Although the new-generation BMW 1-Series is just around the corner, the Germans hit an important milestone. They’ve managed to roll off the two millionth BMW 1-Series at the Regensburg plant.
This special car is going to Japan and is the five-door version wearing an Estoril Blue metallic paint. The current BMW 1-Series was introduced for the first time in 2004, so the company managed to sell two million units in just over ten years.
It would be really nice to compare the sales performance of the current-generation with the new model but we do know from the start that the new BMW 1-Series will be also assembled in Leipzig. Speaking of the new model, it will go on sale towards the end of this month.
The new model will benefit from the latest and greatest system engineered by BMW. We talk about standard LED headlights, iDrive system and BMW ConnectedDrive. There will be the usual engine line-up with both petrol and diesel engines while a range-topping BMW M135i is also on the list.
BMW’s xDrive all-wheel drive system will be available on this top-of-the-range model as well as on some diesel models, namely the 118d and 120d.
