Slightly related to this, BMW now has confirmed the 48V mild hybrid system (starting) in the 520d from November in today's PR about the november "Modellpflegemaßnahmen".

Finally. Those cars are out there already, even listed in the ETK, I was really confused by the absence of any PR.

Thanks for that! High time BMW got on board.

I see that, while diesel engines are being prioritized across the board (for obvious reasons), they are starting with vehicles in the 5 and 6 families for gasoline engines. It makes sense that larger, heavier vehicles might benefit more, but it’s interesting that the 7, 8, and X7 gasoline engines aren’t in the initial batch. No V8s either.

I think the real emphasis here is on European bestsellers.

Why would they ship 48V on all Diesels except the 330d or did you omit it by accident? Even more so as other models do seem to get a 30d 48V, like the 5er, X3 or X5 etc.

Good point. Although it would still be a little surprising to me to know that the 540i, 640i, X5 40i, and X6 40i are significantly more popular than the 740i, 840i, and X7 40i in Europe. I'm sure the diesels are more popular in all models, but I would expect that, when the 6 cylinder petrol models do sell, it would be the case for the 7/8 families as much as (if not more than) the 5/6 families.

I was wondering the exact same thing.

I've cleaned up the SOP list a little bit. For example, M8GC was missing altogether - its SOP is in November.

I had a drive in the M135i xDrive followed by drive in the M235i xDrive. The M235i is exceptional. North America is really going to love that car. It will appeal to new customers.

Are you referring to the M235i Gran Coupe, Scott?

I don't know why, but all F22's except M240i (and F87 M2C) can't be ordered/configured in Germany anymore. Thought EOP was in 2021?

I noticed the same. Maybe they lack production capacity at the Leipzig plant where they also produce the new 1-series.

If that's the case that would he really stupid planning on BMWs side? Also, even if thats the case I think they'd still accept orders and probably just increase the shipping/production time.

On the other side though, you can still configure them on the swiss website

MY2020 starts in November and goes until October 2020. That will be just over seven years since it started production back in July 2013. It's not known how much longer BMW intends to produce this vehicle, but I would not be surprised to see it go into 2021 or beyond. BMW is reportedly developing an electric version of the next 2 Series AT, which could eventually pick up the torch from the i3, but it will not be on the market for at least a couple more years.
