The all-new BMW X1 & the first-ever BMW iX1.
Featuring a new distinctive design, a high level of electrification across the range and the latest in connectivity, the new BMW X1 builds on the concept of a Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) for the premium compact segment.
An expanded standard specification, increased interior spaciousness with a premium ambience, new BMW Operating System 8 and BMW Curved Display, and a large selection of automated driving and parking systems ensure the new BMW X1 stands out against its rivals.
In its third model generation, the BMW X1 offers fully electric driving for the first time with the new BMW iX1 xDrive30, the BMW Group’s first premium compact model based on a flexible vehicle architecture to feature an all-electric drive system.. Alongside this new addition, the new BMW X1 will be available with one petrol engine and two diesel engine options. A pair of plug-in hybrid models will also join the range shortly after launch.
Offered in a choice of five models – Sport Premier, xLine Premier, xLine Premier Pro, M Sport Premier, and M Sport Premier Pro – the new BMW X1 will be available to order now, priced from £35,130 RRP.
Increased proportions set-off by striking new front end design. At the centre of the new larger BMW X1 of the new front end design stands the large, almost square BMW kidney grille, its contouring highlighted by the three-dimensional chrome surround. The grille bars are finished in Black high-gloss as standard. In the outer areas of the lower air intake, large chrome strips accentuate the classy design of the front end. The new BMW X1 comes as standard with slim LED headlights for low and high beam that extend into the sides of the car. A distinctive graphic splits the headlights into three units for the low beam, high beam and daytime driving lights, the latter including the indicators.
Dynamically stretched silhouette, powerful rear section. Crisply sculpted surfaces for the wheel arches, doors and shoulders of the body generate an expressive interplay of light and shadow. A dynamically rising character line connects the front and rear wheel arches, while the long roofline flows into a spoiler extending out to the rear. Together with the shoulder-line above the flush door openers, extending from the front wheel arches into the rear lights, this gives the silhouette a stretched feel. At the rear, horizontal lines, the narrow rear window and flared wheel arches emphasise the body’s width. Chrome side details and a prominent underride protection element in the rear apron reprise styling cues from the front end. All functions of the rear lights work using LED technology as standard. If the Adaptive LED Headlights are specified, the rear lights also illuminate in a striking “L” shape. These optional rear lights are also recognisable from the distinctive patterning in the sections extending into the sides of the body.
Customers can choose from two solid and eight metallic paint finishes for the new BMW X1, as well as a Frozen paint option with shimmering matt surface from BMW Individual, not to mention a wide variety of BMW Individual special paint finishes.
Introducing the BMW iX1: the first pure-electric compact SAV. The all-electric BMW iX1 xDrive30 is powered by one electric motor at the front axle and another at the rear, each combined with power electronics and transmission in a single, compact housing to deliver a combined output of up to 313hp and overall torque of 494Nm.
The fifth-generation BMW eDrive technology also comprises the car’s charging technology and the 64.7kWh high-voltage battery positioned flat within the vehicle’s underbody. The battery’s high energy density and the drive system’s efficiency achieve combined power consumption of 18.4 – 17.3kWh per 100km (WLTP) and a driving range of 257 – 272 miles.The Combined Charging Unit in the BMW iX1 xDrive30 enables single- and three-phase AC charging allowing the battery to be fully recharged from empty in 6.5 hours as standard and just 3 hours 45 minutes as an option. DC recharging also makes it possible to boost the battery level from 10 to 80 per cent in 29 minutes, or increase range by 75 miles in just 10 minutes.
Two plug-in hybrid models due to join the range. The BMW X1 xDrive30e and BMW X1 xDrive25e plug-in hybrid offerings later joining the model like-up both feature an integrated electric drive unit powering the rear wheels, combined with a three-cylinder petrol engine that drives the front wheels via the seven-speed Steptronic transmission with double clutch. The fifth-generation lithium-ion batteries have an increased usable content and maximum charging capacity, enabling the high-voltage battery to be fully recharged from empty in 2.5 hours with a wall box or 8 hours from a conventional domestic power socket. Electric range is now up to 48 – 55 miles in the WLTP cycle.
More interior space combined with cutting-edge digital technology. The raised seating position, generous amounts of space, and cutting-edge functionality mark out the new BMW X1. Key features include the slender instrument panel, a stage for the BMW Curved Display, and a “floating” armrest with integral controls. The user experience on board the new BMW X1 is underpinned by the seamless interaction between the BMW Curved Display, voice control, the multifunction buttons on the steering wheel and the BMW Head-Up Display (standard on Pro models). At the heart of the new BMW X1 is the standard BMW Curved Display formed by a 10.25-inch information display and a 10.7-inch control display. The screens merge into a single unit behind a continuous glass surface curved towards the driver. The state-of-the-art graphics have been designed with a smartphone-style appearance, making them perfect for intuitive touch control.
Premium interior ambience with room for extensive individualisation. The standard Sport leather steering wheel has high-quality accent trim in Pearl-effect Chrome, large thumb rests and multifunction buttons. The standard interior lighting incorporates the footwells, door openers, centre console storage compartments, reading lights, ambient light from the headliner and the door courtesy lights. The ambient lighting’s distribution, brightness and colour scheme can be configured in the iDrive menu, while the Dynamic interior light function indicates an incoming phone call or an open door with pulsating light signals. The standard BMW Live Cockpit Plus includes the cloud-based navigation system BMW Maps and a six-speaker audio system with a 100 watt amplifier. The Harman Kardon Sound System included as standard on Pro models raises the number of speakers to 12 and the amplifier output to 205 watts.
