2022 BMW iX price and specs

BMW has expanded its radical iX electric SUV range wth the addition of a flagship M60 variant, with a staggering 1100Nm of torque.

Published

BMW has detailed Australian pricing and specification for the flagship iX M60 electric SUV, designed to compete with the Audi e-tron S, Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV, and Tesla Model X.

Set to arrive locally from mid-2022, the 2022 BMW iX M60 is priced from $222,900 before on-road costs.

The rest of the BMW iX range is unchanged in terms of pricing and standard specification following its arrival in the fourth quarter of 2021. The four-variant iX range starts at $135,900 before on-road costs.

The 2022 BMW iX M60 is powered by a dual-motor all-wheel drive setup that produces 455kW of power and 1100Nm of torque. BMW claims the iX M60 can do the 0-100km/h sprint in 3.8 seconds and has a top speed of 250km/h.

The launch of the BMW iX M60 coincides with BMW M’s 50-year anniversary and follows the launch of the all-electric i4 M50 in March 2022.

The iX uses aluminium spaceframe construction and carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) on the roof, rear and sides.

The new BMW Curved Display which puts the digital instrument cluster and infotainment touchscreen in one housing is standard across the range. This is populating throughout the larger BMW range.

The touchscreen uses the latest generation of iDrive running BMW OS 8.0 and the navigation system features augmented reality and cloud-based maps.

There’s also a specially composed drive sound composed by Hans Zimmer, while the interior makes extensive use of recycled and natural materials. These include floor coverings made from recycled fishing nets and leather tanned with olive leaf extracts.
