BMW dropping the 'i' from petrol models

Breaking yet another long-standing brand tradition, BMW is apparently planning to drop the i from model names. When the F70 1 Series launches in 2024, the 118 and M135 are expected to be the first series petrol models not to carry the i since BMW went all-in on fuel injection in the 80s.

No news on the diesel models yet. You'd hope that they'd keep some way to differentiate the two, but considering recent decisions from the bigwigs in Munich, whether BMW will give those models the d or not is anyone's guess.

It’s just a cost cutting exercise. It will save them 50p a car not putting the I on it.
They are saving up because the E’s will be more expensive when all the cars are electric.
