2023 BMW iX M60 boosts on up to 610 hp and 811 lb-ft

Otherwise, it’s pretty similar to the standard iX

The BMW iX xDrive50 isn’t exactly slow with 516 horsepower on tap. That’s just insufficient for some people, though, so the German brand has actually added the 2023 BMW iX M60 with a maximum result of 610 horse power as well as 811 pound-feet of torque.

The power boost does appear to be the main upgrade for the M60, and also it’s a little more complicated than those heading numbers. That outcome is only available when in Sport Increase Mode and with launch control on. In Sport Boost Mode with launch control off, torque goes down to 749 pound-feet. In typical mode, power dips to 532 horsepower. So, summarizing, minimum output is 532 horse power and 749 pound-feet, and also optimum is 610 horsepower as well as 811 pound-feet. A lot of the power increase originates from a brand-new electric motor unique to the M60, it’s a six-phase motor with double power inverters, and also it alone is rated approximately 483 horse power.

With additional power comes added weight. The M60 is 110 pounds larger than the xDrive50. It’s not a massive increase, which is understandable given that the majority of the SUV is unchanged with the very same size battery pack and also the exact same type of air suspension (dual-wishbone front and also five-link back) as the basic design. The only genuine framework changes are different anti-roll bars as well as larger brake rotors, though BMW hasn’t provided exact specifications on them. The added power does make the M60 much quicker to 60 mph with a time of 3.6 secs, whereas the xDrive50’s time is above 4. Top speed is 155 mph depending on alternatives.

With generally the same battery as the xDrive50, however with more power, more weight as well as basic 21-inch wheels, the M60 not surprisingly will not go as much. Its array is estimated at 280 miles. It does support 195-kW DC quick billing, and BMW estimates it can bill from 10% to 80% in 35 minutes at maximum billing speed.

Otherwise, the M60 is pretty similar to the xDrive50. The outside has the very same layout as the basic version with the Sporting activity look plan. It is readily available with an extra-cost Titanium Bronze Outside plan, as shown in the gallery at top. It includes bronze accents to the grille as well as badging, and also it can be matched with bronze-highlighted 22-inch wheels. The price for this faster iX is $106,095 with location, a significant increase over the xDrive50’s base rate of $84,195.
