BMW Concept iX3 EV gets official in China

13 830x536

The production model will be the first BMW to use a flexible architecture that will underpin combustion engine, plug-in hybrid and battery-powered cars.

Stylistically, it's much quieter looking than i-branded models, and is basically an X3 with a slightly tweaked bodykit and a blanked-off "kidney" grille at the front. The operating area, poundage, packaging space, and flexibility come courtesy of the fresh introduction of new technologies too.

The unparalleled technological expertise of BMW i has also played a prominent role in the development of the fifth-generation electric drive system, providing further evidence of BMW i as a nerve centre for sustainable mobility. The company says: "This study of a first all-electric model from BMW is clearly defined by the robust and sophisticated all-round character of an SAV, which remains unaffected by the presence of a locally emission-free drive system".

Battlefield V Battle Royale Mode in the Works
Fortnite is a popular action-shooter video game that's now free to play and boasts more than 45 million players worldwide. The Light Machine Gun however is a Battle Royale mode exclusive, and offers a fast rate of fire and a 100-round magazine.


As is so often the case, the iX3 is a concept in name only.

The body of the vehicle is generally similar to the internal combustion X3, save for key design tweaks to show off its green credentials. The same is true of the concept's special "aerodynamically optimised" alloy wheels. Given how BMW times their launches after the premiere of a concept, it is possible that the road-going iX3 will debut in a year or two from now. Its electric motor delivers 200 kW/270 hp while its voltage battery has a net capacity of over 70 kWh, enough to give the auto a range of more than 400km. The trademark blue accents of BMW's "i" range are prominently featured. The iX3 can be plugged into a 150kw fast charger that'll complete a full charge in just 30 minutes.

BMW hasn't released photos of the interior. That grille is subtly reshaped to give it a bit more of a distinctive flavour, with a strong touch of the styling of that i Vision Dynamics concept.
