A popular car model is supposed to run purely electrically – and produce over 1,300 hp.
The premium engine manufacturer will launch the new high-performance electric vehicle – and it is the first of its kind.
BWM is expected to launch an electric version of its M3 model called Heart of Joy in 2027.
The government announced that BMW will invest heavily in “transforming” its MINI factory in Oxford towards an all-electric future.
The industry giant has already made the decision to discontinue one of its most famous MINI cars in favor of a new electric model.
Now BMW development boss Frank Weber boasts that the improved M3 system will combine everything related to driving performance in “one integrated control unit”.
“This is a controller that has taken our experience over the last 20 or 30 years and put it into a controller,” he said Express.
In its most powerful version, the high-end electric vehicle produces 1,341 horsepower and was designed with luxury in mind.
The first electric M Line is expected to be a hit with BMW fans, with thin LED strips replacing the bulky headlights and adding a longer version of the company’s iconic kidney grilles.
Another improved feature, air intakes on the front bumpers, fenders and rear doors will help improve attainable miles per gallon, much to the delight of drivers.
The BMW M Line has proven to be a favorite among car enthusiasts since its launch in 1986.
Current models offer an impressive 0-60 mph acceleration time of just 6.5 seconds and can reach speeds of up to 230 mph.
Speaking to AutoCar, Frank van Meel, head of the high-performance M series, explained: “The story of the M3 is eternal
“Every time we change the story of the engine, from four-cylinder to six-cylinder, from eight-cylinder to six-cylinder and a turbocharger, the story continues.”
“Maybe it will be electric – but if so, it will always be an M3.”
This comes as data shows electric vehicle prices have been cut by almost a quarter due to a loss of driver confidence.
Research from online car marketplace AutoTrader found that the average price of a used electric vehicle fell 21.4 percent this month.
This comes after the UK Prime Minister confirmed a delay to his ban on new petrol and diesel cars.
It was originally supposed to come into force by 2030, but has now been postponed to 2035.
In a major speech in Downing Street, the Prime Minister praised The Sun’s Give Us A Brake campaign, which upended expensive net zero policies.
He said: “What I’m focusing on today is something that The Sun in particular has been championing for a long time.”
“It’s about finding a fair, proportionate and pragmatic way to achieve net zero while taking the country along with us, and that’s what we’re delivering today.”
