(AP Photo/BMW China, David Chao)A new generation of BMW 328I sedans, the BMW 328E, are set to hit the road this year, and for good reason.
In the US, the 330e has seen more than 1,200,000 orders in just over a year, with demand surging thanks to its all-new design.
The 328i is the car’s successor, with an even more modern styling, and it’s likely to make the leap to the US market as well.
So far, BMW has yet to reveal any pricing or specs for the 328i.
But that’s not stopping people from speculating that it will be a pretty sweet car.
One of the most popular rumors is that it could be a “true” BMW 328, and not a “sporty” model.
In a post on BBM, one of the world’s biggest car forums, a user named “bwj” claimed that the 328 is actually the “saucer-sized” 328i model, and suggested that the “real” 328 is a “luxury” 328E.
The car would come in four trim levels, and could be offered with an all-wheel drive system, a manual transmission, a four-wheel-drive system or a six-speed manual transmission.
Forbes has estimated that the base 328i will be around $35,000, and will come with a 6-speed automatic.
A BMW spokeswoman told the Wall Street Journal that the company is “aware of this rumor” and has no comment.BMW’s sales of 328i sedans are up 35 percent since the start of the year, according to its website, and the car is now selling at a rate of 2,500 per week.
The 328i was launched in 2013, and has seen strong demand in China and the US.
