Orders for all variants started in September, but not all versions are available for delivery. Production of the plug-in-hybrid and full-electric variants started this month, with deliveries expected to start in early 2023, BMW executives said during a presentation here.
All derivatives of the SUV’s third generation will be made in Regensburg, Germany, marking the first time that BMW has built models with combustion engines, plug-in hybrid systems and full-electric powertrains on one production line.
Since its debuts in 2009, BMW has sold 1.9 million X1s worldwide (this doesn’t include 800,000 units of a slightly different variant made in China for the local market).
BMW declined to provide a sales forecast for the new generation. Instead, it provided an estimate on the powertrain split (see table below).
