SAV stands for Sports Activity Vehicle.
BMW has just unveiled the new iX xDrive50 for the United States as an all-electric SAV. This new model’s electric powertrain is poised to produce 516 horsepower, with torque not being stated as of yet. This power is good enough for the iX xDrive50 to sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 4.6 seconds. Because we’re talking about electric luxury cars, the two most important factors to many are range and charge time. As for range, BMW states that the iX has an estimated range of around 300 miles. When it comes to charging, 0 to 80 percent can happen in 40 minutes with a 200 kWh charger. With the standard charging rate of 11 kW, however, a recharge from 0 to 100 percent will take under 11 hours.
The new BMW iX xDrive50 will come with a price of $82,300, not including the $995 destination fee and first deliveries are expect in the beginning of 2022. BMW also notes that a new and more powerful iX M60 model with over 600 hp is planned for the future.
