BMW is now offering its iX electric SUV in three variants in China. In addition to the iX xDrive 50, the iX M60 and iX xDrive 40 are now also going on sale there, making the full range of the large E-SUV available in the important Chinese market.
At the end of November - parallel to the start of deliveries in Europe - BMW offered the iX xDrive 50 in China at a base price of 846,900 yuan, the equivalent of 117,500 euros. The vehicle was presented for the first time in China at the Guangzhou Auto Show.
The iX xDrive 40 has a recommended retail price of 746,900 yuan (€103,600) and is scheduled for delivery before the end of January. Deliveries of the iX M60 in China will begin in the middle of this year at prices starting at 996,900 yuan, which is €138,300 and slightly more than in Germany, where the iXM60 starts at prices starting at €130,200. As the portal "CN EV Post" writes, this makes the iX range "about twice as expensive in China as SUVs from local luxury carmaker Nio".
In a first drive before the start of delivery, the drive technology of the iX xDrive 50 was quite convincing. BMW has also installed a number of new developments in the assistance systems in its technology flagship. The Munich company had officially presented the iX M60 only a few days ago at the CES in Las Vegas.
