The current-generation F15 X5 has been in production since 2014 so this announcement would mean a production lifecycle at least two years shorter than most other models in BMW’s range. The increasing competition in this sector as well as new, technologically advanced models from rivals may have spurred this move. Mr. Kruger went on to say that we would see the , codenamed G05 as early as next month. Based on the CLAR architecture that underpins most new models, the platforms use of high-strength steel, aluminum and carbon fiber that should see a weight reduction over the outgoing model.
