It will be interesting to see how both deal with this.
It is possible to go lower than 1. There are decimals, zero, and even negative numbers. I would have liked the FWD cars to be called the minus one series! :-)

Could it be called the .1
This would allow BMW to have a full series of front wheelers like the the .1 .3 .5 .7

Perhaps give them a front wheel designation like 1F being F for You get the idea

The first patent images of areas of the upcoming BMW 1er Gran Turismo nee Active Tourer have been found.
And as you can see what you see as a concept is very much the reality.

As you can see there will be LED lights and even side cameras available as optional equipment.
Like the equivalent B-Klasse , BMW expects the GT to be also a second car or a weekend hauler for the customer that may have an X5 etc so the emphasis is on downsizing a luxury car into a more populated and growing segment. And yes that is US style side reflectors on the wheel arch as BMW do have plans to eventually sell this car to US customers.
Attached Images
