The rumors about BMW’s new flagship SUV X8 can be traced back to four years ago. During these four years, netizens all over the world were guessing the appearance and positioning of the car. It was not until a month ago that the chairman of BMW vaguely announced the existence of the new SUV. After all, the test car had been photographed by foreign media more than once. It is understood that the BMW X8 will be officially unveiled at the end of this year.
Recently, some foreign media have drawn a group of rendering drawings of BMW X8 according to the spy photos previously exposed. From the pictures, it can be seen that the new car will adopt the latest design language of BMW family, especially this unique split headlamp group. The next generation of 7 series and X7 may adopt the same design. The new car is not equipped with the same longitudinal double kidney grille as the BMW IX and 4 series, but the size of the intake grille of the BMW X8 is not small, accounting for almost half of the front face.
The positioning of the new car is a little sporty, so the sliding back roof and four side exhaust are designed to improve its sporty temperament. However, the new car is not equipped with the popular through tail lamp set. At first glance, it looks like an enlarged version of X6.
In terms of power, in addition to the traditional fuel engine, BMW X8 will also provide models equipped with plug-in hybrid system. The top sports model code named “project Rockstar” is expected to be equipped with a “dual core” configuration of V8 engine + motor, and the comprehensive output power will reach 515kw (700 HP).
