Besides China, Japan is one of the most important markets in Asia and plays an equally important role for BMW. In the Japanese metro city, BMW presents – next to the M4 GTS and various versions of the luxurious 7 Series and the new X1 – a wide range of plug-in hybrids and electric vehicles.
Vehicles like the BMW Active Tourer 225xe, BMW X5 xDrive40e and 330e emphasizes the future mobility strategy the Bavarians have put in place.
Familiar faces – BMW i8 and i3 – are also on the show’s floor and are always an attraction for visitors and press media.
ALPINA also joined BMW in Tokyo, not surprisingly considering Asia is such an important market for them. The new ALPINA D3 BiTurbo and X3D highlight the product diversification offered by the Buchloe-based automaker.
