German magazine Auto Motor Und Sport reports that BMW will take on the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show with four new models. On their home turf, the Munich-based automaker will introduce to the public the 2012 BMW M5 which is set for a media debut on June 21st.

The new 2012 BMW 1 Series Hatchback, scheduled for launch in two weeks, will also make its public debut at the German car show. Launched first in three and five-door variants, the F20 1 Series delivers a bolder exterior design, a revamped cabin and new engine offerings.

To sustain their lightweight philosophy, BMW will introduce the M3 EVO, the E90 sedan that makes extensive use of carbon fiber and other lightweight materials. The E90 M3 EVO will be unveiled on June 23rd at the M Festival. The power output will be between the “regular” M3 and the M3 GTS, so somewhere between 420 and 450 horsepower.

The star of the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show will be the BMW i3 Concept, a preview of BMW’s first mass-production electric vehicle that comes to market in 2013. A fleet of i3 models will be joining the BMW official cars at the 2012 London Olympics.

The 2013 BMW i3 is slated to feature a 150 PS (110 kW / 148 bhp) electric motor that enables the car to hit a top speed of 160 km/h (100 mph) and travel approximately 257 km (160 miles) on a single charge.

Update: The BMW 5 Series Active Hybrid will be introduced as well.

    They forgot to mention the BMW Active Hybrid 5.

    Let me see…
    From the above, I only see 2 new models, the others being new versions of existing models.

      M5 – New
      i3 – New
      1er – New
      3 EVO – yes, semi-new, a tuned up, pimped out M3.

      You get the idea…

      • Otto

        Well, I’d say the M5 is the M version of the 5er. Same for the 3er EVO which is a M version of the 3er.
        Cause if you go that way, there will be much more models introduced at the IAA by BMW (i.e all the different versions of the 1er)

  • Frederico Silva

    Sooo, we’ll have a very very busy month of June. NICE :D

  • Postie

    I understand that we may see the new F20 1 Series as early as this weekend….(4th/5th June)

    • http://www.bmwblog.com Horatiu B.

      Maybe. We can’t confirm.

    There is more than the “four” when you count additional models and innovations – BMW 640d Coupe / BMW 6er xDrive , BMW 6er Coupe/Cabrio M-Sport. 

     The Roll out of N20 for the Z4, 5er and X3 unlike NYIAS it will not be a regular models with 28i badges and the hood upopenable.  In production terms… It is the 1er’s show and every example will be on show in Hall 11. 

    The Concept will be in the form of the BMW i3 as IAA will be the official public launch of the BMWi brand. 
    It will also see the final European show for the 3er Sedan prior to the November launch and Geneva World Premiere.

    Of course that is not all.
