New BMW M EV Begins testing

It looks like a new era of all-electric M cars may come sooner than we think


BMW M GmbH is following in the footsteps of BMW and moving towards electrification as they have confirmed that they have begun testing a BMW M EV primed for an innovative drive and chassis control systems. Their full release is attached here.

This concept BMW M EV will feature four electric motors, one for each wheel which will make this car four-wheel drive. These motors will be paired to an integrated driving dynamics control system which BMW M GmbH is confident will “provide an unprecedented level of performance and experience.”

For those who are worried this BMW M EV will not be able to live up to the greatness that comes with the M badge, BMW M GmbH is underscoring their development expertise to ensure a purely electric drive system that is dynamic, precise and agile. In short, this car will be worthy of the M badge.

Moreover, the testing of this BMW M EV coincides with the 50th anniversary of BMW M GmbH and with this, BMW M aims to preserve the unmistakable performance of their future M cars while adding new elements to make for a more multidimensional drive.


Franciscus van Meel, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW M GmbH said, “On our anniversary, we are not only looking back, but above all also looking forward. Before the end of the year, production of the BMW XM, our first high-performance car featuring a V8 M hybrid drive, will commence.”

“Together with our fans all over the world, we are also looking forward to our entry into the LMDh category of the North American IMSA endurance racing series, in which we will also be competing with an eight-cylinder hybrid turbo engine in Daytona and at other events in 2023, as well as in the WEC racing series at Le Mans a year later.” He added.

Not much is known about this new BMW M EV concept car but it sure does raise a fair many questions. However, these questions and the answers to them are better left to be discussed another time as I do not want this article alone to be several pages long.

For now, we should just wait until we get more information about this new BMW M EV as I am genuinely excited to find out more details about it and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for BMW M cars.

Do you think this new BMW M EV will live up to the M nameplate or not? I personally think it could outperform any M car in most metrics but we shall have to wait and see.
