BMW confirms: "The next M3 will be an electric car"

BMW has confirmed that the next M3 in the range will be an electric car. However, fans of the internal combustion engine need not go home crying.

BMW has confirmed that the next M3 will have something of a split personality. The car comes both as a pure electric car and with a combustion engine. Carsales writes this in an interview with BMW board member Frank Weber. The upcoming electric car will apparently be based on the 'new class' platform that BMW has dedicated exclusively to electric cars. However, fans of BMW's internal combustion engines can get their blood pressure down again. There will also be a new M3 with a combustion engine. And it will be sold alongside the electric M3. Frank Weber calls it 'necessary' to have both. Both and so to speak. There is already speculation as to whether BMW has plans to turn the electric M3 into a 'mega car' like Lamborghini has plans for with their first fully electric car. READ ALSO: All Danish hydrogen stations will be shut down completely The term 'mega car' means 'just' that the engine – or engines – produce at least one megawatt or more. In horsepower, this corresponds to 1,360 units. Fran Weber then also confirmed that the new one can handle that kind of force. Without, however, definitively saying anything about the number of horsepower. But if BMW is serious about that type of effect, the next M3 – or at least one of them – will have more than twice as much horsepower as the most potent M3 right now. The M3 CSL has 560 horsepower to do well with from the 3-liter straight six with twin turbos. Known by BMW enthusiasts under the factory code B58. An engine the next petrol-powered M3 will probably continue with. BMW has said that the brand can and will develop engines for the upcoming and increasingly strict emission requirements Euro 7.
