BMW Gran Coupe gets green light


BMW has confirmed that its Gran Coupe concept car will go into production

BMW will build its Gran Coupe concept car, the company's development chief Klaus Draeger told Automobilwoche.

The coupe-styled four-door was first unveiled at the Beijing auto show in April. Draeger said the production version will be positioned close to the BMW 6 Series.

It is still undecided whether the Gran Coupe will get hybrid drive, Draeger said.

“We are in position to bring out an additional hybrid version since we are using the same powertrain architecture as the 5, 6 or 7 Series," he said.

The Gran Coupe will launch in 2012, following the debut of the new two-door 6 Series coupe next year.
