Following the opening of the registration of interest page last month, BMW Group Malaysia has launched the BMW iX1, priced at RM286k.
Only one variant is available for the all-electric version of the X1, the iX1 xDrive30 M Sport. The MSRP price of RM285,800 is inclusive of the BMW Service and Repair and is on the road price without insurance.
The BMW iX1 features a maximum output of 313 hp and 494Nm of torque as well as a driving range of up to 440 kilometres (WLTP). The electric all-wheel SUV accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in just 5.6 seconds, and the top speed is electronically limited at 180km/h.
It has a high-power charging rate of up to 130 kW, which helps reduces downtime by bringing the vehicle from 10% to 80% charge in just 29 minutes. The compact EV SUV also offers a myriad of charging possibilities by arriving standard with the Flexible Fast Charger as well as a Mode 3 charging cable – for AC charging at up to 11 kW.
According to BMW, the iX1 impresses with its excellent driving performance, superb handling, long range and fast charging times – making the compact all-electric SAV a remarkable all-rounder for everyday mobility.
Arriving in an M Sport variant, the iX1 comes with eye candy appeal. The kidney grille surround in Chrome, kidney grille front slats in satinated Aluminium helps gives off a distinctive design.
Other variant-exclusive highlights include the M high-gloss Shadowline, M designation on both sides and 19-inch M light alloy wheels in Double-spoke style 871M Bicolour.
The inside is perhaps where it is different from the rest of the iX lineup, featuring a two-level central console with switch/sliding controls.
Sitting atop the Luxury instrument panel is the new, sophisticated display configuration featuring a 10.25-inch instrument cluster and 10.7-inch control display, running the BMW Operating System 8 and fitted with the BMW Live Cockpit Professional as standard.
Sport seats arrive as standard for the driver and front passenger, along with a host of functionalities for added comfort and convenience, such as electric adjustment with memory function for the driver.
