First, BMW M GmbH will develop models with hybrid power plants.
Head of division of BMW M GmbH, which specializiruetsya in the development of “charged” models of the German automaker, Frank van Mil said that fully electric M-the model is inevitable. He told this publication Auto Express.
“It (the advent of the electric car in the line of BMW M — note “Motor”) will happen. The only question is when it will happen. Now the problem concludes that the electric components add weight, and it’s hard to fit into our philosophy,” said van Mil.
He noted that the first BMW M GmbH will develop models with hybrid power plants. According to van Nice, his unit division is working with the BMW i (development of hybrid and electric vehicles), new batteries, motors and cooling systems.
In addition, van Mil once said that the hybrid sports car i8 will not be the M version, because, in his words, “it makes no sense”.
