The new BMW 330e, M4 GTS, X1, and 7 Series will all make their North American debut on November 18th at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show. The BMW X5, i8, i3, and 3 Series will also be on display.

Set to go on sale in the U.S. next spring, the 330e plug-in hybrid combines a 4-cylinder TwinPower Turbo engine with an electric motor for a total of 248 hp and 310 lb-ft torque. It accelerates from 0-60 mph (96 km/h) in 5.9 seconds. In everyday driving condition, a total range of up 373 miles (600 km) is attainable.

Meanwhile, the 2016 BWM M4 GTS uses an M TwinPower turbo engine with innovative water injection to produce 493 hp. Capable of sprinting from 0-100 km/h in 3.8 seconds and reaching a top speed of 305 km/h, it recorded a lap time of 7 minutes and 28 seconds around the legendary Nürburgring-Nordschleife in Germany. 

The second-generation BMW X1 promises more room for passengers and their luggage. It’s already on sale in the U.S. with a 228-hp 4-cylinder engine mated to an 8-speed Steptronic automatic transmission. 

Finally, the new 2016 BMW 7 Series flagship sedan stands out with a considerably lighter body structure, as well as pioneering technologies like Gesture Control, Wireless Charging and Display Key.
