Lightbulb Report: Two additional small BMWs coming in 2014 (BMW City car and Mini BMW)

According to: http://translate.googleusercontent.c...FPcWqVtzWLhAJQ


According to the rough google translation, Auto Motor Und Sport is reporting that BMW is expanding its lineup with 2 small models in 2014.

Ones a "Mini" BMW car that is going to compete with the Mercedes A class and upcoming Audi A1. It'll have a 3 cylinder engine good for 90-170 hp and will have hybrid variants.

The other is what the mag is calling "BMW City / Mega City" and is being developed under Project i, BMW's city car and super efficient car program. It's 4 meters, seats 4, is lighweight, powered by 167hp/250tq electric engine which has range of 160km. This car will have a two seat version as well.

i'm gonna be honest, i kinda like the BMW hatch. Not a bad design in my book. Needs a little touching up but not too bad.

yes, this is what many people can afford and buy.
BMW is going toward a right direction by building more efficient cars,
however we will see more BMWs on the road now..

Looks to me like they started with a GTI and slapped BMW'ish front and rear ends on it...

But I dig it too!

Agreed, but it does look awesome.

I'm surprised that its gonna be a 2014 car....seems like they have enough of it done to be a 2012 car.

Is this gonna be coming to the North American market?

Ahh I was about to say the exact same thing. This is just a chopped GTI with the wheels off of the 1er electric.

Awesome!!!, slap a 2 liter direct injection turbo motor with 240hp, keep it under 30K and teens and old folks alike will be lining up at the front doors of BMW dealperships.

Hm It doesn't look bad at all. But how will it affect BMW's 'premium brand' image?

I think it looks great. Make the rear end slightly more aggressive, and provide a performance model w/ more "M" bits to it.
