BMW of North America will launch the redesigned 5-series sedan Feb. 11.
It is also braced for a flood of vehicles coming off lease and it will improve its product mix to meet consumer demand for light trucks.
BMW will start producing the X7 crossover in November 2018, said Ludwig Willisch, CEO of BMW of North America, in an interview after BMW’s make meeting Saturday.
“It’ll be in dealerships shortly after that, under the Christmas tree, as they say,” Willisch said.
Willisch said he is working “month by month” to ensure BMW dealers have the right product mix of cars and light trucks, and the accurate amount of vehicles.
