BMW announces prices of its iX models
June 2, 2021
BMW has announced UK pricing and specifications for the BMW iX ahead of the launch of the flagship electric model in November.
The new car ushers in an exciting new chapter for the brand, the fully electric Sports Activity Vehicle being the first model based on a new, modular, scalable architecture on which the future of the BMW Group will be built. Conceived from the outset for purely electric mobility and sustainable manufacturing techniques, the BMW iX combines emission-free driving pleasure and sporting agility with a highly usable operating range and luxurious spaciousness.
When the vehicle launches later this year, the model range will comprise the xDrive50 with a combined output of 523hp and a range of up to 380 miles (WLTP), plus the xDrive40 that produces 326hp and is able to cover up to 257 miles on a single charge.
Powerful performance is instantaneous and all with zero tailpipe emissions. Both versions are equipped with an intelligent all-wheel-drive system, making the iX the very first all-wheel-drive pure electric vehicle produced by BMW.
The impressive battery range is complemented with flexible charging that is designed to be as convenient as possible. DC power can be taken on board at a rate of up to 195kW (BMW iX xDrive50) or 150kW (BMW iX xDrive40). This allows the battery charge to be increased from 10 to 80 per cent in around 35 minutes in the xDrive50 or 31 minutes in the xDrive40.
Both variants will be available in Sport or M Sport trim levels, with the standard specification including 21-inch alloy wheels, Driving Assistant Professional, Parking Assistant, BMW Live Cockpit Professional, climate comfort windscreen, four-zone air conditioning, heated front seats, wireless phone charging and Shadow Line exterior trim. An array of options, including dedicated Packs that group extras which complement each together, allow for further personalisation.
Also set to join the model line-up at a later date is the BMW iX M60 which, with an expected maximum output in excess of 600hp, promises an exceptionally sporty all-electric driving experience.
