This car door has a vacuum door feature, so you don’t need to close the door hard because it will automatically close tightly.
Towards the dashboard, there is a curved LCD screen extending from behind the steering wheel to the middle of the dashboard, which gives a luxurious impression.
Then the steering wheel is hexagonal in shape and can be adjusted electrically by tilt and telescopic.
There are not many settings buttons that are ‘sticky’ on the dashboard. Because all systems are integrated on an elongated screen on the dashboard.
Then the control panel, which is located in the middle, is no less charming with its wooden material and also functions as an armrest.
Even though the control panel is made of wood, it can be operated using a touch system.
It doesn’t stop there; to make it look even more luxurious, the control panel is sweetened with crystal accents on the volume settings.
Then underneath, there is wireless charging with two USB Type-C charging sockets.
The leg room and head room are also spacious, so your comfort when driving is guaranteed. Not only that, but this premium car also has a panoramic sunroof complete with electrochromatic technology.

On the passenger side, there is a 4-zone digital AC setting and two charging sockets on the back of the front seats. So in total, there are 4 charging sockets with USB Type C models.
This BMW iX truly represents a premium SUV. First of all, it can be seen from the front.
Even though it relies on electric power, BMW’s signature kidney grille is still maintained.
The difference in the grille lies in the latest technology embedded, namely embedded cameras and sensors behind the grille.
Of course, the function of these two features is safety and driving comfort.
In addition, the grille features a heating element to ‘protect’ the sensor and camera from moisture that could impair performance.
At the rear, the stern of the BMW iX is designed in an elegant and minimalist manner.
The rear lights have a thin design with a combination of white and silver.
These lights have a sequential pattern when the car is on, so this BMW electric car looks even more futuristic. For the trunk, to increase security when opening the trunk, there is a stop lamp that automatically lights up on the inside.
The BMW iX is equipped with dual electric motors with a total power of 523 PS and a maximum torque of 765 Nm. To reach 0-100 km/hour, this electric car only takes 4.6 seconds, with a top speed of 200 km/hour.
