BMW admits that all-electric versions of M cars like the M3, M4 and M5 are inevitable, but hybrids will come first
A pure electric BMW M car is ‘unavoidable’ according to BMW’s performance arm boss, Frank Van Meel.
Speaking exclusively with Auto Express at the recent Detroit Motor Show, Meel told us: “It will happen, but the question is when is that going to happen. Currently we still have a power to weight issue with electrification which makes that difficult to fit into a motorsports philosophy.”
