BMW AG won't break into the diesel market in the United States until 2006 at the earliest.

Tom Purves, president of BMW North America, said the automaker will firm up its diesel plans for the U.S. once low-sulfur diesel fuel becomes available in two years. BMW does not have the production capacity to offer diesels in the U.S. market right now, but would add capacity if demand warrants it, Purves said.

The first BMW diesel for the U.S., Purves said, is likely to be the X5 sport-utility, which is made in BMWs Spartanburg, S.C., plant. Ironically, the plant already builds X5 diesels for export to Europe.
