The M60 has a bigger armature within the rear to get greater torque numbers. That does not essentially preclude some type of quick time period “overdrive” increase like Tesla launched over time for a charge however simply mentioning the M60 energy is not purely a tune.
I feel providing an electrical drivetrain that would deal with 100-200 hp enhance over inventory, offering a Tune 1/2 manufacturing facility choice, cost $1500-$2000 per 100 HP would make sense.
First, BMW may provide the identical drivetrain in a number of autos throughout collection, differentiate them by, say, setting the bottom fashions with the manufacturing facility tune, the center tier mannequin with Tune 1, the luxurious automotive with Tune 2, all utilizing the identical motor setup. For the M fashions, the manufacturing facility motors can be extra highly effective and have superior efficiency than Tune 2, with further software program tune ranges to amp up efficiency at a value.
Two benefits to us can be extra efficiency with no modifications to our autos and all achieved by the producer beneath guarantee. For BMW, a income and a strategy to stand out from different EV firms.
Not being an engineer I do not understand how possible or how a lot weight a base automotive would incur to have the identical motors as the next trim stage mannequin, for the sake of getting a standard motor structure, however it’s actually an fascinating thought.
