Next BMW M SUVs could switch to plug-in hybrid power

Next-generation BMW M models could switch to plug-in hybrid power to meet stringent emissions standards coming into force in Europe – but the company insists petrol-electric tech will be exclusive to larger models, if it is adopted at all. The head of BMW M Division, Markus Flasch, has told Australian media at the recent M Festival that it has hybrid power ‘on standby’ ready to use but there are still no firm plans – and no rush – to introduce electrification.

2020 BMW X5 M, X6 M leaked

The upcoming BMW X5 and X6 M have been leaked ahead of launch, revealing their aggressive styling and carbon-fibre detailing. Following in the footsteps of the new X3 M and X4 M, the bigger SUV twins will be offered in regular M or more aggressive M Competition guise. The photos, posted on Bimmerpost, reveal both super-SUVs will have pumped-up guards and gaping air intakes up front, along with what looks like carbon-fibre detailing around their edges.

BMW X5 M Sport Package

Unlike arch-rival Mercedes Benz, which has an AMG variant for nearly every one of its cars, BMW has previously said it will only apply the M badge and treatment to models that suit. Although this is by no means the full M treatment, with the performance staying the same, BMW has today announced that for the first time in its nine-year history, the company's large SAV (Sport Activity Vehicle), the BMW X5, will be available with an M Sport Package.
