Midrand – The 2013 Johannesburg International Motor Show (JIMS) will see both the present and future of driving pleasure converge in the new models presented by BMW South Africa.
JIMS, which takes place from 16 to 27 October this year, will be the platform to showcase the new BMW i3 which is scheduled to be introduced in South Africa in 2014. With its passenger cell made from carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) and BMW eDrive technology designed to deliver zero-emission driving, the first series-produced model from the BMW i brand heralds a new era in mobility.
A new chapter in the history of elegantly sporty, two-door BMWs, meanwhile, will begin with the BMW 4 Series Coupe at the 2013 JIMS. The new model embodies the ultimate in aesthetic appeal and driving pleasure in the premium mid-size segment. Likewise setting the pace in its class will be the new BMW 5 Series Sedan and Gran Turismo.
Also on show at the 2013 JIMS will be the locally produced BMW 3 Series Sedan and the recently launched BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo. Opening up a new dimension of dynamics with impressively powerful engines from BMW’s M Performance and M Division will be the BMW M135i, BMW M5 Sedan as well as the BMW M6 Gran Coupé with the new Competition Package.
The BMW Z4, which represents an alluringly contemporary interpretation of the traditional roadster concept, will also be at the 2013 JIMS.
Showcasing BMW Group’s groundbreaking EfficientDynamics innovations, and taking the development of intelligent hybrid drive systems to the next level, will be the BMW ActiveHybrid 7.
And of course, what is a motor show without a few surprises? Well, motoring enthusiasts will have to visit the combined BMW, BMW i and MINI stand in Hall 6 next month to find out.
