Quad-Motor Electric iX3M And iX4M EV rumored to be on the way

According to InsidEVs...
"through one of the Bavarian automakers’ parts suppliers, we learned that the two hot electric SUVs may be revealed as early as next year."

I'm gonna miss the exhaust sound. Wish they would have done hybrid first.

Don't worry BMW are experts about piping the sound through your speakers.

They should work on bringing a cheaper electric SUV to the US first in my opinion, especially since we don't get the iX1 or iX3.

Personally, when it comes down to it, I prefer sound to speed. I'd honestly take a slow-rolling B48 with FI exhaust over an EV that does 0-60 in 1.8 seconds.

Wish they would do this in the X5 and X7 first, but I guess they’ll be using the XM setup in those models before they do

Exactly. Maybe we’ll see solar panel performance packages for EV’s
Not downing the fact that EV’s will have their place.

It's weird. Previously it used to be a big deal chasing that extra 0.1 seconds in the 0-60 or 1/4 mile. Sounds used to matter. Reliability used to matter. Looks used to matter. Soon enough a base electric Kia will do 0-60 in 2.5 seconds and a iM3 will do it in 1.8. Somehow it doesn't sound as exciting.
