CARSCOOPS reports about the publication of the first photos of the production version of the BMW XM model – these are the so-called “patent images”, which already clearly show the general shape of the body and all external details. This is exactly how this crossover will look in general, only with the correction of the color scheme and the presence of light alloy wheels.

So, what has changed about the BMW XM concept car? First of all, from now on there are real headlights combined with the characteristic “nostrils” of the radiator grille. Daytime running lights are located above them, and small ventilation holes are located below. Secondly, real stationary handles are installed on the doors, while the shape of the “sill” or side moldings has not changed significantly. The third change concerns the rear part of the BMW XM model: the lights have acquired a more traditional elongated horizontal shape, without vertical turns downwards, and the upper corners of the rear glass have lost the BMW logos.

We will remind you that BMW XM should become the flagship of BMW M cars and will not have ordinary versions from BMW – only the maximum M. The crossover will receive a gasoline V8 with an addition in the form of an electric motor (Plug-In hybrid), so the total power will reach about 650 “horses”, and the torque is expected at the level of 800 Nm. The production version of the BMW XM model will start as early as 2023.
