Our Take

Our take

Some cars are just bonkers. This XM is bold new direction for BMW. It's a flagship ultra-luxury car that looks like an off-roader. It has gold accents instead of chrome. It's a plug-in hybrid, but you're assisting a 4.4L twin-turbo V8, which you can hear rumbling from quad exhausts. All combined, it's a staggering 688 horsepower and we're told there's an even more powerful version coming. As you might have guessed, BMW is not aiming for efficiency with this one. It'll give you 30 miles of full EV range, but just 17 mpg once that battery is depleted. But at a starting price of $159,000, we're guessing gas prices aren't a primary concern. Expect the BMW XM to arrive in 2023.

What we love

  • Styling that looks mostly fantastic
  • 30 miles of EV range is decent for a 6k lb vehicle
  • We expect build quality and control interfaces to be excellent

What we don't

  • $159,000! Before options!
  • Clearly not efficient
  • The illuminated kidney grilles are gaudy

EV Range
Why EV Range Is Important

An EV's advertised range is just an estimate. Your mileage may vary, literally! It's important to understand the factors that can affect EV range, so you choose a car that has enough for your lifestyle and habits. Not choosing enough range for your unique needs can prove to be a frustrating and expensive mistake. If you're not sure how range works or how much you need, visit our section on identifying your EV needs.

Peak Charge Rate
Why Charge Rate Is Important

Would you rather charge for 20 minutes, or an hour? That's essentially what charge rate comes down to, how much time you'll spend at the plug. Different EVs are capable of charging at different speeds, so it's important to understand what your car's "Peak" or "Max" Charge Rate is. Charge rate is measured in Kilowatts (kW) and in 2023, the average peak charge rate is about 150kW. The fastest EVs charge at 250kW and above. Plug-In Hybrids will charge much slower. What does this mean for actual charge times? Well there's a little more to it...

MPG in hybrid mode
What is MPGe?

MPGe or Miles Per Gallon Equivalent, is a way to compare the relative efficiency of cars using different types of energy. MPGe says there is 33.7 kWh of energy in a single gallon of gas, so we'll use that equivelency to compare to cars using kWh of energy from gas, batteries, or both.

MPG in hybrid mode
If you see a number for "MPG in hybrid mode" on this vehicle page, that's the average gas mileage one can expect AFTER this vehicle's hybrid battery has been depleted. When the battery is used, a plug-in hybrid will operate more like a "full hybrid". For more on the different types of hybrids, check out this article.

Charge times

Charge times are estimated, and based on charging to 80% capacity. Real-world times may vary significantly based on available amperage and environmental conditions.
