BMW Plans to Show a Neue Classe SUV This Week

Say hello to the next little electric X

  • BMW’s next electric crossover about to be revealed

  • First X-model in the Neue Klasse concept series


BMW’s next generation of electric vehicles is just about here. The Vision NeueKlasseX is the latest look at those new models, and we’ll get to see it in full later this week.

BMW’s move to electric vehicles hasn’t gotten the most attention, but it has been thorough and it has been comprehensive. But for the last few years, it has been the promise of the Neue Klasse that has had BMW execs and PR really excited for the EV future.

Neue Klasse is German for New Class, and this is the second time the company has used the name. The first was for an absolute revolution at the brand beginning in 1962 when it began to transform from pre-war-style models and superminis like the Isetta into what is recognizable as a modern BMW.

Neue Klasse introduced the models that would become the iconic 2000, and introduced the Hoffmeister Kink design element that’s still used today. The modern Vision Neue Klasse is a concept that looks to make the same level of leap into the EV era.

The Vision Neue Klasse X is the first X, or crossover, variant of the Neue Klasse lineup. Rumours have it coming to production as a new iX3, but the rear pillar visible in BMW’s teaser has some very strong X2 vibes.

Whatever the result, we’ll see it soon. This X hits the spot on March 21. The production of Neue Klasse cars is expected at dealers in 2025.
