BMW has brought the best of its X, M and i labels together with the new iX M60.
The BMW iX M60 is the second production vehicle from BMW M, following the i4 M50. The iX M60 earns its M badges thanks to two electric motors at either axle, which offer up a combined output of 611bhp.
Peak torque meanwhile, stands at 1015Nm when the car is set to Sport mode. A total of 1100Nm is available when launch control is activated in the SUV.
These figures mean the technology flagship will reach 100km/h from a standstill in just 3.8 seconds.
Calm things down a little and the iX M60 will return you a claimed energy consumption rate of 4.6km/kWh. This and the fact that it carries a 105.2kWh battery means you can expect to achieve up to 566km with a full charge.
An electronically limited top speed of 250km/h also means the iX M60 is the fastest pure electric model in the BMW Group.
An aluminium spaceframe chassis supported by a carbon cage works alongside carbon fibre reinforced plastic in the roof, side and rear sections to keep the weight to a minimum.
Supporting that body is a dual-axle air suspension setup with M-specific tuning and automatic level control, which promises to deliver all the agility and precision expected of a BMW M driving experience.
BRONZE AND TITANIUM HIGHLIGHTS
On the outside, the BMW iX M60 is actually rather discreet for an M-badged car. You’ll have to look out for the M logos, finished in a Gloss Black/Titanium Bronze combination.
There are also M-badged brake callipers, and blue 22-inch Titanium Bronze design aerodynamic wheels offered as options.
In the cabin, the curved display of the regular iX continues to feature in the BMW iX M60, sporting the firm’s latest eighth-generation operating system. The hexagonal steering wheel and the anthracite-coloured roof liner are also present.
Standard features for the iX M60 here include the BMW Live Cockpit Professional and BMW Natural Interaction. There’s also the Bowers and Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound System to look forward to.
The car will also get the firm’s Active Seat Ventilation for driver and front passenger and the Heat Comfort Package.
