BMW just let us know about a new modular RWD platform that will underpin everything from 3 series to 7 series.

Earlier this year, we reported on BMW’s plans to launch a new rear-wheel drive platform by 2016. Dubbed “35up”, the new platform will debut alongside the next generation 7 Series.

AutomotiveNews now confirms what we reported before: the platform will also be used for the 3, 5 and 6 Series.

The platform will be used for both rear-wheel drive and xDrive vehicles and mixes high-strength steel, aluminum and carbon fiber. Vehicles, like the new G30 5 Series will drop around 80 kg from today’s 5 Series.
Great move, Audi has been killing with their modular setup, BMW and Merc are both years behind however...
