As BMW confirmed price and specs for the XM Red Label, BMW M on Instagram also introduced a new six-cylinder XM model called the XM 50e.
Unfortunately, a BMW Australia spokesperson has confirmed they have no plans to bring the model down under: “We have no plans to introduce that variant at this stage”
Let’s continue having a quick look at which this model adds to the range though:
The 50e will be using a BMW M Hybrid powertrain underpinned by a M TwinPower Turbo Inline-6-cylinder petrol engine. The combined output is 350kW and a 0 to 100km/h of 5.1 seconds.
This means the model range power and torque figures range from 350kW/700Nm with the 50e, 480kW/800Nm with the XM, and 550kW/1000Nm with the XM Red Label.
The transmission BMW M have chosen is a 8-speed M Steptronic with Drivelogic and hybrid module. Also present is Adaptive M suspension Professional, and the M Sport Differential working with M xDrive.
Even as an entry level model, it brings the hallmark XM features such as the illuminated M kidney, sculptural headliner with 100 LEDs for illumination providing an ambient light from the roof into the cabin. Finally for the rear passengers, the M Lounge which is a one-piece seating area.
