The new BMW iX is now officially premiered, with prices starting from EUR 77,300 for the entry-level xDrive40 variant and going up to at least EUR 98,000 for the current xDrive50 range-topper.

Until the complete configurator is set-up on most websites around the world, BMW has revealed an online visualizer where we can get to spec the new iX and learn more about the trim lines, paintworks, upholstery choices and wheels.
For starters, the new BMW iX will be offered with two exterior trim package: Essence and Signature Sports Package. Both lines will be further configurable as follows:

In what the color palette is concerned, the all-new iX can be customized with both standard uni/metallic and BMW Individual metallic paintworks also available for the X5, X6 and X7. It is worth mentioning that high-end Individual finishes will, for the moment, be reserved exclusively for the range-topping Signature Sports Package trim lines.
