So say representatives of the company BMW, which is not going to abandon the use of traditional engines, despite the active development of electric motors
Yes, BMW is in no hurry to announce total electrification and make loud statements about the imminent abandonment of internal combustion engines. On the contrary, the concern is sure that the transition to electric cars will not happen overnight and the last car with the internal combustion engine will leave the conveyor no earlier than in 20-30 years. In an interview with Automotive News Europe, Klaus Fröhlich, head of research and development at the BMW brand, said that diesel engines will be produced for another 20 years, and gasoline engines at all 30.
Meanwhile, in 2021, BMW plans to present an updated version of the CLAR platform, which will initially be designed for plug-in hybrids with an electric motor and battery, providing a range of about 120 kilometers on a single charge. In addition, future BMW models on the new platform will receive an increased fuel tank to increase autonomy.
