BMW X8 flagship under consideration

BMW X8 flagship under considerationWell, the market seems to suggest they are, so the carmakers can only oblige what the people want. We’ve seen brands expanding their range of SUVs at both ends, one such example being Audi with the Q2 mini crossover, and the upcoming Q8 luxury coupe SUV.

“The sector is growing fast, so there will be opportunity,” said Fröhlich. “It is early to talk about X8, but one of the first decisions I made when I worked on product strategy was to take the X5 and make the X6. Everyone said it was not necessary, but it worked.

As for the platform, a long-wheelbase version could complicate the choice of architecture. Autocar’s report suggests a mix of BMW’s new CLAR platform, which the X7 will utilize, and Rolls-Royce’s aluminum structure could be a solution.

“There is room for X8 – especially in markets like China – but there are no decisions yet. Each car must have a distinct character, and these are the sort of areas that take time to evaluate.”
