The Concept iX3
We are pleased to make he announcement that BMW has released its first preview of the first all-electric SAV: the concept iX3. Not only is this vehicle going to be the first all- electric SAV, but it will be the first model by the brand to be solely driven by electric power. The model will include the fifth generation of BMW eDrive technology which will include new and more powerful batteries. This technology comes along with a number of upgrades in terms of performance characteristics, operation range, weight, and space. On one full charge, the range will be right around the 250 mile mark. What’s even more impressive is that the battery will charge approximately 80% in under 30 minutes.
With the differentiation into the electric world comes a difference in design. The concept iX3 will include a closed off BMW kidney grille. However, the kidney grille will be accompanied by BMW i brand accentuation. This includes the blue accents as well as the brand logo in the front and along the side skirts of the vehicle. This signature look for the BMW i brand will be a foundation for future BMW models. Speaking of future models, BMW plans to release 12 new all-electric models by 2025. That means that the iX3 is only the beginning.
