2020 has been a difficult year for many manufacturers, however, for BMW M GmbH has been a year of records.
Despite the effects of the pandemic on the market, BMW M has seen the possibility of increasing the number of BMW M cars sold by 6 per cent to 144,218 units globally..
Thanks to this result, the subsidiary company of the BMW Group with the status of an independent company, has significantly strengthened its leadership in the market within the competitive environment won for the first time in 2019.
In 2021, BMW M GmbH will present a high-performance car with an electric motor for the first time.
This model is part of the strategy “Power of Choice” through which the brand will give its customers the possibility to choose what they want.
2022 will be the year in which BMW M GmbH celebrate 50 years of existence and Markus Flasch has already announced that it will be a year full of surprises with very interesting special edition models.
This is all very good but, What the hell is BMW M doing making an electric M?. Well, very simple, adapt to what the future holds.
From what we understand, this electric BMW M, it won’t be an M car as suchBut something more of the M135i / M340i / M550i type. These cars were previously considered “M Performance” machines, but BMW now includes them under the umbrella of BMW M GmbH.
A more than likely candidate could be the BMW i4, a model almost ready for production that in its conceptual version produced 523 hp and was capable of covering 0 to 100 km / h in four seconds, a good figure, especially considering Note that we would talk about a battery of about 550 kg.
