1-Series Diesel

12-13-2004, 08:37 PM
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.

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.

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.
