BMW has launched a new flagship M60 version of its iX electric SUV that offers 619PS and a 357-mile range.
The ‘hot’ iX is the brand’s second electric car to get an overhaul from BMW’s M Division, following the debut of the i4 M50.
Prices start at £111,905 on-the-road, some £40,000 more than the entry-level iX eDrive40.
The M60 uses a twin-motor all-wheel-drive powertrain, with a torque output of 1,100Nm, which helps to accelerate the large SUV from 0-62mph in 3.8 seconds. It’s the fastest BMW EV to date, with a top speed of 155mph.
BMW’s M Division has tuned the car’s air suspension to improve agility and added styling changes to set the car apart from other versions.
The iX M60 is fitted with a 111kWh battery, providing a WLTP range of 357 miles and a charging capacity of up to 200kW. A 10-80% charge can be completed in as little as 35 minutes.
Standard equipment for the flagship model includes 22-inch alloy wheels, Soft Close Doors, Laserlights and Parking Assistant Professional with interior camera.
The M60 also benefits from keyless entry, a Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound System, ventilated front seats and four-zone climate control.
The iX M60 will be available from summer 2022.
