2024 BMW iX1 eDrive20 M Sport launched in Malaysia – Single Motor FWD.  EV range 475km. From RM250k

BMW Malaysia has introduced a new base model of the BMW iX1 called the eDrive20 M Sport. It sells for RM264,000 on the road without insurance. This figure comes with a 5-year extended warranty and a 6-year service package, but without it, the price drops to his RM249,800.

Compared to the iX1 xDrive30 M Sport launched in May last year, the eDrive20 M Sport is RM26,000 cheaper (with and without extended warranty and service package). Of course, there are some notable differences in terms of specifications that come with the lower price range.

Firstly, the eDrive20 has a single front-mounted electric motor rated at 204 PS (201 hp or 150 kW) and 250 Nm of torque with the temporary boost function activated. It has a 0-100 km/h time of 8.6 seconds and a top speed of 170 km/h.

By comparison, the xDrive30 features a dual motor setup delivering up to 313 PS (308 hp or 230 kW) and 494 Nm, resulting in a quick century sprint time of 5.6 seconds, even with temporary boost engaged. Delivers slightly higher top speed. 180km/h.

Both the eDrive20 and xDrive30 share the same lithium-ion battery with a gross energy capacity of 66.5 kWh (64.7 kWh net), but the former has a WLTP rated range of 475 km compared to 438 km for the xDrive30. I am.

Charging capacity is the same for both versions, with the eDrive20 supporting a maximum AC input of 11 kW as standard and fully charging from 0 to 100% in 6.5 hours. DC fast charging up to 130 kW is also supported, bringing the battery from 10 to 80 percent charge in 29 minutes.

One way to tell the eDrive20 from the xDrive30 is by looking at the grille. The grille is a patterned panel on the base version, while higher spec versions have vertical slats. Common equipment between the two iX1 variants includes 19-inch M double-spoke style 871 M light-alloy bicolor wheels, M Sport Styling Package, M High-Gloss Shadowline Package and M Roof Rail High-Gloss Shadowline.

The list includes adaptive LED headlamps, Adaptive M suspension, two-zone climate control, M leather steering wheel, powered front sports seats, anthracite headliner, wireless charging pad, BMW Live Cockpit Professional with 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster and 10.7 inch infotainment touchscreen), Connected Package Professional (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support), IconicSounds Electric, Harman Kardon sound system.

The interior upholstery of the eDrive20 M Sport is Veganza synthetic leather or a combination of Alcantara and Veganza, combined with lightweight aluminum ‘Hexacube’ interior trim finishers. This differs from the xDrive30 M Sport, which gets the option of Vernasca leather or a combination of Alcantara and Sensatec. The interior trim finisher has the same “hexacube” design, but with a darker finish.

In the driver assistance department, the eDrive20 M Sport comes standard with the Driving Assistant package, which includes features such as lane change warning, rear cross-traffic alert with brake intervention, exit warning, rear collision prevention and automatic emergency braking.

Interestingly, customers can get the Driving Assistant Plus package for the xDrive30 M Sport as an on-demand feature through the Connected Drive store. A quick check on the above store shows that Driving Assistant Plus is available as a subscription (RM167.55/month, RM1,675.51/year, RM2,606.35/3 years) or an unlimited (no subscription) package for RM3,273.36. I understand. There’s also a 3-month free trial.

The Driving Assistant Plus package gives you access to steering and lane control assistant, speed limit information, automatic speed limit assist, lane departure warning, and active cruise control with stop-and-go functionality. The eDrive20 comes standard with Parking Assistant Plus, which includes a 360-degree camera and reverse assistant.

Each purchase comes with an 8 year/160,000 km battery warranty, BMW Roadside Assistance, Accident Hotline and BMW Service Online. Would you choose the eDrive20 M Sport over the more expensive xDrive30 M Sport for a lower price, less power but more range, and a relatively similar kit list?
