BMW Australia has lowered the pricing for the entry-level variant of its iX electric car range, while simultaneously increasing pricing for the top spec model.
While all four variants of BMW iX have had pricing shifted by $5000, the iX xDrive40 and xDrive40 Sport have had pricing dropped by that amount, while the iX xDrive50 Sport and high-performance iX M60 are up by $5000.
This means the range now starts at $130,900 before on-road costs and tops out at $233,400.
The xDrive40 variants boast a 240kW/630Nm output as it is, but the xDrive50 has a much more potent 385kW/765Nm drivetrain, while the M60 has a huge 455kW/1100Nm.
“We have repositioned the BMW iX xDrive40 in our line-up and are delighted to offer both variants at a revised price point,” a BMW Australia spokesperson told CarsGuide.
Its entry point is now clear of the Audi e-Tron, with the Bavarian undercutting the $146,075 Audi by more than $10,000.
Both models, as well as the similarly-sized Jaguar I-Pace EV400, will have been affected by changed to the LCT which increased the taxable threshold for low-emission and electric cars - hybrids and EVs - which means premium electric cars have mostly benefited from price drops.
