The BMW iX is a battery-electric mid-size luxury crossover SUV manufactured and marketed by the German automobile manufacturer BMW. It was unveiled in concept form named Vision iNext at the 2018 Paris Motor Show, and then as fully production-ready in November 2020. The iX (I20) is the first purpose-built electric vehicle by BMW since the i3 from 2013, and the fourth BMW i sub-brand model. The iX nameplate was chosen to signify the model’s position at the top of the electric i line-up and its role in showcasing technology. The BMW iX is built around the CLAR version of BMW’s fifth-generation electric drivetrain architecture and an aluminum spaceframe. The body is made out of a combination of high-strength steel, aluminium, thermoplastics and carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) to keep weight as low as possible.
