BMW is now a company that produces front wheel drive vehicles. That’s unarguable. But it gets worse/better depending on your affiliation. In the next several years BMW’s front wheel drive line-up all swell to at least 12 vehicles. It wasn’t long ago that BMW was all 3, 5 and 7 series. Now we’ve got this:

  • F45 BMW 1 Series hatchback / Fall 2014
  • F46 MPV (not for the U.S.) / Spring 2015
  • F56 MINI hatch / Spring 2014
  • F55 MINI four door / Fall 2014
  • F57 Convertible / Spring 2015
  • F54 Clubman / Fall 2015
  • F48 X1 / Fall 2015
  • F49 X1 Long Wheel Base / Spring 2016
  • F52 1 Series Four Door Sedan / Spring 2016
  • F47 X2 / Fall 2016
  • F60 Countryman / Spring 2017
  • F61 Paceman / Spring 2018

What does it mean? Financial success and independence? Or a complete loss of soul? Will consumer care or even notice? Bookmark this and let’s come back to it in five years. We’re betting on the former, but time is the ultimate judge.
