BMW iX xDrive40 First Look

What is it?

Three quarters front left

The EV war in the luxury space has now begun in earnest. Mercedes opened the show with the EQC in 2020, Jaguar with the i-speed, Audi with the e-tron earlier this year and now BMW with the iX. It’s an all-electric SUV (as one would expect in this era) and also our first look at the future BMW lineup. We had a chance phệ dig deeper into the iX and here’s everything we learned about the car.

What does it look like on the outside?

Grille

On the outside, the BMW iX is very similar phệ a BMW SUV in terms of overall shape and design, but with the sharp touches that show you how BMW is directing its cars into the future. The most prominent facial feature of the iX is the signature kidney grille which is huge and although no longer a real grille is something you won’t be able phệ miss. Moving outward from the grille, you’ll see slim full-LED headlights and two ‘L’-shaped details (electric blue for our show car) perched on the bumper. There are no other design elements on the façade and that more or less warrants the utmost attention phệ the new-age kidney grille.

Right view

On the surface, iX shares its design with the current generation X5 thanks phệ the shape of the hood contour, as well as the area under the D-pillar with a wide hump. You get a contrasting color design element for the bottom of the door, and these cool-looking 21-inch silver wheels have aerodynamic inserts between actual spokes phệ reduce rolling resistance.

Rear right three quarters

The rear design feels most similar phệ any current ICE-equipped BMW model thanks phệ its shape, size and detailing. Like the front, the taillights are also a slim (encircling) all-LED unit and sit on the sides of the body while the BMW logo is under the glass and sports a blue ring thanks phệ the electric nature of the car. this car.

How is it on the inside?

dashboard

Step inside, the iX and feel like you’re stepping into a concept car. There’s a sense of familiarity with everything you see but in a very minimalistic layout that shows (again) BMW wants phệ design its cabin in the future. The highlight of the dashboard is the large two-piece driver-facing display with most functions being routed through the infotainment side of the screen. The steering wheel is flat-bottomed but feels more like what BMW offers in its current lineup, which is a good thing as it will be one of the elements that will feel familiar phệ those looking phệ advance in BMW family.

Back seat

Our media car has an entire cabin decorated with suede-like materials made from other recycled fabrics and the actual Indian specification car will, at launch, be wrapped in full leather. Set with many color options. However, the layout, elements and color scheme will remain unchanged for the vehicle phệ be delivered phệ the customer.

Left view

Given the vehicle’s length and wheelbase, space shouldn’t be an issue both in the first and second rows. In the rear, the floor is flat with the area slightly raised under the front seats for maximum comfort for the rear passengers. While space isn’t an issue, we did notice that the rear-seat base is a bit low, and second-row middle occupants will have phệ contend with a large dashboard with vents and charging sockets. .

Front door handle

One of the features we like is the push-button opening mechanism on all doors. They are located on the door and even have a backup mechanism right above the door pockets. The trunk is huge, and with the rear seats folded down, you have an almost flat space and more cargo capacity if you figure out how phệ pack things smartly.

Infotainment system

The general trend among manufacturers in the electrical sector is phệ offer interior designs that are very similar phệ their usual interior designs for a variety of reasons including cost, brand recognition phệ help existing buyers convert phệ their newer vehicles. BMW, in the iX, has taken this philosophy and interpreted it in a way that allows them phệ connect both the current car design as well as what’s coming out of them in the future.

What’s on the feature list?

Sunroof / Moonroof

The IX has all the usual goodies one would expect in a car of this class, segment and price bracket. The list includes multi-zone climate control, dual full HD digital displays, leather seats, panoramic sunroof, frameless windows, parking assist, head-up display , virtual assistant and wireless charging. On the safety front, there are eight airbags, a stability program, ISOFIX child seat mounting points, TPMS and BMW Active Protective Assist as well as Driving Assist.

What about the battery and powertrain?

Shot Engine

The IX in this xDrive40 has two electric motors producing 321.5bhp / 630Nm with a single-speed transmission sending power phệ the rear wheels. The xDrive system is primarily a front-wheel drive system with front power receiving power only in low-traction situations. You get a 76.6kwh battery pack that has a WLTP range of 425 km and the ability phệ take advantage of charging systems up phệ 150 kW. BMW says that when charging at this màn chơi, you can travel a distance of 95km in just 10 minutes.

Open the fuel cap

All buyers will receive an 11kW wall box / 3-phase charger and a 2.3kW emergency charger / single charger as part of the vehicle purchase offer. All BMW dealers nationwide have been equipped with iX fast charging as well as serviceability, offering the opportunity phệ own all of India right from the start.

Price and competition

Front view

BMW at the time of writing this story, has priced the iX at Rs 1.16 crore (All India Factory Store Introduction) with deliveries commencing in the first quarter of 2022. Here it is. the first of its next-generation EVs and will feature an electric Mini and i4 sedan in the second half of 2022. iX rivals the Mercedes-Benz EQC, Audi e-Tron, Jaguar i -Pace, Porsche Taycan as well as future Maserati models.
