It is the largest of BMW's SUVs, although based off the BMW X5 platform, and will be built at BMW's North American plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina . It is dubbed "Sports Activity Coupé" by BMW, and while slightly longer and wider than the X5 , can only seat four people. The concept model debuted at the 2007 Frankfurt Auto Show . The production X6 will officially debut at the 2008 North American International Auto Show . A hybrid version, which should be the first such vehicle from BMW, was also announced
