2023 BMW IX xDrive50: Anything but Conventional
The 2023 BMW iX xDrive50 is one of two new electric Bimmers hitting the road this year.
The electric SUV comes standard with dual electric motors outputting a combined 516 horsepower.
The EPA estimates up to 324 miles of range between charges, depending on the equipped wheel size.
At a powerful enough station, the iX is able to pull up to 195 kW. That's enough juice to add about 90 miles of range in just 10 minutes.
One of the most interesting features is the self-healing polymer grille. Rock chips and small scratches will disappear after a warm day in the sun.
But the grille's design is still quite polarizing.
The liftback looks awkward when opened, but it exposes a wide and low aperture for loading bulky items.
Fortunately, the iX looks much better on the inside. The minimalist cabin makes excellent use of attractive and interesting tactile materials.
This example features the optional cut glass controls and capacitive wood veneer on the center console.
