BMW’S Plan for Range-Topping X7 SUV cancelled

BMW

Due to economic problems in the US and Europe, Norbert Reithofer, BMW’S CEO, has announced that BMW will no longer continue its plan to build a larger sport-ute to surpass the range currently occupied by the X3, X5, and X6 crossovers, as sales of SUVs are dropping at a fast rate. 

Other reports state that the plan has been replaced in Munich with a smaller crossover which will be based on the 1-Series platform, enabling BMW to expand the X range with an X1 instead of an X7. The company probably made a good decision by directing its attention towards a vehicle that is smaller, lighter and more fuel efficient, not towards bigger, heavier and greater guzzler vehicles.
