BMW’s Electric Vehicle Offensive Continues As iX1 Spotted


Spy photographers have already snapped photos of the redesigned BMW X1 and now they’ve captured the upcoming iX1.

Hinted at in 2017, the iX1 is in the early stages of development and looks virtually identical to previous X1 prototypes. However, it features “Electric Test Vehicle” badging which confirms its eco-friendly powertrain.
