2022 BMW iX configurator for the US market is now open, prices start at USD 83,200The 2022 BMW iX xDrive50 has an active configurator for the US market. We didn't see the 2022 BMW iX xDrive40 model there though.

In the USA, the 2022 BMW iX xDrive50 starts at USD 83,200 for the Shadowline trim, which excludes destination & handling fee of $995, tax, title, license, and registration. The BMW i Signature Blue trim will set you back additional USD 300, while the Sport trim costs USD 2,800. There's a USD 2,300 Convenienve package with a Head-up Display, Video AR for navigation, Iconic Sounds Electric, Natural Interaction, Harman Kardon surround sound system, Surround View with 3D View, Parking Assistant Plus. The USD 4,000 Premium package includes everything in the Convenience package plus persona eSIM 5G, multi-functional seats, and an interior camera. For additional USD 3,400 you can get a Bowers & Wilking Diamond Surround Sound System instead of a Harman Kardon one.

The dual-motor 2022 BMW iX xDrive50 offers 385 kW (523 hp) and 630 km (391 mi) of WLTP range. The acceleration of 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is in 4.6 seconds. Combined torque peaks at 765 Nm (564 lb-ft) in the BMW iX xDrive50.

Fifth-generation BMW eDrive technology also includes a high-voltage battery with state-of-the-art battery cell technology. Its volumetric energy density at cell level is up by around 40 per cent compared to the high-voltage battery in the 2020 BMW i3. The 2022 BMW iX xDrive50 is fitted with a high-voltage battery with a net energy content of 105.2 kWh (gross energy content: 111.5 kWh).

The standard specification of the BMW iX includes an integrated heating and cooling system for the cabin, together with its high-voltage battery and a drive system that operates using an exceptionally efficient heat pump function. Anticipatory thermal management enables the high-voltage battery’s operating temperature to be optimised for quick and efficient charging prior to a scheduled stop at a fast-charging station.

The Combined Charging Unit (CCU) in the BMW iX has been designed to offer a very high level of charging flexibility. DC power can be taken on board at a rate of up to 200 kW (BMW iX xDrive50). This allows the battery's state of charge to be increased from 10 to 80 per cent in around 35 minutes in the BMW iX xDrive50.

The aluminium spaceframe construction and the Carbon Cage's use of carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) in the roof and at the sides and rear result in an intelligent material mix that increases rigidity at the same time as minimising weight. The optimised aerodynamic properties that contribute to the car’s drag coefficient of just 0.25 also have a positive impact on efficiency and range. The high-voltage battery located low down in the car’s underbody lowers the centre of gravity, combining with the even weight distribution to make handling more nimble.

The standard chassis technology for the BMW iX comprises a double-wishbone front axle, five-link rear axle, lift-related dampers and an electric steering system with Servotronic function and a variable ratio. Two-axle air suspension with electronically controlled dampers, Integral Active Steering and Sport brakes can all be found on the options list. As an alternative to the standard 20-inch light-alloy wheels, there is a choice of 21-inch and 22-inch Air Performance Wheels. These can be fitted with noise-reduced tyres, which have a layer of foam on their inner surface to improve acoustic comfort.

The new generation of the iDrive display and operating system making its debut in the BMW iX expands the interaction between driver and vehicle and turns it into a natural dialogue. It is based on the new BMW Operating System 8 and was designed with a clear focus on the touchscreen operation of the BMW Curved Display and on verbal communication with the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant, which has also undergone an extensive upgrade. The BMW Curved Display is a fully digital display grouping formed by a 12.3-inch information display and a control display with a screen diagonal of 14.9 inches housed together behind a glass surface that is angled towards the driver. The digital personal assistant now boasts additional capabilities and uses a new graphic when communicating with the vehicle’s occupants.

The BMW iX comes equipped with the most extensive set of standard driver assistance systems ever seen on a BMW along with a wealth of innovations. The front collision warning system, for instance, now detects oncoming traffic when turning left (in countries where vehicles drive on the right) as well as cyclists and pedestrians when turning right. Availability of the optional Steering and Lane Control Assistant has been significantly expanded, while the optional Active Cruise Control with Stop&Go function offers enhanced situational distance adjustment. The exit warning function, which alerts to the presence of cyclists or pedestrians in the surrounding area before the doors are opened, and the Remote Theft Recorder are both new features. Also to be found on the standard equipment list for the BMW iX is the Parking Assistant including Reversing Assist Camera and the Reversing Assistant.
