BMW X7 truck will be presented during this year’s BMW Motorrad Days

BMW X7 Truck

Last year in October, BMW had released a rendering of what was supposed to be their upcoming BMW X7 truck. Even though the design did not look that much promising, BMW has now come up with the X7 pickup. The pickup truck is not yet released as it will first be presented at this year’s BMW Motorrad Days.

However, this project seems like it will be a one-off project by BMW vocational trainees in cooperation with the Concept Vehicle Construction and Model Technology divisions at the BMW Munich plant.

The pickup truck would be a re-imagined SUV. This is basically a conversion project in which the designers at BMW has converted the seven-set SUV into a five-seat truck which will feature a handcrafted loading area finished in fine-polished wood. The length of the cargo bed would span from 55 inches or 1.4 meters to 79 inches or 2 meters with the rear lid open.

The pickup truck would be lighter in weight as compared to the production model. The truck’s weight is expected to reduce by approximately 440 pounds or 200 kilograms. According to BMW, their use of the CFRP for the components on the roof, rear doors, and cargo bed has resulted in a decrease of the weight.

BMW has released some photos of the pickup truck, and in the photos, the pickup truck is carrying BMW’s motorcycle, the F 850 GS. The pickup is supposed to be exhibited as a concept only at a motorcycle show, so they decided to incorporate the two things in a single image. It took the production team a whole of ten months to finish transforming the X7 into a show car.

BMW described the X7 truck and the F 850 GS bike as “faithful companions”, and that both of the vehicles have “excellent driving characteristics both on paved and unpaved roads, the journey is the destination.” However, BMW has made it very clear that they do not have the slightest intention to bring the X7 pickup into production.
