The BMW M Performance brand is getting ready for the world of the future, which will be filled with electric cars with a neutral impact on the environment. After last fall's release of the i4 M50, BMW's first electric car with the M emblem, the company announced the launch of its first electric SUV called the iX M60. Even though it's almost impossible to visually distinguish the M60 from the standard iX, the new high-performance variant gets a little extra power and lots of new specs.
As the 516-horsepower iX xDrive50, the M60 is an all-wheel-drive vehicle with an electric motor on each axle. When Sport mode is activated, these engines now produce 610 hp, and with Launch Control on, the torque is 1,100 Nm. These powerful figures are capable of accelerating to 100 km/h in just 3.6 seconds.
In the case of the iX M60 adaptive air suspension comes as standard in combination with double-wishbone suspension at the front and rear. The air suspension is equipped with electronically controlled shock absorbers and can adjust the height depending on speed and each wheel pressure. Height can also be controlled via a button on the center console, and ride modes change the damper display to adjust handling and ride quality.
The design changes are minor. Behind the unique 22-inch wheels we can see blue brake calipers with the M logo. Many items that were not available in standard models, are included as a base on the iX M60, such as BMW's speech and gesture control system, Bowers & Wilkins sound system, heated wheel, and seats. The iX M60 will cost $106,000. The car will go on sale in the United States this June.
