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.
