BMW stops producing the Z4

BMW stops producing the Z4

Production of BMW’s second-generation Z4 roadster (E89) came to an end last week after more than 1.15 lakh units were assembled at Germany’s Regensburg plant. 

This version went into production way back in 2009, and the last car to come off the production floor was an sDrive35iS variant with an inline-six turbo N54 3.0-litre motor in an attractive orange paint shade. Sources added that demand for hardtops have dropped over the years, forcing this move.

BMW is currently working towards filling the empty space with a new model that could be called the Z5 (codenamed G29), and will go the soft top way to shed weight and also make way for a spacious boot. This new car is anticipated to be unveiled in the last quarter of 2017, and is also expected to be available in a hybrid version with help from Toyota Motor. Sources report that since the two car makers will be involved in this project, production of the new BMW roadster could kick off in 2018 at Magna Steyr’s factory in Graz, Austria. A factory that develops and assembles automobiles for other companies on a contractual basis.

It will be interesting to see how this goes, so stay tuned to Carwale for more on this.
