Today, we will show you some pictures of the all-new 2022 BMW X8 that have been published on the internet. We are talking about spy shots of a prototype of the German SUV, which was camouflaged to hide its upcoming features.
As many of you remember, BMW X7 is the largest member of the BMW X family of SUVs, but the Bavarian manufacturer has already confirmed that it will present a larger model which will be in the middle between X7 and Rolls-Royce’s “palace-on-wheels”, Cullinan, which is the most luxurious SUV in the world, since the English company Rolls-Royce is owned by BMW.
This new car that will bear the name X8 will try to compete with Lamborghini Urus and Bentley Bentayga.
Within this news, our dear ArabGT followers, we will show you pictures published by motor1 website, showing a test version of the X8 model that is currently being tested by BMW engineers.
The details available to us indicate that this upcoming new car will be equipped with two rows of seats that can accommodate 5 people as standard, or 4 people if the rear seats are ordered for two people instead of 3.
Some reports pointed out that this SUV would be available in a plug-in hybrid X8 M45e version that would share the setup of the BMW 745e, which combines a turbocharged 3.0-liter 6-cylinder gasoline engine and an electric motor, for a total power of 394 horsepower and 600 Newton-meters of torque.
It is expected that the BMW X8 would be available for sale in the global markets at the end of next year as a 2022 model, and then an M Power version would be available as a 2023 model, and it would be named X8 M.
