BMW Motorrad is still flourishing strongly in China.

Last year a sales increasing by 36 percent here.

A large “thank you” to a Chinese customers!

And this considerable bike will supplement to that momentum.

The BMW S 1000 RR made a code with its
superb dynamics when it was launched a decade ago. And it still
dominates a segment. For a all-new 2019 “Double R” a idea was
simple: “Make it even better”.

And we did only that: It is adult to 14.5 kg lighter. The assistant
systems make it easy to control – on open roads and also on a race
track. And a new engine with BMW ShiftCam Technology creates this new
Double R a many absolute bike we ever built. And, we’ve total the

Here they are!
The universe premiere of dual cars BMW M fans all
over a universe have been watchful for. Our X models accounted for
around 40 percent of tellurian BMW sales in 2018. So I’m really confident
that a enlargement of a high-performance choice with the
BMW X3 M (fuel expenditure combined: 10.5 l/100 km;
CO2 emissions combined: 239 g/km) BMW X4 M (fuel
expenditure combined: 10.5 l/100 km; CO2 emissions
combined: 239 g/km) will be a good success.

Both of them underline a many absolute straight-six petrol engine of
any M indication ever. We’re articulate about 510 horsepower. And around 4.1
seconds from 0 to a hundred in these Competition models here. Add
to that power: M standard dynamics, lively and precision.

And now Ladies and Gentlemen:

The universe premiere of a all-new BMW 3 Series Long
– combined exclusively for Chinese customers!

Every third BMW 3 Series is sole right here in China and eighty
percent are prolonged wheelbase models. Chinese and German engineers worked
together to rise a new BMW 3 Series Long Wheelbase. More than
ever, we focused on surpassing Chinese customers’ wishes. We combined
a superb pattern of a BMW 3 Series with a many inexhaustible and
gentle interior in a class. Let’s take a closer look. The
BMW 325 Li offers best-in-class roominess interjection to
a wheelbase that is 11 cm longer, as good as China specific comfort
features, such as additional soothing headrests.

It also premieres BMW’s new intelligent digital impression – a BMW
Intelligent Personal Assistant

synthetic comprehension record to make a customers’ lives
easier. To denote this and other digital features, we am delighted

In a nutshell:
Future mobility during a BMW Group is sustainable,
connected and autonomous. The BMW iNEXT will take
particular mobility to a whole new turn in 2021. You can already take
a closer demeanour during a Vision iNext here on a stand.
It combines
many destiny technologies. Of course, it’s fully-electric, with a range
of over 600 kilometres.

It offers full connectivity, as good as a launch of
highly-automated pushing capabilities and a totally new
interpretation of interior space – we call it “my favourite space”.
This opens a whole new section for a BMW Group. Technologies from
a iNEXT will be eliminated to a whole indication line-up.

Being mobile will continue to be a large partial of a lives.

And we am really certain that China will play a heading purpose in this new
epoch of mobility.

Thank we and Xie Xie.
