Industry leader BMW revealed its willingness to unveil a new car in 2021 that will appeal to fans of its models. BMW is seeking to launch the new M3, which is the most powerful third-class model ever, beginning in the year 2021, which carries new hopes for the German company to recover from its losses due to the new Corona virus "Covid-19" in 2020.

The launch of the duo M3 and M4

Meanwhile, BMW is also preparing to launch the M4 Coupé in early 2021, which it considers a new beginning.

The German company provided the two models with a 3.0-liter 6-cylinder engine that can generate 353 kilowatts (480 horsepower) in the standard model, while the Competition model gets a 357 kilowatt engine equivalent to 510 hp, with a maximum torque of 650 Newton .meter.

And the M3 and M4 cars can launch in silence and acceleration up to 100 km per hour in less than 4 seconds, with a top speed in the standard model of 250 km per hour, with a choice of models with a maximum speed of 280 km per hour if the customer desires.

BMW equipped the two cars with a four-wheel drive system and equipped with a manual and automatic transmission to ensure that the company provides its customers with the perfect driving as they prefer.

BMW has not yet announced the prices of the M3 and M4 models so far, but it is expected in the coming days that more details will appear on the cars prices, their launch time and their internal capabilities as well.

It is worth noting that the German company, like the rest of the auto industry in the world, is going through one of its worst years since the end of the Second World War.

A significant decline in BMW sales

BMW is experiencing a sharp drop in sales during the second quarter of 2020.

The German company announced that it is still highly affected by the repercussions of the emerging Coron virus "Covid-19".

Figures confirm lower BMW sales

BMW revealed that its sales decreased by 40% in the United States of America during the second quarter of the year compared to sales in the same period in 2019.

And BMW was able to sell 56 thousand cars during the second quarter, due to the closure of many showrooms for fear of spreading the Corona virus and transmission among visitors.

The economic crisis caused BNW to make a difficult decision to stop the production of the i8 six years after its debut.

BMW started the production of the luxury i8 model in 2014 and the car became very popular due to its attractive exterior design and impressive road performance.

Majestic farewell to i8 and corona virus cause

And the director of the BMW plant in Leipzig announced to about 150 workers who participated in the manufacture of the last car of the i8 model, saying goodbye to this model and not producing it again, because of the company's desire to reduce costs to face the crisis.

The i8 works with a hybrid engine that combines a regular fuel engine and an electric one, which made it a car that suits all tastes, especially with its distinctive sporty performance.

The demand for hybrid cars made by BMW increases compared to other models, which the German company takes into account and plans for this point in the future.

Cinematic experience of i8 before its disappearance

The i8 saw BMW's first experience in installing triple-dependent parts in the car as well as manufacturing the entire passenger compartment from carbon-reinforced plastic.

It is noteworthy that the i8 appeared in many international cinema films such as the impossible mission of the American star Tom Cruise, in addition to being a safety car for Formula E racing.

Although BMW was planning to produce this model until 2024, it responded to market demands and stopped producing it for fear of overcrowding.
