The German company BMW unveiled the M60 version of the iX electric crossover at CES 2022 as promised. This version is the first electric crossover decorated with the M mark and has very good technical specifications.
We go straight to the powertrain, where the iX M60 is a strong point. This newly arrived Bavarian uses a twin-engine engine with a total power of 532 hp and 1015 Nm of torque. However, if the sport mode and launch control are activated, the propulsion output will increase to 610 horsepower and 1100 Nm of torque for a moment.
Relying on this powerful propulsion, the Bahamas iX M60 is capable of accelerating to 60 mph (96 km / h) in just 3.6 seconds. Like most of the company’s products, its top speed is limited to 155 mph or 250 km / h.
In order for this crossover to have proper handling, it is equipped with an adaptive air suspension system as standard, and its shock absorbers are also electronically controlled. This standard electric crossover has M performance brakes with an attractive blue M logo.
The Bahamas iX M60 is powered by a relatively large 111.5 kWh battery. But despite the high volume of the battery, this car can cover up to 280 miles or 450 km on a single charge according to the EPA standard.
Not to mention the xDrive50 version of this crossover with the same battery travels 300 miles or 483 kilometers. On the plus side, the iX M60 supports 250kW of high-speed charging and can charge up to 80% of its battery capacity in just 36 minutes. In terms of design, the iX M60 differs slightly from the xDrive50, the most important of which are the bronze titanium trim and the M logo on the rear.
Buyers of this version can order the 22-inch titanium bronze rims to make their car more integrated and slightly increase the aerodynamics. This sporty electric crossover will be available in 7 different colors.
Like the exterior, the differences between the M60 and the standard iX are limited inside the cabin. This version also has a 12.3-inch display behind the steering wheel. Infotainment system management is also done through the 14.9-inch central display.
As expected, the quality of materials used in the cabin of this version is very high and includes a variety of aluminum and crystal decorations. Buyers of this version can order synthetic leather or natural leather for different parts, including chairs, depending on their needs. Not to mention that the seats can be selected from five different colors.
The Bamuo Sport Crossover is equipped with a host of safety systems. Adaptive cruise control, high beam assistant, 360-degree park camera and park assistant are some of them. It is worth mentioning that this powerful German crossover is equipped with a wireless mobile phone charger, 5G Wi-Fi connection point and Bowers And Wilkins audio system.
But the price and time of supply; The Bahamas iX M60 will be available in the US starting June for $ 106,095. Of course, another $ 995 will be added to this shipping fee. If we want to compare it with the xDrive50 model, we have to say that this version is priced at $ 84,195. It is worth noting that in addition to the M60 version of the crossover iX, Baamu has shown a special version of this car with a changeable body color in Las Vegas. As we have already informed you, the panels of this version are equipped with advanced technology and can completely change the color of the car.
