The new 2022 BMW iX was officially unveiled online on the specified date previously assigned by the company, and the new car represents the production version of the BMW Vision iNEXT electric concept.
This comes after last July witnessed the launch of the BMW iX3 – the fully electric version of the 2021 X3.
This fully electric SUV is based on an entirely new chassis developed by the Bavarian company BMW for its upcoming electric cars, and it also has highly advanced self-driving technologies.
The exterior of the BMW iX represents a distinctive re-imagining of the powerful proportions of a large BMW SAV. The BMW iX is comparable with the BMW X5 in length and width and is almost the same height as the BMW X6 on account of its flowing roofline. The size of its wheels, meanwhile, brings to mind the BMW X7.
Down to the interior of the German electric car, we note that it is the first production BMW to get a hexagonally shaped steering wheel, which adds a futuristic touch drawn from the world of concept cars. The design of this steering wheel helps the driver better see the large display that controls the information system and the digital instrument panel that is located behind the steering wheel.
The mechanical specifications is the most important thing about the 2022 BMW iX, which is was equipped with the fifth generation of BMW electric motors. The car relies on a pair of electric motors that produce more than 500 horsepower from their work together, and it accelerates from zero to a speed of 100 km / h in less than 5 seconds.
A gross energy content of more than 100 kWh should enable the latest-generation high-voltage battery to record a range of over 600 kilometers in the WLTP cycle. That equates to more than 480 km according to the EPA’s FTP-75 test procedure.
