BMW's iX3 concept heralds electric expansion

BMW Unveils Electric SUV as Its First Planned Export From China

The Concept iX3 packs a single electric motor that delivers 270 hp, with the engine being packed alongside the transmission and the power control units inside a compact modular unit.

That figure places it on par with the Jaguar I-Pace unveiled in Geneva last month and the Audi e-tron quattro we'll see before the end of the year.

In the electric jungle of i's and e's, the iX3 is unusual for being an electric version of a familiar model rather than the bespoke, standalone creations favoured by rivals. The two-pronged offensive of the i3 hatchback and i8 sports auto certainly capture people's attention, but technology and demand of electric vehicles is marching on. The company also promises progress in automated driving, connectivity and digital services, which are being developed under the umbrella banner "iNext". These styling cues provide a striking contrast against the Moonstone Silver matt exterior paint finish. Also, the BMW iX3 Concept can be seen with several blue highlights and a charging point, which is fitted behind the left side front wheel arch. "This offers the opportunity to equip models of all our brands with various powertrains", BMW said. The iX3 is certainly going to be an exciting product from BMW. The grille, side skirts, and diffuser lend the main accents to the body of the vehicle. It has a more powerful battery that offers better performance and range combined with lower weight and volume. Also, its new electric motor can be manufactured without using any rare earth metals. That means a range of 400 km on one charge, according to BMW. A claimed net power capacity of more than 70kWh is said to be enough for a 400km range or more - that's 249 miles, based on WLTP testing. With the fast-charging stations generating up to 150kW, it can be fully charged in just 30 minutes, says BMW.

The BMW Brilliance Automotive joint venture will produce the future series-production version of the BMW Concept iX3 in Shenyang, China. The closed double kidney with the blue accentuation continues the BMW i Vision Dynamics brand already featured in the BMW i Vision Dynamics.
