Is the BMW XM fully electric?
No, BMW XM is not a fully electric SUV. it’s a hybrid vehicle. which means it uses an electric motor and a petrol engine to propel the car. although you can drive this SUV completely on electricity over a few kilometres 80-88 km.Read More

Is BMW XM petrol or diesel?
Have a look at the exterior features of the BMW XM Hybrid 2023
The first thing is this XM SUV is completely designed by the BMW M division and the exterior and interior design is different from the other BMW cars. when i saw this SUV for the first time I was impressed by the design of this car. I mean it has lots of sharp cuts and creases all over the exterior.Read More
It also has some design elements that you dont find on any other BMW SUV like it has gold strips that start from the front fender and run through the doors and reach the rear quarter window.
On the other hand, it has a coupe-like design that makes it look more sportier. although it’s not sportier than the other SUVs like the Lamborghini Urus, Aston Martin DBX etc it looks like one. on the other hand, the Company has added a new Double kidney grill surrounded by a gold accent and LED illumination that gives it a unique appearance and styling and I really like it.
There are certain things this SUV has you can see them below along with the latest images of the 2023 BMW XM.
So let’s start from the front view and the eye-catching thing here is the double kidney Grille is highlighted with the LED lights and gold accent. as you can see in the images. and lights around the grille remain active when the vehicle is stationary and moving. Read More
There is the M badge on the left side of the grille that shows it’s designed by the BMW M division. when you look at the front the bonnet looks muscular and sporty thanks to its sharp bonnet line which matches the double kidney grille and makes it look bigger.
and the very front part of the bonnet has the BMW logo. another unique thing is its DRLs yes, hexagonal-shaped DRLS that are sharp and looks look smaller i haven’t seen that kind of light before. and below the DRLS it has bumper-mounted LED adaptive headlights with high beam assistance.
These headlights reduce the glare on on-coming traffic thus maximizing visibility during night drive. Besides this BMW XM Hybrid 2023 has an aerodynamic bumper that has passing vents below the headlights to reduce drag and make the car more aerodynamic.
and this SUV has enough open area for air ventilation which helps to keep the engine cool during the drive. and the rest of the things you can see in the images.
The BMW XM Hybrid 2023 has a coupe-like design, which completely transforms the appearance of the SUV from the side. The rear wheel arches are angular and the rear quarter panels are broad, giving the car a wide look from both the side and the rear. Read More
Another highlight here is the character line of this SUV is highlighted by the gold strips which start from the front fender and reach up to the rear quarter window. this design element I have seen on any SUV in the market. and the very front part of the gold strip near the front fender M badging is shown to give it a distinctive look.
Another highlight here is the door handles they have a black piano appearance and when you look closer at them you will see that have some triangular shapes cut over them. I am sure just like me you also haven’t seen them before.
Now let’s come to the wheel sadly here in India we have no choice but to choose alloy only one design. but international models don’t get three types of alloy to choose from. but I am ok with that. so the alloy 23″ M star spoke style 923 M Bicolour Night Gold accent comes with the car in India.
and international models get three choices which are 21″ M double spoke 918 M, 22″ M double spoke style 922 M Bicolour with sport tyres & 23″ M star spoke style 923 M Bicolour Night Gold accent.
Moving on to the ORVM you will get electrically adjustable and foldable ORVMs that have anti dazzle function built in. It actually lowers the light reflection which occurs due to the vehicle moving behind the car. it helps the driver to drive the car safely during night drive. and the design of the Orvm is aerodynamic just like other M models of BMW.
Moving on the front right fender you will see a charging slot is provided and a charging cable is provided with the car. which is placed in the boot inside the leather bag. and the rest of the things you can see in the images we have shown.
The rear portion of the car here is the exciting one because BMW XM Hybrid 2023 doesnt get any BMW badge on the tailgate. instead of this two laser BMW logo is provided on the top of the rear glass one on the left and one on the right just like BMW M1.Read More
Tailight here are fully LED and its 3D design makes it look cool. and taillights are two-piece construction means half a portion of the light will rise with the tailgate. and some rear quarter panels are also covered by the taillights.
Another eye-catching design element here is the quad exhaust we have seen dual exhaust remains arranged in the horizontal position. but here BMW arranged them vertically. on the other hand, when you release the tailgate the floor of the tailgate is completely flat.
and is also unusual because the boot floor remains lower from the bumper so that luggage dont come out easily.
HOW do Lock & unlock the BMW XM doors?
BMW has provided a key fob as you can see in the images. this key fob has a tiny BMW logo when you press it it locks the car and to unlock there is a button on the side of the key fob with an icon to press it to unlock.Read More
On the other hand, if you press the tiny BMW log three times it will start the vehicle. BMW XM hybrid 2023 comes with a soft closing door feature so just close the door gently and magnets will close the door softly.
What colours do we get with the BMW XM hybrid 2023?

What is it like to drive a BMW XM Hybrid 2023?
So let’s understand the BMW XM hybrid 2023 technology. this newly developed SUV is powered by an internal combustion V8 engine and a permanent magnet synchronous motor. Read More
Its V8 engine is 4395cc, Liquid cooled DOHC with a total of 32 valves four valves per cylinder. it develops 360 kW (489 hp) between 5,400-7,200 rpm and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) between 1,600-5,000 rpm. this engine is also equipped with two turbocharger which is nicely placed between two cylinder banks.
The BMW XM’s new engine is a classically high-revving V8 with cutting-edge M TwinPower Turbo technology. The 650 Nm peak torque generated by the combustion engine alone is on tap between 1,600 and 5,000 rpm, and the V8 produces its maximum output of 360 kW (489 hp) at 5,400 rpm.
Besides this, adding more to this is an electric motor which is placed between the gearbox and the engine. The permanently excited synchronous motor is integrated into the eight-speed M Steptronic transmission and, responds to just slight movements of the accelerator with emphatic power delivery. This takes the agility and dynamism of a high-performance car from BMW M to a new level.
This electric motor alone develops 197 hp (145kw) and 280 nm (206 lb-ft) of torque. This motor alone can power this SUV from 82-88 km on battery alone. and the combined power output of the drive train is 653 horsepower and 800 nm of torque.
Besides this BMW is a four-wheel drive 1SUV it has a BMW M differential rear and front via an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission. Power is channelled to the road via the all-wheel-drive system M xDrive.
This BMW has three driving modes Hybrid, comfortable and electric.
In the hybrid mode, the BMW XM hybrid 2023 uses internal combustion and electric power when necessary. In this mode, you can use full engine power.
The electric motor is used fully to improve the efficiency of the BMW XM hybrid 2023. When the battery is almost empty, the generator provides extra power to charge it. This allows the driver to frequently choose electric driving. In Sport and Sport Plus modes, the combustion engine is always running.
The BMW XM solely relies on the electric drive system for power. In eCONTROL mode, you have the choice to either maintain the charge of the high-voltage battery during a trip or increase it through energy recuperation.
Now the BMW XM feels smooth during drive. it takes 4.3sec to reach 0-100 km/h. this car has a four-wheel drive system so it performs on the highway really well. I dont think it’s an off-road vehicle because it has low front and rear overhangs and the ground clearance of the BMW XM is 220 so it can go over bad roads easily but dont drive it excessively bad roads.
On the other hand, suspension is on the stiffer side so you do feel even a small rough road patch. company has kept the suspension stiff to keep the body roll minimum and improve the sporty handling. As this SUV is large in size please dont expect sharp handling from it.
What is the Mileage of the BMW XM Hybrid 2023?

Honest Opinion about the BMW XM Hybrid 2023
See there are a couple of performance SUV in the market which is more powerful than the BMW XM. like Lamborghini URUS which has 657 hp, 0-100 3.5 sec and 305 km/h top speed. other than we gave Aston Martin DBX.Read More

But I think if you are more focused on the design and especially mileage then this BMW XM is for you yes performance-wise it still requires improvement. but it has incredible mileage that I personally like it.
Is BMW XM 7 seater?
No BMW XM is a 6-seater SUV and instead of the third row, it has large boot space to carry luggage. and if you want 7-seater BMW then X7 is good for you.
How BMW XM mileage is high?
It’s because due to intelligent hybrid engines. you can drive a BMW XM hybrid 2023 up to 80 km on a completely electric motor. and by adding an electric motor it utilizes battery power for short distances the engine doesnt use fuel that’s why it has 61.9 kmpl mileage. so battery and electric motors are responsible for the high mileage.
Does BMW XM have a sunroof?
No, it doesnt have a sunroof instead of it you will get an illuminated headliner of prismatic shapes that give you a kind of special feeling when you sit on it. and also you can change the colours of the roof.
