BMW i5 M60 xDrive: powertrain

Globally, the BMW i5 is available in two guises – eDrive 40 and M60 xDrive, with the latter set to be available at launch. The M60 xDrive gets an electric motor on each axle putting out a combined 601hp and 820Nm torque, helping the sedan sprint from 0-100kph in just 3.8 seconds before topping out at an electronically limited top speed of 230kph. It gets BMW’s xDrive all-wheel drive system as standard as opposed to the rear-wheel drive configuration seen on the eDrive 40 variant with a single electric motor.



BMW i5 M60 xDrive: battery pack, range

The i5 comes equipped with a 81.2kWh lithium-ion battery pack, with the India-bound M60 xDrive variant offering a WLTP certified range of up to 516km on a single charge. It gets a 11kW AC charging functionality as standard, which can be increased to 22kW with an optional onboard charger. Moreover, the electric sedan also gets DC charging capability up to 205kW, with BMW claiming a 10-80 percent charge within 30 minutes.


BMW i5 M60 xDrive: price, deliveries

Do note that pricing for the BMW i5 M60 xDrive is yet to be revealed. Upon arrival, it will have no direct rival in the Indian market, but it’s expected to command a significant premium over its ICE sibling. Prices for the i5 could even touch the Rs 1 crore mark. BMW says that deliveries will be done on a first-come-first-serve basis starting May 2024.
