The upcoming M2 will come based on the 2 Series Coupe which first broke cover in 2021. Needless to say, it will sport M-specific suspension changes, bigger brakes, reworked chassis, and performance-oriented interiors, as per the M-spec requirements. In addition to that, it will also feature larger wheels along with grippier tyres, sportier and lighter body kit, and bucket seats to keep the occupants in place.

Speaking with Bimmer Today, BMW M division's CEO Frank van Meel said that the new BMW M2 will arrive as a puristic driving machine. "We will see increasing electrification in other vehicles, of course in different forms, starting with the 48-volt electrical system and plug-in hybrids to fully electric drives. Seen in this way, the M2 will be the last M with a pure combustion engine drive and also without electrification scope such as a 48-volt onboard network, yes," he further added.

The car is expected to hit the international showrooms sometime later in 2022. In the meantime, BMW is preparing to reveal the M3 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed later in June.
