Those who are going to buy a new BMW car in the near future may face an unpleasant surprise: according to the source, the manufacturer confirmed that due to the lack of microcircuits, it is forced to exclude touchscreens from the configuration of some models, so as not to stop their production.

The following models are said to be available without touchscreen: BMW 3 Series, BMW 4 Series Coupe, Convertible and Gran Coupe (excluding i4), BMW X5, BMW X6, BMW X7 and BMW Z4.

The source recalls that not so long ago, BMW with iDrive did not have a touchscreen at all, since all control of the infotainment system screen was carried out via the iDrive controller. In fact, the company has now rolled back to this option.

When the screens in BMW cars will again become touch-sensitive, the manufacturer did not announce.

It remains to add that the lack of a screen is offset by a $ 500 discount.
