BMW 3-Series sedan to end production in Oct. 2011, next-gen model due spring 2012

2011 BMW 3-Series Sedan

BMW has confirmed that it will end production of the current 3-Series sedan in October 2011. The BMW 335d diesel in the United States, will end production just before that in August.

Why? Well, BMW is preparing for the launch of the next-generation 3-Series sedan, which is scheduled to go on sale in spring 2012.

The next-generation BMW 3-Series will be built on a new modular platform. It will carry over the proportions and overall size but will get a major redesign. What kind of redesign? Just take a look at the new 2011 BMW 5-Series. While it won’t look exactly like that it will carry the same aggressiveness and distinct lines.

The interior is also expected to be updated.
