It seems that the Germans at BMW are planning a sedan version of the BMW 1 Series. The small model could receive a sedan variant in the coming years, shows a recent report.
To be more specific, we talk about 2017 as a debut date for the new model as the Bavarians are currently in the initial stage of development.
The new model is likely to be known under the New Entry-level Sedan (NES) moniker and will be focuse on the Chinese and U.S. markets. A BMW insider claimed that these two markets are the main ones for the small four-door sedans.
Initial details also show that the new BMW 1 Series sedan will use the same UKL platform seen on the GT model and the MINI Cooper.
Even little details are known, the sources claim that a plug-in hybrid version is very likely to be part of the offering.
