From the launch of this iX in late-2021, BMW was asking from around £70,000 for the entry-level iX xDrive40 'Sport' version of this car, that model available in plusher 'M Sport' form for £3,000 more. In both cases, you get a 71kWh battery, a 326hp total output and a 257 mile driving range. Ideally though, you'd want to stretch to one of the bigger-batteried iX xDrive50 models, priced in base 'Sport' form from around £92,000; again, it's £3,000 more for 'M Sport' trim. With those '50'-series variants, you get a 105.2kWh battery, a 523hp total output and a 380 mile driving range. The same bigger battery features in the top iX M60, which is in a price league of its own, costing around £112,000. It offers 619hp and a 357 miles of driving range.
The iX has more computing power for data processing than any other model in BMW's line-up. Included is over-the-air functionality via 5G, which means that over-the-air updates can be uploaded into the iX during the customer's period of ownership. That system will also be used to progressively update the car's Level 3 autonomous driving technology. Full-LED lights are standard, though buyers will also be able to specify Laser lights as an option. Wheel sizes are similar to those of the X7, so the iX offers up to 22-inch aerodynamically optimised rim sizes and 275/40 profile rubber.
An optional 'Sport' package gives you aerodynamically optimised 21-inch light-alloy wheels in a double-spoke design with Midnight Grey finish, plus Sport brakes with blue-painted calipers. There's also an optional 'BMW Individual Exterior Line Titanium Bronze' finish available as an option, with selected colour accents that lend the iX a particularly exclusive aura. With this, the three-dimensional structural elements within the BMW kidney grille, the door openers, the lower edging of the side windows (which extends into the D-pillar) and the inserts in the outer areas of the rear apron all gain surfacing in Titanium Bronze.
