KUALA LUMPUR: BMW Malaysia has launched the XM Label Red plug-in hybrid sports activity vehicle (SAV), which is the most powerful production vehicle ever built by the Munich premium automaker.
It is priced at RM1,615,800 with 5-year extended warranty and service package, as well as sales and service tax (on the road, without insurance).
Duty free price in Langkawi is RM939,800.
With the Straight Line financing plan from BMW Group Financial Services Malaysia, the XM Label Red can be owned with a monthly instalment plan starting from RM18,707 (based on estimates of an 80% loan on a seven-year tenure).
The XM Label Red come with over 50 free colour customisation options, available for preview with the BMW Individual Visualizer.
Hans de Visser, managing director of BMW Group Malaysia said, “With the BMW XM Label Red, we are presenting to our customers here – the most powerful BMW production vehicle ever built! We are confident that this new SAV will not only turn heads on the road, but also shift perspective on electrified performance-oriented vehicles in Malaysia.”
The XM Label Red combines the M Hybrid system with a 4.4-litre M TwinPower Turbo V8 engine to deliver 748hp.
With a peak torque of 1,000Nm, it accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.8 seconds.
The M Hybrid system offers a pure electric range of up to 83km (WLTP).
There are two new colour options for the accent strip in either Toronto Red or Shadowline – both complemented by a red outline on the ‘XM’ model designation located by the front door.
There are also two new wheel options - either the bicolour 22-inch M light alloy wheels with red accents matched with the Toronto Red accent strip, or the bicolour black accent 23-inch M light alloy wheels in style Star Spoke matched with the Shadowline accent strip.
The striking bicolour motif continues inside, with upholstery that features a diamond-shaped texture and red stitching.
The red accent also extends to the instrument panel, door trim, as well as the centre console.
