BMW 1 Series : Price Range 30,000$
The new plug-in hybrid model of the BMW’s one series hatchback which has been in production since 2019 is now undergoing electrification by the manufacturer. The revised one series hatchback isn’t expected to arrive in the United States until 2023 the X drive 25E of the departing X1 might serve as a basis for a future plug-in hybrid version of the 1 series for BMW.
However the upcoming BMW IX1 will prove that the platform is suitable for zero emission drivetrains when it goes into production. In any case the M135I X drive will continue to provide the highest level of performance among the available options. It’s probable that the 1 series makeover may introduce hybrid technology for the first time in some manner.
Based on the 10 kilowatt hour battery supported configuration in the X1 the one series engine lineup may be expanded to include a plug-in hybrid engine option. This would provide a range of at least 30 miles using solely electricity. The price is estimated to range at around 33,000$.
BMW IX1 : Price Range 40,000$
Although only the X-drive 28I trim level is available to American buyers. The third generation BMW X1 is available in an all-electric configuration for European buyers.

BMW claims that the all-wheel drive system would provide supreme traction and directional stability and that it can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in under 5.7 seconds. The electric energy is stored in a flat floor mounted 64.7 kilowatt hour battery which should provide between 256 and 272 miles of driving range on a single charge. According to current info the cost will be roughly 40 thousand dollars.
BMW IX3 : Cost around 65,000$
The IX-3 BMW has forged its own path is skewing the high output and all-wheel drive arrangement found in many of its competitors. The pure electric SUV seems nimbler and more agile than you’d anticipate from a vehicle of this type and most of its rivals can’t even come close to matching its performance to efficiency ratio.
With 282 horsepower, it can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 6.8 seconds, but driving allows you to achieve up to 3.5 miles per kilowatt hour. The end result is close to the official WLTP cycle range of 279 miles and has a regular driving range of roughly 260 miles.
IX3’s battery life isn’t a concern since it can recharge from zero to eighty percent in 27 minutes at 150 kilowatts ultra rapid chargers and from empty to full in 12 hours at seven kilowatts wall boxes. The price is estimated to be around sixty five thousand dollars.
BMW I4 : Cost around 60,000$
The I4 version has the newest version of BMW’s kidney grille which is finished in black glossy paint. Its low slung three box look is refreshing after seeing a slew of aggressively styled two box SUVs.

The first is rear-wheel drive and has a single rear axle mounted electric motor that generates 335 horsepower and 317 pound-feet. The second is fwd and has two electric motors one in the front and one in the back. The EPA estimates its range as 301 miles on 18 inch wheels and 282 miles on 19 inch wheels for the my 2022 models when coupled with an 81.5 kilowatt hour battery.
The 2023 I4E drive 40 is anticipated to have a 300-mile range, accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in under 5.5 seconds, and have a top speed of 118 miles per hour. The price is anticipated to be upwards of $60,000.

BMW IX5 : Cost around 100,000$
Although it appears as if hydrogen will always be the fuel of the future BMW believes it is very close ready for prime time. With or without the hydrogen-powered SUVs BMW is planning to roll out an IX-5 hydrogen fleet later this year. On-board hydrogen is stored in two 700 bar carbon fiber reinforced plastic tanks which are used to power a fuel cell beneath the hood. But for this 5600 plus pound SUV the fuel cell alone delivers 170 horsepower which is not enough.
Hence because of this BMW also uses a bigger electric drive battery that can be recharged using either the fuel cell or energy recovery. The total output of the drivetrain is 374 horsepower which is more than sufficient. Comparing the X5 X-drive 45E plug-in hybrid has 389 horsepower.
Driving the IX-5 hydrogen is quite similar to driving an electric car due to regenerative brakes, and the only exterior design alterations that stand out are a blue accent and closed-off exhaust housings. The cost might be more than $100,000 according to estimates.
