Global car companies have shifted to electrification. Diesel engines will be on the verge of being eliminated in the future

Nowadays, as global auto companies are turning to electrification one after another, diesel engines may be on the verge of being eliminated, but they did not expect to come so soon.

Following the announcement by Nissan, Honda and Mitsubishi to stop production and development of diesel engines, BMW recently announced that it will stop production of the B57 series four-turbocharged inline six-cylinder diesel engine (B57D30S0) from the summer of 2020.


This also means that BMW’s 50d series models will face discontinuation, including M550d, X5/X6/X7 M50d.

It is understood that the B57 series diesel generators were released in 2015 and are used to replace the old N57 series diesel engines. Compared with the N57, the top-powered version of the B57 has four turbochargers. Taking the X7 M50d as an example, its maximum power is 400 horsepower and the peak torque reaches 760 N·m.

After the production of the B57 series is discontinued, the 40d version will become BMW’s most powerful diesel engine. At the same time, although the twin-turbocharged version of the B57D30T0 model used in the 40d model has been retained, it may be followed by a “light hybridization” treatment to cope with the higher emission regulations of the European Union.

In addition to BMW, Nissan, Honda and Mitsubishi have all announced the suspension of production and development of diesel engines. Volvo also stated that it will officially stop production of diesel engines/models in 2023.
