BMW Confirms 11 New Front-Wheel-Drive Models - Report

It’s been on everyone’s mind lately and it’s been causing its fair share of nightmares  for this editor for quite a while now: BMW will go front-wheel-drive. No news here.

However, we didn’t expect the officials to give the green light to so many models as the guys from Auto Express found out that the exact number of new cars that will use the UKL1 platform will be 11. That’s right, BMW will launch 11 new models based on this platform in the next years.

The number comes from BMW’s Head of Sales and Marketing, Ian Robertson, after he previously said that up to 20 new cars might be possible. They might’ve reconsidered after reading some hate filled articles on various websites (we won’t point them out but you know what we’re talking about).

Fortunately, out of these 11, only 3 will be BMWs as the other 8 will remain in MINI’s line-up, including 3- and 5-door hatches alongside a replacement for the Roadster and Coupe models to rival Mazda’s Miata.
