It may have taken a while, but finally BMW’s I range of EVs is finally starting to fill out. First, we had the i3 and i8; now we have the i4 and this – the iX SUV. With bold styling and impressive stats, this is taking the fight straight to Audi’s e-tron, Mercedes’ EQC and, of course, the Tesla Model X.
This is the top-spec iX xDrive50 M-Sport model, so there are dual motors meaning it’s AWD, producing 516bhp and 765Nm of torque and giving ample acceleration to 62mph in a smidge over 4.5 seconds. But sitting in that floorplan is a monster 105kWh battery, which means you will get 391 miles on a charge – that’s enough to get you from London to the Scottish border without stopping!
The iX is a ground-up EV design, unlike the i4, so there’s huge amounts of space inside, an amazing, modern interior and more tech acronyms than you can imagine.
With a range like this, we expect this BMW iX to be very popular!

As taxi driver Aamer Mahmood arrived at Stratstone dealership to pick up his last customer, nothing looked out of the ordinary. What he didn’t know is that BOTB presenter Christian had sneakily pre-booked Aamer!
Delivery driver Tate was speechless when he answered the door to BOTB presenter Christian – and who could blame him? The Essex local had just won a BMW X5 xDrive 30d M-Sport worth £72,190) and £30,000 cash in this week’s Dream Car Competition!
BMW-fanatic Matthew could barely contain himself this morning when he received a surprise call from BOTB presenter Christian. “Things are about to get a bit better, aren’t they?” he asked nervously.
