Following the introduction of the BMW iX back in October, the German automaker unveiled its performance variant of the all-electric SUV at CES 2022 in Las Vegas.

The new 2023 iX M60 will be one of the first high-performance electric vehicles ever to be introduced by BMW, bearing a similar size and form to the gas-powered X6M. Initial performance specs boast 610 horsepower and 811 ft-lbs of torque, achieving 0-60 in 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph. Charging to 80 percent takes just 40 minutes on 120kW fast charger while a regular 11W AC plug will take 10.5 hours to complete.

Aesthetically, the M60 is not much different from the standard iX featuring an aluminum frame, carbon cage, carbon fiber-reinforced accents, and controversial kidney grilles taken from the latest M3 and 4 series models. However, the M60 will offer exclusive blue brake calipers, Titanium Bronze paintwork, blacked-out M badges, and optional 22-inch rims. Inside, M60 drivers can choose from five interior color options accentuated by a Bowers & Wilkins Diamond surround sound system, panoramic “Sky Lounge” LED roof and a BMW Natural Interaction infotainment system.

The iX M60 starts at $106,095 USD and is expected to sell in the U.S. this June.

In other automotive news, the latest Mercedes-Benz EV concept boasts 620-Mile range on one charge.
