RETHINKING DESIGN WITH THE BMW iX
Generously proportioned surfaces and characteristic lines give the BMW iX its uniquely monolithic shape. Every detail blends seamlessly into the modern design language and gives the vehicle an appearance of being created from a single mould. The aerodynamic design of the panels was decisive in achieving the outstanding cd value of 0.25, along with specific features, such as the window outline that tapers towards the rear, known as the "Streamflow". For the first time, flush handles and frameless doors appear on a BMW SAV – revealing its pioneering spirit.

BMW iX SHY TECH CONCEPT
The Shy Tech concept focuses on the passengers and allows the modern technology in the BMW iX to blend into the background until needed or explicitly desired. This invisible intelligence can be experienced in many details of the exterior and interior – such as the kidney grille, which functions as an intelligent surface and houses camera technology, radar functions, state-of-the-art sensor technology and heating elements. Other examples include the invisibly embedded speakers of the audio system and the minimalist button design for the interior.
