The basis of all BMW electric SUV models will be a common platform that can accommodate all types of powertrains, from gasoline and diesel to the various types of hybrids and electric motors. The iNext will have a range of 580 km. First, BMW has promised a fanciful 700 km, then passed to 600 km, and is now 579 km under the WLTP protocol.
To achieve this range, BMW will provide the iNext with a larger battery than used by Mercedes, Tesla, and Audi. They say the battery will have a capacity of 120 kWh. The iNext will also feature BMW’s most advanced semi-autonomous driving system and will be about the size of the X5.
