A BMW dealer in France posted a teaser for the brand new BMW X1. Charrier Cholet’s German storefront invited guests to a pre-premiere event on Monday, May 2, suggesting that the official release for the upcoming compact crossover could not be too far away. Since the X1 is the Bavarian version of the Mini Countryman, many changes to the third generation clubman will make their way to the third generation X1. BMW is forecast to grow 6.3 inches compared to the current generation; If so, the gap between the new X1 and the current X3 will shrink to four inches.
Most of the length is thought to occur inside the wheelbase. Both the X1 and Clubman will ride in an evolution of BMW’s UKL / FAAR front-wheel drive, and although newer cars will power the front axle as always, the platform will need to make room for battery packs and motors that will provide pure-electric power. Both car versions. The battery-electric X1 will be called the iX1, it is thought to be available with a pack of up to 74 kWh and up to 250 miles in WLTP cycles. Although unlike the Countryman, BMW is still expected to get a PHEV powertrain for the next generation.
