BMW Malaysia Opens Pre-Booking For New BMW iX xDrive40 and iX xDrive40 Sport Electric Vehicles

BMW Malaysia has released some details of the BMW range of i electric vehicles as it opens up pre-booking and registration of interest to the public for the new BMW iX xDrive40 and BMW iX xDrive40 Sport. The introduction of these fully electric vehicles is part of the premium automaker’s Sustainable Mobility Strategy it wants to commit to in the country.

BMW iX xDrive50 Sport_RearHans de Visser, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia said, “This is a milestone for the BMW Group, even more so for us at BMW Group Malaysia. We have been in the driver’s seat in accelerating innovation, awareness on new and sustainable technology for the automotive industry, shaping the infrastructure for premium electrified vehicles in Malaysia since 2015. Our success in Malaysia today is cemented by our position as the leader in electrified mobility here, which is underlined by an impressive delivery of over 2,200 units of electrified vehicles last year alone.”

De Visser added that the incoming fleet of electric vehicles from BMW i will present all the best possibilities of Sheer Electric Driving Pleasure to loyal BMW customers and EV enthusiasts in Malaysia, with no compromise.

It features the first of its kind Shy Tech concept which allows modern technology and innovation in the vehicle to discreetly blend in the background until needed or explicitly desired. It also features the very first BMW IconicSounds Electric which is a collaborative development with Academy Award winning composer, Hans Zimmer.

Some key differences between the 2 variants offered are:

  • LED headlights for the iX xDrive40; BMW Laserlights for the iX xDrive40 Sport and the iX xDrive50 Sport (the latter variant will come later).
  • Driving Assistant and Parking Assistant features are standard for the iX xDrive40; Driving Assistant Professional and Parking Assistant Plus for the Sport variants.
  • Harman Kardon surround sound system and a control panel made of sustainably produced, certified wood.
  • Exclusive to the iX xDrive50 Sport are the Integral Active Steering and the adaptive 2-axle air suspension.

With a driving range of up to 630 km (WLTP), the iX variants promise to dispel the oft-mentioned range anxiety when it comes to electric mobility.
