German automaker BMW introduced the 2024 BMW XM 50e to its XM portfolio soon after it added the BMW Label Red.
The manufacturer debuted the XM 50e silently through a YouTube video as an entry-level SUV that is expected to sport a price lesser than that of the Label Red and be available in over 50 individual colors.
When the SUV moves at a slow speed, the front and rear wheels will move in opposite directions for more agility in restricted spaces. On the other hand, all wheels move in the same direction which increases the stability of the XM 50e.
