BMW iX xDrive50 Electric SAV Arrives Q1 2022

The BMW iX xDrive50 purely electric all-wheel drive Sports Activity Vehicle is powered by 516 horsepower in combined electric motors with an estimated range of around 300 miles at a price of $84,195 (including $995 destination charge). Plugging the BMW iX xDrive50 into a fast-charging station with 10 percent charge for example, enables its range to be increased by up to 90 miles in just ten minutes at 200 kW. Using the same fast charger, it would take less than 40 minutes to increase the high-voltage battery’s state of charge from 10 to 80 percent. A more powerful iX M60 model, with over 600 horsepower and the first all-electric Sports Activity Vehicle from BMW M GmbH, is planned for the future. U.S. market launch expected in Q1 of 2022.
