They are more into the F30 ActiveHybrid 3. I've read that BMW are not yet committed to when F30 variants in the USA will have diesel power.
They don't have the infrastructure for Diesel, many petrol forecourts only do Petrol. You almost have to go to truck stops to get Diesel in many places, so no wonder Diesel passenger cars are not a big hit.
