Milan Nedeljković, member of the Board of Management of BMW AG responsible for Production, said :





“We are delivering the goods. By 2024, at least one in three BMWs coming out of our Bavarian plants will be an electric car.”

Bavarian Minister of Transport Christian Bernreiter:

“That this (BMW iX1) fully-electric car will come off the production line in Regensburg also represents a strong commitment to Bavaria as a car-building location.”

The 2023 BMW iX1 xDrive30 features two electric Motors that are powered by a 64.7 kWh net capacity battery, which also comes from Regensburg. Depending on the wheel and tyre choices, the iX1 will go 414 to 440 km of range before needing a recharge.

The BMW iFACTORY is also about ensuring short distances for logistics as most components are sourced from Regensburg.
