Re: This looks rather expensive

The iX looks pretty interesting, might be that some people would pay anything for one so it doesn‘t matter, can‘t wait to try one out (I‘m a Model 3 owner)..

Part of the CO2 regulations to reach zero by 2050. Up, up, up with the prices.

Re: This looks rather expensive

I thought that the third prerequisite for owning a BMW, after not being able to work the indicator, and not being able to parallel park, was not being able to count zeroes.

That's what Audis were invented for.

Yes, that's the price for the Swiss edition. It's much cheaper in Germany and indeed the rest if Europe.

Re: This looks rather expensive

Coming from the US, I don't think I will ever buy a car here unless it is an old classic I import from somewhere else. I will never get over the sticker shock - who has that kind of money for a rather dull car like that? My husband and I both make quite nice salaries and I can't imagine dropping that kind of cash on a car that loses value almost instantly ... anyway, sorry for the rant.

But at least for your 999k you get environment friendly Nickel-Iron batteries, and a powered trailer to fit them all in!

Re: This looks rather expensive

And it is a list price. Nothing ever sells for the list price, it is just a tool to make the buyer happy and proud about the "bargain" when they get 10% off.

And in 3 years, the thing comes out of the lease and costs 50% at best.

Re: This looks rather expensive

it's more likely a database issue with some garbage in the pricing field.

BMW are less generous with discounts on i models than normal ones.

Something looks wrong for sure but I don't see how it could ever be 9 mil.
