BMW has revealed a new all-electric SUV called the iX. It is scheduled to go into production next year.

The BMW iX is based on an all-new aluminium spaceframe and is about the same size as the BMW X5.

The conventional twin headlamps have been replaced with slim LED units. Similarly, it has a unique rear fascia with slim LED tail lights.

The futuristic styling continues on the inside. The interior is wrapped in blue and black upholstery. The minimalistic dashboard features a wide dual-screen setup similar to what to get in modern Mercedes models. It houses a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 14.9-inch touchscreen infotainment. The iX gets a unique hexagonal steering wheel.

The BMW iX is powered the fifth generation all-electric platform. It uses two electric motors that have a combined output of 503 BHP. BMW claims that the SUV can do 0-100 km/h in 5 seconds. The battery pack is said to offer a maximum range of 600 km on single charge (WLTP cycle). It can be recharged up to 10% to 80% in 40 minutes using a 200 kW fast charger. Users can top up the range by 120 km within 10 minutes using a fast charger.
