BMW X1 sDrive20i Joins the Company`s Fleet in Brazil
The BMW German carmaker has recently opened a new car factory in Araquari, Brazil with the company to already build new models, like the F30 BMW 3-Series Sedan and the E84 BMW X1. The X1 sDrive20i is latest model to join the club.
Little it is known about the BMW X1 sDrive20i so far, but what we heard is that the model will come with the same engine under the hood, like the BMW 320i Active Flex, meaning that the model will run on ethanol and gasoline, and will develop around 180 horsepower and 270 Nm of torque.
The BMW`s plans don’t stop here, as the carmaker is due to launch the F20 BMW 1-Series, the F25 BMW X3 or the MINI Countryman, as well, by the end of 2015.
We are talking about a mass production, with more than 30,000 vehicles being built every year, the carmaker also planning to invest over 200 million euros.
Investments will also bring 1,300 new jobs in the area, as the plant is 1.5 million square meters wide, with the 500,000 of them to be used for production alone.
