BMW have unveiled the iX3 concept car at the Auto China 2018 show in Beijing.
If it makes production, it will join the i3 and i8 in BMW’s electric line-up.
The BMW Concept iX3 introduces a fifth-generation electric drive system which sees more powerful batteries along with better performance and range.
The iX3 is part of BMW’s electrification strategy to develop electric drive system technology that can be used on a number of different models. BMW Concept iX3 features a specially developed rear axle subframe and chassis integration.
The BMW Concept iX3 with the fifth-generation electric motor generates 270 hp with a range of 249 miles.
Connected to a fast-charging station, the battery can be charged in just 30 minutes.
To look at, the iX3 looks a lot like the X3 but sports BMW i design features with the closed kidney grille which reduces air resistance. The grille is highlighted with BMW i Blue accents and is also around the BMW logo, side skirts and the rear diffuser.
The iX3 concept also comes with light-alloy wheels with an aerodynamic design.
There’s no official word as yet but it’s expected the BMW iX3 will be produced in 2020.
