The extreme power and precise control of the electric all-wheel drive, together with the highly responsive actuator-based wheel slip limitation and a suspension technology that includes, among other things, a specifically M tuned dual-axle air suspension with automatic level control, ensure hallmark BMW M driving experience, agility and precision.
The BMW iX M60 accelerates from 0-62mph in only 3.8 seconds* and this passionate power delivery of M- specific electric drive continues steadily into high load ranges, so acceleration remains constant up to the electronically limited maximum speed of 155mph*.
The BMW iX has been conceived as the ideal all-electric SAV with high-performance characteristics. From its design, through to its body structure and suspension set-up, everything has been geared towards achieving both superior ride comfort and handling characteristics.
The aluminium spaceframe and the carbon cage with carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) in the roof, side and rear sections combine an intelligent mix of materials that increase rigidity and optimise weight. The use of CFRP to reduce weight has a long tradition at BMW M GmbH, going back to the BMW M3 CSL, which was introduced in 2003.
The BMW iX M60’s aerodynamic properties have been optimised to achieve a drag coefficient (Cd value) of 0.27*, which benefits the vehicle’s performance, efficiency and range. The high-voltage battery is located deep down in the underbody, lowering the vehicle’s centre of gravity. This ensures a balanced axle load distribution, resulting in outstanding cornering dynamics and handling that can be precisely controlled at all times.
The BMW iX already offers drivers a high level of standard equipment, but iX M60 customers benefit from even more. In addition to the standard offering on the iX xDrive 50, iX M60 customers receive 22” Air Performance Alloy wheels, Soft Close Doors, Laserlights and Parking Assistant Professional including the all-new Interior camera.
Inside the vehicle, customers also benefit from Interior Design in Suite Natural Leather Upholstery, Comfort Access, Heat Comfort Package, Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound System, Ventilated Front Seats, Sun Protection Glass, Four-zone Air Conditioning and Front Electric and Massage Seats.
The latest generation iDrive display and control system expands the interaction between driver and vehicle; based on the new BMW Operating System 8 it has been designed with a clear focus on both the touch function of the new BMW Curved Display and voice communication with the extensively enhanced BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant.
Navigation with the cloud-based BMW Maps system and Augmented Reality Video on the Control Display ensures fast and precise route planning as well as outstanding traffic guidance.
The powerful proportions of a modern SAV, reduced surface design and precise details characterise the clear exterior look and give the BMW iX M60 its distinctive presence. The brake callipers of the sports brake system painted in blue and featuring an M logo, the BMW Individual Titanium Bronze Exterior Line and M logos in the new High Gloss Black/Titanium Bronze finish on the front side panels and the rear of the vehicle provide clear indications of the high performance character of the BMW iX M60. 22-inch aerodynamic wheels featuring Titanium Bronze design are also offered via the option programme exclusively on this variant.
The BMW iX M60 is priced from £111,905 OTR and due for UK launch in summer 2022.
