BMW XM 50e Official Specs Show Less Power Than X5 xDrive50e


BMW quietly launched the XM 50e yesterday by an official video posted by the M division on YouTube and now we lastly have the not-so-juicy technical specs. Serving because the tremendous SUV’s base model, the brand new variant downsizes from a 4.4-liter V8 to a 3.0-liter inline-six. It’s nonetheless a plug-in hybrid, however the mixed output is considerably down in comparison with the S68-powered model.

The brand new XM 50e provides a complete of 475 hp (350 kW) and 700 Nm (515 lb-ft) for a 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) dash in 5.1 seconds. It borrows the M xDrive, M Sport differential, and eight-speed M Steptronic transmission from the common XM and the brand new XM Label Pink. We’re being advised it provides as a lot as 52 miles (84 kilometers) of purely electrical vary within the WLTP cycle and comes with an M emblem with silver edging to set it other than the beefier variants.

With good cause, some will discover the facility and efficiency a bit disappointing because the first devoted M model from the M1 period is much less potent and slower than an X5 xDrive50e. Certainly, the latter provides a complete of 489 hp (360 kW) so 14 additional electrified ponies over the heavier XM 50e whereas the utmost torque is an identical. The plug-in hybrid X5 completes the dash in 4.8 seconds, thus making it three-tenths of a second faster.

Since we’re coping with plug-in hybrids, the electrical vary is related. The brand new-for-2024 X5 xDrive50e trumps the XM 50e by driving as much as 68 miles (110 kilometers) with out sipping any gasoline, that means it will probably go 16 miles (26 kilometers) farther.

Whereas the common XM and the stronger XM Label Pink shall be offered all around the world, that received’t be the case with the XM 50e. BMW isn’t bringing it to the US or Australia, and chances are high different markets won’t get the inline-six by-product. Greater than 50 Particular person paints shall be supplied for the bottom model, however these received’t be out there to order till August.
