Among the new 2023 BMW’s can have automated tiered RPM break in limits on their gasoline engines. EVs can be really easy to implement software program limiters for break in necessities.

This one would not, it is full energy day one, no restraints. Handbook is evident about break-in like talked about beforehand.

Good video although!

I feel his level is that if break in was mechanically required BMW would implement a decreased energy mode for 300 miles like on different of their automobiles. Reality they do not do this signifies it is extra of a CYA from authorized than a mechanical necessity coming from the engineers.

Good numbers right here and in step with Automotive and Driver. I feel probably the most spectacular factor within the M50 is the 20-70 acceleration, however the 1/4 occasions aren’t any slouch both.

A part of me looks like there’s an additional 100 hp/150 torque hiding someplace that may very well be unleashed given the iX m60…surprise if that is even doable with a EV

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.
