According tomedia reports, perhaps it is best not to continue to understand the car projects banned due to the new corona virus pandemic – because it will only strengthen the “could have” feeling. But it sounds like BMW’s i8’s successor is not under discussion. BMW has shelved the development of the new car because of the new crown virus, according to a report published in late April by Germany’s Manager Magazin.
Under these circumstances, lower-selling sports cars are not usually the best investment for carmakers, and BMW may have a negative reaction to a sports car because of world concerns about the future of the global economy. The report said costs were the main reason automakers abandoned the program. Of course, it is not clear whether this is true.
A BMW representative stressed that the Vision M Next “is not a concept car for a particular model, but a design study that was presented at several auto shows last year” and further commented on media speculation.
