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.
