BMW recently unveiled its new, sporty XM SUV, but there are already rumors of a 735 HP plug-in hybrid version of the vehicle arriving the next year to compete with vehicles like the EQS SUV and GMC Hummer EV.
It will be known as the XM Label Red, according to writes Viknesh Vijayentharian of MotorAuthority.
Additionally, BMW has already stated that their hybrid V-8 would produce 735 horsepower and 735 pound-feet of torque.
Only a few teaser photographs of the new vehicle have been released, depicting what appears to be a blacked-out BMW XM with red trim in place of the XM’s grille and window surrounds, which are bronze in color. In addition, that distinctive finish on the XM looks truly amazing in person. Here is a fast photo I took two weeks ago in Miami.
In Miami, BMW XM The starting price of the Label Red BMW is anticipated to be $185,995, which is an increase of roughly $30,000 over the $159,995 starting price of the “regular” XM. It is anticipated that customers will start receiving that vehicle next fall, about the time the Red version makes its public debut. It has 644 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque.
The 25.7 kWh battery pack that powers the “regular” XM (though, honestly, calling that car “standard” is unfair – it’s spectacular) is anticipated to remain in the hot version of the XM, providing roughly 30 miles of electric range.
With the same electronically regulated top speed as the M Driver’s Package, the radically designed PHEV should achieve 0-60 sprints in under 4.0 seconds. The XM will start being produced, including the Label Red, in BMW’s current plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina, starting next summer.
