According to the German publication Autobild, BMW is currently in the process of creating a competitor to the VW Polo. For those of you unfamiliar with the Polo, it is a micro version of the Golf we see here in the states. What this means is that BMW is building a smaller version of the 1 if this story is to be believed. Autobild is usually reliable in their reporting but we have no additional information at this time to verify this.
We have heard from our sources BMW is building “Mega City ” vehicle(s) as part of Project-i, as in i-Setta. All our information points to vehicles that will be small/micro and feature high efficiency and low to zero emissions propulsion units. These vehicles are said to have a new distinct style that does not fit within MINI or the main BMW design language hence the reason these vehicles will be spun off into the new sub-brand, very unlikely the Autobild render would fit into that description.
We will keep you updated as we receive more information but thought the prospects of a smaller BMW vehicle may get some of our reader ‘s excited. My question is: How is this different than a MINI if this is true?
