BMW is far more interested in saving their own ass than the planet. But in any case, I'd ask that you please use the political forum to discuss the topic of EV demand further.

Had a new 118d M sport as a rental this week. It was typical BMW build quality in a front biased car. Nice tech inside for a 1er and drove fine for what it is. It felt bigger than what it really is which was kinda weird, like driving a "mini SUV" versus a hatch.

Personally I'd buy the last gen 1er in M sport 140i flavor with RWD/MT (low KM of course) before the new version (even if the new one "puts the power down" better).

If I were going the non-RWD route I'd do a manual VW GTI

In the UK there is the M135i (again). Like the US M235i this is the B48 2L 306HP X drive car. F40 for 1 series F44 for 2 series Gran Coupe.

Getting to my point now in the UK reviews lots of people have referred to the M135i not being the direct replacement for the M140i outgoing F20z this was the B58.

Thus...there is room in the lineup for a M140i we thought but no, perhaps it is the M145i. Will no doubt be a version of the B47 with hybrid help taking it nearer 400Hp. Still transverse mounting etc as the chassis defines this.

Hope that all made sense.

I wouldn't be surprised at all to see the *50i badge land on the B58 some day when the N68 (presumed name of the next iteration of the V8) is here and moves on to the *55i badge. Or, if we make the assumption the I6's lifespan will go beyond the V8's (which seems reasonably likely) I suppose the sky is the limit in numbering for the I6.

After all, in decades past, both the 30i and 40i monikers originated on V8 models (of 3L and 4L displacement, fittingly). And the 50i nameplate was reserved for the V12.

Right, but the M245i badge is being associated here with the next generation G42 4 Series coupe which will be a CLAR-based offering. So we are most probably talking about a new iteration of the B58.

Don't expect any FAAR product above M*35i anytime soon.

I don't disagree we'll see performance FAAR-based PHEV vehicles sometime this decade. However, I'd expect those to be branded M*35e or perhaps M*40e.

Well, I wouldn't expect any of this as long as the current FAAR platform is used, as it has been developed and engineered for a max power output of ~300hp.

This is probably one reason why the F40/F44 lifecycle could be shortened as ynguldyn wrote in his November 2019 update. Maybe BMW made a mistake here by making the FAAR platform this cost-efficient. Thinking about AMG or the new Golf R with an expected 333hp

What's the purpose if that given the fact that the 530e is already 4-cilinder?

What are the specs of the 520e then?
In the UK they have just announced the G20/G21 318i will use a lower powered version of the B48 (154hp) rather than the B38.
It could be possible this is what we will see in the 520e as the electric motor would boost the power to circa 200
