Fast charging technology on the BMW iX pure electric SUV allows for an 80 percent charge in just 31 minutes.
BMW India announced the launch of its much-anticipated all-electric SUV iX in the country on Thursday. The BMW iX pure electric SUV’s dual lithium-ion battery pack promises a range of 425 kilometres. The price of this car, which starts at Rs. 1.16 crore, has already been announced by BMW (ex-showroom).
Both AC and DC fast chargers can be used to charge the BMW iX.
The BMW iX can be charged up to 80% in 31 minutes using a 150 kW DC fast charger, giving it a range of 95 kilometres. The electric SV can be charged to 80% capacity in 73 minutes with a 50 kW DC charger, or to full capacity in seven hours with an AC charger.
Sharp dual-beam LED headlamps with integrated LED daytime running lights, large kidney grilles, sculpted bumper, and 3D bonnet characterise the BMW iX. The car’s side profile features sporty and large alloy wheels, a flared shoulder, rectangular wheel arches, frameless windows, body integrated door handles, and a clean look. Taillights with LEDs have been added to the back.
With its overall layout and features, the BMW iX has a premium appeal inside the cabin. Its cabin takes a minimalist approach, focusing on the occupants’ comfort and space.
A 9-inch touchscreen curved glass infotainment display angled towards the driver, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a race-car inspired hexagonal steering wheel, a sky lounge panorama glass roof, multifunction seats with massage function, leather upholstery, ambient lighting, and an 18-speaker Harman Kardon surround sound system, to name a few features. The SUV has a boot capacity of up to 1,750 litres.
The BMW iX’s eDrive technology ensures that power is delivered to all four wheels via dual electric motors on each axle, which are combined with two lithium-ion batteries totaling 76.6 kWh. The SUV has a total power output of 326 hp and can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.1 seconds. Personal, Sport, and Efficient are the three driving modes available to the car.
The iX electric SUV, according to BMW, has Shy Tech, or stealth technology, which includes an intelligent kidney grille with sensors, camera and radar technology, a proximity sensor in body edging, flush door openers, washer under the front logo, washer under the rear logo, integrated speakers, and a head-up display, among other things.
Despite being an electric vehicle, the IconicSounds Electric technology allows it to produce driving sounds.
