Late last year BMW unveiled the iX electric crossover, but it left out most of the details. Now BMW has released all the specs and pricing for the iX xDrive50.
When the iX arrives in Q1 2022, it will arrive in only version, the iX XDrive50. Its two electric motors generate a combined 516 horsepower and 564 pound-feet of torque. The rear motor has 335 hp, while the front motor has 268 hp. The XDrive50 can accelerate from 0-62 mph in 4.6 seconds.
If you want more power, BMW has confirmed an iX M60 model that will have over 600 horsepower.
The xDrive50 is powered by a 111.5 kWh battery pack, but its maximum capacity it limited to 106.3 kWh. BMW has not announced the EPA-estimated driving range, but BMW says that it will have a driving range around 300 miles. Recharging it using a DC fast charger you can juice it up from 10% to 80% in 40 minutes or at 200 kW charging speeds you can add 90 miles of range in 10 minutes.
The iX’s standard suspension uses lift-related shock absorbers, which lessen the amount of body dive when driving over large bumps and improve the overall comfort when the road gets a bit rough. An adaptive air suspension is optional and the optional Integral Active Steering system adds rear-wheel steering.
Lastly the iX xDrive50 starts at $84,195, including the destination charge.
