2023 BMW iX M60 Breaks Cover As A 610-HP Electric SUV With 280-Mile Range
Can The BMW i4 M50 Defeat The Tesla Model 3 Performance In A Drag Race?
The ‘Carwow’ team kicked off 2022 with a drag race between two entry-level EVs from Tesla and BMW – the Model 3 and the i4. Both the cars were in their sportiest trims and were out to battle each other on the drag strip. The i4 M50 makes more power, but it is also significantly heavier. Which car do you think will get the win here?
Here’s What the Cybertruck Would Look Like if BMW Owned Tesla
Have you ever wondered what the Cybertruck is really missing? The answer is not a futuristic look - we can tell you that for sure! What the truck is really missing is a grille! Of course it doesn’t need one since we are talking about an electric vehicle, but Superrenderscars came with the perfect solution.
2023 BMW i7 Prototype Benchmarked Against Tesla Model Y and Mercedes EQS
BMW is very serious about electrifying its future lineup. So far we’ve seen the iX and the i4, but the future will bring electric versions for pretty much every other car in the lineup. So far, the future i5 and the i7 are the ones that seem the most promising ones. A previous report suggested both cars will deliver in excess of 750 horsepower - making them the most powerful BMW road cars.
Rumor Has It That BMW Is Working on an i5 Touring
The next-gen BMW 5 series has been spied numerous times in 2021 despite the fact that the current-generation model was just updated. We’ve also recently seen the i5 – the 5 Series EV that will be sold alongside the traditional 5 Series- but now we’ve learned that the i5 won’t be just an electric sedan – there’s actually more to it. And, by more, I mean more interior space and cargo room.
Check Out the Nose on this BMW 5 Series and BMW i5 prototype
Here are some exclusive spy shots of the prototypes of the next-generation BMW 5 Series which is currently at an early stage of development. Although the vehicle seen here is tightly camouflaged, lacking normal headlights and taillights, the form factor does reveal the sedan’s new shape.
The BMW i5 M and i7 Will Change the Way you Look at BMW Forever
The BMW iX and i4 are on their way to spearhead BMW’s new and revitalized EV lineup, but those cars will have nothing on the new i7 or the i5 M. If this latest report is accurate, the i5 M and i7 will make both the 617-horsepower M8 and 627-horsepower M5 CS (the most powerful BMW to date, by the way) appear weak by comparison. How is that possible? Well, folks, the nature of electrification is changing the automotive landscape forever, and this is just the start.
BMW’s New Electric Architecture Comes With a Lot of Surprises, the First Being An Electric 3 Series
We now know that BMW is working on a new compact EV Saloon. Internally known today as the NK1, the rest of the world will know it as the 3 Series EV when it launches in 2025. It will serve as an alternative to the next-gen, fuel-powered 3 Series. Sitting atop a new electric architecture known as Neue Klasse, this electric 3 Series will be the first big step forward in BMW’s massive shift to electrification and will pave the way for a whole-new generation of BMW EVs – including an extended lineup of SUVs. This news, however, is about a lot more than a new electric 3 Series, and more about BMW’s path to the future.
BMW i Vision Circular Concept Is A 100-Percent Recyclable City Car
BMW revealed a concept vehicle at the 2021 IAA Mobility Show in Munich called the i Vision Circular. This concept is a city car that looks quite cute and focuses on sustainability. Almost every company that makes EVs says its committed to using sustainable materials in its vehicles, but BMW has taken it to the next level. The i Vision Circular is composed of 100-percent recyclable materials! Don’t expect it to come out anytime soon because this is the German automaker’s vision what its compact EV would look like in the year 2040.
2022 BMW iX3
BMW just admitted that it could have done better with the iX3 by updating it for the 2022 model year. As you’d expect for a model that hit the market a little over one year ago, the iX3 doesn’t see anything major, but there are some noteworthy appearance changes. The front end, for example, now features a larger grille and the headlights are now just a bit slimmed – 10 mm, to be exact. The front apron was restyled while the rear end is now more muscular and features 3D taillights. The 2022 iX3 also comes standard with the M Sport package. While 19-inch wheels come as standard, you can opt for the M aerodynamic 20-inch wheels, too.
On the inside, you’ll find a new 12.3-inch instrument cluster and an enlarged control display. The sports seats can be had in a new Sensatec perforated upholstery that’s combined with an Aluminum Rhombicle dark contrasting finish. Motivation is derived from an electric powertrain that’s good for 286 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. 0-60 mph comes in as little as 6.8 seconds while top speed is limited to just 112 mph. As far as the range goes, you’ll get 286 miles from a single charge but can add up to 62 miles with 10 minutes of fast charging. There’s no word on pricing yet, but the 2022 BMW iX3 will be shown off in public for the first time at the 2021 Munich Auto Show in September 2021.
2022 BMW i4 - This Is The German Automaker’s Answer To The Tesla Model 3
BMW unveiled the i4 digitally at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show. A year later, the company has finally debuted the model along with its crossover sibling, the iX. The 2022 BMW i4 will be offered in two different trims, one of them being a performance version that makes over 500 horses. The i4 will launch Stateside in the first quarter of 2022 and will come with a starting price tag of $55,400.
If This Image Is Real, It’s Our First Look at the BMW i4 M50
The new BMW i4 was revealed back in March of 2021, and it’s poised to become the world’s very first electric BMW M car. Dubbed the i4 M for now, we’ve seen plenty of spy shots but this leaked image could be our very first look at what a real electric M car looks like. Some are calling I the i4 M others are calling it the i4 M50. Either way, it’s an electric car, and it’s wearing an M badge.
BMW’s First Electric M Car Will Sound Kind of Like A Space Ship
Even we - car enthusiasts - must acknowledge that EVs are now part of automotive culture. Although there is still a debate around their sustainability or even the point of EVs in general, one aspect we can all agree on is the sound, or more specifically the lack thereof. BMW M has recognized that electrification has taken away an important aspect for the car enthusiast, so they have enlisted the help of legendary composer Hans Zimmer in order to try and create a thrilling futuristic sound for their first EV.
The Next-Gen BMW M3 Will Probably Be Electric
The current BMW M3 (and M4, for that matter) are so new that the welds on the have yet to cool, so why would I even consider talking about the next-gen model already? Because time tends to fly, and the next-gen M3 will actually be here before we know it. Add to this the fact that automotive technology is advancing incredibly fast, and it’s hard not to think about how different the next-gen M3 might actually be. Will BMW follow the hybridization route or will it go one step further and make the BMW M3 (And M4) full-on electric vehicles? I’m going to go out on a limb and say it’ll be the latter, and my reasoning behind this is rooted deeply in logic.

BMW i4 Partially Unveiled With 300-Mile Range, 500+ HP, 0-62 Time of 4 Seconds
BMW CEO Casts Shade All Over Elon Musk and Tesla
Tesla can be credited for igniting this full-on electric car movement we’ve been witnessing over the past couple of years, with Dieselgate acting as a catalyzer for Volkswagen AG but also for other German brands, BMW included.
Well-established carmakers have been on a spending spree trying to develop electric powertrains and EVs and BMW CEO Oliver Zipse believes they will soon catch up with Tesla and even get ahead of it.
2022 BMW iX
First introduced back in 2018, the upcoming iX is based on the Vision iNext concept and will be in BMW’s lineup from 2022 as their first electric compact SUV. With a completely different styling inside out and a promise of up to 300 miles on a single charge, the company will receive a lot of response when the iX will hit the markets. However, BMW did not reveal every tiny detail about the vehicle but we will try and cover everything that we know till now.
BMW M Electrification Is Coming, And It Is Happening Sooner Than You Think
By the end of the year, we might witness the debut of BMW M’s first-ever all-electric car. We’re not the ones saying it, it’s BMW itself. Even so, there are a lot of unknown puzzle pieces and before more official info comes our way, here’s what we know so far about BMW M’s plans to electrify, partially of totally, its range.
Have a Few Laughs At BMW’s Expense in "A Story of Generations"
It’s hard to believe that BMW’s iDrive infotainment system is 20 years old this year. But it is, and if you need a little reminder of that, this short film from Bimmer will give you all the reminding you need. The film stars a grumpy, foul-mouthed BMW E65 7 Series and a much younger BMW iX. The two talking Bimmers argue about which of them is the better car.
Curse words are uttered, feelings are hurt, and a resolution happens towards the end. It’s a weird short film that’ll make you wonder what Bimmer’s marketing folks are sipping these days, but there is a story that’s told perfectly here, too. This is a story of two generations of BMW that couldn’t be more different from each other, though the two do have ties that bind. Give it a watch and prepare to have feelings about it afterward.
