BMW unveils the iX M60, an electric performance SUV with over 800 lb-ft of torque
This year's CES in Las Vegas is in full swing, and many traditional automakers have apparently decided to use the event revolving around consumer electronics as a platform to unveil new all-electric models in their ever-growing EV lineups. After newcomers like the Japanese tech giant Sony have already unveiled their latest electric SUV concepts, BMW has now followed suit by presenting its all-electric performance SUV, the iX M60.
The BMW iX M60 is equipped with two electric motors that deliver 610 horsepower as well as 811 lb-ft of torque, which allows the electric SUV to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 155 mph. Therefore the iX M60 is the best-performing electric BMW to date and also the vehicle with the highest torque output in the entire lineup of the Munich-based automaker. Like all M-series cars, the BMW iX M60's air suspension is tuned to provide great handling and enable a dynamic driving experience.
Meanwhile, the huge 1320 pound battery with a capacity of 105 kWh should allow projected ranges of up to 280 miles per charge. The BMW iX M60 supposedly comes with all the hardware that is necessary for autonomous driving, and the integrated 5G module will provide fast cellular connections for this insanely expensive electric performance SUV. The BMW iX M60 will go on sale in June 2022 in the US, while pricing starts at a hefty US$106,095.
