BMW Canada has announced two new electrifying additions to their all-electric vehicle family, the i4 and the iX.

OpenRoad in Vancouver, which revealed the two models at a special event this week, expects the new additions to be hot items.

If the pre-sale numbers are any indication, these cars will likely be in heavy demand.

These cars represent the future of BMW.

The iX is a brand-new model from the German automaker. Considered an SAV, or Sports Activity Vehicle, the iX is fully electric and a technological marvel.

Featuring the latest in vehicle upgrades, like automated driving and other digital services, the tech focuses on locally emission-free driving pleasure.

Both vehicles are expected to begin retailing in Canada in March of 2022.

The company launched its “i” brand of vehicles over 10 years ago, which introduced a new fleet of hybrid and fully electric vehicles.
