REUTERS/Michael DalderBERLIN, Oct 22 (Reuters) - BMW(BMWG.DE)will stop making internal combustion engines at its main plant in Munich by 2024, its head of production said on Friday at a conference marking the start of production of its electric i4 model.

The ICE engines currently made in Munich will be produced in BMW's factories in Austria and the UK in future, production chief Milan Nedeljkovic said, though cars using the engines will still be assembled at the Munich plant.Still, by 2023 at least half the vehicles produced in Munich would be electrified - either battery electric or plug-in hybrid, the company said.

BMW has set itself a target for at least 50% of new global car sales to be electric by 2030, and CEO Oliver Zipse said at a conference last week the company would be ready with an all-electric offering if any market banned ICEs by then.read moreThe i4 battery-electric car was made on a joint assembly line with ICE and hybrid models such as the BMW 3 Series Sedan and Touring, the company said, a shift that cost 200 million euros ($233 million) of investment in production infrastructure. headtopics.com

A similar mixed assembly line is already under way at the automaker's Dingolfing plant, which produces the BMW iX alongside hybrid and ICE models.The new model will be prioritised in decision-making over where to allocate scarce chips, the plant chief Peter Weber said. The company was well-stocked in other raw materials, Nedeljkovic added.

BMW has previously said it expects to produce 70,000 to 90,000 fewer cars than it could have sold this year because of the chip shortage that has plagued automakers worldwide.It also committed to reducing emissions from transport logistics at the Munich plant, the company's biggest, to zero in the next few years, without giving a specific date.

This will be achieved by making greater use of rail transport and battery-powered trucks to transport vehicles in and around the plant, it said.Reporting by Victoria Waldersee Editing by Mark Potter and Nick MacfieOur Standards:More from ReutersSign up for our newsletter

Donald Trump's TRUTH Social hints at timeline of 2024 runThe former president's new social networking site is to officially launch at the beginning of 2022. Trump is a total failure, who has always been lied to his counterparts in other parties and the press, who's willing to show his positive aspects of how he had been elected as the president and why he had been so successful in being a president and a merchant. Move on. Quit giving him free press, it will fail like everything he touches. Help America by not giving him free press.

Fear is also an equalizer. Lol, he wants people to participate in elections but republicans don't recognize votes, elections? January 6 was all about republicans not recognizing votes...and elections I would recommend that they sit out all elections until they can vote responsibly.
