The BMW iX M60 is the second electric car tuned by the M division and, two days before its scheduled reveal, it was leaked on the internet. A full set of images shows the top iX model, rumored to make more than 610 horsepower with an electric range of at least 350 miles. The iX M60 was scheduled to arrive in Las Vegas for the Consumer Electronics Show, but now BMW will present the car digitally.
At first glance, the BMW iX M60 looks almost the same as the xDrive50 model. Up close, you can see that the changes from the non-M version are very subtle. The biggest gift is the blacked out alloy wheels, which could be slightly larger in size. There are also M logos on the front fenders and a blacked-out M60 badge on the trunk. All logos are finished in black with a white outline to reflect the look of the badges seen on the XM concept last year. There is also an M Performance brake set with blue calipers.
No other specs were revealed, but we already learned last week from Automotive News that acceleration from a standstill to 62 mph (100 km / h) is said to take 3.9 seconds or 3.7 seconds to 60 mph (96 km / h). , therefore perfectly matching the BMW i4 M50. The BMW iX M60 is also likely to use the larger 111.5 kWh battery pack instead of the 76.6 kWh pack from the base BMW iX xDrive40.
BMW plans to bring the iX to the United States, but naturally we expect a higher price than $ 83,200 for the iX xDrive50. The market launch is scheduled for the summer of 2022, around the same time we expect an official EPA rating. If the BMW iX 50 has a range of 305-324 miles in the EPA standard, the iX M60 should be just below that.
