Exclusive: BMW’s 2017 Diesel Lineup Delayed Over Fed Scrutiny

Volkswagen’s massive diesel scandal is affecting other automakers.

BMW has confirmed to AutoGuide.com that the automaker’s 2017 diesel lineup is being delayed due to extra scrutiny from federal agencies. 'In light of recent events, agencies are taking longer to certify diesel models for the US,' said BMW spokesperson Hector Arellano-Belloc, 'but there has been no indication that BMW’s diesel models do not meet all requisite emission standards or that there is a defeat device in the vehicle.'

It appears that as a result of Volkswagen cheating on diesel emissions tests, U.S. federal agencies are being extra careful to test and certify diesel vehicles. It is likely that BMW isn’t the only automaker impacted by this. Arellano-Belloc also revealed that the delay is caused by “testing logistics” and that production of the models will not begin until homologation has been finalized.

In the U.S., BMW offers diesel variants of its 3 Series, 5 Series, X3 and X5. Last year, diesels accounted for about six percent of the company’s total U.S. sales.

BMW has not indicated when it expects its diesel models to be available at dealers.
