New BMW XM Label Red

More efficient, more exclusive, more extravagant: Shortly after the launch of the new BMW XM Label Rouge, BMW M GmbH unveils the flagship version of its first electrified high-performance car. The BMW XM Label Red combines the M HYBRID system with increased power and bespoke design elements that highlight the car’s exceptional performance. Thanks to a combination of a V8 combustion engine generating up to 585 hp and an electric motor integrated into the eight-speed M Steptronic gearbox developing up to 197 hp (145 kW), the BMW XM Label Red offers total power of 748 hp, making it the most powerful BMW M model ever. It also leads the power rankings in the Sports Activity Vehicle and Sports Activity Coupé segments.

The new BMW XM Label Red is aimed at a global customer base seeking an extroverted lifestyle and a passion for ultimate performance, going beyond traditional conventions. Production will begin in August 2023 at the BMW Group plant in Spartanburg, USA. During this period, an exclusive edition limited to 500 examples of the top model will be produced, with an exclusive BMW Individual Frozen Carbonschwarz metallic body color.

The world premiere of the new BMW XM Label Red will take place at the international motor show Auto Shanghai in April 2023. China, the USA and the Middle East are among the most important sales regions for the BMW Label Red.

M HYBRID with high-level and precisely evaluated performance.

The M HYBRID system in the new BMW XM Label Red is a prime example of the intoxicating effect of electrification on high-performance models from BMW M GmbH. The precise interaction between the electric motor and the V8 engine ensures instant power that builds up and continues unabated in the highest rev ranges. This hybridization corresponds to the drive concept of the new BMW M Hybrid V8 endurance racing car, which enjoyed resounding success at the Daytona 24 Hour race in the North American IMSA series this year and is preparing for to participate in events such as the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2024.

With system power increased to 748 hp, the new top-of-the-range model surpasses the BMW XM produced since December 2022 by 95 hp. The system torque has increased by 200 Nm and now peaks at 1,000 Nm. by the M xDrive all-wheel drive system. Combined with a model-specific composition of chassis technology and fast, precise control of the powertrain and chassis, this system creates a unique performance experience, with dynamism and agility on a whole new level.

V8 engine with cutting-edge M TwinPower Turbo technology and classic high-revving character.

The M HYBRID system in the BMW XM Label Red combines the future benefits of electrification with the traditional qualities of a high-revving eight-cylinder combustion engine, equipped with M TwinPower Turbo technology. The latest generation of the V8 is distinguished by extremely rapid power delivery, increased efficiency and minimized emissions. In addition to a transverse exhaust manifold, it features a reinforced crankshaft, turbocharging with electrically controlled wastegate, improved oil supply and optimized oil separation.

In the BMW XM Label Red, the V8 contributes even more to the system’s power generated in tandem with the electric motor. It develops a maximum power of 585 hp at 5,600 rpm. Maximum torque is 750 Nm, an increase of 100 Nm compared to the BMW XM engine version, and is available over an extremely wide rev range from 1,800 to 5,400 rpm.

The BMW XM Label Red sports exhaust system, equipped with two electronically controlled and continuously adjustable flaps, accompanies the engine power in an emotionally rich way, with a liveliness and energy not normally associated an eight-cylinder. The sound of the engine is therefore very characteristic, as are the two pairs of double exhaust outlets, whose individual pipes are arranged one above the other.

Instant power: electric motor with innovative pre-adjustment stage.

Just like the V8 engine, the electric motor of the M HYBRID system uses innovative technology to provide a significant increase in traction power. The motor is integrated into the eight-speed M gearbox with its power electronics and, as is now the case with electric motors, it reacts to the slightest movements of the accelerator providing instant power.

The electric motor contributes to the maximum power of the BMW engine up to an effective maximum of 450 Nm at the transmission input for the engine. In this way, the compact motor is able to provide the type of torque increase that could normally only be achieved by using a much larger and heavier unit.

The improved power rise resulting from the pre-tuning stage between the electric motor rotor and the transmission input shaft can be clearly felt, both when accelerating off the line than during rapid acceleration. Combined with the V8 engine’s optimized power and high-revving character, the result is incredible performance. The BMW XM Label Red only needs 3.8 seconds to go from 0 to 100 km/h. Its maximum speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h, but it reaches 290 km/h on cars equipped with the optional M Experience pack.

The electric motor not only provides a boost effect during acceleration, it also plays a supporting role at constant load, helping to increase the efficiency of the combustion engine. The BMW CO2 emissions of 35-39 grams per kilometer.

Powerful high-voltage battery, BMW IconicSounds Electric, combined charging unit and predictive heat management.

The engine of the BMW XM Label Red draws its energy from a high-voltage lithium-ion battery integrated into the underbody, based on fifth-generation BMW eDrive technology. This battery stands out for its high energy density at cell and battery pack level, providing a constant flow of power over a wide temperature range and even under heavy loads induced by a particularly sporty driving style. Its usable energy capacity is 25.7 kWh. Combined with the excellent efficiency of the electric motor and the intelligent energy management system, it allows the BMW XM Label Red to offer a range in electric mode of 75 to 83 kilometers depending on the WLTP cycle.

With this range, the BMW The maximum speed achievable in pure electric mode is 140 km/h. The power delivered by the electric motor is also accompanied by its own soundtrack, in the form of the BMW IconicSounds Electric developed as part of a collaboration between BMW Group and film music composer Hans Zimmer.

The combined charging unit of the M HYBRID system enables AC charging with a maximum power of 7.4 kW. This means that the high-voltage battery can be recharged from zero to 100% in 4 hours and 15 minutes. Predictive heat management reduces charging times by sensibly warming or cooling the battery. The BMW Flexible Charger, for use with domestic or industrial sockets, and the charging cable for public or private terminals are supplied as standard. This mode 3 (T2 – T2) cable, intended for charging at public or private charging stations, can be stored in an elegant and exclusive weekend-style bag and secured in the trunk using a carabiner-strap combination.

Supreme traction, captivating performance: M xDrive and M Sport differential.

The M xDrive all-wheel drive system of the BMW XM Label Red distributes the power generated by the combustion engine and electric motor between all four wheels precisely, quickly and as needed at all times. The system’s layout is rear-biased, which enhances the car’s agility and is particularly pronounced in 4WD Sport mode. When the DSC (Dynamic Stability Control) system is completely deactivated, the 4WD Sand mode, optimized for traction and designed specifically for driving on dunes and similar surfaces, can be activated via the M Setup menu.

The M xDrive system is complemented by an electronically controlled differential lock on the rear axle, which further improves traction, agility and directional stability. The M Sport differential allows the drive torque to be distributed between the left and right rear wheels as needed and completely variably, thereby improving driving dynamics.

Chassis adjustment depending on the model, integrated management of transverse dynamics.

The new BMW XM Label Rouge is an impressive vehicle that embodies the power and performance of sports cars.
