The launch draws near and now we have an estimated timeline.
The BMW iX1 is the latest addition to BMW’s growing line of electric vehicles. We believe that its launch date is approaching, as its prototype has been spotted a number of times in various locations, most recently at an Ikea parking lot. BMW has now formally teased the car, along with key facts such as its expected range.
Although we’ve seen an iX1 prototype in the wild for over a year, this is the first time BMW has produced a teaser for the model. “The large and compact BMW iX1 impresses with dynamic performance values and a long range,” according to the official statement.
According to the teaser image, the iX1 will borrow design elements from the larger BMW iX3. The iX1 will have a closed-off grille and blue highlights, which are standard on electric BMW automobiles. The headlights are also from the iX3, although they’ve been scaled down.
According to WLTP standards, the iX1 will have an electric range of 413-438 kilometres (257-272 miles), according to BMW’s official release. The expected figures, according to BMW, are based on the vehicle’s current development status.
Take note, however, that the WLTP range ratings are significantly higher than the EPA regulations, which are the ones in use in the United States.
The all-new iX1 electric crossover will follow “shortly after the market introduction” of the BMW X1. A plug-in hybrid electric version of the next-generation X1 will also be available.

BMW has been intensively testing the X1; last month, the sportier X1 M35i model was photographed with four exhaust tips. It is slated to arrive this year, with sales beginning in the second half of 2022. However, no specific dates have been released as of yet.
