BMW News: BMW 1-Series Sedan is A Chinese Only Affair

Recommended Posts


BMW has revealed the 1-Series sedan today in China. This is the German automaker's belated answer to the likes of the Audi A3 and Mercedes-Benz CLA. BMW has only released one image of the new model, but we can tell the design is the same as the Concept Compact Sedan that debuted at last year's Guangzhou Auto Show.

 

BMW's press release on this model is very sparse on technical details. We do believe this sedan is using the UKL front-wheel drive platform that underpins the BMW X1 and Mini Cooper. Power will likely come from turbocharged three and four-cylinder engines.

 

It is expected the model will go on sale soon in China and be produced at Brilliance Auto's plant in Shenyang, China. Brilliance it should be noted is BMW's partner in China.

 

The model is expected to only be sold in China.

The all new BMW 1 Series Sedan. Exclusively for the Chinese Market

 


Beijing: The BMW Group and BMW Brilliance Automotive Ltd. (BBA) will further explore the premium compact segment in China with the BMW 1 Series Sedan – the first compact sports sedan under the BMW brand. This makes BBA's product range in the compact class even more comprehensive with premium entry-level cars covering segments of the Active Tourer, Sports Activity Vehicle, and Sports Sedan, attracting new customer groups to become premium car owners. The premium compact car segment is the fastest growing segment worldwide and in China.

 

The BMW 1 Series Sedan is the most sporty and emotional sedan in segment. It is an exclusive model tailored and aligned to the needs of Chinese customers, solely produced and specifically sold in China. The development and testing of the new car was taken place in the BMW headquarters with the involvement of Chinese engineers. The new car also performed intensive road tests in respect to different circumstances of road conditions and climate situations on different terrains in China. With the BMW 1 Series Sedan, BMW engineers have made a lot of specific fine-tuning and improvements according to the Chinese customers' habits and vehicle-use environment.

 

The BMW 1 Series Sedan is originated from the concept car BMW Concept Compact Sedan, which made its world premiere at Guangzhou Motor Show 2015. As a model ready for production, the BMW 1 Series Sedan maintains design elements of the concept car, including BMW's typical body proportion. The BMW 1 Series Sedan is instantly recognisable as a BMW. It has a concise BMW face with double kidney grille as well as LED double round headlamps and brand emblem in a very present, sporty and modern interpretation. The characteristic BMW design language is also shown in the sporty, emotional and modern-looking silhouette with Hofmeister kink.

 

The BMW 1 Series Sedan is the latest proof of BMW Group’s strength in innovation and is superior in terms of connectivity. Its comprehensive BMW ConnectedDrive technologies provide all customers unparalleled convenience, rich infotainment, and significantly enhanced safety. The latest powerful and technology-leading engines with hi-tech electronic technology from BMW are produced at the new local engine plant in Shenyang and guarantee unparalleled driving pleasure.

 

After the successful launch of the BMW X1 and the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer, the BMW 1 Series Sedan is added to the model range, which now comprises five locally-produced BMW model series in China. With that BMW offers even more attractive entry-level models for its customers. This will further help to expand the company’s product substance and competitive advantage.

The 1 Series was not a joke. It was a great driving car. Just a little heavy for it's size.

Sorry have to disagree, BMW nailed it as a perfect copy of a cheap ass Chevy or Toyota. Hard plastics, uninspiring driving and over priced for what you got including the over priced service costs.

 

You get more auto buying a Camaro or Mustang than a BMW 1 series.

Mr. DFELT.

 

Hard plastics?

- OK, Ill give you that one. Maybe, Ill give you that one. Ive never been in one. Ive seen a 135i in action though.

 

Over priced for what you got?

- OK, I just might agree with you there too. With the exception of the 135i, 135is and 1M.

 

Over priced service costs?

- We will just ignore that statement because

a. We are talking about BMW here...and its a foreign brand...

b. what dealership service department aint over priced whether foreign or domestic?

 

Uninspiring driving?

Not on the 135i, 135is and 1M...

Which were produced between the years 2008-2012.

 

Camaro was not alive in 2008.

Mustang was cool looking in 2008. But was not exactly a...um.. a bahnstohmah (Boston accent)

Camaro in 2009/2010 was a clumsy thing.

 

The BMW 135i, 135is and 1M were visceral little machines that other than the turbos, captured the very essence of what a BMW ultimate driving machine and "M" badge was all about.

when i was selling we had the old style 135i m package.  nice car but it really was niche, wasn't really about transportation, and with the 3 series around, redundant.  If BMW wants the 1 series to truly become their entry level fashion car, front drive is fine, even if hypocritical.  It's all about capturing the next generation of buyers.

 

You gotta cut weight and give more space back to the cabin and trunk and fwd does that.

Probably they can put a 1.6 liter turbo from Mini in there to avoid the displacement taxes.  It is a car that will sell in China.  I don't think it would sell much here.

I'd drive that car. Looks fun as hell. Pretty dang quick as well 13.3 through the 1/4.. 

 

It would just be hard to justify buying that for 25k when I could probably find an S550 Mustang GT for close to that at this point.

Not Ignorant or Biased, it is my own personal opinion after having been in many American made auto's and having people who love the german brands brag them up so much such as SMK and I get into one expecting something special and I end up with a Meh impression especially after being in current Chevy or Toyota's. 

 

My coworker loves his 135i and I am happy for him, but even he admits that his wife's new accord does does make one rethink about what is so special about the german brands. He stated if it was not used and a hella deal he would have probably not gotten it. With that he also has price shock as he had an engine light come on and was shocked with the price to repair.

 

BMW must know that to a certain point I have hit this on the nail as they pulled the 1 series rather than update it to be a competitive auto.

Thank you for posting the link to this car that is for sale ccap, again it is personal preference but I find the pictures of this interior for a 2012 BMW 135i to be very dated, you can see all the hard plastics and it looks like something I would expect out of an auto from the late 90's or early 2000's but even then, today's auto's from Chevy and Toyota clearly are way better than these BMW 1 series.

 

BMW failed in my opinion on this auto.

Sorry but there was absolutely no real reason for the 1 series to ever exist here. Good riddance. China can have that junk.

The 1 Series did not go away...

It became the 2 Series.

 

And If Im not mistaken, the M235i is just as a great performance BMW machine as the 135i was.

And the M2 has arrived also. And Im guessing the M2 is one hot number as well...

 

The plebeian 1 Series and 2 Series may be useless....but not the performance versions.

But then again,

a 1980s 318 was just as crappy as the plebeian 1 and 2 Series, non?

The 2 Series is bigger and RWD so it really doesn't have much in common with the 1 other than "replacing" it.

The 1 Series has always been RWD. The 2 replaced the 1 simply so this could happen- a FWD 1 in other markets.

The original 128i and 135i sold here were rear wheel drive.  They were cut down 3-series chassis.  The current 2-series as it is now sort of caters to that buyer that loved the late 90s and early 2000s 3-series, because it is that size, and the M2 version is pretty fast, the 0-60 time is 4.0 seconds, 163 mph top speed and .99 g skidpad rating, 3500 lb with 365 hp.   Those are pretty major league numbers for a $55,000 car.

My bad. Just saw that. Why in the hell would they go the Mercedes route and dumb it down to FWD?

On a side note,

Make one little error and three people are there to pounce right on it.

Lol you sure were! I just have no emotional connection to BMWs at all, save for two cars I had the privilege of driving for drunk friends (2007 7 Series and an M5). Nice rides but I would not wish the long term headaches on my worst enemy. Edited by surreal1272

      Like many countries, China offers various incentives to spur the sales of electric vehicles. But a report from Bloomberg says the Chinese government is considering reducing various subsidies beginning next year. 
      According to sources, the government is considering cutting the average incentive by more than a third from where they currently stand. Also up for consideration is incentives being eligible on models that can travel at least 200 kilometers (about 125 miles) on a single charge. Why? The government wants automakers to keep innovating by making EVs cheaper and go much further on a charge.
      “China is switching away from carrots. The government wants to ensure automakers will launch models that would be appealing to consumers hence setting subsidies contingent on minimum driving range requirements,” said Ali Izadi-Najafabadi, an analyst at Bloomberg NEF.
      In 2017, the Chinese government spent 6.64 billion yuan (about a billion dollars) on various subsidies for electric vehicles. But this year saw the government begin to cut various incentives. For example, cars that have a driving range of less than 300 kilometers (about 186 miles) saw their incentives reduced. 
      “Government policy has a huge impact over the new-energy vehicle sector and every adjustment made on the policy front over the next two years will result in tremendous changes in the industry,” Li Yixiu, sales chief for Beijing Electric Vehicle Company earlier this month.
      "We believe there isn’t a chance for carmakers to raise prices to make up for the reduction of government fundings. Instead, we have to come up with competitive new products and services to respond.”

      Tesla only has one assembly plant in Fremont, California. But that could be changing in the near future.
      Yesterday, Tesla and the and the Shanghai government reached a preliminary deal for a new assembly plant. The automaker expects production in about three year's time, provided they can get the approvals and permits needed. Tesla says the plant could build up to 500,000 vehicles annually. According to Bloomberg, the plant is expected to build the Model 3 sedan and upcoming Model Y crossover.
      Tesla building a plant in China doesn't come as surprise. The country is the largest market for electric vehicles, and most forecasters believe sales will skyrocket as government regulations push toward a goal of 100 percent electric vehicles by 2030.
      There are some questions about this new factory. For one, how is Tesla going to pay for this new plant? At the end of the first quarter, the company burned through $2.7 billion, mostly due to various issues dealing with ramping up Model 3 production. The Shanghai government said it would help cover some of capital costs.
      The other is will Tesla need to share technologies with a Chinese partner. Currently, any foreign automaker has to enter into a joint venture with a Chinese automaker and transfer various technologies.
      "For technology transfer, it is a matter subject to negotiation between the enterprises," said Huang Ou, deputy head of the Shanghai government’s economy and information technology commission.
      The Chinese government announced back in May that it would scrap the rules for "capping foreign ownership of new-energy vehicle ventures" by 2022.
