I was told last year by a dealer that there was going to be a massive change to bmws line up. a lot of new cars were being sold at a cut down price as they are trying to clear the way for a new bread of vehicles.
well today I saw 2 of them. And as I thought they are indeed hybrids. I did expect electric but never expected them to be 4wd. well if you can call it that. today I saw a 2 series x drive. this is my opinion.
just seen a 2 series xdrive, what can I say
they look awful !!!!! my god its the first bmw I actually hate the look of.
I don't get it. its a fiesta or a small zafira. it looks totally wrong http://pullzone1.motoringresearch.ne...ive_Tourer.jpg
its the future of bmw. electric MOTOR on the rear wheels and a 3 cylinder petrol engine in the front powering the front wheels. BMW 2 Series Active Tourer : Electrical xDrive highlight
I heard its the way all bmws are heading. the i3 and i8 where the test bench for the release of a whole new range.
in essence though these are 3cyl front wheel drive cars, they are selling the electric motor as an EBOOST. for when you need it. so I guess you havn't got that power all the time. and the battery will give only a short burst before needing to charge up ready for the next eboost.
