The small series of the iX5 Hydrogen will come in 2022
Oliver Zipse, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG, believes in hydrogen: “It will also become significantly more relevant in individual mobility. For us, hydrogen-powered vehicles are the ideal technology to sensibly supplement battery-electric vehicles and complete electromobility.”
However, it is not enough for a large series. At least not yet. First of all, the iX5 Hydrogen will be tested worldwide from the end of 2022 in a small series of around 100 vehicles that will not be officially sold. But it seems as if BMW has opted for hydrogen and the fuel cell as an additional drive concept for the future. Zipse also confirms this: “With today’s start of production of the small series of fuel cells, we are showing the maturity of this type of drive and are thus underlining its potential for the future.” And in the future, an iX5 could possibly also be offered in large series, but probably not before 2025.
