BMW iX1 runs wintertime tests on new official photos
The third generation of the BMW X1 SUV will reach the market this fall, and the Bavarian automaker has just posted images of multiple test cars being driven in Arjeplog, Sweden.
The test fleet included hybrids, ICE cars and a single battery-powered iX1. The camo was as thick as ever, making closer examination a problem. Still, if the latest iX3 is any indication, the all-electric 1-Series SUV will sport a unique faux grille and light blue exterior accents.
BMW confirmed earlier that the iX1 would offer up to 438 kilometers (272 miles) of driving range by European standards. This sounds quite competitive, especially considering that the Mercedes-Benz EQA only gets between 400 and 432 km (248 – 268 miles) of range from a full charge.
It is also known that the crossover SUV will offer dual motors mounted one per axle, but whether this configuration will be standard or restricted to the top spec remains to be revealed. All power and torque numbers have been kept secret so far, too.
