New Electric BMW iX M60 to Debut at CES 2022 in Las Vegas

Set to be unveiled at CES 2022 in Las Vegas on 5th January, a few details have already emerged ahead of the new electric BMW iX M60 launch.

With IEA Global EV Outlook 2021 reporting electric car registrations increased by 41 per cent in 2020, it’s no surprise BMW wants to tap into the growing market. Its latest BMW iX M60 is an electric SUV tuned by the luxury car company’s M performance automobile division – the first fully-electric BMW M model in its history.

This means the tried and tested trio of fast, powerful, and aggressive styling meets the convenient shape of an SUV and the sustainability model of an electric vehicle.

The third introduction of the BMW iX range will feature two electric motors together generating more than 600 hp (447 kW). That’s far superior to both the 322 hp xDrive40 and 516 hp xDrive50. It’ll take the iX M60 variant to 0-100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds and up to almost 250km/h according to an Automotive News Europe report. The findings also mention the car will deliver a range of 575 km and can go from 10-80 per cent battery power in just 40 minutes.

The early images of the BMW iX M60 show a style that doesn’t immediately differ from the xDrive50 model. The M model touches appear to be rather subtle. Most notable are the blacked-out alloy wheels which appear larger and come with a set of M Performance Brakes with blue calipers. There’s also a selection of M badges all finished in black and M logos on the front bumpers and a blacked-out M60 badge on the boot.

Aside from presenting the iX M60, the 30-minute Livestream show will display the German car manufacturers’ other modern technology. It will demonstrate at CES a promising colour-changing body paint technology that switches by simply pressing a button to modify a vehicle’s exterior shade. It will also offer a preview of the in-car entertainment of the future – what they call “a cutting-edge in-car movie theatre experience.”
