It is official now! BMW has announced that it will expand the Series 2 product range by adding a four-door Gran Coupé model through a brief statement and a mysterious image below. Known as a global product, the new BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe will join the coupe and two-door convertible, not to mention the M2 high performance. It will put a special emphasis on design to attract a new type of modern and urban consumers, says the manufacturer. Although the company keeps quiet about its technical details, it is safe to for us to guess that the 245 hp four-cylinder turbocharged engines will be offered. And unlike the Gran Coupé Series 4 and Series 6, which rely exclusively on an eight-speed automatic, there is a good chance that a six-speed manual is also available. The xDrive all-wheel drive should of course be available as an optional package. The new BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe will be unveiled at the world premiere at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November and it will hit the market in the spring of 2020. In addition, BMW warned its shareholders that profits in 2019 will be much lower than last year due to the rising raw material prices, higher costs to comply with stricter emissions standards and unfavorable fluctuation of the exchange rates. Various restructure plans will be implemented, but there is no one will lose the job. Another interesting news is a few days ago, we learned that the BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce brands will be grouped together in one sales division. Then Wednesday, the Associated Press revealed that half of the many engines offered by the manufacturer will be eliminated to reduce the complexity of vehicles and range.
