I believe BMW said "length of an X5, height of an X6, wheels of an X7," so pretty much mid-sized.

I do agree that the colors give an 80's vibe to it but what were they thinking when they designed the steering wheel?

Agree, no need to reinvent the wheel. Leather will be optional. They likely want to appeal to the vegan crowd with the suede/cloth interior.
Is it confirmed there will be an optional leather interior, or are you simply predicting? Personally I'm not so confident BMW won't mess this up with excessive wokeness and only offer vegan interior.

It could be leatherette, but this was the other interior they showed off during the reveal.

I like the styling, both inside and out. If it does deliver the 375 mile range, I'll likely make the iX my next. My initial shock at the grill seems to be subsiding the more seriously I consider it. I am not a huge fan of the Merino leather that is on my current X5, so I don't really care if it is real leather.

FWIW, the cost of the leather puts in the cars is just OK.

Right now BMW has a target range of 300 miles for EPA testing, its been quite reduced from the earlier estimates they had.

The back looks ~OK~, but the front looks squished. Dare i say those lights remind me a bit of an Alfa :S

Could definitely do with a nicer set of wheels too. Slightly bigger maybe? They look lost in there!

If BMWi can't get enough battery under that barge to get 300+ usable miles that's a real problem
