With its robust appearance and functional versatility, the new BMW X1 embodies an authentic experience of freedom and independence in day-to-day driving and on longer journeys. The interior’s progressive design and sophisticated ambience, and the much broader selection of standard equipment compared to the outgoing model, serve to underline its deeply embedded premium character. At launch in October 2022, there will initially be a choice of two petrol and two diesel engines. These will link up with a seven-speed Steptronic transmission with double clutch as standard, and their drive power will be channelled to the road via either the front wheels or the BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system, depending on the model. This starting quartet will immediately be followed by the all-electric BMW iX1 xDrive30 as well as by a pair of plug-in hybrid models and another two conventionally powered variants with 48V mild hybrid technology. The new BMW X1 will be built at BMW Group Plant Regensburg, where models with combustion engines, plug-in hybrid systems and all-electric drive will all roll off a single assembly line for the first time. The BMW iX1 will bring the experience of locally emission-free driving pleasure to a vehicle segment enjoying worldwide growth, making it accessible to a very wide target audience. The compact SAV powered by the latest BMW eDrive technology will therefore give a major boost to the accelerated ramp-up of electric mobility. The improvements in sustainability compared to the predecessor model can be partly attributed not just to the wide-ranging electrification measures, but also the increased use of green energy, both for production and in the supply chain, and the greater quantities of secondary raw materials and natural materials used.
The Mercedes-Benz EQV - Convenient charging
"As standard, the EQV can handle both alternating current (AC) charging at home or at public charging stations with up to 11 kW and direct current (DC) charging at rapid charging stations with up to 110 kW. Thanks to the rapid charging function, cab or shuttle drivers, for example, can recharge between tours or during vehicle preparation again and again without any loss of time. It is also possible to define at which battery charge level the vehicle will suggest the next charging stop or with which remaining range you want to arrive at your destination. Mercedes me Charge provides access to public charging stations of more than 300 operators including the IONITY fast charging stations. Before the start of charging, the registered customer identifies himself via MBUX, via Mercedes me App or with the Mercedes me Charge charging card - everything else, including the payment process, is automatically regulated".
