Any insider powertrain hints? B48 + more tune but is there any eboost going on?


Hopefully from factory looks a little more like this

Wait, what? I am completely lost - I did not know they were doing these anymore? This surely can't be a straight-six, right?

Something is wrong with the footage. The trees are NOT green/yellow right now. They don't have any leafes so these are old scenes from at least last fall or even older. Maybe these are just the first M135i prototype.

I'm assuming this is a even further tuned B48...?

So the nomenclature will get even worse? We will have two different 40i engines (and a number of different tunes)? How many niches does BMW need to fill?

Watch again there are 2 different cars too. The grilles are a giveaway, plus you're a re probably correct, just a timing release!

One of them is filmed in october 2018: https://www.autogespot.com/bmw-1-series-f20/2018/10/23

And the other one in october 2019: https://www.autogespot.com/bmw-m140i-2019/2019/10/26

Will there be a M140i again? For sure. At some point we will also have a 145, 345 and maybe even a 555 . For me this video just looks like click bait.

I read somewhere that an M140e or something to that effect was under consideration... who knows it's up to BMW, if they want to compete with the A45s and RS3 hatch then they'll do it. If they don't, they won't.

It's rumoured that a M140e could come, with the following specs:

M140e = B48 + hybrid
Power: 405Pk & 500nm 4 cyl

Some tuners already know about this engine, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
