BMW Unveils The First Ever XM, The Everyday SUV For Everyone
The New BMW XM is your SUV from the future for every occasion
The all-new BMW XM is not an SUV. That’s because the German automaker calls it a Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV), and admittedly, the new BMW BMW M GmbH offering is no ordinary SUV In fact, it redefines what an SUV is in every aspect and is so versatile, stylish, powerful and sustainable, we can confidently recommend it to everyone.
When Is It Coming?
The BMW XM is set to land in Malaysia in June 2023 and it features an electrifying twist to the raw, unbridled performance any M vehicle is known for. This is achieved through the seamless connection between the BMW M HYBRID drive system with the model-specific M suspension.
Hans de Visser, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia, said, “We are beyond thrilled to introduce the First-Ever BMW XM to Malaysia. This exclusive Sports Activity Vehicle is the first-ever BMW M GmbH high-performing car to feature an M HYBRID drive system, thus extending the realm of e-mobility within the high-performance car segment in Malaysia.”

It measures 5,110mm in length, 2,005mm in width and 1,755mm in height, with a wheelbase of 3,105mm and has a luggage capacity of 527 litres, which is expandable to 1,820 litres with the seats folded.
The BMW XM is a plug-in hybrid featuring an electric motor and an all-new 4.4-litre M TwinPower Turbo V8 producing a total of 653 hp and 800 Nm of torque.
