Rear-wheel drive versions of BMW’s SUVs like the BMW X1 will most likely carry the sDrive name instead of the current xDrive suffix. BMW has registered the trademark sDrive along with displacement indicators such as sDrive35, sDrive30, sDrive20 and sDrive18. Even the upcoming new generation BMW Z4 could carry this suffix since BMW seems to be using it for all its non-3 digit name models.

The trademarks have been registered in the UK as well but at time of publishing the trademark search server seems to be down.
