The technology unit paired with the new battery cell technologies will provide a range of 630 kilometers on the iX xDrive50 variant and about 425 kilometers on the iX xDrive40. The electric all-wheel drive system provides the right moment for all front and rear-wheel drive conditions, says the Bavarian carmaker.
The standard chassis in this range consists of a dual-wheel front axle, a five-link rear axle, lift-connected dampers and an electric steering system with the Servotronic function.
The company says the chassis, design principle and body structure have been tuned to give the electric car comfort and sporty features. EV’s aerodynamics provide it with a low drag coefficient, which helps to have a positive impact on its range and efficiency.
