Based on the new-gen X1 that was launched in India earlier this year, the iX1 shares an identical design with little to set it apart as an electric vehicle.  The interior too is identical to the internal combustion powered BMW SUV replete with the curved display housing a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster and the 10.7-inch touchscreen.

In terms of equipment, the iX1 is quite well-kitted out with features such as adaptive LED headlamps, adaptive suspension, dual-zone climate control, driver-seat memory function, panoramic sunroof, connected car tech, hands-free parking and a Harman Kardon sound system. Safety tech on board includes ADAS functions, ESC, traction control and tyre pressure monitoring.


Coming to the powertrain, the iX1 gets a 66.4 kWh battery pack paired with two electric motors – one on each axle. Total system output stands at 308 bhp and 494 Nm with the SUV claimed to sprint from 0-100 kmph in 5.6 seconds. The iX has a WLTP-certified range of up to 440 km and supports up to 11 kW AC and 130 kW DC fast charging.

BMW says that each unit of the electric SUV will come with a complimentary 11 kW wall box charger with owners also able to access fast chargers located at BMW dealerships across 35 cities. The 11 kW charger will juice up the battery from 0 to 100 per cent in 6.3 hours while the 130 kW DC fast charger takes about 29 minutes to charger from 10 to 80 per cent.


The iX1 will go up against electric SUVs such as the Volvo XC40 Recharge and the Mercedes-Benz EQB. It will also see competition from the likes of the Kia EV6 and Hyundai Ioniq 5.
