Not only is the 2022 model stunning to look at, but it also offers a road presence that will be unmatched. This electric SUV is poised to redefine the driving experience as we know it. The vision of the 2022 BMW iX i is turning into reality ahead of its expected U.S. market launch in early 2022. While the series development phase is ongoing, BMW is providing the first look ahead at the future BMW iX.
Starting with its completely newly developed design, the BMW iX is the first representative of a new generation of cars and the first model that is based on a modular, scalable architecture on which will be the future of BMW. Conceived from the outset as purely electric mobility, the iX sees BMW redefining the successful Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) concept.
The BMW iX has been created to provide something beyond just mobility by offering an exhilarating driving experience combined with a sense of wellbeing for both drivers and passengers all the while enjoying the journey with safety, security, and a new form of luxury in the process.
“The BMW Group is constantly striving to re-invent itself. That is a central element of our corporate strategy,” says Oliver Zipse, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG. “The BMW iX expresses this approach in an extremely concentrated form.
From the eye-catching front-end design and the signature BMW visuals including the distinctive BMW kidney grille framed with the twin headlights this newly interpreted SUV is a futuristic show stopper. Since the electric drive system of the BMW iX requires only a small amount of cooling air, the kidney grille is completely closed off. Its role has turned digital and here it functions as an intelligence panel. Camera technology, radar functions, and other sensors are integrated seamlessly into the grille behind a transparent surface. The heating elements and cleaning system for the sensors are also embedded in the grille.
Inside there is a crazy amount of room, a top-quality selection of materials, newly developed seating and the extraordinary expanse of the single-piece panoramic glass roof combine to immerse all five seats inside the BMW iX in a luxurious lounge-style ambiance. The all-new architecture of the BMW iX cabin underpins a straightforward functionality that revolves entirely around the needs and of the driver and fellow occupants.
The eDrive concept means there is no center tunnel, adding to the open, airy feel while allowing extra front and rear legroom, sufficient space for storage, and a center console crafted to look like a high-quality piece of furniture
“We designed the BMW iX from the inside out,” says Domagoj Dukec, Vice President BMW Design. “In the process, we took particular care to create a modern, warm, and minimalist interior design with a very spacious feel.”
