2023 BMW iX1 – BMW is very busy when it comes to the production of electric vehicles. According to reports, the German company will unveil a few new models during the coming events, including the brand new 2023 BMW iX1 compact electric SUV, as well as the i7 electric flagship sedan. The battery-powered iX1 is scheduled to be launched in the coming months and will sport an extremely contemporary style. The teaser render of the new model showcases a similar style reference to the recently announced BMW iX3. The coming iX1 has a similar kidney grille, which is sealed off with blue surrounds, as well as extremely attractive bumper accents in the same style and color for the headlights. It is likely that the model teased is likely to come with the BMW M Sport package.
2023 BMW iX1 Redesign
The 3rd Generation of the BMW X1 will arrive this year and will be based on the flexible FAAR Multi-energy Platform. From what we can discern, the platform is built to be compatible with plug-in hybrids, internal combustion engines, and all-electric models. We also learned that the next-gen X1 may be much larger than the model currently in use which means it could likely be similar to the length of the X3 which is 4.70 meters, or 185.0 in. The teasers were released recently to showcase the upcoming SUV sporting an appealing design and headlights with twin eyes. We also saw huge and C-shaped air inlets on the side under the headlamps. The brand new kidney grille, which is closed off, is adorned with blue accents too which gives the SUV an aggressive look.
Similar to the BMW X1, the new iX1 model will come with an ultra-modern and comfortable interior. Luckily, the inside spy shots are accessible and show an elongated Curved Display and an AC vent beneath the display’s central area. It’s quite odd, given that the majority of BMWs generally have two smaller vents for air conditioning. Additionally, the new iX1 has more sophisticated screens and a HUD, as compared to those of the iX3 model.
The manufacturer hasn’t revealed any details about its 2023 BMW iX1 engine. According to our knowledge, the new SUV will be powered by batteries. It will also come with an entirely new platform. The only thing that was officially provided by BMW has been that the iX1 is anticipated to have a distance of 257 to 272 miles (413-438 km). Therefore, we anticipate that the BMW iX1 to feature the same 400-volt system that is used in the present electric Bimmers. BMW Group is also working on a new battery system that is 800 volts to be introduced in 2025 models.

The new electric battery 2023 BMW IX1 will be revealed in the coming months. We’re anticipating that this model will launch in Q1 2023 (January-March 2023), with a modular FAAR multi-energy platform. The platform, as we mentioned is built to be compatible with plug-in hybrids, internal combustion engines, and even all-electric. The cost of the iX1 is anticipated to be at least EUR 54,000, or perhaps more on the European market. There are no plans to introduce it as an iX1 within the United States. Tesla Model Y, Volvo XC40 Recharge as well as the Mercedes EQB are the closest contenders to the brand new iX1 model.
