BMW iX xDrive40 Malaysia: 5 tech features you need to know about this fully electric SUV


BMW Group Malaysia recently revealed the BMW iX xDrive40 which is also available in an xDrive40 Sport model as well. This new fully electric SUV will get you 425km of range, a power output of 322hp, and 630Nm of torque. The pure electric SUV can go from 0 to 100km/h in just 6.1 seconds and has a top speed of 200km/h.

To highlight some more features about this vehicle, we’re going to go through five features you would get with an iX xDrive40.

Fast charging

Running on a 76.6kWh lithium-ion battery, the iX xDrive40 supports both AC and DC charging. With AC charging, you can expect up to 11kW of fast charging, taking seven hours and 15 minutes to get a full charge.

With DC 150kW rapid charging, you can expect to go from 10-80% in only 31 minutes. You can get 100km of range with a quick 8-minute charge at a high-power charging station.

As part of an online exclusive offer, the first 50 units that are pre-booked will get complimentary charging installation and one-year public charging access.

Live Cockpit Professional system

In the interior, the vehicle has a Live Cockpit Professional system running the new BMW Operating System 8. As the peripherals, the SUV has a 12.3-inch cluster display and a large 14.9-inch touchscreen display in the center.

BMW Operating System 8 comes with an upgraded voice assistant, 5G connectivity, and will support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

BMW Laserlight

Although not included in the base version, the BMW iX xDrive40 Sport comes with BMW Laserlight headlamps. This new technology transforms a laser into a useful headlamp by putting it through various mirrors and lenses. Compared to an LED, the Laserlight is ten times brighter and 30% more efficient.

Not only will this make the road more visible in low-light conditions, but the camera Selective Beam system will also automatically dim to prevent blinding oncoming vehicles, leading to a safer drive.

18-speaker sound system

BMW did not take the sound aspect of this car lightly. The Sport model has an 18-speaker Harman Kardon sound system installed, while the base model features a Bowers & Wilkins Diamond surround sound system.
