BMW may launch iX and i4 electric cars in India by next year
BMW is planning to launch 25 electric vehicles globally by 2023. However, till now the company was not looking too serious about the Indian electric vehicle market. Now, a senior BMW executive has revealed that the company is planning to launch two of its electric cars in India by the year 2022. These will be the BMW iX and BMW i4 electric cars, but the company says that the launch will be held only at the right time. Coming to the global market, BMW currently has a number of electric cars in its portfolio.
Speaking to ET Auto, Vikram Pawah, President, BMW Group India said that the company is already manufacturing vehicles in India. He told that BMW will invest in India, but the company will first wait for the demand for electric vehicles to increase and then bring the latest technology. Pava also revealed that the company is planning to bring BMW iX and i4 electric cars.
BMW iX electric car travels 482 km on a single charge
The BMW iX is based on an all-new aluminum spaceframe and its powertrain is mated to two electric motors that generate a maximum output of 503 bhp. The company claims that its battery pack can give a maximum range of 480 km on a single charge. Not only this, the impressive thing is that it takes only 40 minutes to charge this battery pack from 10% to 80% with a 200 kW fast charger. In this way, this electric car can cover a distance of 120 km with a charge of 10 minutes, as claimed.
BMW i4 will get a range of 588 km
On the other hand, the electric motor present in the BMW i4 generates a maximum power of 523 bhp and the battery pack present in it gives a range of 587 km on a single charge.
Mercedes-Benz, Audi, and Jaguar currently have electric cars from all three luxury brands in India. Certainly, BMW’s upcoming electric car will compete with the electric cars of all these brands. However, the price will be the biggest game here.
