Beijing: BMW Concept iX3

  • Say hello to the iX3, BMW's 'first' electric car

Overall, BMW gas committed to launching 12 all-electric vehicles by 2025. 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.

Under the newest fuel efficiency test cycles introduced previous year, BMW says it covered 249 miles - that's slightly short of the "up to 298 mile" distance the Jaguar I-Pace can cover between charges.

BMW - at the 2018 Beijing Motor Show - unveiled the concept of its first mass-produced electric vehicle - the BMW iX3 Concept. There are design tweaks - blanked off kidney grille and blue styling accents - but it's all still recognisably X3. Thus BMW is not dependent upon access to such materials for its electric motors.

The unparalleled technological expertise of BMW i has also played a prominent role in the development of the fifth-generation electric drive system for BMW iX3. The high-voltage battery can be charged in just 30 minutes from one of these stations.

Like the vehicle architectures and eDrive technology of the future, the BMW Group's worldwide production network is also set up to provide a high level of flexibility - in this case for the production of models with electric drive systems. This technology groups the electric motor, transmission, and power electronics into a new separate electric dive component. Other than these, there is not much else to differentiate the electric version from the internal-combustion variants.

The BMW iX3 electric SUV is the first vehicle to run on pure electric power.

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. It's an X3-sized crossover designed and sold by the company's i brand. The signature looks of BMW i cars will also mark out future models from the brand. However, a few design details demonstrate evolution of the current design language.
