BMW XM Arrives : One Mans Meat Is Another Mans Fish

Meet the most talked about BMW, the XM with its questionable design language. 

As its 50th anniversary celebrations continue, BMW Malaysia unleashes high performance in a form never experienced before.

Innovative drive system technology, a unique vehicle concept, a door opened into a whole new market segment and the ambition to attract new groups of customers – the first-ever BMW XM wraps all these elements in a confidently dramatic exterior design that exudes power and emotion and an interior that is at once intensely driver-focused, boldly modern, and indulgently sybaritic.

Powertrain – The first plug-in hybrid drive system from BMW M

The all-new BMW XM is fitted with a newly developed plug-in hybrid drivetrain. The M HYBRID system in the BMW XM consists of a new 483-hp V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology and a 194-hp electric motor integrated into the eight-speed M Steptronic transmission.

Together, they generate a maximum system output of 644 hp at 5,400 RPM and 590 ft-lbs of torque between 1,600 and 5,000 RPM.

Power is channeled to the road via the M xDrive all-wheel-drive system. The combination of an electric motor and eight-cylinder engine produces immense, instantaneously available power sustained throughout the rev range.

The M HYBRID system also enables purely electric driving with an anticipated range of 30 miles (estimated range of up to 30 miles according to preliminary BMW AG tests based on the EPA’s test procedure standards).

The BMW XM shares its drive concept of an eight-cylinder combustion engine supported by an electric motor with the newly developed endurance racing car from BMW M Motorsport.

The BMW M Hybrid V8 will go racing in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship in North America in 2023 at venues including Daytona. The following season, it will power BMW M Motorsport’s return to the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) and the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The retail pricing (on the road, without insurance) for the First-Ever BMW XM with Extended 5-Year Warranty & Service Package is as follows ……

For Duty Free Langkawi it is RM820,000.00 and for duty paid Peninsular Malaysia it is RM1,400,000.00 which is some RM1 million less than the ultra impressive all new Range Rover that retails for just below RM2.5 Million.
