According to R&D head Klaus Froehlich, BMW will produce diesel engines for another 20 years and petrol engines for at least 30 years (his statement from Automotive News Europe). At the same time, Froehlich says that the V12s and V8s “may not have a future”.

Among other things, Froehlich has noted that BMW plans to update the CLAR in 2021. The updated platform, according to Froehlich, will allow the company’s plug-in hybrids to have a drive range of 80, 100 and 120 km in all-electric mode.
