In just 5 days, BMW Group Malaysia had received 64 pre-booking registrations for its upcoming BMW iX, coincidentally corresponding to Malaysia’s 64th National Day. Due to this overwhelming response, BMW has extended its pre-booking benefits to the first 100 customers who pre-book the iX (up from 50).
Pre-booking of this fully electric vehicle can be done for a fee of RM5,000 in the BMW Shop Online platform (https://shop.bmw.com.my/). Exclusive for the first 100 customers to pre-book the BMW iX xDrive40 and iX xDrive40 Sport are Complimentary Charging Installation and Complimentary 1-year Public Charging Access. This benefit is available until 22 September 2021 (terms and conditions apply).
“We are pleased to see Malaysians take a bold step in choosing sustainable mobility as part of their lifestyle, which underlines our belief that the future is in fact electric. We have long committed to shape the future of mobility in the country, and we will confidently continue to cultivate the shift towards electromobility further by accelerating the availability of charging infrastructures in Malaysia and rapidly expanding the BMW i dealer network in key cities nationwide,” said Hans de Visser, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia.
The BMW iX has a driving range of up to 630 km, based on the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). In relative terms, the distance between Johor Bahru and Kuala Lumpur is approximately 330 km. Thus, all one needs to do a round trip is a quick charge along the way to top up.
BMW has designed the iX as a minimalist living space on wheels. It employs the Shy Tech concept to the vehicle, where the tech features are discreet and hidden until they are needed. Further, it also features the very first BMW IconicSounds Electric aural experience. Developed in collaboration with Hans Zimmer, the world-famous composer and Academy Awards winner, the generated sound is meant to provide EV drivers with an emotional driving experience.
