BMW IX XDrive50 2022. BMW unveiled the iX electric crossover at the end of last year, but it was only a partial revelation.

We need to see the electric car from all angles, ponder some preliminary specifications and explore some technical details.

Today we learn about the iX’s final production specifications and countless other details.

We’ll start with the important, final power numbers. The IX launches on the xDrive50 spec in the US only, giving it standard all-wheel drive.

Power is 516 horsepower and 564 lb-ft of torque paired with two electric motors. Its rear engine is stronger than the front one, maximum power is 335 horsepower, while the front engine power is 268 horsepower.

BMW today announced that the iX M60 «with over 600 hp» will be the first electric crossover M. Dates for this model are not yet available.

The standard xDrive50 model does 0-60 mph in just 4.6 seconds, so expect the M60 to be closer to 4.0 seconds or less. BMW prefers to use a single-speed gearbox as opposed to the Porsche Taycan’s two-speed gearbox.

BMW has tested charging speeds and range at a superficial level before, but today there is a lot to learn. There is only one battery option available.

It’s a 111.5 kWh battery pack, but BMW limits it to 106.3 kWh. This practice of limiting the battery charge to its maximum capacity is common among electric vehicles.

There is still no official EPA-estimated range available, but BMW continues to claim a «close to 300 miles» range when fully charged.

Plug the iX into a DC fast charger and it will take 40 minutes to charge from 10% to 80%. In practical terms, powering the iX at a 200 kW charge rate will extend the range by 90 miles in 10 minutes if you start with 10% charge.

BMW is making EVgo its public charging infrastructure partner, offering smoother charging for iX owners and a $ 100 free charge to get you started.

Also in the news today are details of suspension and chassis technologies. BMW uses «lift dampers» as standard suspension.

Additional hydraulic shock absorbers are built into the shock absorbers, which can adjust the stiffness in accordance with the changing suspension travel.

When the suspension is raised high, the second piston is lowered into the inner sleeve. BMW says this technology ultimately results in less body sinking on large bumps and a higher level of comfort on minor road imperfections.

You can also forget about the aforementioned and optional BMW Adaptive Air Suspension, which includes electronically controlled dampers and adjustable suspension height settings.

The damping of these shock absorbers is constantly adjusted, as is the case with other electronically controlled BMW adaptive suspensions.

No maximum ground clearance is specified, but the iX can be raised 0.8 «on command, or lowered 0.4» in Sport mode. The IX automatically drops to its lowest ground clearance at speeds from 87 mph to a top speed of 124 mph.

BMW says it is using a new steering gear (debuted in the iX) for its standard variable ratio steering rack. However, the company can also purchase an optional Integral Active Steering system, which adds rear-wheel steering to the mix.

The rear wheels can be steered against the front wheels to increase cornering maneuverability / reduce turning radius when parking, and they can also be steered by the front wheels to provide greater stability at speeds.

The iX will feature a new electric all-wheel drive system that is fully variable and can split torque into either rear-wheel drive for maximum efficiency or all-wheel drive for maximum traction.

The traction control system, developed for the new BMW electric vehicles, is also equipped with wheel slip limiting technology.

This TCS system is integrated into the engine management system to eliminate any signal delay for faster and more accurate application of correction signals between the front and rear wheels.

The Wired Braking System allows you to select your preferred brake pedal mode. BMW says that single-pedal driving will be possible, but there is also a coasting option and combination that is likely to come closest to the braking feel of traditional gasoline vehicles.

The brakes are hidden behind standard 20-inch alloy wheels with an air hub.

You can upgrade to optional 21-inch or 22-inch options, which BMW calls Air Performance wheels — BMW claims they are about 15% lighter than regular alloy wheels.

These extra wheels are also fitted with special tires designed specifically for the iX to reduce tire noise as it is an electric vehicle.

Finally, BMW has revealed the starting price of the iX xDrive50. It starts at $ 84,195. BMW says the first iX should arrive in the first quarter of 2022.
