Road&Track, 9/28/2021:
"The most egregious in a long line of increasingly cartoony grill treatments, the iX carries the added insult inherent to its application to an electric car. It's not a grill, just a flat plastic panel…"
Car&Driver, 11/23/2020:
"…aggressive front end profile despite the lack of a requirement to cool a combustion engine. Instead the grill contains a camera, radar and an array of other sensors."

the battery is located under the length of the cabin floor and is cooled by a plate attached to its underside.

1200 is a legend. No electric vehicle or bike will ever beat a NA engine. Ever.

It's doubtful California Highway Patrol will consider BMW iX during the next N (enter your own digit or digits) decades.

iX cop cars will make escapes much easier. You don't even need 250 mile/hr
