Last week, BMW has reapplied to hang on to the i9 trademark in the United States. First officially confirmed in the US in 2012, BMW’s trademark was only good until July 31, 2018, so this could be the main reason why the i9 nameplate was once secured. This week, BMW has gone through a similar process with the i7 trademark.

Steve McQueen’s descendants are suing Ferrari for marketing autos around the image of the iconic actor without compensating the family. The Italian sports car company profited unfairly from the actor’s legacy in 2017 when it sold “The McQueen,” a limited-edition model in connection with the 70th anniversary of Ferrari-branded cars, said the lawsuit, which was filed this week in a California state court.

Then in April, the Swedish automaker announced it plans for half its sales to be full-electric models by 2025. All this news leads us to a new finding from Swedespeed – Volvo filed for trademarked that could hint at future electric vehicles. According to the publication, Volvo trademarked both the XC60 B4 AWD and XC60 B5 AWD nameplates. Deciphering the trademarked names is easy. The B4 and B5 likely denote the XC60’s powertrain, which would be on brand for the automaker.

Jaguar is again picking up the pace. The manufacturer has filed a new European trademark application with the word “Pace” in it, and this time it’s all about the C-Pace. While there is no other info to go with the name, it could very well stand for a new, upcoming compact crossover that would exist as an entry-level vehicle under the F-Pace, E-Pace and the electric I-Pace (which is easily differentiated from the non-electric E-pace, as the I-Pace doesn’t use internal combustion).
