X1 not a part BMW's "diesel barrage"

Excited as I was to see this article, sentiment quickly turned negative when I realized a compression ignition X1 is apparently not part of any near/intermediate plans for BMWNA. Happy to see the X3 and 3 touring will get oil burners but between a higher point of entry and the Obama win with the promise of higher taxes and corporate regulation (I work in finance) I'm not so ready or willing to whip out that kind of cash. That leaves Mazda as my last hope of putting a diesel CUV in my driveway. Otherwise its probably back to Subaru. Depressing I know, stock market didn't like it too much either it seems.
