The BMW iX has been a very popular electric SUV for the company and sales have been better than expected despite the stiff competition from rivals like the Mercedes EQC 400 4MATIC which is priced at RM388k.
So, to start 2023 on a high note, BMW Malaysia has announced product updates for the BMW iX xDrive50 Sport.
Production at BMW Group Plant Dingolfing using purely green power, monitored raw materials extraction, high proportion of natural and recycled materials
The BMW iX is produced at BMW Group Plant Dingolfing. Both the vehicle itself and the battery cells is manufactured using green power across the board.
The BMW Group procures the cobalt and lithium required for the high-voltage batteries from controlled sources in Australia and Morocco and delivers it to the battery cell manufacturers. The design principle for the electric motors allows the use of rare earth metals to be avoided in the drive system rotors. Added to which, the company sources aluminium produced using power from solar energy plants.
