No more diesels in North America for BMW as of 2019

Here’s another case where it was only a matter of time before a decision was to be made.

If you’re keeping track, Volkswagen, Audi and Porsche have cancelled their diesel offering recently. As well, Mercedes shut down diesel engine options for its lineup in the last year. This left BMW as the sole luxury car brand to offer the technology in a market that is quickly turning towards hybrids, plug-in hybrids and sooner rather than later, full EVs.

This means that if you’re in the market for a diesel BMW, the time to head to your local dealership is now as the plug is expected to be pulled by years’ end.

As of now, your options are the 2018 328d, sedan and wagon, the new and short-lived 540d sedan and the X5 xDrive35d. If you were hoping for an X7 diesel, sorry…

BMW will replace these torque-rich and frugal vehicles with more iPerformance cars in the near future.
