The BMW XM appears in INPI records and should come to Brazil in 2023
BMW registered industrial designs for XM at the National Institute of Industrial Property (INPI), the top SUV of the brand’s sports division, the BMW M.
It is worth remembering that the registration of industrial designs or car patents does not guarantee that the models will be launched in the country. This is a common practice of car manufacturers who do registration as a way to protect intellectual property rights related to products.
However, in the case of the BMW XM, the car should be launched in the Brazilian market at the end of the year. The new SUV was presented worldwide in September last year, as part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of the automaker’s sports division.
In December, the manufacturer confirmed the first of XM and 14 other models in South America in 2023. This week, the company announced the launch of new generation BMW X1.
Production of the BMW XM began in December at the brand’s plant in Spartanburg, in the United States, to supply the North American market. This year, it will be launched in Europe and in other markets, such as Latin America.
