BMW XM Carbon Black Stuns in Saint-Tropez Photoshoot

BMW reveals the US leads XM sales with 26%, trailed by China (23%) and the Middle East (8%). If the X5 M or X6 M don’t impress, and the X7 M60i’s third row isn’t needed, Europe offers a plug-in hybrid SUV.


BMW’s exclusive M model makes a grand entrance in France, priced at a luxurious €178,000. This striking SUV boasts a Carbon Black Metallic finish, capturing onlookers in Saint-Tropez. This also includes 22-inch two-tone wheels and sleek, glossy black trim—elegantly replacing the XM’s customary gold accents.

The interior is distinctive from any other BMW now on the market in that it combines the well-known Silverstone Merino leather with Vintage Coffee leather on the top surfaces. The fairly uncommon combination stands out in particular on the headliner’s Alcantara-wrapped geometric design with prism-like elements. It is illuminated by 100 LEDs positioned on the sides and can change colour depending on various conditions.

The so-called M Lounge is yet another XM-only feature. To create a warm ambience, it alludes to the back seat, which has a material design that extends into the door trim panels. Even though there isn’t a third row, the wheelbase is the same as the X7. Thus back seat occupants have plenty of legroom.

BMW has versions of the XM that are both more affordable and expensive and will launch later this year. There are some markets, mostly in Europe, where a six-cylinder 50e is anticipated. The company’s most potent road-legal production vehicle will be a Label Red with the electrified V8 tuned to about 750 hp at the other end of the lineup. The limited-run special edition will set you back at least $186,000 in the US, which will be somewhat pricey.
