BMW has taken the wraps off two new electric models with more details being revealed about its iX zero emission SUV and a glimpse of the i4 high performance coupe.

The iX is due to be launched before the year is out and will be priced from around £69,000.

It's of similar proportions to BMW's X5 SUV and will be available in two specifications - xDrive 40 and a sportier xDrive 50.

The xDrive 40 will have a range of around 249 miles on a full charge while the xDrive 50 is said to be capable of some 373 miles.

A recharge up to 80 per cent battery capacity will take less than 40 minutes and BMW says some 75 miles of range can be added in as little as 10 minutes.

In the iXxDrive50, the drive system - which features one electric motor on the front axle and another at the rear axle - produces total output of over500hp and enables acceleration of 0 to 62 mph inunder 5.0seconds.

The xDrive40 has an output of more than 300hp giving it a 0 to 60 time in a shade over sixseconds.

The iX has an innovative set up for recharging with the plug-in point concealed behind the BMW badge on the bonnet.

BMW says the interior of the iX has a minimalist feel and its onboard computer power is around 20 times faster than that of current models.

Meanwhile, the Bavarian car maker has also revealed its new i4 all-electric Gran Coupe at the company's annual conference in Munich.

The four-door model is slated to enter the market during the course of 2021 and the line up will include a BMW M Performance model.

The BMW i4 will be available in different versions covering ranges of up to 366 miles and with a power output of up to 530 hp, it will accelerate from zero to 60 mph in around four seconds.
