BMW might be a little late to the party with its EVs but now that its electric vehicles are eventually then, the Bavarian brand is each set to make a robust EV descent. BMW Group has not one but three EVs in its channel for the Indian request and all of them will hit our roads within six months from now. In fact, the first EV to go on trade is obviously the important-awaited BMW iX followed by the hot door-MINI Cooper SE electric which will go on trade in 90 days from moment. The last model joining its EV portfolio will be the BMW i4 electric hydrofoil that will come to our props in 180 days from now.

The Bavarian carmaker has also verified starting with deliveries on April 22, 2022 for the iX and has started accepting pre-bookings at its dealerships across the country. The India-spec BMW iX will be launched in the xDrive40 replication that will come with a76.6 kWh battery pack and since it's the xDrive or each- wheel- drive (AWD), there will be two electric motors mounted on each axle, in- turn powering all four bus. The powertrain will churn out 322 bhp and 630 Nm of peak necklace and will propel the SUV from 0 to 100 kmph in6.1 seconds. The claimed range as per the WLTP cycle is 425 km and a 150 kW DC fast bowl will give a range of over 95 km in 10 mins, as the brand claims. BMW has also said that the more important iX xDrive50 variant has not yet been verified for India, but neither has it been ruled out for our request.

Details about the India-spec MINI electric are still meagre but the company has started accepting pre-bookings for the model for a token quantum of ₹ 1 lakh. Going by the global-spec model, the MINI Cooper SE packs an electric motor that develops 181 bhp and 270 Nm of peak necklace. Power comes from the32.6 kWh lithium-ion battery pack with a range of 270 km on a single charge. The electric hatchback can sprint from 0-100 kmph in7.3 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 150 kmph. Compared to the petrol model, the electric interpretation is about 145 kg heavier.

The BMW i4 electric hydrofoil will be offered with two powertrain choices. The eDrive40 is hinder- wheel drive and puts out 330 bhp and 430 Nm of peak necklace. Now this takes5.9 seconds to timepiece triadic- number pets and the battery has an83.9 kWh gross capacity while81.5 kWh is usable. BMW is estimating that the i4 can drive up to 483 km on a single charge according to the WLTP cycle. Also, there's the each- wheel- drive M50 hydrofoil which gets a brace of electric motors, one mounted on each axle. The electric motors then put out a total 529 bhp. BMW hasn't given the necklace affair for these all- wheel- drive variants yet. Now this bone is significantly quicker to triadic- number pets at3.9 seconds while using the same battery pack.

I have keen interest in areas such as Finance, Research, Block Chain Technology etc.
