What you thought would never happen to the BMW X6...

Quote:
BMW AG chief executive officer, Mr. Norbert Reithofer, announced today that the BMW X6 had been already sold out for this year. According to him, BMW plans to produce 40,000 units in average worldwide in a full production year during the product's lifecycle. Half of the worldwide production quota will be reserved for U.S sales.

Surprising that the X6 is sold out? Well, not really, most of the U.S dealerships sold their cars within the first week and there is a waiting list already at some of them. Wait until the X6 xDrive50 hits the showrooms….Do you remember the article I have posted about BMW X6 vs Porsche Cayenne and Range Rover ? It was based on an internal BMW document which compared the above cars head-to-head. The article made waves all over the web and it has been bashed by many people. Like here

No one really believed that the X6 will be such an outstanding car. I remember talking to a BMW employee that had the opportunity to test the car back in January and his exact words were: "Everyone will be blown away by the performance and handling of this new model, there is simply no other car in its class that will match up".

If you haven't had the chance to drive one, call your local dealers and maybe you'll find one that you can drive.

Update: Just to clear out the confusion, by SOLD OUT, BMW meant being sold out from the factory to the dealers. There are still dealers that have some X6's on the lot, but many of them don't, based on the area and the market they are in.

BMW X6: SOLD OUT !

I knew I wasn't the only one who was crazy!

I fell in LOVE with this car when it came out... I absolutely LOVE the aggressive shape of the car... the super sloped rear end that has high and muscular shoulders with fatty rubber exposed under the bumper.

It seems though a LOT of car enthusiasts hate this car...

lol i guess # of cars manufactured = # of ppl as crazy as me!!

The X6 has only 1.5 more cubic feet of cargo capacity than a 535xi wagon..
X6 35i curb weight: 4,894 lbs
535xi wagon curb weight: 4,100 lbs

The 535xi offers better acceleration, better fuel economy, similar interior dimensions (the 535 offers marginally more rear head and leg room), and better handling (due to 800 lbs less curb weight and lower center of gravity)...

The X5 is for people who don't like the wagon image and will compromise some performance for extra ground clearance & utility value. I'm not sure who the X6 is for...

So a lot of the American market? This is truly a car built for Americans. They should just send the whole production amount here. The rest of the world will just buy wagons.

That's crazy! I was just at the BMW factory in SC and saw nothing but x6's. All of the cars (SAV's) comming off the assembly line were x6's. I was telling my friend why are they producing so much it's not going to sell! Well I guess I am wrong.
