The BMW M2 new generation model is internally codenamed G87, and it will come in five different driving modes, covering a wide range of driving conditions. This system involves the front axle when the rear wheels lack enough traction, and additional tensile force is required. BMW reportedly claims that this car will come with predictable behaviour under all conditions, even with a sporty driving style.

The next generation BMW M2 will come as the last-ever pure fossil fuel powered internal combustion engine equipped car from the German luxury automaker's performance-focused M division, as confirmed by BMW M division's CEO Frank van Meel. He also said that all future cars with an M badge would come as electrified models including pure electric and hybrid ones.
