According to UK publication Car magazine, it’s all true. If their report is to be believed, then that means a restyled and rebadged M2.

Given the way manufacturers are starting to commit to alternative powertrains, the iM2 should really not come as a surprise, but the numbers might leave your jaw on the floor. That’s because it’s been reported that the iM2 will boast one electric motor per wheel and a total output of 1 000 kW.
