2020 BMW M340d xDrive revealed, 'no plans' for Australia

BMW will expand into diesel for its sub-M 3 Series range, with the reveal of the M340d xDrive ahead of its in-person debut at the Geneva motor show. Sitting alongside the M340i xDrive, the M340d is powered by a 3.0-litre inline-six engine augmented by a 48V mild-hybrid system. At least, it will be in Europe – BMW says there are "no plans" to bring it Down Under. It promises 250kW, down just 35kW on its petrol stablemate, but packs a whopping 700Nm – 200Nm more than the petrol can manage.
