BMW announced that it will release its first all-electric performance car by the end of 2021. The vehicle will form part of the German manufacturer’s M-division, and BMW said it could be ranked “alongside a current BMW V8”, according to Top Gear.
Markus Flasch, head of BMW’s performance department said he is looking forward to “presenting a completely new manifestation of the distinctive M feeling”.
The company was reluctant to confirm the model’s name, but experts speculate it might well be the upcoming BMW i4 that will be the newest electric powerhouse. If it is in fact the very same one, drivers will be satisfied with 500 horsepower, with dual motors and nearly 500km of range.
The EV will not only be greener, leaner and meaner than its SUV siblings, it will also arguably be sleeker and take on a super sporty look.
