Probably b/c that looks better than a plain badger/beaver/rabbit/whatever?
At the end of the day, this is still going to sell just fine b/c the car-buying public really only cares about a few things (the propeller badge being one of them). A Infiniti-shaped w/ a BMW badge is still more desirable an an Infiniti-shaped car w/, well, an Infiniti badge. And perhaps BMW thought it needed something to compete w/ the every-increasing-in-size 3-pointed star that MB is putting on its cars. Well, this'll do that.
And, in the US, depending on how long the economic downturn lasts.... BMW is notorious for subsidizing its leases so that it can report high sales numbers.... I assume this car will not be an exception to that.
