The new BMW i5 M60 xDrive is in the final phase of its development – part of this chapter is driver testing under challenging conditions. Making an appearance on the list of locations is the icy test site in Arjeplog, Sweden. Not only does the all-electric powertrain have to prove itself here, but the chassis and control systems of the BMW M GmbH performance model will also receive their final tuning near the Arctic Circle. BMW M engineers Michael Tobias, Functional Design and Integration Powertrain, and Daniel Mögele, Functional Design and Integration Driving Dynamics are part of the development team. We met with them for an interview.
BMW i5 M60 xDrive*: Electric power consumption in kWh/100 km (combined): 21.2-17.9 kWh/100 km (WLTP); CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 0 (WLTP)
