M2 - N55 Production Data (MY2016 to MY2018)

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Now that the N55 powered F87 M2 production has ended, here are the production numbers.

Production numbers:


Color take rate by country of specification:


Transmission take rate by country of specification:


Model year breakdown for the US/Canadian model:


M2s per 1,000,000 people:


UK market breakdown:


Australian market breakdown:

P.S. Don't forget to add your M2 to the www.BMWMREGISTRY.com

EDIT (2017): Due to a mistake on my end, the original post had an inaccurate data for the RHD model. I was missing an additional 19 cars. All the affected charts were updated.

Edit: the NA MT take rates are awesome. ROW though are pits.

I believe the MT percentage in North America would be even higher if more buyers had been able to custom spec their cars rather than simply accepting the configurations chosen by dealers.

Had I not been able to spec an MT, I would have passed on the M2 altogether. -scr

The pre configured cars should have been the manufacturer demos, not chosen by the dealer. Doesn't seem to make sense for a dealer to spec the car if there is a waiting list for orders.

It's all right there: 497+7393+3954=11,844 for rest of the world.
Or 14,839 total worldwide.

Good information, but the http://www.bmwmregistry.com/ sign-up doesn't appear to be a secure (https://) web site.

LBB has been tops since intro. In fact I think the rankings have not changed much since unless MG and AW swapped places.

I'd love to see the split between MY16 and MY17. Is that something you could add?

I'm not - plenty of vocal europeans on here making fun of the self diagnosed enthusiast americans for 6mt only mindset. For those driving who grew up with MT as "normal" on every car, DCT offers something seemingly more special and unique (as well as performance). There is a mindset that an expensive or performance or luxury car will not have a manual transmission as that is for cost saving and therefore only suitable for the peasants. In the US - there is more of a mindset of inferiority (both in skill and enthusiasm) if you drive an auto. As a euro born expat who grew up driving MT and now living in socal, I'm still on the MT side as I've yet to have more fun on the street with an auto, even a great auto

Happy that US and Canada are keeping the percentages high enough that we should continue to get the MT option

Guess what, this site is not secure too. Anyway, I agree with you, in this day and age setting up HTTPS connection is free and easy with resources like letsencrypt.org and should be done especially with the FireFox introducing the annoying nagging screen.

The only reason I posted the link to bmwmregistry.com is because I think it's a great resource for the M enthusiasts. I'm not actually related to the site and the most I can do is to email your concern to the guy who runs it.

Definitely doable for the US/Canada version.

If it's not too much trouble, could you add that the first post when you have a chance?

I suspect that manual percentage is somewhat supported by the fact most people order these cars rather than buy them off a lot. Between that and the fact this is an enthusiast car, it makes me think that 20% manual take rate across BMWs line is pessimistic.
