In other words, seems like the new standard BMW drivetrain will be electric-hybrid?
Most of the refreshes this year including Diesels have the same setup. I expect any refreshed engine from about 6 months ago onwards will have this 48v MHEV setup.

Stolen from the future models info thread:

The 48V system will expand to other models, possibly even F90. The next likely candidate for 48V is G01/G02.

G22/G23 complete worldwide lineup: 420d rwd and xdrive, 430d xdrive, M440d xdrive, 420i, 430i rwd and xdrive, M440i rwd and xdrive. The 48V system is going to be used in all diesels and M440i.
