The first-ever all-electric BMW iX1 has been launched in India at Rs 66.90 lakh (ex-showroom). The iX1 is BMW i’s take on the X1.

The BMW iX1 is based on its combustion sibling, the X1 generation U11, sharing its platform while bringing in a few aesthetic differences. The signature kidney grille, bumpers, and side-skirts receive blue accents, and the logo with a blue surround. These are the easiest ways to tell the electric version apart from its internal-combustion sibling.

In the cabin of the BMW iX1, In addition to its 10.7-inch touchscreen, this iX1 is also expected to feature BMW’s Curved Display touchscreen and information unit. It could also be offered with a panoramic sunroof and massage seats up front.

The model expected to arrive here is the BMW iX1 xDrive30. This version draws power from a 66.5-kWh lithium-ion battery that offers a 130-kW DC fast charge capability. The BMW iX1’s twin motors generate a combined 230 kW (313 hp) and 494 Nm of torque, propelling it from 0-100 km/h in a claimed 5.6 seconds with a top speed of 180 km/h. The WLTP-rated range for this spec is up to 440 km with a claimed overall efficiency of between 5.52 and 5.95 km/kWh.

We expect the BMW iX1 to be priced in the region of Rs 60 and 65 lakh (ex-showroom). It will go up against the likes of the Volvo XC40 Recharge and Kia EV6 GT-Line AWD, among others.

BMW recently revealed the two-wheel drive version, the iX1 eDrive20, at the IAA in Munich. However, that is not particularly likely to arrive here anytime soon. BMW India’s other all-electric offerings at present include the i4 eDrive40 four-door coupé, the i7 xDrive60 premium luxury saloon, and the iX xDrive40 luxury electric SUV.
