BMW rejects government bans of the combustion engine, although the Munich team is currently creating new positions for the expansion of their electrical division. Instead, there will even be new generations of petrol engine in addition to new Stromer.

This clear statement by BMW development board Frank Weber is part of an overall view of electromobility, which he develops in the current edition of the "Auto Motor und Sport". He announces completely new combustion engines, calls the plug-in hybrid drive a necessary transition technology, sees better batteries and more efficient electric motors and does not want to put a customer under pressure.

"Need burners for a few more years"

WEBER development director will continue to offer all models with newly developed, significantly more economical combustion engines. "One thing is certain for us: We need the ultra-modern combustion engine for a few more years to effectively reduce CO2 emissions in the car sector globally," he says to the sheet.

That is why BMW is working on a new generation of engine: Otto, diesel, six -cylinder, eight -cylinder. According to Weber, they are also technologically equipped for the upcoming exhaust gas standards.Set an end date for combustion engines does not make sense for Weber. First the alternative infrastructure must be structured. "Of course the future is electrical, only if we now force customers into an electric car and they are all on their way to vacation at the charging station in traffic jams, then nothing is won," warn Weber.

“This transition will not be ended in five or ten years.“Plug-in models with a growing electrical range considers Weber consider it particularly important in the transition phase. “A PHEV that creates 80 to 100 km purely electrically, most customers are usually moved purely electrically. That plays a really important role in the transition.“In addition, not all world markets are ready for electromobility. "In 2025 there will also be many people who cannot drive an electric car because the necessary infrastructure is not available to them," warn Weber and states: "But – and that is very important to me – we will not be able to do so either necessary to have to choose between the new and the supposedly old."

Electric cars can also be displayed without funding

In electric cars, the development board sees such large and efficiency potential that the cars should be profitable in the future even without government funding. “Even with an electric motor, which is known for its high efficiency, there is still a lot going on. What happens at higher speeds? How degraded the engine? What does the most attractive design look like? There is really still a lot of potential. We develop and build the engines ourselves, which of course helps us.“Weber also sees a lot of efficiency and cost potential for the battery cell. “In the case of the cell, the claim to reduce costs by the next generation by 30 percent.“Weber wants to generate a return with the next generation of BEV like with a combustion engine. Accordingly, BMW will no longer plan with government subsidies for the purchase of electric cars. “We do not assume in our planning. We are talking about really great volume, the "new" normal ", so to speak.“(Aum)

  1. Sensible attitude.
    I can live with the attitude of how BMW represents you. Or can we all, privately like as … I can live with the attitude of how BMW represents you. Or can we all live, privately and professionally, (about). As a professional driver with around 15000km per month in European traffic, the purchase of an expensive electric car is out of the question.The range and loading time realistic. KFZ companies can continue to look after their combustion groups (first of all) and many other industries can reliably plan and calculate again.Financing for e vehicles from taxpayers is a cheek, because why do I have to.000 € expensive Tesla, or other overpriced brands, forced to finance?And also pay violently at the petrol pump, as well as in the case of house current and gas.Finally puts this hysteria off the world with insane expensive, half -baked, projects and forced measures.

  2. D and Europe is not everything
    I drive a BEV and don’t want to go back to the combustion engineer. But what fits me doesn’t have to fit everyone else. I can load at home and at work and load the infrastructure in D, Austria and Italy is now good. Many who should write here should look outside of the bubble Germany. In many parts of the world it will take a long time for electromobility to work. Under the aspect and please read carefully, BMW makes it right to design the transition period and to make it the right offer for your customers

  3. Local shortage
    Because of the demographic change, we are heading for a massive shortage of workers. If workers are released in the auto industry, this will benefit the rest of the economy.

  4. Wait !
    Of course, this is currently politically driven and extremely subsidized. There are also e-cars in most countries, but rather parallel to the combustion engineer. That won’t change the next decades, at least with this technique. Most of the writers have not existed for a long time, so it is still being built worldwide…..And the climate is still available…….

  5. question
    Build the manufacturers of e-drives because customers want it? You should always ask yourself why there is, but with the e-lobby my no chance, they have come in yours "subsidized", You can’t go back there. If there are more electric drives instead of gasoline, diesel or hybrid when manufacturing, and the electric drives will not get rid of them, then I can only hope that the e-lobbyists have a few hundred billionaires under their ranks who have these things a thousand Buy, otherwise 2035-2040 is over with automotive. Until excited when this turn should come completely on an electric drive, if the material is running out to manufacture these drives at the latest. And honestly, the climate target is a farce high 3, none takes responsibility for this bill.

    In addition to the electrical lifting piston engines. This is future -oriented and environmentally protecting.

  7. BMW is absolutely right
    customers "put under pressure" And why should you not produce and develop a proven drive technology further? The future will show how technology develops and state and politics should not intervene in technical development with laws and regulations.

  8. Sign of the time not recognized
    Some forists here in the blog apparently have not recognized the signs of the times, as well as some "Retro spirits" at BMW. The combustion engine is out, but something of! This is politically a long time decided and this will also not change visions from the e-fuel-powered combustion engine, which will never exist. The automotive technique of the future will be based on the electrical drive, these are the signs of time and who comes too late, that is well known. Always forward, never backwards, electromobility in your run neither ox nor donkey stops…

  11. Right decision
    M.E. is the future of the automotive industry in combustion engines that are operated with synthetic fuels or with hydrogen. The highly praised e-mobility will only be used for city cars with short-haules … even if the federal government is trying to push it by all means.

  12. Thank God
    The technology is not yet ready, but it will definitely be in a few years. Until then, many people want to drive a car and not a cell phone that all naselang has to be charged and the battery does not last long.
