2021 BMW iX teased; 500 PS electric SUV coming to Malaysia 01

BMW Malaysia has teased the 2021 BMW iX, which suggests the introduction of the electric SUV (BMW uses the term SAV) here. The BMW iX is comparable with the BMW X5 in length and width, and is almost the same height as the BMW X6.

Despite being an electric car, the BMW iX features the famous (infamous?) vertical kidney grille. Whether beautiful or not, it certainly gives a visual impact.
