Video: BMW Will Get Rid Of Half Of The Versions With & Nbsp; Internal Combustion Engines By & Nbsp; 2021 & Nbsp; Year
BMW has released a financial statement for 2019, which contains details of plans for the near future. It was announced that the range of traditional modifications with internal combustion engines will be reduced by 50 percent over the year.
- It is not yet known which modifications will be abandoned by BMW. In 2019, head of development, Klaus Fröhlich, said the company would definitely get rid of the 1.5-liter three-cylinder diesel engine, the three-liter four-turbine diesel and the petrol 6.6-liter V12.
- With this radical decision, BMW wants to optimize the transition to hybrid and all-electric powertrains. It is planned that their development will be accelerated by a third. Additionally, the company will ditch low-sales models. For example, the i8 coupe and roadster will be discontinued in April.
As a result, BMW plans to save up to 12 million euros by the end of 2022. Also, within the framework of the optimization program, the size of multimillion-dollar fines for violating environmental standards in the EU countries should be reduced.
- The Bavarian company has confirmed that the range of electrified BMWs will expand to 25 models by 2023. Of these, 13 will be fully electric.
