With two motors, this SUV delivers a combined output of 313 hp and a strong torque of 494 Nm, allowing it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.6 seconds. The iX1 has an impressive claimed range of 440 km and a top speed of 180 km/h.

The price of iX1 is expected to fall in the range of Rs. 60-65 lakh, possibly making it the most accessible electric BMW in India. In this price segment, it is set to compete with the Volvo XC40 Recharge, which is priced at Rs. 56.9 lakh.
