BMW will be introducing the production version of the 2-Series Active Tourer to the United States in early next year.
The BMW 2-Series Active Tourer, in its production form, has been already spied several times until now so its development is no longer a secret for anyone, but what comes as something new is that we now get to learn when the model in question will be hitting the market. According to the guys at Edmunds, who have recently spoken to Ludwig Willisch, the BMW North America president and CEO, the production version of the Concept Active Tourer will be making its debut in the U.S. at the beginning of next year.
The name of the brand new model hasn’t been announced yet but it’s believed that this will wear the 2-Series Active Tourer moniker. The vehicle will ride on the UKL platform, which is also used by the new generation of the MINI, and it will get about the same engines. One of its main rivals will be the Mercedes-Benz B-Class. The BMW 2-Series Active Tourer will probably be unveiled in a couple of months, during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. More details on the model remain unknown for the moment.
