As an adjunct to the current X7 model will come the 2023 XM, which arrives in late 2022. Along with unique body sculpting, the XM will be a plug-in hybrid. The powertrain consists of a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V-8 with electric-motor assist. Output is 750 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque, which would make the XM one of the most powerful production BMW models ever. The automaker points out that the XM’s numbers are also greater than those of competing premium utility vehicles, including the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S and the Lamborghini Urus. BMW estimates the XM’s battery will provide a range of about 30 miles. Pricing for the XM will begin well above the $100,000 mark.
