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 floorpan 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 range like this, we expect this BMW iX to be very popular!
