The BMW iX is ready for series production and is due to arrive on the world’s roads from November 2021. The BMW Group’s new technology flagship combines locally emission-free driving pleasure, sporting agility and a compelling operating range with a character profile dedicated squarely to sustainability. With its trailblazing design and an interior devoted to luxurious spaciousness, the BMW iX embodies a fresh new take on the Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) concept. Conceived from the outset for purely electric mobility, this model is based on a new toolkit for the future, whose vast potential for innovations in the areas of automated driving, operation, connectivity and digital services translates into a premium mobility experience unparalleled in this segment.
The BMW iX - Outstanding efficiency and long range thanks to fifth generation BMW eDrive technology
Maximum efficiency is guaranteed by the fifth generation of BMW eDrive technology, which includes the two electric motors, power electronics, charging technology and high-voltage storage. According to the latest calculations, the drive developed by the BMW Group and manufactured in a sustainable production process without the use of critical raw materials from the so-called rare earths, will generate a maximum output of more than 370 kW/500 hp and accelerate the BMW iX from zero to 100 km/h in less than 5.0 seconds. The clear objective is to achieve a combined power consumption of less than 21 kWh per 100 kilometers in the WLTP test cycle, which is outstandingly low in the competitive environment. With a gross energy content of more than 100 kWh, the latest generation high-voltage storage system is expected to have a range of more than 600 kilometers in the WLTP cycle. This corresponds to more than 300 miles according to EPA test cycle FTP-75.
The new KAROQ is characterised by ŠKODA’s updated emotive design language featuring crystalline elements. New design details include the wider, now hexagonal ŠKODA grille, restyled front and rear aprons, as well as slimmer and sharper LED headlights and tail lights. The daytime running lights are now split in two, and for the first time, the KAROQ can be equipped with full-LED Matrix headlights as an option. Aerodynamics have been improved by more than 9%, meaning that the SUV now boasts a drag coefficient (cd) of 0.30 and correspondingly lower CO2 emissions. This has been made possible, for example, by new alloy wheels with Aero inserts, a longer rear spoiler, side finlets on the rear window and the now covered underbody. An increased range of state-of-the-art assistance and safety systems ensures even higher levels of active and passive safety.
