    THE FIRST GENERATION (G60).

    In 2023, the BMW i5 heralds a new age. It’s the first model in the BMW 5 Series with an all-electric drive system. With 250 kW of power, the BMW i5 eDrive40 is exciting and sporty to cruise in. Its range of 582 km[1] lends it everyday practicality and ensures peace of mind over long distances. Extensive assistance systems such as the Driving Assist Professional and BMW Live Cockpit Professional ensure greater safety and comfort.

    Visually, the BMW i5 follows in the successful footsteps of the BMW 5 Series, with functional design details added. Its appearance has the typical proportions of a BMW, with a long wheelbase, extended bonnet and flowing roofline. Highlights such as the illuminated BMW Iconic Glow kidney grille, large panoramic glass sunroof and crystalline Interaction Bar emphasize its luxurious nature.

    BMW i5 M60 (G60).

    The BMW i5 M60 delivers the power of a BMW M. A sprightly 442 kW translates to a maximum speed of 230 km/h. It can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds. And thanks to the BMW M Sport braking system, it stops quickly as well. The intelligent BMW xDrive all-wheel drive adapts the vehicle to new conditions in fractions of a second. The result is optimum traction and stability. The Integral Active Steering is equally flexible – nimble when parking and stable at high speeds. With a purely electric range of up to 516 km[1], it’s ideally equipped for both everyday trips and long journeys.
     

    Visually, the performance of the BMW i5 M60 is reflected in its appearance. At night, in particular, the illuminated radiator grille with BMW kidney Iconic Glow is a real eye-catcher. If desired, the exterior can be further enhanced with carbon parts, such as painstakingly handmade exterior mirrors. Or the M rear spoiler, which makes the vehicle even more stable at high speeds.


    The interior is sporty as well. Breathable sports seats offer optimum support. Iconic M-style indicators enhance the instrument display for an exciting and dynamic look. If desired, the cockpit can be transformed into a concert hall, with the optional Bowers & Wilkins Surround Sound System. 17 loudspeakers and 655 watts give the full range of emotion to your favourite songs.

    THE FIRST GENERATION (G70).

    The BMW i7 is the face of a new luxury class. Since 2022, it has shown that elegance, outstanding driving characteristics and sustainability deliver more than the sum of their parts.

    The exterior speaks a monolithic design language, while the iconic front grabs the attention. Illuminated kidney grilles really make an impression. Streamlined, two-piece LED headlights exude elegance. A premium version is also available if desired: BMW Iconic Glow crystal headlights with backlit Swarovski crystals. Combined with the impressive “Great Entrance Moments” lighting effects, the driver welcome provides unforgettable moments.

    High-quality materials embellish the interior. Merino leather, cashmere wool and Swarovski crystals convey an air of luxury. The multifunctional crystal element of the BMW Interaction Bar combines both visual and touch control. Together with the high-resolution 14.9" BMW Curved Display, the result is a unique multimedia cockpit.

    Passengers enjoy complete comfort in the new BMW i7 as well. The ample 31.3" BMW Theatre Screen creates a large-scale cinema ambience. With the crystal-clear 4D audio of the Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound System, rear seat occupants are immersed in a unique experience for the eyes and ears.

    A masterful 400 kW enables the BMW i7 xDrive60 to achieve an all-electric range of up to 625 km[1], with no emissions when driving locally and almost no sound. Instead, the acoustic atmosphere is provided by BMW IconicSounds Electric. This unique soundtrack to accompany every drive mode was composed by Hans Zimmer.

    BMW i7 M760 (G70).

    In 2023, the new electric luxury class BMW i7 meets the powerful performance of the BMW M. The result is the BMW i7 M70. Its powerful BMW M eDrive motor with 485 kW accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds. The Executive Drive Pro included as standard further enhances the driving dynamics with Integral Active Steering and adaptive 2-axle air suspension. At the same time, efficiency is increased by a lightweight structure and aerodynamic design, propelling the BMW i7 M70 to a range of up to 559 km[1]. This way, you’ll arrive at any everyday destination using the electric motor only, with no emissions when driving locally and almost no sound.

    The exterior reflects these impressive characteristics for all to see. The extended M High-gloss Shadowline exterior trim conveys an air of exclusivity in glossy Black. The aerodynamically optimised M rear spoiler and black M Sport braking system demonstrate that this car is ready for action. Seen from the front, the striking kidney grille radiates a strong personality, especially in combination with the Iconic Glow kidney illumination – a real eye-catcher, especially at night. By day, optional BMW Individual two-tone paintwork is a unique feature that grabs everyone’s attention.


    Sporty and elegant on the outside, comfortable and luxurious on the inside. The atmosphere is enhanced by high-quality materials such as cashmere wool and Swarovski crystals. These are coupled with innovative technologies, such as the BMW Interaction Bar and BMW Curved Display. In the rear seat, the large 31.3" BMW Theatre Screen sends passengers on a visual, cinematic journey, naturally accompanied by the 4D audio of the optional Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound System.

    BMW iX.

    The vehicle of a new generation. The all-electric BMW iX offers sustainable luxury. Elegant minimalism. State-of-the-art motor technology. Here, maximum comfort meets a monolithic design and a unique feeling of spaciousness.

    BMW iX Electric SUV in Autumn Red driving on a main street in an urban setting.

    THE FIRST GENERATION (i20).

    The pioneering spirit of the BMW iX is already apparent from the outside. Just a few very characterful lines accentuate its purist shape. Seamlessly integrated details further enhance this effect. The twin headlights are the narrowest that BMW has ever installed. An expressive, vertical BMW kidney grille completes the T-shape of the front. Flush-mounted door handles, frameless doors and square wheel arches convey an image of extravagance from the side, too.

    But the BMW iX boasts impressive technology as well. Two powerful electric motors and the electric BMW xDrive all-wheel drive merge the DNA of a BMW X with an electric drive system. The BMW iX xDrive40 version delivers a performance of 240 kW (362 hp) over a range of up to 564 km[1]. Meanwhile, the BMW iX xDrive50 is even more powerful, with 385 kW (523 hp) over a distance of up to 435 km[1]. At quick-charging stations, both cars get from 10 to 80 percent in under 40 minutes[2]. And in both, innovative technologies such as the BMW iDrive and extensive assistance and entertainment systems are also on board.

    BMW iX M60 (i20).

    The BMW iX M60 is the first electric car in the M SUV segment. It brings powerful, locally emission-free performance to everyday driving.

    Two all-electric BMW eDrive motors deliver a masterful 455 kW. The 1015 Nm torque is constantly ready for a sprint. With BMW IconicSounds Electric, even the sound is a truly exceptional experience. A range of up to 633 kilometres[1] carries you to any everyday destination without problem.

    On the outside, a progressive design language predominates: monolithic, sporty and modern. And the dynamic front section with vertical double kidney grille, narrow twin headlights and three-piece front apron is a real show-stopper. From the side, 22" M aerodynamic wheels in Titanium Bronze cannot fail to impress. The rear end with Shadowline headlights is just as striking. And from above, the optional panoramic Sky Lounge glass sunroof floods the interior with light.

    The interior is clear and minimalist. Technology is ever-present, but intelligently concealed. Here, shy tech is the name of the game: state-of-the-art technology is elegantly incorporated in the design. The loudspeakers are invisibly integrated in the interior, for example. Buttons are reduced to the essentials. The effect of the installed technology is therefore both stylish and innovative. On the frameless BMW Curved Display, the intelligent functions of the BMW Live Cockpit Professional bring you to your destination in comfort and elegance, with intuitive touch or voice control.

    THE FIRST GENERATION (G26).

    The all-electric BMW i4 Gran Coupé conveys an impressive and self-assured air. Its design presents its innovative nature to the outside world. The kidney grille is vertical, the headlights are at a dynamic, oblique angle, and the rear wheel arches generously accentuate the car’s width.

    The BMW i4 eDrive40 Gran Coupé delivers 250 kW and the immediately available maximum torque promises a sporty electric driving experience. Its innovative drive concept keeps it constantly efficient as well. And comfort is also ideal, as the BMW i4 Gran Coupé glides almost silently through the streets.


    What’s more, with its optimised weight distribution and harmonised chassis and drive components, the steering is exceptionally pleasant and precise. The range is up to 589 kilometres[1], getting you to all the usual everyday destinations.


    Production period: since 2021

    BMW i4 M50 (G26).

    The BMW i4 M50 offers the sporty performance of a BMW M – powered fully by electricity. It is driven by two fifth-generation BMW M eDrive motors. In Sport Boost mode, it delivers a powerful 400 kW, seamlessly catapulting it from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds, accompanied by the expressive soundtrack of BMW M IconicSounds Electric. The high-performance M Sport braking system brings it just as powerfully to a stop. The Adaptive M suspension, installed as standard, ensures maximum precision and also peace of mind, because the fully electric range of up to 519 kilometres[1] means that long distances are no problem either.

    On the exterior, this fusion of BMW M and BMW i is evident not just in details like the M logo in the kidney grille or the iconic BMW i blue ring around the BMW logo – the entire design is aerodynamically optimised, from the enclosed M kidney grille to the expressive diffuser elements and M rear spoiler.


    A glance inside the interior reveals a consistently driver-oriented cockpit. The BMW Curved Display is wholly facing the driver. Combined with the streamlined instrument panel, it creates a clear, modern look. The M steering wheel with contrasting stitching in M colours has a sporty appearance but is also pleasingly grippy. The breathable M Sport seats ensure comfort for all passengers. Even if their pulse is quickening!

    THE FIRST GENERATION (G08).

    The BMW iX3 with electric drive first comes on the scene in 2021. Even at first sight, the iconic BMW i kidney grilles confidently flaunt the car’s electric nature. Inside, the ambient lighting preset to BMW i Blue as standard gives an air of sustainability. The innovative drive is started by the blue Start/Stop knob. Its responsible approach goes even deeper than this: the electric drive of the BMW iX3 manages entirely without rare earth metals, but at 120–210 kW it’s also exceptionally powerful. The sensitivity of braking regeneration, i.e. the recuperation of brake energy, can be set to four different levels to suit your desired driving style. This way, the BMW iX3 can travel up to 461 km[1]. And on the way, it can simply be recharged from 10 to 80 percent[2] in about 31 minutes at a quick-charging station.

    Production period: since 2020

    THE FIRST GENERATION (U11).

    The BMW iX1 hits the market in 2022. As the first all-electric compact SAV, it is the electric entry-level model among BMW X vehicles.

    On the one hand, it has the powerful readiness to spring into action typical of a BMW X. On the other hand, it boasts the efficiency of BMW eDrive technology. It has an especially flat high-voltage battery, which is installed in the underbody. And an effective recuperation system, which recovers energy generated by braking.


    From the outside, the BMW iX1 emanates sportiness with powerful upright proportions and a prominent front end. At the model launch, blue accents reflect the innovative drive technology under the bonnet. In the modern interior, even longer journeys are a delight. Passengers can enjoy active seats that are individually, electrically adjustable. The elegant, frameless BMW Curved Display enables intuitive control by voice and touch. This is also the interface to the powerful BMW iDrive.


    Production period: since 2022

    THE FIRST GENERATION (i01).

    The BMW i3 comes onto the market in 2013. Not only is it the first electric BMW in standard production – it’s also the very first production vehicle to combine a passenger cell of carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic with an aluminium chassis. This means it weighs exactly the same as a conventional compact car with combustion engine – despite the battery. In addition, many of its parts are made from renewable raw materials.

    Its electric motor achieves a performance of 125 kW. The torque conveys the full force of electric power even at the slightest touch of the pedal. In 2017, along comes the BMW i3s with 10 kW more. Meaning it can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.9 seconds, 0.4 seconds faster than the BMW i3.


    A 33.2 kWh battery is added in 2016. And in 2018, this capacity increases all the way up to 42.2 kWh. Now the BMW i3 achieves a range of 307 km (WLTP)[1]. At a quick-charging station with more than 50 kW, it is fully charged in a mere 1.4 hours. Over 250,000 BMW i3 and BMW i3s vehicles have rolled off the production line and onto roads around the world.


    Production period: 2013 – 2022

    THE FIRST GENERATION (i12, i15).

    The BMW i8 is propelled by an innovative hybrid engine, with electric front-wheel drive and a BMW TwinPower Turbo 3-cylinder petrol engine driving the rear wheels. As a result, it only consumes the same amount of petrol as a small car but packs the driving performance of a sports car. The coupé manages a maximum speed of 120 km/h purely with the electric motor. Up to 2019, the combined power is 266 kW, and after this it climbs to as much as 275 kW.

    Visually, too, the BMW i8 raises the bar. It’s the first production vehicle with laser lights, and is also available as a Roadster from 2018. In total, 20,500 of these landmark vehicles were built.
