I think they’ve already said the three cylinder diesel (B37) and quad turbo six cylinder diesel (B57 S0) are ending production by next year. So those are definitely part of the 50%.

And do they still sell a G11 or G12 M760i with RWD in some regions? Not sure, but as you point out, we know it’s gone once the G70 arrives.

I suspect that you’re correct in concluding that a lot of this will come from the legacy UKL configurations that are soon to go away. Although, one wonders if the new MINI platform, which will no longer be shared with BMW, will end up adding some back in. Perhaps those are not being included. I suspect all vehicles on the platform will be PHEV or BEV anyway, so probably no diesels and probably no manual transmissions either.
All G12 M760Li are 4wd but some Rollers are still rwd.

I'm not sure when the new Mini will be coming but as they just launched the new Mini-E and I haven't heard anything you'd assume it is at least 3 years away. I didn't realise the new platform was going to be unique for them. If that is the case then why do we have to put up with the UKL cars....sigh.
