The BMW X1 is a compact crossover manufactured and marketed worldwide by BMW considering that 2009 in rear-wheel-drive (sDrive) and all-wheel-drive (xDrive) configurations – now in its second generation.
X1 production followed the concept debut at the 2008 Paris Motor Show. with series manufacture starting at the BMW Leipzig plant in October 2009 – followed by production in Chennai, India, Shenyang, China, (by BMW-Brilliance Automotive Ltd) and Kaliningrad, Russia (CDK,with local partner Avtotor).
2017 BMW X1 Design
The BMW X1 carries the all-new looks of the second-generation X1 introduced for the 2016 model year. The front continues to wear the BMW kidney bean grille, quad headlights, and aggressive lower fascia. The X1’s sides sport hard accent lines about the wheel openings and horizontally across the doors. The roofline bows to the modern coupe-like slope that tapers downward from a raked windshield.
The major change, naturally, is the extra 3.1 inches of wheelbase length added within the rear doors. The body is accented by an abundance of chrome, including on the grille, inside the headlights, along the rocker panels, around the side windows, and lengthy the lower rear fascia.
Our spy photographers didn’t get any shots of the interior, but that’s okay simply because we do not expect it to be extremely diverse at all. It need to sport the identical general design as shown here from the standard X1. There may perhaps be a unique badge someplace on the dash to designate the cars “e” status, but aside from that expect the very same layout. It really should sport the very same display screen at the leading of the center stack despite the fact that its programming might be slightly distinctive to accommodate for its hybrid nature.
I also suspect that the instrument cluster will undergo a few changes to accommodate the need for additional information and facts like battery charge state, driving mode, all-electric distance accessible. Provided the fact that the cabin in the X1 as we know it is pretty sporty and inviting, the reality that there are going to be very little difference among the plug-in and standard model is not precisely a letdown.
