BMW’s most expensive SUV, The BMW XM will be discontinued!

According to “BMW Client”, starting from the production month in July this year, the limited edition BMW XM Label Red model sold in the Chinese market will be discontinued. Currently, there is only one unit unsold in the Chinese market, with a price of 2.8 million RMB. The report points out that the BMW XM with a V8 engine that is about to be discontinued is sold in the Chinese market, while the BMW XM 50e with a straight-six engine will not be affected and will continue to be produced and supplied for sale in the Chinese market. The car is priced at 14.68 million RMB.

Both the BMW XM Label Red limited edition and the BMW XM 50e were launched at the 2023 Chengdu Auto Show. Among them, the BMW XM Label Red is limited to 500 units, with a price of 2.8 million RMB. It is the most expensive SUV model in the current BMW family. The BMW XM Label Red adopts a two-tone design of black and red, and the front face uses the classic “double-kidney” grille design of BMW. The grille is decorated with red trim, and the internal mesh adopts a horizontal striped layout. It is matched with a split headlight group design on both sides, which looks very domineering in the overall visual effect. The side windows of the body are also surrounded by red lines, and the black paint on the body looks very dazzling.

In terms of power, the limited edition BMW XM Label Red is equipped with an upgraded 4.4T V8 turbocharged engine + hybrid system, with a maximum power of 748 horsepower and a maximum torque of 1,000 N·m. It is matched with an 8-speed automatic manual transmission and an xDrive all-wheel drive system.

The price of the BMW XM 50e is 1.468 million yuan. The car’s exterior is dominated by a unique yellow color, forming a sharp contrast with the black high-gloss body details and side trim. The overall sporty attribute is full. The interior is the same as the BMW XM Label Red limited edition, with a dual large screen and an M-sports style steering wheel. In terms of power, it is equipped with a plug-in hybrid system composed of a 3.0T twin-turbocharged straight-six gasoline engine and a high-performance motor. The combined maximum power is 350kW/476 horsepower, and the peak torque is 700 N·m.

It is understood that the BMW XM is independently developed by the BMW M department and is the second independently developed model in the M series and the first M hybrid power drive system model. In September 2022, the innovative BMW XM was globally premiered. On December 15 of the same year, BMW Group announced the official launch of the innovative BMW XM in China, with a suggested retail price of 2.3 million yuan. It mainly forms competitors with Mercedes-Benz GLS AMG, Audi RS Q8, Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT and other models in the auto market. Thereafter, BMW Group also limited the sale of the BMW XM Label Red model.

As a car with a price close to 3 million yuan, the limited edition BMW XM Label Red model is not surprisingly discontinued, after all, models with overly high prices are not suitable for the mass consumer market.

It is reported that starting from the production month in August this year, a special edition of the BMW XM in China of the BMW Group will begin to be put into production, which is positioned as a high-performance model. However, there is still very limited information about the car in the market, and more information needs to be further released by the official to be known. In addition, from the production month in July 2024, the new generation BMW M5 will also be officially put into production.
