Bmw 1-Series has hit the 1 million mark after 5 years of production

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

The smallest BMW currently being offered, the 1-Series, has hit the 1 million mark after having been in production for five years. The 1-Series, which is offered in four body options, achieved this production milestone in its first model generation.

BMW created an anniversary model that was sent to its owner on April 12, 2010, at the Leipzig Motor Show.

The car, a three-door BMW 118d built at the Leipzig plant, is offered as a three-door hatch, five-door hatch, coupe and convertible. In fact, the BMW 1-Series is remarkable as it is the only car in the premium compact segment that has rear-wheel drive.

The car is offered with a choice of six petrol and four diesel engines. The power range extends from 115hp in the entry-level 116d to 306hp in the 135i Coupe and Convertible.

Maximum efficiency, flexibility, and quality, are the qualities that the BMW's ultra-modern Leipzig Plant have. This facility plays a vital role in the current and future plans of Germany's leading premium car maker.

For now, both the BMW 1-Series and the BMW X1 are being produced in Leipzig. The BMW Plant Leipzig is also being prepared for production of an all-electric production model currently being developed by the BMW Group.
