BMW Chief Engineer interviewed...

07.16.2008: http://www.auto-motor-und-sport.de/n...3979_13987.hbs

Here's a quick summary of the interesting parts:

-No electric engine for the 7 series
-No hydrogen powered 7 series planned due to lacking hydrogen infrastructure
-The X1 will be shown this year

-The E93 has been the most successfull convertible so far, so there probably won't be another soft top 3 series any time soon.
-They are happy with the current 3 series line up. No changes planned.
-There won't be an opponent for the Audi R8... No high powered middle engine super sports car is planned
-There will NOT be a CSL - "we are happy with our current M3 line up".
-The opponent for the CLS and A7 will be the PAS, which is based on the 5 series
-The CS concept was "very close to reality"... Meaning it will probably look like that when it goes in production
-They have a development cooperation with Daimler for hybrid technology

dun dun duuuunnnn
