1-Series Diesel

I've started a business that focuses on Fuel Efficient Cars, and I thought a BMW 1-Series Diesel would be a great promotional vehicle. What are the chances of it making it's way to American shores?

I'm with you! I don't want to wait years for maybe a hydrogen Bimmer. Please see my related post on page 2 of the "What's the point?" thread.

Re: 1-Series Diesel

diesels just aren't as popular in the US as they are overseas. i say the chances are really slim. the 1-series doesn't have enough popularity for it to be offered as a diesel. perhaps a 3-series diesel would be a good choice.

thoughts?

Re: 1-Series Diesel

My sources tell me the MUCH more economical four-cylinder gas engine is undergoing EPA testing now and will be offered in the 1 Series next year.

If fuel prices stay up we may see the four-cylinder diesel as well.

Be nice to get 30-40 mpg without going to a MINI.

Re: BMW 1-Series Diesel

The BMW1 Series was launched globally in Autumn 2004 and shares many structural, chassis, powertrain, hardware and electronic elements with the larger 3 Series. The model was started to provide a lower point of entry into the BMW range as the 3 Series moved gradually up-market. Initially launched as a 5-door hatchback, a 2-door coupe version was also launched in July 2007. The 1 Series is priced between the MINI and the current E90 3 Series. Because the hatchback is the only rear wheel drive vehicle in its class, it is often considered the successor to the BMW 2002. The 1 Series line is produced in Leipzig, Germany at BMW's factory.
