BMW M GmbH introduces its first ever high-performance car with an electrified drive system during its 50th anniversary celebrations.
A plug-in hybrid system comprising a V8 petrol engine and an exceptionally powerful electric motor endows the BMW XM with incredible performance. Luxurious ambience and a new M Hybrid drive system will delight performance connoisseurs who embrace all the ecologically advanced options that provides fuel consumption levels that have never been achieved in these cars. Overall combined output of 480 kW by an electric drive system and the newly developed, classically high-revving V8 engine with cutting-edge M TwinPower Turbo technology provides propulsive power instantly with 800 Nm. Sprinting from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds, is accompanied by a fantastic sounding V8. An M Hybrid button provides one of three operating modes, including an ELECTRIC setting for cruising with zero local emissions at speeds of up to 140 km/h and over a maximum distance of about 80 km. A BMW XM LABEL RED will be added early in 2023 to become the most powerful road-legal series-produced car in the history of BMW M GmbH with 550 Kw and 1000 Nm on tap.
The BMW XM is also the first BMW M original since the BMW M1 and production has started at the BMW Group Plant Spartanburg in the USA and market introduction in South Africa will be from the second quarter of 2023.
