As an electric car, the BMW M3 will 'beat everything', says the boss

A BMW M3 as an electric car? It sounds like sacrilege to some, to others like the future. However, the director loves the idea.

There will be nothing that can compete with an electric BMW M3. At least not if you ask the director of BMW's M division, Frank van Meel.

In an interview with Motor Trend, van Meel states that 'an electric BMW will beat everything'. Here the director is thinking about the quadruple electric motors that the upcoming top model of the Germans' upcoming top model will be equipped with.

Another BMW boss, Frank Weber, who manages the brand's development process, has already more than hinted that a BMW with an output of one megawatt – ie 1,340 horsepower – is on the way.

However, it all floats in unconfirmed uncertainty. But something completely third is that the directors' corridors in Munich must already have given the green light to an electric M3 Touring.

However, this does not mean that BMW is scrapping the internal combustion engine. On the contrary. Because the Germans insist that petrol, diesel and electric cars must be built side by side.

And perhaps neither BMW nor any other car manufacturer that sells cars in Europe is in a hurry to develop electric cars anyway.

Because in the midst of car brands that, one by one, regret the goal of only building electric cars in Europe by 2030 at the latest, a former member of BMW's board of directors is coming forward. Pieter Nota, who until last year had something to say about the brand's decisions, does not believe that the EU will reach the ban of the internal combustion engine at all.

– A new EU Commission will, I suspect at least, decide on a postponement or adjustment of the ban no later than 2026. It's just inevitable, I think, says Nota.
