A tradition already in our few years existence, BMWBLOG team is crossing the ocean to attend the 2010 Paris Motor Show. In the past years, our team has brought you exclusive coverage from all the major European and North American auto shows, and this year, we make no exception. Joining us this time are our colleagues Benny at BimmerToday.de and Gabriela at BMWBLOG.ro. Coverage begins on Thursday, September 30th.
With an impressive line-up to be displayed in Paris, BMW’s booth is expected to be busier than ever. The Munich-based company will bring out their big guns at the last major auto show of the year.
First in line, the new BMW 6 Series Coupe. Introduced in a concept form, the new 6 Series showcases the latest design trends at BMW. Second, second generation BMW X3 makes its worldwide debut as well and a lot of expectations and sales forecasts are being built into the redesigned midsize premium SAV. Third, the BMW Gran Coupe Concept which made its world debut in Beijing. Next in line, a series of BMW vehicles sporting the M Sport Package, including the beautiful 5 Series Touring.
Technology and gadgets will play an important role this year for BMW, so ConnectedDrive team will showcase some of the latest innovation in the mobile arena. Expect to see some cool stuff being demoed, including some of the features that will come to the U.S.
As always, we will be present to report live all the news in the BMW world, including several interviews with key BMW designers and product managers. We are pushing the envelope this year. We have scheduled 10 interviews with 6 Series Coupe, Gran Coupe and X3 designers, a product manager for BMW Vision EfficientDynamics Full Runner, Anders Warming, Head of Exterior Design and ConnectedDrive product owner.
But this is not all. To find out more about BMW’s latest design, current and future trends, and upcoming changes in BMW vehicles, we will sit down once again with Adrian Van Hooydonk, Senior VP BMW Group Design. It has been close to a year since our last interview at Detroit Auto Show and we are excited to find out what has changed in the last year at BMW and where is the new design language headed to. As the previous designer of 6 Series, Van Hooydonk will share with us the ideas behind the new 6 Series Coupe Concept.
Ad-hoc photos will be provided via Twitter, with full high-res galleries following shortly.
