The German carmaker, in collaboration with students from the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research, has built a one-off concept based on the X3, dubbed Deep Orange 4. The vehicle in question offers pick-up versatility and boasts a unique ability to carry cargo.
The main changes in design appear at the rear, as BMW Deep Orange 4 comes equipped with a new split opening tailgate for easy access to the cargo bed, an electrically-retractable glass rear window and two-part sideways opening doors to make loading things easier. The crossover also gets a sloped roofline.
BMW Deep Orange 4 offers performance, luxury and flexible storage space in one package and is reported to cost only 8000 dollars more than the standard model. Thus, the target of keeping the costs down has been reached.
This low-volume variant is currently on display at the CAR Group Management Briefing Seminar in Michigan.
