BMW M division shifting
The CEO of BMW M division, Frank Van Meel, has stated that the future of their performance division will indeed shift towards electrification. BMW has already confirmed that EV's and hybrids will make up 40% of their production output by 2025. Van Meel believes that by the 2030 all BMW M models will either be hybrid or full electrics. Power to weight ratio is key on performance models and in the next 10 years we should see a large reduction in the size and weight of electrical components.
