New 2023 BMW X1: price, specs, and release date

April 15, 2021

The BMW X1 series has been around for a few years, but the 2023 version has undergone a major facelift, and, by all accounts, the new model will be better in many respects.

For some years, BMW has stated that it wants to develop a completely electric version of the next generation of the X1.

The redesigned X1 has had the outer and inner elements changed, including its shape, which is now slightly smaller than the previous models.

The manufacturers have made the changes to the 2023 BMW X1 so that it remains a competitor in the luxury vehicle market, but at the same time is also much cheaper than other makes, like the Mercedes, Volvo XC4, or the Audi Q3.

While still early in the development phase, the 2023 BMW X1 appears to be daring and more rugged than the older models, thanks to the upward-pointing broad shark nose grille and the cutting-edge headlights.

The only obvious change in the rear is a miniature backlight, but its shape remains to be determined.

However, most of the changes in the new 2023 BMW X1 appear to be inside and are similar to the 2 Series Active Tourer; the dashboard has been redesigned and the driver’s side double-screen is curved and more aesthetically pleasing.

More importantly, the new model appears to have included ergonomic features in the vehicle with a minimum number of physical buttons.

Like all other European manufacturers, BMW has added hybrid technology to the powertrain, which will hopefully help with fuel economy.

At the same time, the 2023 model will also have an EV and plug-in model. BMW is also updating the UKL platform, which will be compatible with the electrical powertrain and support the 2023 model.

A series of inline 3 and 2.0 liter inline -4 1.5 liters turbocharged engines with mild hybrid technology will be the standard feature.

It is anticipated that there will be two electrical versions: one with a 38 kWh Li-Ion battery that will ensure at least 140 miles electric range and a higher version with a 74 kWh, which will deliver at least a 300-mile range. 

The 1.5-liter engine will likely be available as a plug-in hybrid. Both front-wheel and all-wheel drive options will be available with 8-speed automatic transmission.

Exactly when the new 2023 BMW X1 will be launched has not been stated but perhaps in the later part of 2022. The price for the new 2023 BMW X1 will be around $64,500.
