Over 300,000 BMW X1 Sold to Date, While Winning Host of Awards

A model of success: the BMW X1 has swept up international awards and sold over 300,000 units.

28.06.2012

Munich
. A further chapter has been added to the success story of the BMW X models. In a matter of two-and-a-half years, the BMW X1 has notched up worldwide sales of more than 300,000 units. Since its market launch in autumn 2009, the first – and for a long time only – vehicle of its kind in the premium compact segment has conquered a steadily expanding fan base and scooped up a host of awards. The tremendous popularity enjoyed by the BMW X1 both in its home country and in numerous car markets around the world is fresh proof of the sheer appeal of the vehicle concept embodied by the BMW X models. This compact all-rounder entered the market as the fourth member of the BMW X family and rapidly advanced from a trailblazer to a bestseller.

The stand-out position of the BMW X1 is also reflected in the many national and international prizes bestowed on the compact BMW X model in recognition of its design, driving characteristics and high safety levels. Immediately after its market launch, the BMW X1 was voted off-roader of the year in the “Crossover” category by readers of “OFF ROAD” magazine. Almost simultaneously, Italian magazine “Quattroruote” proclaimed it “New car of the year 2010”.

The BMW X1 was also instantly awarded the “Auto Trophy” by the German publication “Auto Zeitung”, and in the following year picked up the “Design Trophy” from the same magazine, the “red dot award” for outstanding product design, and the “Auto Bild Design Award” in the “SUV, Van and All-Wheel-Drive” category. In the “Wertmeister 2010” (Value Champions) rankings, also published by “Auto Bild”, the BMW X1 came top of its class by virtue of its high product quality and popularity. The highest possible score of five stars in the Euro NCAP crash test, moreover, confirmed the outstanding occupant protection and comprehensive safety features provided by the BMW X1.

In a competitive environment now also inhabited by other premium carmakers, the BMW X1 remains compelling for its agile handling, exemplary efficiency and extraordinary versatility. With a choice of five diesel and three petrol engines and an output ranging from 85 kW/116 hp to 180 kW/245 hp, it offers the most wide-ranging engine portfolio in its segment. Boasting the most favourable ratio of driving enjoyment to fuel efficiency is the BMW X1 sDrive20d EfficientDynamics Edition with output of 120 kW/163 hp and average fuel consumption in the EU test cycle of 4.5 litres per 100 kilometres (62.8 mpg imp) combined with CO2 emissions of 119 grams per kilometre.

As well as engines featuring BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and the optional eight-speed automatic transmission, the highlights of the BMW X1 also include BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive. The most powerful petrol and diesel engines each come as standard with this electronically controlled, variable power distribution system. xDrive is available for a further three models as an alternative to the typical BMW rear-wheel drive that is likewise unique in this vehicle class.

Various premium equipment features and innovative functions from
BMW ConnectedDrive underline the progressive character of the BMW X1. The range of functions which – thanks to intelligent integration – provide optimum convenience, safety and in-car infotainment possibilities include services that are unrivalled by the competition, such as the BMW Assist telephone information service and Real Time Traffic Information. Beyond this, the integration of the Apple iPhone in conjunction with the BMW Apps option allows the reception of internet radio stations and the use of Facebook and Twitter in the car.

The interior of the BMW X1 provides five full-size seats and carrying capacity offering a wide range of different uses. By folding down the standard 40:20:40 split-folding rear seat bench, luggage space can be extended from 420 to 1,350 litres.

None have been delivered in the US, the article is about world wide deliveries and it's "coming" to the US.

It has a great success in Europe, can 't wait for the production release of the LCI model: more engines available, some design improvements and better quality interior

I'm excited to finally see it in the States too, but does anyone else feel like we'll be getting something already old?

The x1 has been out since 2009, would you trade whatever cell phone you have now for one from 2009? I wouldn't!

I also do not understand why the 35i has the old 6-speed auto and not the new 8-speed. Again, another example of getting something somewhat already out-dated...

Any way you cut it that's a lot of cars. Basically it's one X1 sold for every 20000 humans on planet earth. Not bad.

I am curious why bmw is not introducing more X1 performance parts. I have difficulty even to find an exhaust for it. Since every 5 BMWs sold 1 of them is a X1, sure there will be market for it.

That is pretty insane logic. Yes its been out for 3 years outside the US but all BMWs have a 7 year cycle. So buying a new Z4 would be like buying an old car according to that logic. Wait 3 more years and you can get an all new X1.

About the only old thing about it is the chassis which is outstanding. Latest engine and transmission ( for the N20 anyway)and it will probably account for most of the sales. It wasn't launched until the fall of 2009 so really 2 1/2 years old. Since I already own an E92 I'm sold on the chassis, basic interior look etc. it's not like every new product from BMW is better than the previous generation. The new 528 isn't exactly winning any car comparisons. I personally think this is one of the best products BMW makes and for the money would be no 2 only behind the 328. Each generation gets bigger, heavier and less sporting (5 series, 7, X3, X5, Z4). This is a more back to basics product ( light weight and good handling) that BMW needs to have more of.

"In a matter of two-and-a-half years, the BMW X1 has notched up worldwide sales of more than 300,000 units."
BMW dropped the ball on this one, If they would have released here in the US, that number should be 500,000 units. But BMW wants people to shell out $50k large for the X3. Not in this economy!! The "people" majority buying SUV's in the $25K-$35 range. All manufactures have stepped up the small SUV game. Just look around........The X1 is late to the game, in this country.

I'm not sure that it competes with anything in the $25-35k range and that certainly wouldn't be BMW's goal. It competes with Audi, Mercedes, Volvo, Acura, Range Rover. It does not compete with Toyota, Honda, Mazda or anything like a Ford Escape. People may compare it to those but that's not what BMW competes with. The new X1 will smoke the CRZ, I think it's 0-60 in 8.5 seconds and the Escape is well north of 7 seconds even with the new turbo 2.0. If someone expects to get into a new BWM at those prices they need to buy used. The day BMW gets into those price points is the day I'll move into another premium brand.
