1m reasons for BMW to cheer
Milestone: BMW’s 1-series has reached the million mark, five years after it started as a hatchback and later developed into a saloon, coupé and convertible.
It is still the only rear-wheeldrive car in its sector.
The millionth car, a threedoor from the Leipzig factory, was handed over to a local customer this week at the Leipzig motor show.
In 2008, a 118d model was chosen as the World Green Car of the Year.
