TEST STRENGTH AND ENDURANCE.
The cold temperatures and wintery road conditions were perfect for testing the electric motors, electric all-wheel-drive technology, high-voltage battery, power electronics and charging technology.
The new BMW iX1 comes with fifth-generation BMW eDrive technology and uses the latest battery cell technology. Combined with intelligently controlled heat management, this enable short charging times and a long range, even in extreme sub-zero temperatures.
With two electric motors (one at the front axle and one at the rear), whose power delivery is coordinated precisely to optimise traction and dynamic performance, and its extremely fast-acting near-actuator wheel slip limitation tech, the BMW iX1 is perfectly equipped to provide assured progress over any terrain.
