hasn't announced it yet, but sources familiar with BMW's production plans have told Autoblog that the M135i concept it will show at the Geneva Motor Show
will go into production.
The 1 Series hatch with M Performance
modifications and a gas-powered, turbocharged inline six will send 300+ horsepower to its 18-inch wheels in either rear-wheel drive or xDrive configurations. According to Autoweek
it will perform much like the 1M Coupe, getting from standstill to 62 mph in under five seconds.
Continental Europe will get it for sure, but markets like the UK won't since xDrive isn't yet compatible with right-hand-drive. The UK market has been told
that only the X models will have all-wheel drive until the next-gen 5 Series arrives. We're probably out in the cold as well, but we'll know more in Geneva.BMW M135i will be produced, offer xDrive
