2015 BMW M3 front

BMW M product head denies BMW M3 Touring plans

June 18, 2015

The BMW M3 Touring is being wildly rendered, rumoured and speculated, but a report from Autovisie finally clears the air about the possibility of the same.

Speaking to the Dutch publication, Carsten Pries, Head of Product Management BMW M Division, clearly denied any possibilities of introducing an estate version of the BMW M3. BMW seemingly is not threatened by the Audi RS4 Avant and the Mercedes-AMG C63 Estate.

According to the report, Mr. Pries said that the reason that the company is not interested in an estate version of the M3 is that it won’t succeed globally. It has a potential market in Central Europe, but not much elsewhere, he added.

A condition that an M-model must meet in order to be launched, is that there must be a potential demand for the same globally, he implied.

So, that’s it. A BMW M3 Touring won’t be a reality in the foreseeable future.
