First-ever BMW iX to launch Down Under in second half of 2021

The progressive all-electric BMW iX will launch in New Zealand in the second half of 2021.

The new model, which is inspired by the BMW Vision iNEXT, has been conceived from the outset for purely electric mobility and sees BMW redefine the brand’s successful Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) concept.


With its newly developed precise and minimalist design, the BMW iX is the first representative of a trailblazing generation of vehicles poised to redefine the driving experience, the feeling of space inside and the relationship between vehicles and those on board.


The BMW iX harnesses the latest innovations in the fields of electrification, automated driving and connectivity to deliver a mobility experience that puts people at its heart more than ever before.


Its design has been developed from the inside out. The BMW iX has been created to provide quality of life and wellbeing for drivers and passengers. The clear and minimalist design of its exterior showcases a new form of mobility geared squarely to the needs of the vehicle’s occupants.


Its interior offers occupants innovative options for using the time during a journey while enjoying relaxation, safety, security and a new form of luxury in the process.

DC fast charging: more than 120 kilometres of extra range in 10 minutes

The new charging technology of the BMW iX enables DC fast charging at up to 200kW. In this way, the battery can be charged from 10 to 80 per cent of its full capacity in less than 40 minutes. Added to which, within ten minutes enough energy can be fed into the battery to increase the vehicle’s range by more than 120 kilometres. It takes less than 11 hours to charge the high-voltage battery from 0 to 100 per cent at 11kW from a BMW i Wallbox.


EV’s are just getting better and better and this iX looks awesome – roll on 2021!
