BMW will get rid of half of the variations with the engine by 2021March 14, 2020
BMW Corporation has released a report on financial results for 2019, where there are details regarding plans for the near future. As noted, over the year the line of classic modifications with internal combustion engines will decrease by 50%.
What kind of variations the German company plans to abandon is currently unclear. In 2019, the head of the development department Klaus Frohlich said the corporation intended to get rid of a 1.5-liter diesel engine per 3 cylinders, a 3.0-liter diesel engine and a 6.6-liter gasoline V12.
With this solution, the German brand wants to optimize the process aimed at the transition to hybrid and fully electric engines. In particular, the corporation will stop the production of cars that are not very popular. For example, next month, the i8 coupe and roadster will no longer be produced.
As a result, by the end of 2022, the brand intends to save up to 12 million euros. In addition, in the framework of the optimization program, the amount of fines for violation of environmental standards in European states should be reduced.
As noted in the German brand, by 2023, the corporation will electrify up to 25 of its own models. Of these, 13 will become fully electric.
