BMW Group has secured a major order from Ineos Automotive for the delivery of petrol and diesel engines.

The BMW TwinPower Turbo engines are destined for Ineos new off-road vehicle project in a contract which foresees the delivery of an unspecified five-digit number of engines.

“Our company is famous for efficient high-performance engines,” said BMW board member responsible for Sales and Brand BMW and Aftersales BMW Group, Pieter Nota. 

“We offer a broad range of premium, tailor-made drivetrain technologies and services for carmakers and other customers and believe this is a business area with real growth potential.”

The BMW Group operates a global sales and licencing business for its combustion engines, electric batteries and vehicle platforms as part of its dealings with clients inside and outside the car industry.

Both the development and production of engines belong to the core competencies of BMW Group.

Ineos Automotive was founded in 2016 by Ineos Group, a global manufacturer of chemical, oil and gas products.
