BMW unveiled the IX M60 range-topping version of its flagship EV during its CES 2022 keynote. The company claims that the new BMW iX M60 is “the best of the three worlds of i, X and M”. It says that the EV comes with the most powerful powertrain variant of the all-electric SUV, which makes 610 bhp, 455kW and 1,015Nm of torque in Sport mode.

The company has claimed that this electric car has the ability to accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in just 3.8 seconds. It also claims that the car can deliver power continuously till it reaches a top speed of 250 kmph, which is 50 kmph faster than the iX xDrive50.

The BMW iX M60 comes with a dual-motor AWD powertrain with fifth-generation eDrive technology that includes a high-voltage battery that stores 111.5 kWh of energy. Both the electric motors work on the principle of current-energized synchronous machine. The rear motor generates 360 kW of power with a high output density of 2.59 kW/kg.

With the help of DC charging, the company claims that the battery can be charged from 10 percent to 80 percent within 35 minutes, with DC fast-charging adding 150 km every 10 minutes.

Other features of the IX M60 include specially tuned dual-axle suspension with automatic level control, carbon fiber reinforced plastic components in the roof, side and rear sections, a sports brake system and other visual tweaks.
