With an estimated price that starts from RM820,000, BMW’s latest M flagship car marks the next generation of BMW M vehicles in conjunction with BMW M’s 50th anniversary this year. There’s a lot of hype surrounding this car and we won’t be surprised if there’s a high demand for it here in the country.
BMW XM features the M Hybrid drive system
According to Hans de Visser, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia, “We are beyond thrilled to introduce the First-Ever BMW XM to Malaysia. This exclusive Sports Activity Vehicle is the first-ever BMW M GmbH high-performing car to feature an M HYBRID drive system, thus extending the realm of e-mobility within the high-performance car segment in Malaysia. It is an electrifying reinvention of automotive ideals and the extreme performance characteristics will make every drive a luxurious experience for our Malaysian customers and supporters.”
“Our team at BMW Group Malaysia was truly touched by the enthusiastic support from our massive BMW M community at the recent ///M event on Malaysia Day. The overwhelming excitement and love, coupled with the debut of the First-Ever BMW XM at the end of BMW M GmbH’s anniversary year, makes this announcement particularly well-timed,” added Hans.
