• The end is near - BMW to partner with Peugeot on hybrid front wheel drive BMW's

      The ultimate sellout machine continues to roll. BMW announced this week they will be partnering with Peugot-Citroen on a hybrid front wheel drive drivetrain for a BMW vehicle positioned beneath the 1 series. The 0 series? Who knows, but we thought this is what the Mini brand was for? It would seem that the next generation Mini will be sharing this platform so BMW is simply re-badging that for increased sales. Someone make this nonsense stop.

        If I hear words "hyrbid", "eco" and "green" one more $#@!ing time I am going to start pouring my motor oil right into my nearest canal. This is becoming a marketing venture more than actually trying to save the environment.

        I read an article a couple days ago, bmw plans to release 13 front-wheel drive models by 2015. I knew they planned to produce front-wheel drive cars, but what the hell?
