If you thought that BMW’s high-performance M division would just vanish into history due to the rise of electrification in cars and autonomous driving, you are thankfully mistaken! BMW has recently unveiled its Vision M NEXT, which is a 600 hp mid-engine supercar that is meant to show off the bright, new M technology of the future.

The Vision M NEXT is powered by a hybrid system which consists of two electric motors, combined with a turbocharged inline-four engine to create a total of 600 hp. The concept can be driven completely in EV mode in either rear- or all-wheel drive, or in hybrid all-wheel drive with the gasoline engine contributing power to the rear axle. BMW has also stated that the M NEXT can do 0-62 in 3 seconds flat and hit a top speed of 186 mph. The Vision M NEXT can also drive up to 62 miles in pure EV mode.

If you’re a BMW enthusiast, you may have noticed that the BMW Vision M NEXT takes inspiration from the BMW i8 and the iconic BMW M1. They’ve incorporated a mid-engine profile and swooping gullwing doors, as well as black side skirts, unfinished, to show off the recycled carbon fiber.

The BMW Vision M NEXT has an illuminated, laser-etched kidney grille, geometric side air intakes, and integrated headlights, all of which achieve the sporty presence that is desired, with just a few precise lines.

The most intriguing aspect of the BMW Vision M NEXT is called the “BOOST Pod”, which is an active driver interface that is meant to provide the driver with the most in-depth experience possible.

The Interior truly focuses on the driver, with a cut-down steering wheel and a curved, three-screen gauge cluster. The bucket seats are separated by the center console, which includes two cup holders.

The BMW Vision M NEXT’s Boost Pod envelops the driver in the ultimate interface. The transparent Curved Glass Display, contoured bucket seats, and Full Augmented Reality Head-Up graphics adapt to drive modes for an intuitive, focused driving experience like never before.

The electrified sports car of the future, the BMW Vision M NEXT concept represents the progress of innovation while never losing sight of the power and performance of its legendary ancestors.
