BMW XM concept SUV unveiled with 750 BHP

Once the XM enters production, it will become the most powerful BMW M model in the brand's history.

BMW has unveiled its all-new XM concept SUV. The new BMW XM Concept is the brand's first standalone M SUV and is also the first product not to be based on any existing model. BMW says that the production version of the XM concept will be unveiled by end-2022.

The XM concept will be exclusively offered with a plug-in hybrid powertrain. This comes in the form of a V8 engine combined with an electric motor, capable of producing 750 BHP and 1000 Nm. The SUV is also said to have an all-electric range of 80 km. Once the XM enters production, it will become the most powerful BMW M model in the brand's history.

The BMW XM concept also previews the brand's new design direction for its future high-performance models. The XM concept features a large pair of kidney grilles up front, flanked on either side by the sleek LED lighting. The sides are characterised by the squared wheel arches housing the 23-inch alloys, while the rear features sleek LED taillights and the quad exhaust tips on either side of the diffuser.

On the inside, the BMW XM Concept has premium upholstery all around, along with plenty of carbon-fibre elements. There are also two large screens, one for the instrument cluster and the other being the touchscreen infotainment unit running on BMW's latest iDrive technology.
