BMW is searching ways to cut their large displacement engines production in order to focus on smaller and more efficient ones. The famous V8 engine, which was used in BMW’s high-end models such as the BMW 550i, 750Li or the new M3, is the first in line to suffer a decrease in production numbers.
BMW’s Union boss, Manfred Schoch, declared that a single shift operation working only four days week could fulfill the current demand for the V8 engine. Moreover, Schoch confirmed the high demand for four-cylinder engines. It is also confirmed that there will be twin-turbo and quad-turbo four-cylinder engines.
