BMW has introduced the BMW iX1 electric car along with the new generation BMW X1 (1/6). The BMW iX1 has officially become the smallest SUV electric car in the BMW lineup as well as one of the newest members of the BMW i to launch this year.
By design, the BMW iX1 follows the latest generation of the BMW X1, which now follows the BMW X3 and BMW X5.
Call it a body that is more robust and stocky than before and combined with the boxy Kidney Grille.
Then specifically for the iX1, BMW did not forget to add blue accents to the Kidney Grille, bumper, side skirts, and steering wheel emblem.
