A number of automakers have lined up their latest products in December to end the year with a bang. A majority of these will be SUVs from brands like BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Toyota. Last month, car manufacturers like BYD, Jeep, Tata Motors and Toyota introduced a range of products. The momentum is expected to continue in December as well. Here is a look at the car launches in December.

BMW XM |  The BMW XM will be the first M model to carry a plug-in hybrid V8 powertrain with a power output of 653hp and 800Nm. The powertrain is paired with an 8-speed automatic gearbox, which sends power to all four wheels. BMW XM is capable of running in pure EV mode with a range of up to 80km. In terms of size, the BMW XM is quite similar to the X7 even though the new car sports a radical exterior design such as the massive illuminated grille, a split headlamp set-up, and vertically stacked exhaust rear outlets.
