Klaus Draeger's comments on F10 oil burner

Among other comments, Klaus Dreager, member of BMW's development board, stated the following in an interview at the Detroit Auto show with Autoblogs Chris Paukert.

Also on the fuel-saving front, Draeger says that X5 diesel sales are going well in the States, accounting for roughly one-third of sales. Despite that, the X6 will not get a diesel variant, as the current model only has two or three years left in its life and it wouldn't make sense to introduce one this late in life. However, he wouldn't rule one out for the next-gen X6, nor was he willing to preclude a diesel's inclusion in the new X3. The new generation 3 Series and current 5 Series are also likely candidates for oil burning motivation, but they won't happen this calendar year.

Here's the link to the original article and sorry if someone sharper than me has posted this already.
