BMW iX1 Powertrain Details
Unlike the India-spec X1 that is only offered with a 2WD drivetrain, the iX1 gets all-wheel-drive as standard thanks to its twin electric motor setup. The combined power and torque output of the twin electric motors, which are mounted at each axle, stand at 313PS and 494Nm, respectively. The iX1 can do a 0-100kmph sprint in 5.6 seconds.
The electric motors draw power from a 64.7kWh battery pack that sits under the floor of the SUV. The iX1 offers a WLTP-certified range of 440km on a single charge. Since the ARAI testing standards are comparatively lenient compared to WLTP cycle, the ARAI-certified range of the iX1 could cross the 600km range mark. The BMW iX1 is capable of charging its batteries from 0-80% in just 29 minutes with the help of a 130kW DC fast charger. The more-accessible 11kW AC wallbox charger, on the other hand, takes 6.3 hours for a 0-100 percent charge.
