Why BMW won’t take a break on its ‘Powerpack’ electric car

BMW has been working on its “Powerpack” electric car for the past six years, but it is now in its final stages.

The automaker is due to launch the electric version of its M3 car in the autumn of 2020, but the first test drive of the car on October 14 will take place at its own factory in the German city of Hamburg.

The test car, the latest in a series of tests for the new vehicle, will feature a 1.8-litre petrol engine with a maximum output of 100 kilowatts (220 horsepower), a five-speed manual transmission, and the latest version of the company’s advanced technology “PowerPack” system, which is capable of reaching 70km/h (48 mph).

The company has yet to reveal the price, but its main competitor, Tesla, is expected to launch a cheaper version of this car in 2019, as well as a smaller version in 2020.
