In a October 2020 investor presentation slide, BMW confirmed that the electric iX1 compact SUV and i7 sedan would arrive in 2022, followed by the i5 sedan in 2023. Five other unnamed EV's expected by 2023 could be seen in the product roadmap but BMW won't reveal what they are yet.

An electric M2 has been spotted, that might be something to add to the list of upcoming BMW EVs.

Great find that's another exciting one.

Not surprised we're seeing it happen at that level after reading about the ambitious plans they have: "The automaker plans for about half of total sales to be fully electric by the end of the decade, it said on Wednesday. The company also confirmed that its Mini brand will only sell battery-powered cars by the early 2030s."

Mini is a perfect way for BMW to test out a fully electric lineup and any logistics as they shift their full lineup to electric.

Does anyone think this electric M2 could actually be a test mule for something else not far off from its footprint?

"Ok, so what is this exactly? It can be one of two things. Either BMW is actually developing a fully electric M2 or this is a test mule for a different EV. Regardless of its identity, we are fairly certain you won't be able to buy a zero-emissions M2 with this body style since the current 2 Series is months away from being replaced by a new model.

The conventionally powered M2 has already been confirmed to retain its inline-six, rear-wheel-drive recipe, so this mysterious vehicle isn't it. We have plenty of spy shots of the next-gen M2 with the full production body and everything, meaning this must be an early test mule for something else. If BMW isn't actually planning an electric companion for the new M2, the fact it's using this body style and size could hint at a small electric sports car."

I may be wrong, but with that schedule I am afraid that bmw has fallen far far behind. All competitors are focusing only on EV.
When BMW models arrive, most brands will have their second or third generation. Check the iX3 and compare it to actual models like Model Y, ID4, Q4, MatchE, KIAs, Hyundai's... without forgetting the chinese (NIO etc) and new future entrants, like Apple, Huawei, etc.
The actual executive board should be fired.

We can add another car to this list. I think it's safe to say the electric M2 is coming. Supposedly it'll have 4 electric motors and produce 1,341 horsepower!
