The choice to compare the Tesla Model Y rather than the Model X was deliberate, driven by the Model Y’s status as Tesla’s most popular and widely sold model, and one of the top-selling vehicles globally. While the Model X might align more closely with the BMW iX in terms of size and price, this review focuses on the Model Y to explore the preferences of Tesla’s broader customer base.

This review aims to delve deeper into the Tesla experience and understand what drives their customers’ decisions. Is it the value proposition, offering the best performance for the price, or do customers prioritize luxury and refinement? By examining the Model Y, we can gain insights into what makes Tesla’s most popular vehicle resonate so strongly with consumers. We will, of course, put the iX M60 agains Model X in a future review where their similarities can be explored in greater detail.

Without giving away the lengthy video review, we can leave you with this: Both the BMW iX M60 and the Tesla Model Y Long Range AWD bring unique strengths to the table. The BMW impresses with its luxurious interior, advanced technology, and smooth ride, making it a great choice for those seeking comfort and style.
