The German based automaker BMW is planning to launch a sedan version of its 1-Seriesin 2015, which will be aimed at key markets, like China or the United States.
Even if there is no official word on this subject from the car manufacturer just yet, the guys at autocar.co.uk are saying that the BMW 1-Series sedan will hit the market in its final production form in 2015. According to our source, the BMW 1-Series sedan has a gap to fill after the dimensions of the new generation of the 3-Series (F30) have grown and this gap is apparently just perfect for a sedan version of the 1-Series.
The BMW 1-Series sedan should be a spiritual successor of the old E30 3-Series, which ended its production back in 1994, and it will ride on a rear-wheel drive platform with components borrowed from its older brother, the F30. The source mentioned above is also saying that the BMW 1-Series GT, which will also hit the market in the nearby future, will also use the same system, however, this version will also come with an optional all-wheel drive system. The BMW 1-Series sedan is expected to pack a range of four and six-cylinder engines, but an electric version is also under consideration. More details on the model will be announced later on.
