The firm officially announced it by unveiling the sales figures of its sports department for the year 2020 (144,218 units sold worldwide, new record).
An X8 M plug-in hybrid?
If the propeller brand has not yet specified the exact nature of the engine that will drive this machine, the first information from the site BMWblog however report a plug-in hybrid powertrain that will be installed in the future … X8 M.
This PHEV version of the German behemoth would combine a twin-turbo 4.4L V8 with two electric motors positioned on each axle for a total power of 750-760 hp, which would make the SUV the most powerful road model M in history. No more no less. We can not wait to see it…
