Sources are now coming out of the woodwork to confirm that BMW will continue with a rear wheel drive 2 Series for at least one more generation. While it’s not yet confirmed it would appear (based on sources in the know) that BMW has decided to move the 1 Series to the front wheel drive UKL platform while keeping the 2 series on either a modified version of the current RWD platform or a shortened version of the next generation 3 Series.

The current generation 2 Series will end production in October 2020. The new rear wheel drive 2 Series should debut that fall with production commencing in the first quarter of 2021.
