The costs of obtaining Federal certification are not trivial. An automaker's market research indicates which model/drivetrain demand would justify the costs. Evidently BMW has decided that the market will support the AWD wagon version and this is a better profit for BMW. If the take rate is exceptional, then they will consider other drivetrains as well.

This is the highest number of diesel models they are offering to date. I'm glad about that.
