BMW will not be at the CES but a livestream will unveil the iX M60 to visitors
This will be the second electric “M” car
A color-changing concept will also be introduced
BMW decided to abstain from attending the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas due to pandemic related concerns, but this doesn’t mean the automaker abandoned the show.
Indeed, the iX M60 and a colour-changing paint technology, which were to be unveiled in Las Vegas, will be shown to the visitors on a livestream.
This livestream will take place from 2 PM ET on January 5th and it should run for about 30 minutes.
The iX M60 will be the second electric vehicle to be sold under the “M” brand of performance cars. In order to back up its name, this version of the iX will be equipped with the biggest battery available on its platform, with 115.5 kWh and the xDrive AWD system.
The two motors will be capable of providing an output of over 600 horsepower and more torque than the 564 lb-ft of the xDrive50, which will result in a 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) time of less than 4.4 seconds.
This performance will come at a cost however, since the range will most likely take a hit due to the more powerful motors and sportier elements. The actual price of the iX M60 will also be higher than the regular iX xDrive50, meaning that it could easily cross US $100,000 when a few options are added.
Also part of the same livestream will be the unveiling of a colour-changing paint technology that could allow drivers to select a different colour for their vehicle at the touch of a button.
