Munich. The new BMW 1 Series is getting people moving – not just on the road but online, too. BMW is extending its current campaign for the new model in the premium compact segment with the addition of a challenge on the internet platform TikTok. Under the hashtag #THE1challenge, users of the internationally popular social video app are called upon to demonstrate their talent for dance moves by making a short film of their own based on a predefined choreography to pulsating music by the artist Big Gigantic. Influencers with extensive reach pave the way for the #THE1challenge with specially created dance moves filmed in typical TikTok style and inspired by the new BMW 1 Series.

Sky & Tami, FalcoPunch and PatroX are the influencers demonstrating the dance moves for the TikTok challenge relating to new BMW 1 Series. With several million followers, they are among the best-known protagonists on TikTok. Their material can also be seen on their highly popular channels on Instagram and YouTube, too. Their #THE1challenge performances can be viewed as follows:

“TikTok is another highly dynamic and internationally fast-growing social media channel that we’re using to promote the BMW brand, tapping into a young, digitally savvy target group,” says Jörg Poggenpohl, Global Head of Digital Marketing at BMW. “The key to success is to meet the specific requirements of each channel and community by offering challenges, choreographies and music, for example. For the launch of the new BMW 1 Series we’re pursuing this through collaboration with well-known influencers Sky & Tami, FalcoPunch and PatroX under the hashtag #THE1challenge.”

The social video platform TikTok has recently seen an enormous growth in popularity, especially among young people: it currently has more than 500 million monthly users worldwide. The app for creating, uploading and viewing short videos is currently said to be the most frequently downloaded smartphone app. Users can choose from a wide range of voice and music recordings and then combine these with films on their smartphone camera in the typical portrait format. In this way, lip-sync and dance performances are created that can be shared with other users and compared for competitive purposes, for example.

With its innovative #THE1challenge dance contest, BMW is attracting the attention of young target groups to the latest model in the premium compact segment – which itself interprets hallmark brand pleasure in a novel manner. Modern front-wheel drive technology and an innovative Dynamic Stability Control system with a particularly fast and precise response give the new BMW 1 an outstanding level agility with its segment. Its sporty flair is combined with increased interior spaced as compared to the predecessor model, as well as progressive driver assistance systems and the very latest connectivity technology. The worldwide market launch of the new BMW 1 Series starts on 28 September 2019.


The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and power consumption are calculated based on the measurement methods stipulated in the current version of Regulation (EU) 2007/715. The figures are calculated using a vehicle fitted with basic equipment in Germany, the ranges stated take into account differences in selected wheel and tyre sizes as well as the optional equipment. They may change during configuration.


The figures have already been calculated based on the new WLTP test cycle and adapted to NEDC for comparison purposes. In these vehicles, different figures than those published here may apply for the assessment of taxes and other vehicle-related duties which are (also) based on CO2 emissions.


For further details of the official fuel consumption figures and official specific CO2emissions of new cars, please refer to the "Manual on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and power consumption of new cars", available at sales outlets, from Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT), Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen and at

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the automotive market in Germany. For ranges, the NEDC figures take into account differences in the selected wheel and tyre size, while the WLTP figures take into account the effects of any optional equipment.

All figures are already calculated on the basis of the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC values listed have been calculated back to the NEDC measurement procedure where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the definition of taxes and other vehicle-related levies that are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle- specific subsidies. Further information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures is also available at
