The BMW iX1 represents a major milestone in the luxury electric vehicle market. It blend the brand's iconic design language with cutting-edge technology. The model provides a familiar yet innovative experience for eco-conscious drivers. As BMW's entry-level EV, it competes with premium rivals such as the Mercedes EQA, Audi Q4 e-tron, and Volvo XC40 Recharge.

The BMW i3 was a standalone electric model. Unlike its predecessor, , the iX1 has been developed to essentially be an electrified version of the already popular BMW X1 SUV. This makes the iX1 is the ideal choice for those looking to make the transition from electric from petrol or diesel vehicles.

While it offers an exterior design that is enough to catch the eye, the model’s interior elevates its overall appeal. The cabin exudes a premium feel throughout, featuring an infotainment setup that rivals those found in BMW's flagship models. The vehicle provides ample space for families and has a boot that is almost as large as the regular BMW X1. The placement of batteries under the floor also allows for a higher seating position, a feature that SUV drivers have come to expect.

While the iX1 faces competition from various other electric SUVs, its blend of subtle design, premium interior, and impressive performance make it one of the most desirable options in its class.

BMW iX1 updates and facelifts

The BMW iX1 was introduced as an all-electric iteration of the popular X1 SUV in 2022. In autumn 2023 a new entry-level variant – the xDrive20 – went on sale. With a single electric motor, it offers a range of up to 296 miles and can accelerate from 0–62mph in 8.6 seconds.

Practicality and style of the car

The BMW iX1 boasts an impressive 490-litre boot capacity. This outclasses competitors like the Mercedes EQA and the Volvo XC40 Recharge. This generous space makes it a practical choice for families and individuals alike, offering ample room for shopping, school bags, holiday luggage or even outdoor gear. The boot also features a convenient underfloor compartment, perfect for storing a charging cable or other small items.

The iX1 rear seats feature a 40:20:40-split design that can be folded down to expand the luggage capacity to a cavernous 1,495 litres. While the seats don't fold completely flat, they do provide a substantial amount of space for transporting large items. The boot area also has a low lip, making it easier to load heavy or bulky items, making the BMW iX1 the ultimate combination of style and practicality.

Running costs

The BMW iX1 is exempt from road tax as well as the London Congestion Charge until 2025, resulting in significant savings for those who frequently drive in the city or are looking to reduce their annual motoring expenses. Insurance-wise, the iX1 falls into group 37 out of 50 if you opt for the base xLine model. If you're eyeing the sportier M Sport variants, these land in insurance group 38. Premiums are comparable to those of other electric SUVs in the market, including the dual-motor versions of the Audi Q4 e-tron and the Volvo XC40 Recharge.
