The German company wants to expand the supply of SUVs and leave only the sedan and station wagon in the 3 Series model line. Now the manufacturer believes that buyers will choose a compact X1 or X3 instead of a GT, because these cars are not inferior to passenger models in either handling or fuel efficiency.

The company plans to cut running costs by at least €12 billion during the current year. BMW believes that the refusal to release selected models will save money. In addition, the manufacturer also plans to reduce the number of powertrains.
