2023 was all about new EV technology for BMW, with a few new electric concept cars making their debut. The next few years look as though they’ll be exciting for the brand, read on for everything coming soon from BMW. 

New BMW Models coming in 2024

New BMW 4 Series and M4

Facelifted versions of both the BMW 4 Series and M4 have been revealed, although changes to these coupes are pretty minimal if you go by looks alone.

New BMW M4 front

You get some tweaked headlights with a new daytime running light design, and the grille has a slightly different design as well. Some new taillights and a tweaked rear bumper complete the look.

More significant changes have been made under the bonnet, where you will no longer find a diesel engine. Along with the axing of oil burners, the M4’s 3.0-litre straight six has been boosted from 510hp to 530hp.

New BMW M4 CS

As well as the updated M4, there is now a more hardcore BMW M4 CS. It acts as a middle ground between the standard M4 Competition and the bonkers limited-run M4 CSL, offering some of the latter’s track-focussed goodies while not being quite as compromised on the road.

You get the CSL’s 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged straight-six engine, so it puts out 550hp and 650Nm of torque. The CS is also a touch lighter than the Competition thanks to some carbon fibre body panels.

You’ll be able to order your new M4 CS from the end of May, with prices starting from £117,100. Beyond the added power and upgraded suspension, you also get more aggressive styling.

New BMW Z4 Handschalter

The BMW Z4 is a great convertible sports car, but for proper driving enthusiasts the lack of a third pedal may be a turn off. Well BMW has solved this problem with the Z4 Handschalter; a special edition with a manual gearbox.

Beyond the new ‘box, this new Z4 is available in a bespoke Frozen Deep Green colour with a brown leather interior, and it gets a specially-tuned chassis for added agility.

Prices for the Handschalter start from £60,675, meaning you pay a £3,000 premium to row your own gears.

New BMW M3 and M3 Touring

The BMW M3 is also getting an update this year, but don’t expect any major changes. The front end styling will be slightly tweaked, with revised headlights similar to those found on the new BMW M4.

The 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged straight-six isn’t going anywhere, although expect it to produce the same 530hp as its coupe counterpart.

The main changes are expected to come inside with some new infotainment software. This could be similar to the system found in the new BMW 5 Series which has been made easier to use.

New BMW M2 CS

Hot on the heels of the new BMW M2’s debut, a hardcore CS version has already been spotted testing. You’ll probably have to wait around a year for this model and it looks like it’ll be a bit more aggressive-looking than the standard car.

New BMW M2 CS front

You can see through the camouflage that it has a deeper front splitter, bigger side skirts and a large ducktail spoiler, as well as some big alloy wheels. You can also expect some additional sporty trinkets on the interior.

The CS is likely to retain the same 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged straight-six as the standard car, although it could be tuned to get close to the 510hp you get from the BMW M3 Competition.

New BMW 1 Series and M135i

BMW’s smallest car is getting an update later this year, and a new version of the hot M135i is also coming. These spy shots show a car with quad tailpipes, meaning it could be a more powerful M140i version.

New BMW 1 Series rear

The current M135i has 306hp from it’s 2.0-litre turbocharged engine. This new car could have as much as 320hp. As for the standard 1 Series, expect to see the same range of 1.5 and 2.0-litre petrol engines on offer.

The new 1 Series will get a series of subtle design tweaks, which is likely to include revised bumpers and new lights.

New BMW M5

The seventh-generation BMW M5 is also on its way, and development is full steam ahead. Prototypes have been spotted out and about a few times now.

New BMW M5 front

It’s highly likely that this new super-saloon will get a plug-in hybrid setup, possibly shared with the XM SUV. This would mean a 4.4-litre V8 paired with an electric motor, with up to 650hp and 800Nm of torque possible.

Expect to see the M5 saloon debut in 2024, but if you can’t wait that long, why not see our renders to see how we think the next M5 will look?

New BMW M5 Touring

There hasn’t been a BMW M5 Touring since the V10 E61 from the mid 2000s. This is about to change though as BMW has now confirmed that the new M5 will be available as an estate.

This move makes sense after the launch of BMW’s first ever M3 Touring this year. Styling details at the front remains the same as the saloon, and it’s set to retain the quad tailpipes at the rear as well.

Under the bonnet will be the same V8 hybrid system as the saloon as well, although it may be a touch slower thanks to added weight. If this car does come to fruition, expect to see it launched at the beginning of 2025.

New BMW models coming in 2025

New BMW Vision Neue Klasse

This is the BMW Vision Neue Klasse, and it’s a concept car which builds on the design of the i Vision Dee from last year. This retro-looking saloon is a look ahead to what a future BMW 3 Series could look like.

New BMW Neue Klasse front

As well as having a wild-looking exterior, the Neue Klasse has plenty of revolutionary tech on the inside. There’s a huge panoramic display across the bottom of the windscreen, as well as a central touchscreen.

Under the skin there’s some new battery technology which could boost range by up to 30% over existing BMW EVs. Expect to see a road-ready model based on this concept in 2025.

New BMW Neue Klasse X/iX3

The first car to be based on the Neue Klasse platform has been spotted testing, the iX3 electric SUV. You can see a similar front-end design to the Neue Klasse X concept is lurking under that wrap, and it has a pretty sleek design for an SUV.

New BMW iX3 front

Being based on BMW’s new electric car platform, you can expect to see some clever new battery tech with more range and faster charging. BMW claims this new tech will yield a 30% increase in range compared to current BMW EVs, meaning the new iX3 could manage 380 miles on a charge.

Cars based on the Neue Klasse concept are due to start going on sale in 2025, and that’s likely to apply to the new iX3 as well. If you fancy this new electric SUV, expect to part with around £70,000, a modest increase over the current iX3.
