The new BMW iX M60's acceleration.

Fully electric and with outstanding performance: this is how convincingly the BMW iX M60 puts its power on the road.

7 January 2022

Gentleman, start your electric engine: the BMW iX M60’s debut marks a milestone in the 50-year history of BMW M. Together with the BMW i4 M50, it embodies the entry of BMW M to the electric performance vehicle segment. And the start of new driving experiences. Especially impressive: the amazing acceleration in just 3.8 seconds** from 0 to 100 km/h. See for yourselves.

BMW iX M60:
CO2 emissions in g/km 0 (WLTP)
Energy consumption combined in kWh/100 km 21.2–19.5 (WLTP)
Electric range in km 501–564 (WLTP)

THE ADVANTAGES OF LAUNCH CONTROL.

The Launch Control function is a prime example of how the drive control and suspension control systems of the BMW iX M60 interact with the highest precision. Optimum traction and perfect straight-line stability are ensured at all times in this way, even on slippery road surfaces. The BMW iX M60 delivers this catapult-like start from a standstill with unwavering aplomb and accelerates as if on rails and without drive slip up to a maximum speed of 250 km/h.

THE BMW iX M60.

The combination of the electric all-wheel drive with actuator-based wheel slip limitation plays a decisive role here. In normal driving situations, the BMW iX M60 is powered solely by the rear wheels to increase efficiency and range. In the event of higher lateral acceleration or wheel slip, the motor acting on the front wheels takes over an optimum share of the drive with regard to driving dynamics and driving stability. Drive torque control of the two motors reacts noticeably faster and with significantly higher control quality than would be possible with a transfer case mounted between the axles.

The thrilling driving experience in the BMW iX M60 is accompanied by an equally emotional soundtrack. It was created in a collaboration between film music composer and Academy Award winner Hans Zimmer and BMW Group Creative Director Sound Renzo Vitale. Even pressing the start/stop button is acknowledged with an inspiring acoustic signal that awakens anticipation of the purely electric driving experience to come. While driving, the BMW M IconicSounds Electric, standard in the BMW iX M60, provide authentic feedback to every movement of the accelerator pedal. The sound of the drive is characterised by a particularly energy-charged sound development.

The sound characteristics are based on the setting selected with the Driving Experience Control Switch. The acoustic difference between Modes Personal and Sport is intensely perceptible. In Sport Mode, the sound spectrum is particularly dominant and powerful. For example, the drive sound specially developed for all-electric BMW M autmobiles turns the dynamic performance of the BMW iX M60 into an even more intense experience.
