The BMW Group is the only import brand currently exhibiting at the Busan Motor Show in South Korea. Alternating with the Seoul Mobility Show, the event was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic, but is now back for 2022 with some local premieres. The leader is undoubtedly the 7-Series G70, presented as the all-electric i7 xDrive60.

BMW South Korea also celebrated the local launch of the second-generation 2 Series Active Tourer minivan, while the production version of the 650-hp XM was shown behind closed doors to a select group of people. Other notable products include the facelifted M850i ​​Gran Coupe, M240i xDrive, M4 Convertible xDrive and X3 M Competition.

MINI is also attending the show with a JCW Anniversary Edition and the electric Pacesetter, while BMW Motorrad presented the first-ever M bike at the Busan Motor Show – the M 1000 RR in the 50 Years M Anniversary livery. CE 04 electric scooter and chic R 18 Transcontinental grand tourer join performance motorcycling in South Korea.

In total, BMW Group has no less than 21 products on display at the Busan Exhibition and Convention Center (BEXO) in Centum City, Haeundae-gu until the end of the show on Sunday, July 24. Locals would say the biggest star of the show isn’t the i7, but rather the Hyundai Ioniq 6 electric sedan. The rival BMW i4 makes its world premiere at the show where Hyundai’s luxury division, Genesis, showcased the GV60 SUVs , GV70 and GV80.

After what seemed like an endless series of cancellations, the first major international auto show is scheduled for mid-October at the Paris Motor Show. It remains to be seen whether BMW will exhibit fresh metal in La Ville Lumière.
