BMW porter & agrave; to debut the production version of its BMW XM high-performance Plug-in SUV by the end of the year. It is one of the cars that the German brand will launch; over the course of the year to celebrate 50 years of the M division. Recall, that the car manufacturer already has; presented the BMW M3 Touring and the sporty BMW M4 CSL.
Now, this SUV is; been intercepted on the Nurburgring circuit during a test session. Thanks to a spy video published on YouTube by CarSpyMedia, the possibility arrives; to be able to take a further look at this model.
LITTLE MISSING THE DEBUT
The BMW XM still appears disguised. However, you can & ograve; clearly note that its design will not differ. much from that of the concept car shown towards the end of 2021. Therefore, we will have a generously sized double kidney with horizontal development. Frontally, we will also find split optical groups as we already have; seen on the new BMW 7 Series.
Behind you can & ograve; glimpse the diffuser and above all the 4 exhaust system terminals . The taillights have a very subtle look. Unfortunately, the video does not show the interior. However, already we know that we will find a pattern already seen in the pi & ugrave; recent models of the German brand. Therefore, it will be; there is a large panel with inside the instrumentation display and that of the infotainment that will be able to rely on the iDrive 8 platform. Furthermore, as already anticipated by the German brand, the interior will offer great luxury.
Pet as far as the powertrain is concerned, already we know that there will be; a twin-turbo petrol V8 engine combined with an electric motor. The overall power will be & agrave; of 650 hp with 800 Nm of torque . The traction will be; whole wheat. The performances, therefore, will be decidedly very interesting. It is speculated that a & quot; Competition & quot; variant could also arrive. with an output of 750 hp like the concept car. Of this possible second model, we will know; more & ugrave; when BMW will present; this new high-performance SUV.
As for the battery , precise details have not yet been disclosed. However, since BMW talks about a distance of about 80 km in electric only , one can & ograve; think that the accumulator may have a capacity between 20 and 30 kWh.
