There is also another surprise in store for us and that has to do with future mobility. Some of the German media has already hinted at that and we can say today with a high degree of certainty that we will learn more about BMW’s plans in hydrogen technology.
Just a few months ago, Forbes reported on BMW’s hydrogen plans which could revolve around an X5 model. The report mentioned that BMW plans on launching a test BMW X5 early in the next decade followed by another, more refined version in 2025.
BMW has been working on fuel-cell technology with Toyota for quite some time. The two automotive giants signed an agreement a long time ago and a lot of people forgot about it because tangible results haven’t made it out on the market so far.

Aside from the vehicles already listed above, the M and i brand will have their own products on display, but with no major surprises.
MINI will finally debut the Cooper Se, which is inline with the major electric unveils in Frankfurt, including the Porsche Taycan.
