    BMW iX xDrive 40 Review

    BMW is bringing a new range of electric cars to India and here is the first one. It is called the iX and will arrive in India in the first quarter of 2022.

    What is it?

    Left Front Three Quarter

    The EV fight in the luxury space has now begun in earnest. Mercedes opened the show with the EQC in 2020, Jaguar with the i-pace, Audi with the e-tron earlier this year and now BMW with the iX. It’s an all-electric SUV (as one would expect in this era) and is also our first glimpse of the BMW range of the future. We’ve had a chance to get up close with the iX and here is everything we learnt about the car.    

    How is it on the outside?

    Grille

    On the outside, the BMW iX is very much a BMW SUV in terms of the silhouette and overall design but with touches that show you where BMW is taking its cars for the future. The most dominating aspect of the iX’s face is the signature kidney grille which is massive and while no longer an actual grille is something you will not miss. Moving outwards from the grille, you get these slim full-LED headlamps and these two ‘L’ shaped elements (electric blue for our show car) that sit on the bumper. There are no other design elements on the face and that should more or less ensure that maximum attention to the new age kidney grille.

    Right Side View

    In profile, the iX shares its design with the current generation X5 thanks to the shape of the roofline, as well as the area under the D-pillar having wide haunches. You get a contrast coloured design element for the bottom of the doors and these very funky looking 21-inch silver wheels that have aerodynamic inserts between the actual spokes for reducing rolling resistance.  

    Right Rear Three Quarter

    The rear design feels most like any of the current ICE powered BMW models thanks to the shape, size and layout of the elements. Like the front, the tail lamps too are slim full-LED units (wraparound of course) and sit on the edges of the body while the BMW logo is below the glass and sports a blue ring thanks to the electric nature of this car.

    How is it on the inside?

    Dashboard

    Step inside, the iX and it almost feels like you are getting into a concept car. There’s a sense of familiarity with everything you see but in a very minimalistic layout indicating (once again) where BMW wants to take its cabin design in the future. The highlight of the dashboard is the massive two-piece screen that’s oriented towards the driver with almost all functions being routed through the infotainment side of the display. The steering is flat bottom but feels much like what BMW offers in its current range of vehicles which is a good thing as it will be one of the elements that will feel familiar to those looking to move up in the BMW family.

    Rear Seats

    Our media vehicle had the whole cabin trimmed out in a suede-like material which has been made from other recycled cloth and the actual India spec vehicle, when launched, will get full leather upholstery in a variety of colour options. However, the layout, elements and colour schemes will remain unchanged for the car that will be delivered to the customers.

    Left Side View

    Given the car’s length and wheelbase, space is not an issue at all both in the first and second row. In the latter, the floor is flat with even a slightly raised area under the front seats for maximum comfort for the rear occupants. While space is not an issue, we did find that the rear seat base is a bit low and the middle occupant for the second row will have to contend with a large console that houses the aircon vents and charging sockets. 

    Front Door Handle

    One of the features we liked was the button-operated door opening mechanism on all the doors. They are located on the door and even have a backup mechanism just above the door pockets. The boot is massive and with the rear seats folded down, you have an almost flat and wide space that’s more than capable of holding a lot of cargo if you figure out how to smartly package everything.  

    Infotainment System

    A common trend by manufacturers in the electric space has been to offer interior design very similar to that of their conventional range for a variety of reasons that include cost, brand identity to help existing buyers transition to their newer vehicles. BMW, in the iX, has taken this philosophy and interpreted it in a way that has allowed them to bridge both their current vehicle design as well as what is coming down the road from them in the future.  

    What’s on the feature list?

    Sunroof/Moonroof

    The iX gets all the usual niceties one would expect in a car of this class, segment and price bracket. This list includes multi-zone climate control, dual full HD digital displays, leather upholstery, panoramic sunroof, frameless windows, parking assist plus, head-up display, virtual assistant and wireless charging. On the safety front, there are eight airbags, a stability programme, ISOFIX child seat mounting points, TPMS and BMW’s Active Protect Assist as well as Driving Assist.    

    What about the battery and powertrain?

    Engine Shot

    The iX in this xDrive40 gets two electric motors that produce 321.5bhp/630Nm with a single-speed transmission sending power to the rear wheels. The xDrive is primarily an RWD system with the front getting power only in low grip situations. You get a 76.6kwh battery pack that has a WLTP range of 425km and the capability to take advantage of a charging system of up to 150 kW. BMW says that when charged at this level you can regain a range of 95km in just 10 minutes.

    Open Fuel Lid

    All buyers will get an 11kW wallbox/3-phase charger and an emergency 2.3kW/single charger as a part of the deal when buying the car. All of BMW’s dealerships across the country have been fitted with fast charging capability as well as the capability to service the iX offering the chance of pan India ownership right from the beginning.   

    Price and competition

    Front View

     BMW at the time of writing this story, has priced the iX at Rs 1.16 crore (Introductory all-India ex-showroom) with deliveries starting in the first quarter of 2022. It’s the first of its new generation EVs and will be joined by an electric Mini and the i4 sedan by the second half of 2022. The iX is a rival for the likes of the Mercedes-Benz EQC, Audi e-Tron, Jaguar i-Pace, Porsche Taycan as well as future models from Maserati.

            4953 mm

            The length of the car decides its segment. In India, cars that are less than 4 metres in length enjoy reduced excise duties.

            Length
            • Length: 4953

            Longer length results in more cabin space. It also adds to straight line stability.

          • Width
            1967 mm

            A car's width is defined as its widest point without its mirrors.

            Width
            • Width: 1967

            Although more width gives you more lateral space inside the cabin, it makes the car more difficult to park in narrow spots.

          • Height
            1695 mm

            The height of the car denotes the highest point of the vehicle from the ground.

            Height
            • Height: 1695

            Taller the car, the more headroom there is on offer inside the cabin. However, a tall boy stance also affect the car’s centre of gravity which can cause more body roll.

          • Wheelbase
            3000 mm

            The space between the center of the front and rear wheels.

            Wheelbase
            • Wheelbase: 3000

            The longer the wheelbase, the more space there is inside the cabin.

          • Ground Clearance
            906 mm

            It’s the space between the lowest point of the car and the ground.

            Ground Clearance
            • Ground Clearance: 906

            If the car has a good amount of clearance, it’s easier for it to clear big speed breakers and overall, deal with bad roads.

        • Capacity

          • Doors
            5 Doors

            The number of doors define the category of car. For example – four door means sedan, two-door means coupe while five-doors usually refer to a hatchback, MPV or an SUV.

            Doors
            • Doors: 5
          • Seating Capacity
            5 Person

          • No of Rows
            2 Rows

            Smaller cars usually have two rows which can seat five, but some SUVs and MPVs have three rows and can seat around 7-8 passengers.

          • Bootspace
            500 litres

            Boot space defines how practical the car is with respect to how much luggage it can carry.

            Bootspace
            • Bootspace: 500

            A boot with a large and wide opening is ideal for loading heavy items. Additionally, a lower loading height also makes it easy to put in luggage.

        • Suspensions, Brakes, Steering & Tyres

          • Front Suspension
            Double wishbone

            Almost all cars in India use an independent front suspension which is usually the MacPherson Strut type.

          • Rear Suspension
            Five-link

            The rear suspension can either be non-independent or independent.

            Most of the budget cars have non-independent suspension while the more expensive ones get independent rear suspension which offers better bump absorption.

          • Front Brake Type
            Ventilated Disc

            Most of the vehicles sold in India get ventilated or non-ventilated disc brakes upfront.

            - The ventilated discs are more popular thanks to them providing better stopping power and it also works well in hot conditions.

          • Rear Brake Type
            Ventilated Disc

            In affordable cars, drums brakes are fitted at the rear as they are cost effective.

            Disc setup at the rear is now getting more popular as cars are getting faster in the real world.

          • Steering Type
            Power assisted (Electric)

            Almost all steering systems in cars today have an assist to help park them better at low speeds - these can be hydraulic, electro-hydraulic or electric.

          • Wheels
            Alloy Wheels

            The wheels used on cars are either steel rims with plastic wheel cover hub or alloy wheels on higher spec models or expensive cars.

            Razor cut, or diamond cut alloy wheel design are not getting more popular. Manufacturers usually offer these in top-end trim of their car models.

          • Spare Wheel
            Alloy

            Important in a country with varying quality of roads, spare wheels ensure one doesn’t get stranded when one of the main tyres gets damaged.

            Select premium car models feature space savers (smaller than the stock wheels) to save on boot space.

          • Front Tyres

          I recently had the opportunity to experience the BMW iX, and I must say, it left a strong impression on me. This electric SUV seamlessly blends advanced technology with a roomy interior, creating a modern and inviting atmosphere. The large touchscreen and array of innovative features made navigating the vehicle a breeze. Inside, the iX offered a comfortable and spacious environment, perfect for both daily commutes and longer journeys. What really stood out to me was its impressive acceleration and the confidence of having a substantial electric range, minimizing the need for frequent charging stops. While the design might not be everyone's cup of tea, the BMW iX undeniably showcases the brand's commitment to pushing the boundaries of electric mobility. Overall, my experience with the iX was both enjoyable and eye-opening, highlighting the remarkable strides in the electric vehicle market.

          Nice experience with the superb car, this car is in fact a scratch into the premium car price and most good thing it is based upon the electric and no fuel consumption so it is a future car.
