[VIDEO] Joe Achilles’ review on the BMW iX xDrive50

Since the introduction of the i3, the BMW iX xDrive50 has been one of BMW’s most significant cars. It is not the only first electric drive developed from scratch by BMW since the i3. The BMW iX also competes in the mid-size luxury SUV category, one of the most competitive areas of the industry. The iX could be a big hit with BMW customers, with a price close to that of the X5 and a range big enough to compete with Tesla. But it could also be a flop. In this new video, Joe Achilles discusses his thoughts on the new EV BMW.

Achilles does not hesitate to express his dislike of electric cars. While he does not seem to despise them, he prefers internal combustion engines to electricity and is not sure that electric cars are practical in everyday life. Especially in many regions of the UK. So what does he think of the BMW iX?

BMW designed the iX with its EV architecture as a pure electric vehicle. Its chassis is made of high-strength steel and carbon fibre. In addition, each of its axles has BMW’s two latest eDrive electric motors, making it an all-wheel drive vehicle. BMW has also fitted the company’s largest batteries. The BMW iX xDrive50 is the top of the range iX currently on the market (until the iX M60 arrives) and features a 105 kWh battery pack with a range of slightly over 300 miles.

Moreover, it is the strongest iX on the market. But remember, once the M60 hits the market, it will surpass the iX xDrive50 with 516 hp and 564 lb-ft of torque. BMW quotes 0 to 100 km/h acceleration in about four and a half seconds, but in reality, it will probably be even faster.

Watch the video to find out what Joe Achilles thinks about the BMW iX. He has certain features he admires, but also those he does not like.
