NA does not plan to offer the next generation 5 Series Sports Wagon (Touring) in the US.
BMW of North America has a long history of promoting the Sports Wagon concept. We currently offer two Sports Wagon models in the 3 Series line and one model in the 5 Series line. Since 1992, the 5 Series Sports Wagon has enjoyed a loyal and enthusiastic customer base, but the current sales volume has dropped to point where it is difficult to justify the business case to develop the new generation for importation to the US.
