BMW had launched the BMW iX1 SUV in September end. The car received a high demand in the market which led the company to announce that the BMW iX1 units have been sold out in the Indian market.

The automaker has also claimed that it will deliver the car to all those who will be booking the car. However, the number of units of the BMW iX1 electric has not yet been unveiled.
The BMW iX1 EV SUV is supposed to be powered by a 66.4kWh battery. The battery also claims to give a maximum power output of 308bhp and a peak torque of 494Nm. The 66.4Kwh battery with a dual motor setup is going to come with an all-drive mechanism. The automakers have announced that the BMW iX1 EV is going to give a seamless range of 440 kilometers on a single charge.
