Huge rumor coming from Autocar UK today. According to sources close to the brand and to the magazine, based on the high success of the BMW X6 has raised the possibility of an X4 at BMW.
BMW sold more than double the X6 units predicted and has recently surpassed the 80,000 units worldwide since its launch.
The BMW source revealed to Autocar that a smaller car in the same mold as the X6, likely to take the X4 name, was under consideration, but it had yet to be given the green light for production.
“We haven’t made any firm decision,” said our source, “however, the X6′s success shows there is a continued demand for sporty off-roaders.”

The rumor and assumptions continue with the platform the X4 could be based one. The X4 could be spun off the new X3′s platform which in fact it’s buil on the next generation 3 Series platform. The exterior design could be based on the 2001′s X Coupe Concept, as well as the X6. This in our opinion can simply be not be true since the latest models indicate a new design language for BMW as they move forward in the Adrian Van Hooydonk era.
For now, we are taking this rumor with a big grain of salt, but we will continue to do our due dillegence and find out more about this potential new X product.
