What if BMW M develops its own electric supercar? In any case, this is what an interview with the recent boss of the preparer, Marcus Flasch, suggests …
The BMW’s M division is changing. As BMW’s electric wing, the “i” division, gains momentum, the M brand must adapt to a changing market. We therefore discover many versions badged M, but which are not completely reworked by the preparer, including electric ones, called M50 for now (BMW i4 and BMW iX). But BMW M could operate well a return to its roots.
This is in any case what Marcus Flasch affirms, until recently at the head of BMW M. Interviewed by our German colleagues fromAuto Moto and Sport, he said the following: ” there will soon be a new full-fledged M model“. And by “full-fledged”, mean a model fully developed by M! It just hadn’t happened since the BMW M1 supercar from the 1970s.
Soon an electric supercar?
And besides, it is this last segment of supercars that BMW M could take by storm. Indeed, in his interview, Marcus Flasch specifies that there is ” a segment in which BMW M is not yet represented, and in which a lot is happening today« .
With its very wide range, BMW occupies many different segments… But not that of supercars. The latter is upset in recent years by the arrival of electric. Models like the Lotus Evija, Rimac Fridge or Pininfarina Battista, made headlines with their futuristic looks and wacky powers.
And what better than an electric supercar to praise the qualities of an electric BMW range? This paving stone in the pond could do a lot of good for zero emissions future sports of the brand, which should soon land with the iX and i4. All this remains a guess, but Marcus Flasch seems sure of him…
