BMW has teamed up with Chinese automaker Brilliance Automotive to create a joint venture in China, called Zinoro, and it appears that an all-electric version of the X1 crossover is to be the brand's first model. Spotted testing in Munich, these spy shots show a more camouflaged version of the X1 EV that we saw back in April.

Comparing these latest spy shots, we can see that the Zinoro model will wear a completely unique front fascia that ditches BMW's trademark grille, but few other changes seem to be taking place. Previous reports indicate that this Zinoro EV could go on sale in China early next year.

      Even the camo can't hide the uglyness.

      From what we can see here I am not entirely impressed...

      The X1 is hideously melted, like most chinese cars, so they don't have to change much to make it fit anyway.

      It looks like Ford's designers decided to give their take on a Cayenne.

      something about this feels sickeningly wrong… the 24th most valuable brand in the world whoring out its designs in an 'almost' product in China?

        yep, you're smarter than everyone else. Everyone should see the world from your perspective and have your wisdom. Your "something about this feels sickeningly wrong' and 'whoring out its designs in an 'almost' product in ?China?' betray your halo.

        When it comes to China and sales matters, everybody does it, BMW isn't the first one and isn't gonna be the last one.

      I live in Thousand Oaks Ca...always see pre-production cars dressed in camo in the area...last week while on a roadbike ride with my daughter I saw the X-1 in camo...light blue camo with the usual swirls...M daughter commented that it probably looks better with the camo then without...had to agree

      Wow another fantastic BMW! The little blind Bavarian elves sure are working overtime. I'll get in line as soon as everything freezes over and they offer the cammo as an option.
