IX3 concept blazes trail for electrified core BMWs

11 830x618

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.

The reveal of the BMW iX3 Concept marks a shift in the German marque's electrification strategy, as it plans to release a line of all-electric models, starting with the iX3, from 2020.

"The BMW Concept iX3 underscores the BMW Group's resolve to further strengthen its leading position in the field of electric mobility, " BMW said.

Competitors of the auto will be the Audi E-tron, Mercedes and Jaguar C EQ I-Pace.

Blue accents - a common trait across BMW's i3 and i8 models - appear across the vehicle, contrasting with the matte Moonstone Silver paint finish.

The court that denied Moody's request Wednesday was the same one his victim was a member of almost 30 years ago. Two other mail bombs were later intercepted and defused, including one at an NAACP office in Jacksonville, Fla.

Called BMW Wireless Charging, it's available now as an option for the BMW 530e iPerformance plug-in hybrid sedan. This vehicle is part of the BMW NUMBER ONE NEXT strategy. This means that any newly launched model could be offered in conventionally fuelled, hybrid and electric form.

Lighter alloy wheels feature, and help to aid efficiency, resulting in the iX3 having an electric range of 249 miles - a mile more than Audi's new e-tron electric SUV. The design of the iX3 is such that it is very compact. BMW has finally offered details of this new generation of electronic drive systems. The grille, side skirts, and diffuser lend the main accents to the body of the vehicle. The closed double kidney with the blue accentuation continues the BMW i Vision Dynamics brand already featured in the BMW i Vision Dynamics. Key to this - and, indeed, central to BMW's plan of offering an all-electric option across its entire vehicle range - is an integrated module that contains a 266bhp motor, gearbox and operating electronics in a single compact unit.

The concept is powered by a 200 kW/270 hp electric motor.

BMW has stated that a production version of the iX3 SUV will be ready for sale by 2020.

In the front, the kidney and the brand emblem show the affiliation with the BMW i brand.
