The 750-horsepower hybrid BMW X8M will be the company’s most powerful vehicle.

BMW will soon launch the BMW X8 crossover, as well as the flagship hybrid version of the BMW X8M, which will be the Munich company’s most powerful production model to date.

BMW has confirmed that the rival to the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid, “an all-new powerful, hybrid-electric vehicle”, will be shown to the media at the Los Angeles Auto Show on November 16. A full presentation will take place on November 29th.

The BMW X8 will be a sportier and bolder version of the seven-seater BMW X7. While the X8 was previously thought to borrow design cues from the smaller X6, the first spy shots show the car has a large, long body. This suggests that the BMW X8 will receive three rows of seats with six captain’s chairs or a solid rear sofa.

It is expected to share its platform and engines with the X7. That means a range of six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, a possible plug-in hybrid and a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 523 hp. in the BMW X8 M50i.

The top-end BMW X8 M will receive a hybrid 4.4-liter V8 with an electric motor and a battery. Insiders speculate that the result could be up to 750bhp, making this BMW the most powerful BMW to date.

The 750-horsepower hybrid BMW X8M will be the company's most powerful vehicle.

The BMW X8 M hybrid, internally dubbed Project Rockstar, will combine an electric motor with around 200 hp. with a gasoline engine and will offer four-wheel drive. The switchable system of the M5 and M8 models will likely be used, allowing rear-wheel drive if necessary.

496 hp all wheel drive and HarmonyOS Huaweis first electric car

Judging by the rumors that circulate in the Chinese (and not only) media and relate to the premiere dates of new Huawei products, the company has revised its announcement strategy. If earlier car premieres did not intersect with other devices, now it is the other way around: cars are presented on the same day as smartphones. And so it will be with the company’s first electric car, the Aito M5e.

496 hp, all-wheel drive and HarmonyOS.  Huawei's first electric car will be presented on September 12 - along with Huawei Mate 50

Recall, the other day it became known that the premiere of the nova 10 series smartphones will take place on July 4, and on the same day, Huawei will present its second car, the large Aito M7 hybrid crossover. It is possible that the car, smartphones and other novelties will make their debut on the same stage. And now the same is being said about Huawei’s first electric car, the Aito M5e. Its premiere is scheduled for September 12, and on the same day, Huawei is rumored to introduce the Mate 50.

There are no official details about the Aito M5e, but the car has already been listed in the Chinese regulator’s database, which has revealed key details. So, Aito M5e will receive two electric motors: 224 hp. on the front axle and 272 hp. – on the back. That is, the crossover will be all-wheel drive. The capacity of the traction battery will be 72 kWh. There is no data on the mileage on a single charge, but you can count on about 500 km.

Aito M5e is a mid-size crossover, its length, width and height are, respectively, 4785, 1930 and 1620 mm. But at the same time, it will be spacious inside, since the length of the wheelbase is 2880 mm. Weight Aito M5e, depending on the capacity of the traction battery, will be 2235 or 2350 kg. Externally, the Aito M5e will repeat the Aito M5 hybrid crossover, the first Huawei car. The interior will also be about the same as the Aito M5 – with a large screen in the center and a multimedia and entertainment system running HarmonyOS.

American companies Tesla, Ford, GM, Rivian and Lucid have markedly increased the cost of electric vehicles over the past few months, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Manufacturers said the price increase was due to increased costs for battery materials. In addition, the demand for electric vehicles began to grow sharply against the backdrop of rising gasoline prices.

Last week, for example, General Motors added $6,250 to GMC Hummer electric pickups, which now range in price from $85,000 to $105,000. General Motors announced a rise in prices for materials and logistics.
