The battery pack options will be 63 kWh, 92 kWh and 103 kWh, plus a i6S version with a 115 kWh battery.

According to Automobilemag, the upcoming BMW iNEXT (scheduled for 2021) will be available as the i6 in three battery/powertrain versions priced between €72,000 and €110,000 before options.

Rumors say that the battery pack capacity will be 63 kWh, 92 kWh or 103 kWh or even 115 kWh if there is a special i6S version. The expected range of 285-375 miles (459-603 km) seems to be on par with the over 600 km (372 miles) of WLTP range announced previously by BMW.
