BMW could in time offer as many as 12 front-drive cars, and Mini a further 10

BMW says its front-wheel-drive UKL platform could underpin as many as 12 new compact models in coming years, including the next 1 Series and X1, as well as up to 10 spinoffs for its Mini sub-brand. In time, the company claims front-wheel or all-wheel-drive models based on the UKL — BMW’s version of the Mercedes-Benz MFA or Volkswagen MQB modular architecture — will comprise as much as 40 per cent of the Group’s total global sales, though rear-drive remains its pillar.
