Chinese website Autohome uploads the first photos of the 2012 BMW 335Li. The 3 Series with a long wheelbase is available for the Chinese market and will go on sale this summer.

The first long wheelbase 3 Series for BMW will be unveiled in April and will go head-to-head with the Audi A4L. The longer sedan will provide additional space for Chinese customers looking for premium vehicles without breaking the bank.

An electric 3 Series Li Concept will also be introduced this year.

The BMW 3er Li will debut at the Beijing Auto Show in April and will not be available in the United States or Europe.

    Has anyone driven one of these? Or any of the China-only BMWs? Wondering if BMW dumbs down/softens the performance at all in increase profitability and/or cater to the mass market.

    I don’t see the point. Why not just get a 5 Series if leg room is an issue.

  3. vitalsigns says:

    love the look of the longer wheelbase
    probably the perfect 5 series…called a 3 series, but the size of an E39

    wish this would make it to U.S. shores
