Introducing the BMW iX M60
As BMW's flagship EV, the iX M60 trailblazes the way for luxury fully-electric vehicles with the added excitement and heritage of BMW M. A BMW i or BMW M vehicle is special in its own right, yet the iX M60 happens to be part of both highly-desirable BMW sub brands.

Engines and Performance
A BMW M car without an engine? The BMW iX M60 joins the BMW i4 M50 in a new breed of fully-electric M cars. But with a strong and rich heritage of petrol-powered M cars, can the iX M60 live up to the iconic reputation? With 611bhp, the iX M60 certainly houses typical M car power and with 811lb ft of torque, there is no denying the iX M60 has the supercar-taunting facts and figures associated with M models.
Despite the car's silent electric nature, emotional sound is pumped into the cabin via BMW M IconicSounds Electric. This has been created by legendary composer Hans Zimmer and the Creative Director Sound of the BMW Group, Renzo Vitale, which help give the iX M60 its own unique vibe.
With 0 to 62mph happening in just 3.9 seconds, this large and practical SUV or 'SAV' in BMW speak, certainly fits in with the M car family recipe.
Chassis and Handling
Considering this is a large and practical Sports Activity Vehicle, you would be forgiven in thinking that the iX M60 would not be the most agile - but this is an M car, so the uncanny ability of high performance is still apparent in large amounts.
Precise driving dynamics which have long been a trait of M cars are evident in the iX M60. This is thanks to electronic dampers and Adaptive 2-axle air suspension, along with Integral Active Steering. These all ensure the iX M60 keeps neat and tidy when it comes to handling - without sacrificing comfort.
This is especially impressive due to the iX M60's practical size and weight of 2,659kg.
Technology and Drive Modes
A fully-electric M car is quite the statement and the technology BMW have implemented to ensure performance is unmistakably M is incredibly impressive. Delve a little deeper and you will find the iX M60 has more clever technology to complement its unique electric performance.
Connectivity is state-of-the-art and features the new BMW iDrive operating concept comprising of digital services along with smart driver assistance systems, and even 5G as standard. Remote Software Upgrade means your BMW iX M60 will always be up to date, whilst Connected Package Professional includes things like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
