Thanks to surprising sales in other markets and sn unfriendly exchange rate, BMW has postponed the planned launch of the X1 in the US indefinitely. This word comes straight from BMWNA this past weekend at Monterey.
The X1 was originally planned for the fall of 2010 and then again for the spring of 2011. Now with the word “indefinite” being used it’s hard to tell when or if it will come to the US. But we have an idea.
We do expect the X1 ultimately on these shores. What could likely happen is for BMW to launch the X1 in the US in conjunction with it’s refresh in two years time. If that does happen, we’d expect for the baby SAV to come to the US market with the N20 and all wheel drive as the only powertrain available.
