In the mid-90s, BMW tried selling a 3 Series hatchback in Canada. Very few were sold. The 5er GT has been another dud here.
I do not believe this 3er GT hatchback would sell well in North America. How many luxury hatchbacks do you see on North American roads ? GM is having a really tough time giving away the Volt hatchback ! Perhaps the Chinese market would welcome the 3er GT ?
