After five years of production and four body variants, the BMW 1 Series has already reached a one-million sales in its first model generation, confirming its status as a genuine best seller in the international car market.
The anniversary model was delivered to its proud owner at the Leipzig Motor Show. The three-door BMW 118d was built at BMW Plant Leipzig and was handed over jointly by Frank-Peter Arndt, Member of the Board of BMW AG for Production, and Stanislaw Tillich, the Prime Minister of the Free State of Saxony, to a customer from Leipzig.
The BMW 1 Series is available in Europe as a three-door Sedan, a five-door Sedan, Coupé and Convertible, although US customers are only offered the Coupe at present.
The 1 Series stands out as the only car in the compact segment with rear-wheel drive. High-tech suspension technology is unparalleled in its class and provides the characteristic driving pleasure of the BMW 1 Series.
