At current Plant production numbers...X4 and X7 won't get them to 450k annual units... Stay tuned...Thanks. Palbay
Sure they won't but the demand for X3 & X5 is currently exceeding demand so the rest of the capacity will be used to increase X3 & X5 production.

Btw, regarding the "bigger X5" under the cover you spotted few days ago: it might actually be X7 mule (with stretched X5 body - strictly for the chassis testings). The mules will be out soon. Real X7 prototypes (with genuine X7 body) are expected to roll out later this year.
Thanks for the info. I hope the World keeps buying the X's...To help fund the 2,500 lb, 450 hp, Carbon Fiber Sports Car that everyone in the world will apparently buy... On the lookout for odd clearances/fit and finishes on any X5's...Take care. Palbay
