The BMW XM will be available in plug-in hybrid form only, exclusively as an M model, and it will be the most powerful BMW M car ever to go into series production, which will start at the end of next year. It will have an all-electric range of up to 50 miles.
The BMW XM will be the brand’s first standalone vehicle since the BMW M1 in the year it celebrates its 50th anniversary.
It will also be the first electrified high-performance model in the BMW M portfolio. The newly developed M Hybrid drive system in the BMW Concept XM combines a V8 engine and a high-performance electric motor to develop maximum output of 550 kW/750 hp and peak torque of 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft).
The BMW Concept XM debuts the new, progressive front-end design for BMW’s luxury-class models – and looks less boxy than the BMW iX. The XM sits on 23-inch alloy wheels.
The series-production BMW XM will be produced from the end of 2022 at BMW Group Plant Spartanburg in the USA, the most important sales market for the new model.
