BMW iX3 concept unveiled at Beijing Motor Show

BMW shares teaser video for its new iX3 SUV

BMW says that the Concept iX3 has a 270hp electric motor and a WLTP range of over 249 miles. BMW eDrive technology today already is part of the plug-in hybrid drive system employed by the BMW iPerformance models and MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4. All of which draw power from a newer battery which is more compact - and more powerful, too.

BMW said in the future it would look to build pure combustion engines, plug-in hybrid systems and battery electric solutions that could be fitted across all and in any of its models.

Confused? Well, forget all the nomenclature, it's an electric version of BMW's big-selling and critically-lauded X3 and that should be good enough for now. The high-voltage battery in the EV has a new capacity of over 70 kWh.

In the front, the kidney and the brand emblem show the affiliation with the BMW i brand. According to unofficial data, the total capacity of electric power plant iX3 will be 270 HP Without recharging the vehicle can travel up to 400 km. auto is available For Express charging, which replenishes 80% of the battery in 30 minutes.

Apart from the reshaped kidney grille and blue highlights, the iX3 gets less ventilation from the front for a smoother nose, the sills and rear diffuser get a tweak (a blue tweak at that) and there's a set of slippery lightweight wheels, so if this iX3 Concept is anything to go by then BMW's future electric models are going to be remarkably similar to their ICE counterparts. These styling cues provide a striking contrast against the Moonstone Silver matt exterior paint finish. However, a few design details demonstrate evolution of the current design language. 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 under the skin.
