It’s real and everyone thinks of it as excessive style.
2023 BMW XM user Wilcoblock leaked an Instagram post with photos showing a production model waiting to be shipped at an airport.
Production XMT is similar to the concept that debuted in November. Despite shipping safety we see a huge crossover SUV with huge kidney grille, large intake and a split headlight design. A rising beltline with a reverse piece of gold trim quickly leads to the roof. The XM will be built based on the X5 and X7 platforms, but will only have two rows of seats with plenty of legroom in the back.
The production model surprisingly retains the dual rounded design, a compliment to the original M1, the distinctive carving on the upper corners of the tailgate glass. Slim LED taillights wrapped in flared fenders. The M Division’s trademark quad extraction tips now feature a stacked design.
The leather-lined interior of the XM inside the production appears to be a steering wheel similar to what is found in the M5 with red M1 and M2 mode pedals. A suede headliner is seen.
The powertrain will be a plug-in hybrid setup with a combined output of a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine, 8-speed automatic transmission, electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack 644 hp and 560 lb-ft. Of torque, according to CNET The car. Will follow a more powerful version with about 750 hp and 737 lb-ft, although it will not use the competition name, CNET car‘Report. The battery pack should be about 20 kwh and have an electric driving range of about 30 miles.
XM will make its debut later this year before going into production.
