Hey all,

First post here... :)

I have a iX50 on order, (due June 2023!) and I like to keep up with all things BMW. Now I noticed in the press release material that the new (2023) all electric X1 supports AC charging at up to 11kW as standard, with 22kW charging capability as an option.

Given the that both the iX40 and iX50 have larger batteries than the X1, has anyone heard anything about 22kW AC charging coming to the iX?

Thanks,
Ross

Thanks for posting that khaost!

I will keep looking out for anything new... Given the delivery date of my iX isn't until next year, I would love to add it if it's an option by then!

If anyone else sees anything, please post it also.

It was actually on the UK BMW website as 22kW when the vehicle was aviable to order - but removed the 00.51 hrs doubled
In the UK we get a universal charger with that you can use a 400V 3 phase plug and get 11kW anywhere that has a standard european 3 phase outlet 16A or 32A
Useful to me a customer of mine is 300 miles from me I get there on one charge and get back after charging at his company
Thats just $35 (at home or fast charger) for 600 miles, in a gas powered X5 M50i would be $220 at UK fuel price of $9.00 / US Gallon

How do you get a full charge in even if 11kw at the customers?

this is why the lack of 22kw was such a disappointment.
at 22 a 4 hour visit/stop and you can be pretty much back to 100%
Not many sites have fast DC given the cost of the equipment and specialist install.

I'm at this customer at least a day, in the UK the roll out of public chargers are all DC rapid
The 11kW is possible just plugging into a 3 phase supply, 22kW needs a charging point agreed a lot less cost than DC and companies may offer these for their vistors or employees
many do in the UK but usually just 7kW
