One Thing Is For Certain - All Future BMW i Models Will Employ Carbon Fiber

BMW holds trademarks for i1 through i9, so we're sure more BMW i models are on the way (or at least planned), but how soon will the next BMW i arrive?

In 2016, according to Automobil Produktion (via Google Translate):

"The time seems ripe to take the next step.  AUTOMOTIVE PRODUCTION confirmed a member of the board, one with respect, claims another i- model already in the test phase. Other sources peddle , the new i - model might already be on the market in 2016 and would be a family-oriented vehicle with a similar design as the new BMW 2er Active Tourer."

"This mid-size van would combine high everyday practicality with a futuristic design and innovative technology and rather address a broader customer base."

By van, we assume crossover is the more accurate term used in the US.

If true, then look for BMW's next i model to be a crossover, which will debut in 2016.
