The BMW iX becomes a powered athlete: From June, M GmbH will be selling the SUV as its first electric model, also as the iX M60. From 130,200 euros, BMW’s factory tuner promises record-breaking performance data.
Around a third more expensive than the previous top model, the iX presented at the electronics fair CES in Las Vegas comes with its two motors to 455 kW / 690 PS. With 1015 Nm it is the first BMW to achieve a four-digit torque. According to BMW, the so-called Launch Control even briefly unlocks 1100 Nm.
Although it weighs around 2.5 tons, the iX accelerates from standstill to 100 km / h in 3.8 seconds and, according to the manufacturer, reaches a top speed of 250 km / h. That is 50 km / h more than the production model. BMW specifies the range of the approximately 111 kWh battery with 566 kilometers and consumption of 21.7 kWh at best. The design has also been refined a bit, the equipment expanded and the set-up made a bit sportier. (dpa / swi)
