Most of the world is embracing electrification. We say most because BMW is staying dedicated to combustion, and even diesel, engines for the next 20 to 30 years.

According to a statement by BMW Group Board member Klaus Froelich reported by Automotive News Europe, the German brand has no intention of weening out combustion vehicles for a couple of decades. While the company will still commit toward electric endeavors, they will not give up gas and diesel engines.

A few of these vehicles will also be in conjunction with electricity as a hybrid. Details about their future vehicles were not detailed, but Froelich did remark on an interest with V-12 and V-8 engines in their hybrid vehicles to get the most power for their money.

It will be interesting to see how this affects states like California, who intend to ban all gas vehicles in the next 20 years.
