BMW is expanding

 its lineup of electric vehicles once again.

The iX1 SUV is an

 all-electric variant of the X1 crossover — BMW announced a third-gen edition

The iX1 is pegged as an

entry-level model that's expected to supplant the i3 as the automaker's least expensive EV.

The company says

the X1 will have two petrol and two diesel engine options when it arrives in October.

Those variants

 "will immediately be followed by" the iX1 xDrive30, along with plug-in hybrid versions.

The iX1 will have

 a dual-motor powertrain with one on each axle.

They'll produce a

 combined output of 313 horsepower and 364 lb-ft of torque.
