You’ve chosen your holiday destination, the suitcases are packed and your BMW iX with its purely electric range of more than 475 km (BMW AG predicted estimated range, based on WLTP methodology. Official EPA range test results are not currently available) is standing in your driveway ready for action. In order to get the optimum out of your electric car from the outset, you have already prepared the interior and the battery for the journey using the My BMW App* or the settings in the vehicle menu. Thanks to the “preconditioning” process, your domestic mains electricity is used to adjust the temperature of the interior and battery while the vehicle is still charging from your BMW Wallbox. The route ahead assistant and the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant help you to optimise and increase the range while driving. “Hey BMW. How can I increase my range?” Alongside external environmental factors such as the outside temperature, your personal driving style also affects the efficiency of the high-voltage battery in your vehicle and hence your available range. A generally anticipatory and uniform driving style allows you to extract the maximum from your battery. Once arrived at your charging stop, you unlock and charge your BMW iX easily and conveniently via your BMW Charging Access. At an IONITY high-power charging station, for example, you will have attained the charge level of 80% for optimum battery life after less than 40 minutes thanks to 200 kW charging power. Y You can now continue to your destination, completely free of exhaust fumes and local emissions. *European model shown. Electric range may vary based on driving habits and other factors.
