The new BMW iX will take on the Tesla Model X. The American rival costs $95k for the Performance variant.
While there is no technical detail about the BMW iX yet but BMW mentioned that it will be available with different driving range options that vary between 400 to 600 km. Some reports say that there are going to be three different engine options with 308 hp, 522 hp, and 610 hp. The 308 hp model which is a base variant is a single motor car so it doesn't have any sort of AWD system but other models are dual-motor so they feature an AWD system.
