The BMW iX M60, the latest performance of the German car manufacturer electric car and the second EV will be released under the racing brand M. Coming off the summer of 2022, the iX M60 will have two electric motors, 610 braking horsepower, and up to 280 miles per charge.
There are other interesting details to note, including 811 lb-ft of close-up speed at start-up and 3.6 seconds of speed from 0 to 60 miles per hour. According to BMW, the MS Special electric drive tray will continue to power up to high load levels, “so when it is properly equipped, the maximum electronic speed of up to 155 miles per hour will remain constant.
BMW M, which was conceived in May 1972, to support the company’s racing efforts. Now, as the brand celebrates its 50th anniversary, it is merging with BMW — possibly later — to convert from incandescent engines to electric vehicles.
BMW’s iX M60 large 111.5 kWh battery, usable 106.3 kWh The comparatively powerful Tesla long-distance model S 100 kWh battery, while the Mercedes-Benz core EQS sedan has a capacity of 107.8 kWh at 350 miles.
When it comes to charging, BMW says it will take 97 minutes to increase from 10 percent to 80 percent with a 25-amp system with 50 kW. When plugged into a 100-kW 250-amp charger, that time is reduced to 49 minutes. And plugged into a 250kW DC fast charger, the iX M60 takes just 35 minutes to charge 10 to 80 percent.
The company expects to introduce a completely new software package and advanced driver assistance features with the iX M60. Some of the features of the vehicle’s new computer platform include autonomous steering and parking features.
In particular, BMW says it will not use rare earth materials to operate the iX M60. Instead, the motors operate on the principle of “current synchronous machine,” according to BMW.
Most electric motors are powered by permanent magnets and are sometimes as small as a piece of cardboard. The magnets allow the motors to convert electricity into motion, thereby moving the vehicle. These rare earth magnets, mostly made of NdFeB, are mined almost entirely in China.
BMW says it is possible to achieve higher energy efficiency, especially the rear engine, using the same principles of the same machine as it currently does, which will allow the automaker to achieve the level of performance expected from its M-series vehicles.
BMW will release new EVs in the next few years, with a target of 50 percent sales by 2030. Later this year, the company will release an i4 electric sedan up to 300 miles away for $ 55,400 for a low-spec model. It is also developing an electric version of the 5 Series and 7 Series sedans as well as the entry level X1 SUV.
That means that almost all of Germany’s luxury cars will soon have all kinds of electric cars. The BMW’s most popular car in the US has been tested on a fully electric 3 Series camera.
Still, there were some twists and turns. The best-selling X3 SUV full-size version iX3 is not available in the US alone in Europe and China. And the small i3 electric hatchback was discontinued last year after a low sale.
