Performance

Engine

Transmission

Fused to the e-motors is a single ratio automatic transmission.


Drivetrain

On default, power surges to all four wheels (BMW eDrive Technology - fifth-generation), via the BMW Intelligent Electric All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system. 

Featured as a selectable is an Integral Active Steering system, offering a Rear-Wheel Drive setup (RWD).

Acceleration

Acceleration from 0 to 100 KM/H is done in 4.6 seconds (iX xDrive50 Sport) and 3.8 seconds (iX M60). 

Top speeds are 200 KM/H (iX xDrive50 Sport) and 250 KM/H (iX M60).

Fuel Consumption

Unchanged, AC charging (11 KW, Type 2, wallbox) takes 11 hours for a 0% to 100% State of Charge (SoC), while DC charging (195 KW, CCS2) takes 35 minutes for a 0% to 80% SoC.

Newly installed, AC charging (22 KW, Type 2) takes 5 hours and 30 minutes for a 0% to 100% SoC.

Comfort

Ride Comfort

Suspension-wise, fitted is a double wishbone (front) and multi-link (rear) setup, incorporated with the BMW Adaptive Dual-Axle Air Suspension system (M-tuned). 

Overall, it is spacious and extremely comfortable. Handling is refined and agile, and the drive quality is good with a wonderfully smooth powertrain delivery. 


Sound Insulation

Good sound insulation with most of the NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) aspects accounted for. 

The cabin is able to suppress wind, road and tyre noises well and make them barely noticeable, even when cruising through bumpy asphalts.

Wrap Up

Conclusion

The new BMW iX is a marvel of its class, built with a sporty and elegant outlook, offering both performance and practicality.

A striking exterior, it is well designed with the sharp yet harmonious proportions donating a powerful overall contour, emphasising its wide body scale. 

Quality of the equipment and materials installed inside of the car is also impressive with the upscale, mature design and restrained detailing. 

All in all, coupled with its dynamic and fully-electric powertrain, the 2024 iX is more than just an e-SAV, it’s an experience.
