The immense, instantaneously available power sustained throughout the rev range of the BMW XM is resulting in an intoxicating performance experience.

POWERFUL.

The M HYBRID system.

From race track to the road: The BMW XM shares its drive concept of an eight-cylinder combustion engine supported by an electric motor with the newly developed endurance racing car BMW M Hybrid V8 from BMW M Motorsport. The M HYBRID system in the BMW XM consists of a new V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology and an electric motor integrated into the eight-speed M Steptronic transmission. Power is channelled to the road via the all-wheel-drive system M xDrive.

 

The powertrain delivers maximum output of 480 kW (653 hp) – generated by the combination of a combustion engine with up to 360 kW (489 hp) and an electric drive system with up to 145 kW (197 hp). Added to which, the first-ever plug-in hybrid model from BMW M GmbH also enables pure-electric driving over a range of 82 to 88 kilometres (51 - 55 miles) in the WLTP cycle. "You can assume that we will also find the drive in this or a similar form in other automobiles from BMW M GmbH", announces Franciscus van Meel, CEO of BMW M GmbH.

"The BMW XM is the first electrified M automobile in the high-performance segment from BMW M GmbH, and more electrified models will follow the XM. Moreover, we are already working on the first all-electric high-performance model from BMW M GmbH."
Franciscus van Meel, CEO of BMW M GmbH
A look inside the engine compartment of the BMW XM.

The M HYBRID system generates 480 kW (653 hp) of system output and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of system torque.

The V8 engine of the BMW XM.

The extensively updated, 4.4-litre V8 engine stands out with its smile-inducing appetite for revs and relentless power across a wide engine speed band.

NEW V8 ENGINE.

With traditional high-revving concept.

The BMW XM's new engine is a classically high-revving V8 with cutting-edge M TwinPower Turbo technology. The 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of peak torque generated by the combustion engine alone is on tap between 1,600 and 5,000 rpm, and the V8 produces its maximum output of 360 kW (489 hp) at 5,400 rpm.

The front of the BMW XM.

The electric motor contributes up to 145 kW (197 hp) to the maximum system output of 480 kW (653 hp).

INSTANTANEOUS.

Electric motor delivers instantaneous empathic power delivery.

The V8 engine in the BMW XM is supported by an electric motor which is a product of fifth-generation BMW eDrive technology. The permanently excited synchronous motor is integrated into the eight-speed M Steptronic transmission and, in hallmark electric motor style, responds to just slight movements of the accelerator with emphatic power delivery. This takes the agility and dynamism of a high-performance car from BMW M to a new level.

 

The maximum system torque produced by the combination of electric motor and combustion engine is 800 Nm 590 lb-ft (engine with up to 650 Nm (479 lb-ft), electric motor with up to 280 Nm (206 lb-ft)). A pre-gearing stage is used to increase the maximum torque produced by the electric motor to 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) at the transmission input. This innovation enables the electric motor integrated into the transmission housing in a compact, weight-saving design to generate amounts of effective propulsive power that could normally only be achieved using a far larger unit. "Rarely have a concept vehicle and the resulting production vehicle been so close together. Of course, certain things are exaggerated in a show car, but the two vehicles are 90 percent similar", says Franciscus van Meel, CEO of BMW M GmbH.

EMOTIONAL SOUND.

The sports exhaust system of the BMW XM.

Power delivery is accompanied by an energy-charged soundtrack of rare emotional appeal for an eight-cylinder unit. Providing the distinctive acoustics are two electronically controlled and continuously adjustable flaps in the sports exhaust system of the BMW XM. The exclusive character of the sports exhaust sytem is also reflected in the unique visuals created by the two pairs of dual tailpipes, the individual pipes arranged one above the other.

Das Heck des BMW XM mit der vierflutigen Abgasanlage.
The M HYBRID system of the BMW XM.

Its low installation height allows the high-voltage battery supplying energy to the electric motor to be mounted in the underbody of the BMW XM.

INTELLIGENT.

Power electronics and high-voltage battery.

The optimised interplay between the combustion engine and electric motor is controlled in all model variants by the M HYBRID system’s power electronics. For example, intelligent energy management allows the battery’s charge level to be regulated so that the final stretch of a longer journey through a built-up area can be covered using only electric power.

 

The lithium-ion battery stands out with its high energy density at a cell and battery pack level. It provides a constant flow of power across a wide temperature range and even under the heavy loads brought by a particularly sporty driving style. It offers a usable energy content of 25.7 kWh.

  • The models illustrated include optional equipment.

    Official data on power consumption and electric range were determined in accordance with the mandatory measurement procedure and comply with Regulation (EU) 715/2007 valid at the time of type approval. In case of a range, figures in the NEDC take into account differences in the selected wheel and tire size; figures in the WLTP take into account any optional equipment. WLTP values are used for assessing taxes and other vehicle-related charges that are (also) based on CO2 emissions, as well as for the purposes of vehicle-specific subsidies, if applicable. Where applicable, the NEDC values listed were calculated based on the new WLTP measurement procedure and then converted back to the NEDC measurement procedure for comparability reasons. For newly type-tested vehicles since 01.01.2021, the official data no longer exist according to NEDC, but only according to WLTP. For more information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures, see https://www.bmw.com/wltp.

    For further information about the official fuel consumption and the specific CO2 emission of new passenger cars can be taken out of the „handbook of fuel consumption, the CO2 emission and power consumption of new passenger cars“, which is available at all selling points and at https://www.dat.de/co2/.
