BMW iX vs. Tesla Model Y: Ease of Ownership

With a high-tech electric vehicle such as the BMW iX or Tesla Model Y, it is essential that you have easy access to state-of-the-art maintenance and repair services. This will be a problem if you drive a Tesla Model Y, as there is only one Tesla service center in the entire Midwest. With a BMW iX, on the other hand, you’ll have no problem finding professional EV service at local BMW dealerships like BMW of Peoria.

Worried about the availability of charging stations? There is an extensive EV charging infrastructure already in place throughout the Midwest. In addition, the BMW iX infotainment system can help you find the nearest charging station, whether you’re cruising the streets of Galesburg or heading out on an extended road trip.
