says Boss section M BMW SUV on the road, along with selected independent technology
future BMW cars M will be displayed with all-wheel drive in addition to increased amounts of independent technology, although not the driving engagement account, according to the boss of BMW M division .
Speaking to Autocar, division of M said CEO Frank van MEEL was likely to appear on products such as M5 , in addition to SUVs increased power output, although pointed out which rear wheels always remain the default specifications.
“They [ M Automotive ] have come to the point where the outputs of the growing power will force them to do something,” he said. “They’re still wedded to rear-wheel drive for philosophical reasons, although which’s already getting a hard sell from the 600bhp plus in markets such as Canada in addition to Switzerland.”
boss said BMW M were engineers
“, will not be described as xDrive coming from” said’re working hard to improve traction in addition to stability control in addition to torque vectoring systems although hinted which the optional four-wheel drive was not inevitable him from the long run. which was. “We have to be sensitive about the equity built with rear-wheel drive.”

which seems which the integration i brand electric powertrain parts in cars M does not which remains elusive, because the technology is actually “still very heavy,” according to Van MEEL. “You can not add 150KG equipment for our cars without feeling which in dealing with,” he said.
which technology can trickle through the M products from the future, though. The head of BMW sales in addition to marketing, Ian Robertson, at the brand new York last month: “consumers want more performance in addition to less CO2, so there is actually a strong argument for the introduction of which technology in performance products from the future”

which is actually logical for M5 for these features, although the MEEL said which the performance style to get only a smaller group. “I can not imagine a day which M cars can drive you home coming from the road,” he said, “although the M cars will not get which [technology] for once.”
In view of which, which seems likely the next-generation M5 – who is actually required to arrive from the next year – which will be rear-wheel drive only, that has a limited amount of independent technology. although the next generation can be radically different.
