Introduction

What Car? says...

The BMW iX you see here is unquestionably the most radical and technologically advanced BMW electric car since the i3 was revealed almost a decade ago. 

The i3, with its lightweight carbon-fibre construction and fancy rear-hinged back doors, showed that electric cars were more than just white goods – they could be lusted after. Yet it was perhaps ahead of its time, and wasn't the big hit many expected. 

The BMW iX won't have the luxury large electric SUV market all to itself, of course. Its main rivals are the Audi E-tron and Jaguar I-Pace but there's also the eye-wateringly expensive Tesla Model X to consider.

Over the next few pages of this review, we’ll let you know how it compares with those electric cars, as well as rating the iX in terms of performance, interior quality, running costs and other important factors.

Remember, when you've decided which make and model of car to buy, we could help you save thousands of pounds if you search our free What Car? New Car Buying service. It has lots of good large electric car deals.
