BMW iX3 Concept With 400km Range Shown At Beijing Motor Show
Say hello to the iX3, BMW's 'first' electric car
25 April, 2018, 16:09
BMW is busy developing their first all-electric crossover, the X3 electric, for quite some time now.
The BMW iX3 will arrive in 2020, a bit behind the curve as the Jaguar I-Pace is already on sale and Audi's e-tron and Mercedes' EQ C are about to arrive. Unlike competitors, BMW is able to do entirely without the use of rare earths such as neodymium, typically needed in electric motors for their unique magnetic properties.
While the iX3, now on display at the Beijing motor show, won't be the brand's first all-electric model, it signals further integration of fully-electrified powertrains into BMW's model range. The technology helps in more powerful and denser batteries, thus saving on weight.
The iX3 Concept comes with the fourth-generation BMW battery pack, which delivers y0 kWh and is set to offer north of 250 miles per charge. "This offers the opportunity to equip models of all our brands with various powertrains", BMW said.
With the world premiere of the BMW Concept iX3, the BMW Group is opening a new chapter in its electrification strategy. In turn, the hybrids can drive exclusively on electric up to 100 km.
However, the remainder of the design is still very much in the ilk of the popular family SUV. This allows the electric drivetrain to be more easily fitted in different vehicles. Initial production will be for the local market in China, but ultimately the Chinese plant will be the sole supplier of iX3's globally. Its electric motor delivers 200 kW/270 hp while its voltage battery has a net capacity of over 70 kWh, enough to give the vehicle a range of more than 400km. An enlarged kidney grille, that's filled in to improve aero efficiency, dominates the front fascia which has smaller air inlets and smoother surfacing, too, compared to the mainstream BMW X3. Meanwhile, BMW has also promised a non-SUV i4 model for the same year - it's rumoured to take design cues from the Vision Dynamics concept that was shown at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. The body paint is matte-finish Moonstone Silver to go with the electric nature of the crossover. Finally, light alloy wheels exist at the base.
