The company will stop making the car in August since it won’t conform to Europe’s more stringent emissions limits. The car, which makes 431hp from its turbocharged straight-six, needs a new particulate filter to meet the requirements set by the new Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP).
The next-generation 3-Series will be revealed in October, so BMW has decided to end the current car’s production alongside the rest of the 3-series range. The M4 and its 4-series siblings will remain on sale into the following year though.
A representative from the company said, the M4 would go off sale “for a couple of months” while it is rehomologated, but that it would return to showrooms with its WLTP-certified filter to meet emission norms.
