BMW were pioneers in the electric market when they released the i3 back in 2013. Now, joining an already impressive electric fleet, the iX1 is a welcome addition, providing a compact crossover that’s ideal for people living in metropolitan areas. Distinctive BMW styling with blue accents on the outside showcase its electric roots and make for a sleek exterior, with impressive tech and top comfort inside - it's a great experience both for driver and passenger.


The standout feature inside the iX1 is the curved display, combining all the info you need in one easy-to-see place; like your speed, range and journey directions. Plus, you’ll be able to sync it up with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto - an added bonus. Although compact, storage isn’t an issue in the iX1 - a large boot with a folding floor gives you plenty of room for your shopping or luggage for a trip away.

What is your estimated range based on?

We take real world range from EV database, which combines the predicted range of an EV in cold weather with the predicted range of an EV driving in warm weather.

For cold weather, this assumes it’s -10 degrees celsius with heating on. For warmer weather, it’s based on 23 degrees celsius and there’s no A/C on.

Predicting exact range is tricky, and range will depend on speed, style of driving, weather conditions and route conditions.

What affects EV range?

Many things can impact the range you get in your EV, there are outside factors and ones you can control or mitigate. Temperature (both of the car and outside environment), your driving style, weather, the surfaces you drive on and the spec of your car can all make a difference to your actual range.
