RUMOR: All-New BMW 3 Series Will Only Arrive By 2027



It would make sense to introduce the new 3 Series (expected to use the G50/G51 codenames) with a mix of ICE, hybrid, and electric powertrains. We’ve already seen that the new X3 will be made available with a plug-in hybrid derivative, so we can expect the same with the G50/G51.For now, it’s unclear how BMW will approach the future lineup. Perhaps more developed, EV-friendly regions (such as Europe) will only receive the electric variant, whereas markets like North America will receive both ICE and EV variants. This would leave the cheaper and more conventional models (think 320i, 330e) to developing markets such as Brazil, India, and South Africa, all of which are strong markets for BMW.The first vehicle underpinned by the Neue Klasse platform will sail down the production line in 2025 at the company’s Debrecen plant in Hungary, with German production expected to commence a year later. In the meantime, BMW fans can expect the G20 3 Series to receive another update in 2024, to keep the C-Class rival as fresh as possible.
