Shulou( Report--, December 19, is the era of fuel engines coming to an end? Faced with the recent uproar of speculation, BMW flatly denied it, dismissing the suggestion that the company was about to give up the internal combustion engine as "complete nonsense" by its head of research and development, Frank Weber.

Earlier, sources said that BMW would no longer participate in the research and development of fuel engines as competitors increased their investment in electric transmission systems. In this regard, Weber flatly refuted: "first of all, this is not true." second, it is by no means true that fuel engine technology has run out of skills. " noted that the announcement coincided with the upcoming unveiling of BMW's next-generation electric vehicle platform, Neue Klasse. The first concept car has been unveiled, followed by the next generation of iX3, and even the expected four-motor M3.

Weber highlighted the Euro 7 emission regulations, which will be implemented on July 1, 2025, as an example of BMW's continued emphasis on fuel engine research and development. "there is still a lot of work to be done," Weber said. "this is not limited to Europe, but we are also actively promoting it in the United States and China."

At the same time, BMW has set an ambitious target to increase its share of zero-emission car sales to 15% by 2024.

Oliver Zipse, chief executive of BMW, has spoken out against the EU ban on fuel engines, arguing that it would spark a price war between European and Chinese carmakers and support synthetic fuels as an "important alternative" to fossil fuels.

It is worth mentioning that BMW streamlined the diesel engine product line of some models at the beginning of this year, halting the production of 20d series diesel engines and some in-line six-cylinder diesel engines, such as the M440d and 530d xDrive,X2 models, which the company attributed to falling market demand.
