BMW Malaysia confirms inclusion of iX3 and i4 in upcoming EV line-up led by iX SUV
BMW Malaysia's upcoming electric portfolio will include the iX3 and i4 in addition to the brand's first dedicated electric SUV, the iX. The electric counterparts of the X3 and 4 Series (if a conventionally-propelled 4GC existed) have been confirmed for the local market, with registration of interest for both models now open on the company's official website.
“We have been in the driver’s seat in accelerating innovation, awareness on new and sustainable technology for the automotive industry, shaping the infrastructure for premium electrified vehicles in Malaysia since 2015," says Hans de Visser, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia.
"Our success in Malaysia today is cemented by our position as the leader in electrified mobility here, which is underlined by an impressive delivery of over 2,200 units of electrified vehicles last year alone.”
The BMW iX3 was launched in Singapore in July, and its reception will go a long way in determining the Malaysian market's acceptance towards BMW's EVs given its proven X3 underpinnings. Meanwhile, the i4 will likely target a more affluent audience of enthusiasts with its purported blend of 350hp, 5.7-second century sprint and up to 590km of range.
