BMW M GmbH has started the first test drive of its concept vehicle, the all-electric BMW M xDrive which features a four-wheel drive system with four electric motors. With this move, BMW M has put to test the various aspects of the vehicle such as chassis control systems, hardware and software solutions that will go into the making of its fully electric high-performance cars in the future.

BMW M informed that the test drive will focus on a four-wheel drive system constituting four electric motors along with an integrated driving dynamics control system that will provide future electric vehicles with unparallel performance. The brand shared that within milliseconds, the power and torque generated by the electric motors can be dosed with minute precision that the load demand signalled via the accelerator pedal can reach a level of dynamics that cannot be attained using conventional drive systems.
