BMW discreetly ceases production of 6 Series Coupe

BMW discreetly ceases production of 6 Series Coupe

BMW has silently pulled the plug on the 6 Series Coupe back in February. The reasons for discontinuing the production of Coupe body style is guessed to be poor sales compared to the Gran Coupe and Convertible. Right now, it is unclear whether BMW would choose to bring back the 6-Series Coupe back with a facelift or a minor upgrade. The 6 Series Gran Coupe and the Convertible are still in production though.

The Bavarian carmaker introduced the current generation 6 Series line-up in 2012 with the four-door Gran Coupe guise joining a year later. The line-up got a minor cosmetic update just a few months back, followed suit by the 4 Series. It is likely that these upgrades will also make its way into the lower models as well. It was reported earlier that the four-door 4 Series Gran Coupe was the highest selling car in the range, and same is the case with the 6 Series now. With the Coupe losing its charm to the practical Gran Coupe, BMW might have considered it prudent to cease production of the current 6 Series until the new generation arrives.

Speaking of the new generation, BMW has plans of introducing a new product line-up by 2020 including new electric vehicles and mid-life updates to current-generation vehicles. Meanwhile, the word on the streets is that the 6 Series range will be reduced to make way for new 8 Series. The test mule of the all-new 8 Series (or the new 6 Series) was spotted undergoing cold weather testing a few months ago. Interestingly, there are also rumours that the new generation 5 Series GT will be replaced with a more spacious, and better looking 6 Series Gran Turismo.

What’s certain is that BMW is on an interesting model offensive for the next few years, with an equal balance of electric, performance and luxury vehicles. As far as the 6 Series Coupe is concerned, you can still buy them from dealers with available stocks, or in its home country, Germany, where it is reportedly still in production for an undetermined period.
