BMW: The next M3 will be electric, it will be released in 2027

Confirming the words of Frank van Meel, head of BMW’s M division, BMW production manager Frank Weber clearly stated that the next generation M3 will be electric, that is, a purely electric model with a means of storing the battery.

The next generations of the BMW M3 and M4 are expected to go on sale sometime between 2027 and 2028, with the German company stating that each new generation of an M car should perform better than the model it replaces. And this will be done with the electrification of the models.

The 3.0-litre straight-six (S58) engine that nestles under the hood of the current M3 will be upgraded to pass future emissions standards, with Weber stating:

It’s a nice engine, we’ll definitely get it to pass Euro 7 and stuff, so it’ll happen. We will not have two different categories, but there will be a coexistence of solutions [κινητήρων εσωτερικής καύσης και ηλεκτρικών] in the market, which is necessary.
