2023 BMW XM Hybrid SUV – Although we are usually disappointed when a concept is made into a production model, the BMW XM has our trust that we will enjoy the road-going vehicle as much as the show car. The unofficial rendering by Kolesa shows what buyers can expect to find at their local BMW dealers from 2022, although it is less striking than the Concept XM. The Bavarian marque has already stated that the final car will keep approximately 90 percent of its styling. Don’t be surprised if there are no major changes to the model. This rendering shows the plug-in hybrid SUV with standard door handles and a more aggressive front bumper.

The Concept XM’s sharp side mirror caps have been replaced by a more traditional M-specific set. The blacked-out upper characters line has been eliminated. The dark decal that was on the Concept XM’s side mirror caps has been replaced by a more conventional M-specific set. In the same vein, the shiny areas of each wheel, the insert is now metallic/chrome. It’s pictured here. We would choose the XM over any concept car. And we think it would look more radical with larger taillights and regular quad exhausts.
Beauty is always in the eyes of the beholder. The 2023 XM will be BMW’s most powerful production vehicle with a plug-in hybrid system that combines a V8 engine and an electric motor, producing approximately 750 horsepower. The M5 CS, with 626 horsepower and no hybrid assistance, holds the power crown.
