Little by little the new models of the market are adapting to the new times, where sustainable mobility is in the foreground and they have thought of everything at any time. At BMW they are always one step ahead and now we have surprised with a new stage in their electrification phase of a range of really unique and surprising models. Now, they have put on the tracks a really surprising prototype, which has four electric motors and a practically unique control system.
BMW M GmbH begins the next chapter in its transformation towards electric mobility. These tests innovate in chassis control and transmissionn, thanks to a multidisciplinary team of developers who go a step further and test the latest hardware and software solutions designed for future high-performance all-electric cars.
The tests focus on a four-wheel drive system comprising four electric motors and an integrated driving dynamics control system, which together provide an unprecedented level of performance and expertise. This sophisticated system combines innovative control and thus redefines the combination of dynamism, precision and agility.
In order to get now on the road transmission and chassis technology designed for future high-performance cars Purely electric to test and adjust the units, engineers at BMW M GmbH have developed a test vehicle that carries the right genes, both in terms of typical M dynamics and in the field of electric mobility. Based on the BMW i4 M50, a purely electric coupe has been created with a body modified in the typical BMW M GmbH style, whose wide wheel arches allow the integration of specifically manufactured high-performance front and rear axle designs.
The core of the revolutionary high-performance traction system What now makes its debut on the road in the test vehicle is an electric M xDrive all-wheel drive system with four electric motors. At BMW they are not satisfied with going easy and now they are preparing to face the definitive evolution.
