With Mercedes-Benz having taken the plunge into pickup-land with its Class X (which won’t be sold in North America), BMW gets asked regularly if it isn’t tempted to follow suit.
And the answer has always the same: Nope!
This hasn’t stopped the company from having a pickup Beemer designed and built, mind you – one based on the company’s new X7 SUV.
And why would it do that? Simply put, as a work project for the students in its vocational training centre. The training centre is located close by to BMW HQ, a perfect way to encourage close cooperation and improve learning.
