Wouldn't this technically be a 1 series sedan?

The concept in exterior and interior is around 90% production reality once the conceptual accessories are removed.
It is a UKL car but available with xDrive and also eDrive.
The car utilises many design features found within a BMW Sedan. Such as a three dimensional character-line and pronounced wheel arches as well as the typical dynamic roof line.
An M Performance model is considered using the upcoming engine that will be featured on the BMW X1, X2 and the MINI Clubman,Countryman and Countryman Coupe.
So this is a 1er sedan or 2er? The 2er was not to be rwd?

This does look really great however. I haven't been a fan lately of BMW design. But for a sedan this looks nice and classy. I know it's just a render. But looks like no exhaust tips. Electric?

Yup. Hope it's RWD too!!!

This money used to get you a proper RWD 3 series. A decade later, you get a (FWD?) 2 series. We've come full circle. Automotive inflation is a bitch.

In Europe (or at least in Norway) it would sell like hot cakes imo.
The AT, GT and now the X1, it's pretty much like a sub brand, like the i.
Not an enthusiast first choice, but the models itself, theyr pretty damn good imo.
Just as an example, the 225d AT will cost you about 500k in Norway, the hybrid though (225Xe), will cut of almost 150k from that price, that will also give you AWD and some extra features.

I think that looks really damn good actually. As someone else said, if they make a fully electric version of it, I think it would be great. Certainly less polarizing than the i3. I'd rock one as a DD

P.S this car came out of nowhere. Wasn't expecting this at all personally

Definitely like it better than the A3, which I presume is it's competition? High hopes for this lightweight beauty!

that is a sweeeeett front...

Looks great from the front, because they are taking a lot of design cues from Audi. The back also looks good because it looks like a Hyundai which are also nice looking cars.

I'm only semi serious but I do see a lot of design elements in other cars here. But everyone copies BMW I thought? I'm confused

This looks really good. Make it RWD for the RoW and it will sell like hot cakes! Those fangs look so much better than the M2's...

I like the detailing (except for the strange looking mirrors), but there is a fundamental flaw in the proportions, which are the very long front overhang and short rear one... These proportions reminds me of French FWD sedans and IMO looks very awkward in a BMW design...

I'm willing to bet that US sales are all but a foregone conclusion at this point. Well, unless the four door (or perhaps, five door) 2 Series coupe likely to arrive later on is offered in the US market instead of this car rather than in addition to it.

That would be the ~300hp B48, possibly taking over the soon-to-be-vacated *35 badge.

No more sub-3 Series RWD vehicles (except the i3, if you think of it as below the 3 Series). The 1 and 2 Series models that are RWD today will move to UKL for the next generation and beyond.

Logically it should be a 1 Series, but when you consider the UKL MPVs are badged as 2 Series, anything is possible.

As far as the timing of the concept debut, I completely agree with you. We had no advance warning as far as I am aware. But the fact that a 1 Series sedan introduction is imminent has been no secret - spy shots have been caught over a year ago:

http://f20.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1031527

Now whether the concept specifically previews the car we've seen driving around is perhaps left for some debate. There will likely be a 2GC as well, and who knows what else they could cook up. A 1 Series equivalent of the 3 and 5 GT models is also possible, assuming all of this form factor spit-balling (well, I am sure there's more to it than that - but it seems that way sometimes) doesn't cease soon and leave a smaller, cleaner product lineup
