BMW iX: test, electric SUV, price, range, battery, interior
The iX drives like a Rolls-Royce Phantom
The interior matches this. Ultra-modern, finely arranged, plenty of (space) reserves – and the gigantic screen module is particularly impressive. Too bad: The operation, primarily via menus and the central touch screen, requires getting used to, understanding of the functions and a regular check on the tiles in the display. In short: this is hardly intuitive and distracts unnecessarily.
In terms of range, it fits the iX
At the back you sit on the main squares flat benches, also somehow slightly crooked, because from the outer side of the backrest into a twisted posture nudged. the Front seats could actually be even bigger, and they also seem a bit lost in the car. The typical BMW glove feeling, with which we always feel perfectly integrated into the car, unfortunately does not come about. But the upholstery of the multiple electrically adjustable front seats looks very comfortable and suitable for long distances. It has to be like that. Because, according to the factory, the iX can travel over 600 kilometers and, according to our calculations, still manages 415 kilometers.
The iX 50 needs on average 25.3 kWh per 100 kilometers. Just for the sake of completeness: With a “highly active” driving style – that is, at maximum acceleration and frequently regulated top of 200 km / h – the BMW sometimes pulls too much 30 kWh from the batteries. Incidentally, the sprint force decreases slightly, so the acceleration values (0-100 km / h) deteriorate by a few tenths after the third attempt. In other words: Whoever savored the over 500 PS should be within an operating range of less than 300 kilometers to calm down.
