It is being suggested that implementing this technology makes sense if introduced in the brand's high-performance iX M60 electric vehicle. However, one has to wait for the event to get started to know all about BMW's plans. The BMW iX M60 is expected to offer the same 111.5-kWh battery pack and dual motors as the 2022 iX xDrive50, though it is being guessed that the former might come with more considerable power.

The BMW iX xDrive50 is capable of generating a power of 516 hp and a massive peak torque of 765 Nm for an electric motor that powers each axle. Its 111.5-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack gives it a capacity of 105.2 kWh. The electric SUV comes with an estimated range of 483 km.
