Ultimate Electric Driving Machine
We've always leased BMWs through our company. After selling the business last year, my husband bought his leased car, (2019 BMW M850i) and I turned in my 2020 X5 M50i to buy a new car. As a loyal fan, I was happy that BMW had entered the EV market with some strong contenders, and the iX really appealed to me. We ordered it in March of 2022, and it finally arrived in mid-December. I've never bought a car I couldn't test drive beforehand, so it was quite a leap, but I had faith in the brand. Our home already had the wiring installed for an EV charging station, so we purchased a Level 2 Charge Point unit (BMW brand was not available). When it finally arrived, the car did not disappoint! It's a blast to drive, so much so that my husband drives it more than his beloved M8...
Honestly, I'm not a long road trip type of person, so range anxiety is not a factor for me. My children and grandchildren all live about 2 hours away in different directions, and I can easily go back and forth on one charge. BMW provides 2 years of free public fast charging through Electrify America, but I haven't used that yet.
