BMW X1 ConceptBMW will be revealing the new X1 compact CUV concept at the Paris Motor Show in September. They have already started production on the car at the Leipzig facility.

As is often the case with BMW, the “concept” is almost exactly what we’ll see when it goes on sale in the fourth quarter of 2009. The new model will be built off the 1-series platform (a shortened 3-series) and according to an unnamed source quoted by Automotive News, “will use the two highest spec gasoline and the two highest spec diesel engines from the 1-series.”

The source also confirmed earlier reports that the MINI SUV/CUV will debut in Paris with power provided by the Cooper S’ turbocharged 1.4-liter or the Cooper D’s oilburner. Sales of the MINI ‘ute will begin in the second quarter of 2010.
