Richmond Hill, ON. Green light for the first BMW M automobile designed for purely electric mobility from the outset. The BMW Group presents the third, even more powerful model variant of its new technology flagship: the BMW iX M60. With an estimated peak output of 610 hp and peak torque of 811 lb-ft and an M specific suspension set-up, it adds an outstanding performance experience to the world of emission-free mobility.
The BMW iX M60 combines a vehicle concept consistently geared towards sustainability with the design of a modern Sports Activity Vehicle and thrilling dynamic driving characteristics. In this way it embodies the best of the three worlds of BMW iX, the BMW X models and BMW M GmbH. With its technological highlights, which also include the areas of automated driving, operation and connectivity, the new BMW iX M60 represents a new understanding of advanced luxury, high performance and premium character.
BMW Group Canada is also proud to announce the introduction of the iX xDrive40. The xDrive40 will further expand BMW’s offering of electrified products in Canada and provide increased choice and flexibility for Canadian customers.
BMW Group Canada now confirms the new xDrive40 will join the iX’s core version, the xDrive50, and the new M60 in Canadian showrooms. The iX xDrive40 comes equipped with a 71kWh, high-voltage battery and dual electric motors that produce 322 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque. It will go 0-100 km/h in 6.1 seconds, with a top speed of 200 km/h. An estimated EPA range is soon to be announced.
The xDrive40 comes with all-wheel drive as standard and is still capable of the same impressive charging times as other versions of the iX, charging from 10-80% in as little as 31 minutes. The xDrive40 will go on sale in Canada with a base price of $79,990.
The BMW iX M60 accelerates from a standstill to 100 km/h in only 3.8 seconds. The vehement power delivery of its M specific electric drive continues steadily into high load ranges, so that the increase in speed also remains almost constant up to the electronically limited maximum speed of 250 km/h. The BMW iX M60 has an estimated range of up to 450 kilometres.
The BMW iX M60 is manufactured together with the other model variants of the all-electric Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) at the BMW Group Plant Dingolfing. The Canadian market launch of the iX M60 will begin in June 2022 with a starting price of $121,750. Sales of both versions are set to begin in June 2022.
