Germany’s Auto Motor Und Sport magazine claims that BMW will showcase an all-new 9 Series concept at the upcoming 2014 Beijing Motor Show which commences on April 19.

The concept will be more of a design study, to judge the business case for a flagship model positioned above the 7 Series, yet below the Rolls Royce Ghost.

The move to show a 9 Series concept at the Chinese motor show comes because BMW is under-represented in China with the 7 Series, claims the report. Even if the 9 Series does not make it to production, the exterior and interior styling will preview the next generation 7 Series, which is due next year.

The supposed 9 Series will make use of the same OKL (Ober Klasse) platform which will be used for successors of the 5, 6 and 7 Series, apart from the next Rolls Royce Ghost and the BMW X7. If the 9 Series is green-lighted for production, it will enter showrooms in 2016 or 2017.

Another high-end BMW which will launch towards 2017 is the BMW X7. Last week, the company confirmed plans for the full-size SUV which will enter production at the Spartanburg plant in the USA. BMW made an investment of 1 billion USD (INR 6,014 crore) in this plant to boost production capacity to 450,000 units/annum (from 300,000 units/annum).
