Dingolfing. Four months after production of the new BMW 8 Series Coupé ramped up in Dingolfing, the BMW 8 Series family is joined by another new addition from Lower Bavaria. Earlier this week, BMW Group Plant Dingolfing began series production of the new BMW 8 Series Convertible, which will be built alongside BMW 5 Series and 7 Series variants on a single assembly line. The BMW Group has invested a total amount in the low three-digit-million-euro range in the new model family at the site in Lower Bavaria, strengthening Dingolfing’s role as the lead plant for the upper luxury-class segment.

Newly developed textile soft top

The driver and passengers on board the new BMW 8 Series Convertible are protected from the elements by a classical soft-top. The multi-layered roof stands out with its weight-minimising design and superb acoustic insulation.

The new BMW 8 Series Convertible comes with a black soft-top as standard, with an Anthracite Silver effect variant available as an option. The soft-top opens and closes fully automatically. 15 seconds is all it takes.

Two model variants available from launch

Two engine choices will be available when the new BMW 8 Series Convertible goes on sale in March 2019: A V8 engine in the BMW M850i xDrive Convertible (combined fuel consumption: 9.9 – 10.0 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 229 – 225 g/km)* delivers impressive power that can be experienced in particularly exhilarating fashion with the top down. The latest generation of the 4.4-litre eight-cylinder engine has been completely redeveloped to deliver a performance topping out at 530 hp and a torque of 750 Nm.

The BMW 840d xDrive Convertible relies on a diesel engine (combined fuel consumption: 6.3 – 5.9 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 165 – 155 g/km)* unlike anything else in the competitive environment to deliver superior traction and low fuel consumption. The 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder diesel power unit generates a maximum output of 320 hp and a maximum torque of 680 Nm. 

Both engine variants comply with the Euro 6d TEMP emissions standard. Power transmission is achieved through the eight-speed Steptronic sport gearbox and BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
