The tanks have a total capacity of 16 pounds.  They feed the under-hood fuel cell stack paired with a rear mounted electric motor and battery.  The vehicle has just entered production and a small number will be on streets around the world for more testing in 2023. BMW says it will put a much larger number into production in the second half of this decade.  The iX5 is considered the precursor of future BMW hydrogen powered vehicles.
