Whether or not you liked the X6, BMW says that sales of the car have had such a significant success that they are considering a smaller version of it – the X4. BMW said it has sold 80,000 units of the X6 since launch so it only makes sense to do a smaller, more affordable model.
A source told AutoCar that the company is considering a smaller car in the same mold as the X6, likely to take the X4 name. However, the model has yet to be given the green light by executives.
“We haven’t made any firm decision,” said a source, “however, the X6’s success shows there is a continued demand for sporty off-roaders.”
The BMW X4, if approved, will be built on the X3 platform.
