What specific modifications will be abandoned at BMW is still unknown. Last year, head of development Klaus Fröhlich reported that the company will definitely get rid of a 1.5-liter 3-cylinder diesel power unit, a 3.0-liter diesel engine with four turbines and a 6.6-liter V12 gasoline engine.

With this radical decision, BMW wants to optimize the transition to hybrid and all-electric powertrains. It is planned that their development will accelerate by a third. In addition, the company will abandon models with low sales. So, in April 2020, the I8 coupe and roadster will be removed from production (read more about this here).

As a result, by the end of 2022, BMW plans to save up to 12 million euros. In addition, as part of the optimization program, the number of multi-million fines for violation of environmental standards in the EU countries should be reduced.

The Bavarian company confirmed that in 3 years the range of electrified BMWs will expand to 25 models. Of which 13 will be fully electric.
