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 love seeing BMW taking progressive steps towards efficency. Unlike GM and other American car companies... BMW actually walks the talk...

Cute & Sporty

This car is a perfect balance of sporty and cute. Wow.

Hope it can come out as an electric or very peppy hybrid/diesel or hybrid/gasoline car.

If it has some alt energy drivetrain it will carry a cost premium that would put it in the lower range of traditional BMW prices (despite the small size).

It may be here to compete with the A1/A3...

But it sure looks like an Audi to me.

i thought this was why we had a 1 series 5 door version, so they dont have to go invest in building a new car?

If BMW made a hatch looking exactly like that, they'd have a winner no doubt. That would definitely be a great and affordable supplementary car to the weekend cruiser.
