BMW was one of the first brands to take electricity as a means of mobility. Since the launch of the i3, which has been its most popular electric car to date, numerous units have been added to that family. Everything indicates that the BMW iX1 will become the next best-selling electric of those in Munich. Despite its recent launch, we already know what the prices are for the Spanish market. We give you a small advance: from 54,900 euros.
The third generation of the BMW X1 has been born completely revolutionary. With a very attractive design, the iX1 presents a scent of complete normality. Nothing in it makes you think that it is electric, and only the details reveal its efficient mechanics. A more conservative style than that of the BMW iX, which follows the same line of recent releases as the BMW iX3 or the BMW i4.
From the doors inside, the presentation structure has already become the new standard in the house. A curved double panel system dominates the entire dashboard. The liberation of space has allowed BMW to offer better interior dimensions, especially in the rear row of seats, which now enjoy 5 centimeters more wheelbase, and in the trunk, with an acceptable capacity of 490 liters, only 50 less than the thermal versions.
Although the arrival of new mechanical units is expected later, during the launch stage the BMW iX1 will only be available in the xDrive30 version. It consists of two electric motors, one on each axle with a maximum combined power of 313 horsepower and 494 Nm of torque. With a 64.7 kWh capacity battery, the Homologated autonomy reaches up to 438 kilometers in WLTP cycle.
That same unit is the one that can already be booked in Spain. If we enter the configurator we see how BMW will allow us to take various packages for the exterior: Base, X-Line and M Sport, with which we accentuate the sporty lines. Up to 10 different body colors, where the positioning color stands out, the metallic Utah Orange. As for sets of wheels, sizes between 17 and 20 inches are contemplated.
When setting sales prices, The BMW iX1 reaches a starting price of 54,900 euros, without offers or promotions. This amount prevents you from benefiting from the assistance programs of the MOVES III Plan. If you wish, you can now reserve a unit and be one of the first to enjoy the iX1. The cost of the reservation is 300 euros, which will be returned if the operation does not come to fruition, or discounted if you finally keep the car. The first deliveries will be made from the month of November.
