Report: An SUV is not in the future for BMW i

Many have been wondering how far BMW is going to take their new i brand following the launch of their new i3 city car and i8 sports hybrid. And recently, Australia’s CarAdvice.com recently spoke with BMW’s i3 project manager, Roland Kowalski, regarding plans for future models.

As of now, an SUV had been rumored, though Kowalski replied that an SUV in the i lineup doesn’t suit the brand’s philosophy despite the fact that BMW has patented the model numbers from i1 through to i9.

Though instead an SUV, the idea of an “urban concept” for megacities has been tossed around. Otherwise, the i3 serve’s up BMW’s idea of an efficient yet, practical city runabout.
