The new BMW iX – vision becomes reality
The BMW iX is the symbol for a new era of mobility at BMW. Conceived for fully-electric driving pleasure from the outset, it completely redefines the successful concept of the BMW Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV). With its totally newly-developed, precise and minimalist design, the BMW iX is the first model in a future-oriented generation of automobiles, which are redefining the driving experience, the feeling of space, and the relationship between the car and its passengers.
The home of high tech and Shy Tech
Experience the future of mobility with the BMW iX. It is the first BMW based on the BMW Group’s new, modular and scalable components for the future. Propulsion comes courtesy of the fifth generation of BMW eDrive technology. The drivetrain, which was developed by BMW Group, generates, according to the latest calculations, more than 370 kW/500 hp and allows a range of over 600 kilometres in WLTP cycle. This is the equivalent of more than 300 miles according to EPA test cycle FTP-75. (All specifications regarding mileages, energy consumption and range are predictions, based on the current development status of the vehicle.) The new charging technology on the BMW iX allows DC rapid charging with an output of up to 200 kW. This allows the battery to be charged from 10 to 80 percent of its total capacity in under 40 minutes.
Behind the powerful appearance of the BMW iX lies a lot of high tech. One symbol of this is the new BMW grille. This “intelligence surface” contains cameras, radar and many more sensors, takes on digital functions, and has a self-healing effect. As far as the driver is concerned, the technology remains in the background. Its functions are only apparent when they are being used. This Shy Tech philosophy makes for new design elements in both the interior and the exterior.
