The New BMW Concept iX325/04/2018
Introducing the future, BMW Concept iX3
Electric mobility arrives at the core of BMW.
BMW’s newest addition to the i range has been unveiled this week. The new iX3 Concept is the latest model from the leaders in the field of electric mobility. It will be the first car from the BMW brand to be driven purely by electric power and will be a fully-fledged Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) – and without compromises when it comes to functionality and comfort.
Fifth Generation eDrive Technology
The iX3 Concept features the innovative fifth generation of BMW eDrive technology. A key benefit of this electric drive technology of the future is the grouping together of the electric motor, transmission and power electronics within a new, separate electric drive component.
The fifth generation electric drive also includes new and more powerful batteries. This fresh package of technology brings considerable advances in terms of performance characteristics, operating range, weight, packaging space and flexibility – and will be making its debut in the purely electrically-driven SAV.
The iX3 Concept will showcase a 200kW/270hp electric motor and a WLTP range of more than 249 miles (400 Kilometres). It represents another milestone on the road to locally emission-free driving under the BMW Group’s electrification strategy.
Electric mobility also means a differentiation in design.
Identifying features of the BMW Concept iX3 include a closed-off BMW kidney grille with familiar BMW i car graphic, BMW i Blue accents around the kidney, around the brand logo at the front and along the side skirts, and a diffuser element in the same colour integrated in the rear apron. These styling cues provide a striking contrast against the Moonstone Silver matt exterior paint finish. The concept study is also fitted with light-alloy wheels in an aerodynamically optimised design.
