Introducing the first purpose-built, all-electric BMW SUV - the iX!
Ok, we know what you’re all thinking. Yes, it’s an electric car. So no, it doesn’t need the grille at the front… But it’s there anyway! Let just remember though, when Mat saw this grille in person with the M3 & M4 he didn’t mind it so much, so maybe it’ll grow on you all too? We’ll have to wait and see...
So some of you may not like the design, but there’s one thing you can’t claim to be disappointed with - the performance! Thanks to its dual electric motors, the iX can put down 500hp - more than the new M3! Not only that, but it’ll also fly to 60mph in less than 5-seconds.
When it comes to range, the iX continues to sound pretty impressive, with BMW claiming it’ll take you 375 miles on a single charge. That’s over 100 miles MORE than the Audi e-tron & Mercedes EQC.
So what do you think - could the iX be THE must-have electric SUV of 2021? Or does the Model X still come in at #1? You’ll have to keep watching to find out!

How to kill your brand in one generation. Anyone apart of the other engineering teams must HATE the design team for ruining all the work they've done under the hood and in the cabin.

What the hell is BMW doing with these massive grills, it’s like the designer has some massive vagina complex. They seem to have lost the plot completely with this design throughout the new range of cars. I would be embarrassed to have that sitting on my driveway.

Audi and Mercedes look better...simply because they look like the actual / original fossil fuel model. The trend of tasteless futuristic design trying to make the point the car is...futuristic, to me is missing the point. At the time being, people are happy driving an electric car but not a weird looking one. To appeal to the masses and make electric cars an every day staple, you need design continuity with the old world (and government subsidies and a charging point network!).

How can they make a SUV that looks almost identical to almost every other SUV but still make it way uglier? That's clever. I think they may have thought "OK if we are mostly going to do generic and then we have to add something to make it different...."
