Updated BMW iX xDrive50 Sport and iX M60 arrive with 22kW AC charging, priced from RM466K


KUALA LUMPUR: BMW Malaysia today introduced the refreshed iX xDrive50 Sport and iX M60.

The two model variants joined the X5 xDrive50e M Sport plug-in hybrid that was launched last month.

The xDrive50 Sport is priced at RM465,800 and the M60 at RM579,800, both on-the-road without insurance and with standard two-year warranty. Choosing the optional 5-year extended warranty and BMW service & repair package, valued at RM33,200, would bump up the respective prices to RM499,000 and RM613,000.

The xDrive50 Sport and M60 now come with enhanced technological capabilities. These updates aim to solidify BMW's position in the premium electric vehicle sector, offering advancements in charging technology, suspension systems, and overall driving experience.

Enhanced charging capabilities

A notable upgrade is the inclusion of the AC Charging Professional feature as standard across both variants.

This advancement brings a 22 kW charging capability to the xDrive50 Sport, significantly reducing charging times.  Previously, the onboard AC charger maxed out at 11kW.

Owners of the xDrive50 Sport can now achieve a full charge (0 to 100%) in 5 hours and 30 minutes, a substantial improvement over previous charging durations. Like before, the M60 continues to support 22kW AC charging and takes the same amount of time as the new xDrive50 Sport to get a full charge.

DC fast charging remains unchanged in both variants at 195kW, enabling a rapid charge from 0% to 80% in 35 minutes. BMW also offers an 11kW AC Wallbox charger for a full charge in 11 hours.

Nationwide charging network

iX owners have access to over 1,700 charging stations nationwide. Strategic partnerships with local EV charging providers, such as ChargeEV and Yinson GreenTech, along with JomCharge, Gentari, and others, have expanded access to more than 400 facilities.
