First electrified BMW M to debut in 2021 – DRIVE

Easter eggs spotted in a fictional city M Town (film about advertising videos you can see about this city by link).

BMW M division reported sales of 144,218 emoks last year, up six percent from a year earlier. It also shared its plans for the future. From the nearest, the premiere should be noted BMW M5 CS, which will take place in January, and the release of the model M4 in the back cabriolet “For the warm season.” Work continued on the station wagon M3 Touring… But more interesting is that for the first time officially announced BMW M will appear this year. electrified “emki”.

More definitely, the debut date of the mysterious “emka” can be calculated from the Easter eggs in the form of a sticker on a pickup truck M3 (E93) Pick-Up 2011, which is responsible for the electric service in “em-town” and on which, in particular, a charging post with the inscription M Power was brought to the city. The “telephone” of the service (089 26 2021) can be an indication of the 26th week of the year (June 28 – July 4).

Another notable car in “m-town” is a prototype of a certain M-crossover under an awning (could it turn out to be a hybrid?). In general, about two dozen M-cars of different years were involved in an unusual advertising project, including rare ones like M2 by Futura 2000.

The Germans did not indicate whether they were talking about an electric car or a hybrid model. Maybe they have prepared a plug-in version of one of the “X”? There is also speculation about an M-version of the electric sedan BMW i4 and about the X8 M hybrid, but even the usual i4 and X8 not yet presented (we are waiting for them in 2021). It looks like their M variants are more likely to appear in 2022, when the 50th anniversary of “em” will be celebrated. BMW M CEO Markus Flush has pledged 2022 full of surprises and a scattering of special editions. And even more early to talk about a sedan M5 with electric motors. It will appear on the M5 generation changeover in 2024 as an electric car and a hybrid.
