To please both worlds, BMW will keep the manual transmission in the plans for the next M2 and offer the clutch pedal alongside an optional configuration with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Although not mentioned in the report, and according to spy photos of the BMW M2 Coupe 2023, for the first time, the M2 is expected to receive individual colors, with the coupe likely to be a little bigger and heavier as it was with the M4 .

A carbon fiber roof should compensate for some of the weight gains and lower the center of gravity for better handling as well. The standard Series 2 Coupe has not yet been revealed in its next generation iteration, but the author of the article reports that the Motor1 team has seen its fair share of M2 spy photos.

A new report from BMWBLOG aims to shed light on how the smallest M car will evolve into the G87 model, which is due to debut next year and will go on sale in 2023.

Probably the last (relatively) small M car to ‘jump-start’ electrification, the new M2, is reportedly following the same model structure used by the M4. The base variant will be followed by Competition, the CS, and possibly a derivative of the CSL later in the line. Even in its standard configuration, the performance coupe claims to have 450 horsepower and just over 400 pound-feet (542 Newton-meters)
of torque.

According to the same report, customers will be able to choose from a variety of 19- and 20-inch alloy wheels. Speaking of personalization, the individual colors are supposed to make their debut on the M2 for those who want to spend more for a more exclusive painting currently being reserved for larger and more expensive models.

BMW is also implementing some important changes in terms of production, as the Euro-spec M2 will be manufactured at the Leipzig plant in Germany, while the North American version will be assembled in Mexico at the San Luis Potosi plant. The last scale production in operation since 2019, with the current generation of the 3 Series Sedan, has a production capacity of up to 175,000 vehicles per year. The new M2 is expected to go into production in December 2022 and will follow the already announced regular Series 2 Coupé that debuts in just a few weeks.
