Back in 2018, BMW unveiled the Vision iNext concept car. At that point, the German car manufacturer said that the prototype would be at the base of a future electric production model.
And now we have the final product. This is the 2022 BMW iX, the first electric SUV developed by the German car manufacturer on a dedicated platform. It will be built in Germany at the Dingolfing facility starting next year.
Aside from the new exterior design, which was inspired by the iNext, the new model has impressive performance for an electric vehicle.
The powertrain will be the 5th generation of the BMW eDrive system and it will deliver more than 500 horsepower. The battery pack prepared by the German manufacturer will have more than 100 kWh and the range will be grater than 600 kilometers.
Also, the new BMW iX will be able to run from not to 100 km/h in under 5 seconds, while the charging will be interesting. According to BMW, the iX will be able to be plugged-in to a 200 kW DC station. Under this condition, the car will be able to recharge up to 80% in just 40 minutes. Also, a quick charge should add 75 miles to the range.
