BMW presented in the Beijing International Salon its first 100% electric SUV, the Concept iX3, which offers the look to the future of the German brand in expanding its range of models in this area.
For BMW, the expansion of emission-free vehicles is one of its most relevant areas of centralized action, along with autonomous driving, connectivity and new digital services. Thus, he stressed that the Concept iX3 plays a "key role" in the future model that is now being developed.
The fifth generation electric motor developed for the BMW Concept iX3 generates a maximum power of more than 270 horsepower. This model-specific high-voltage battery has a net capacity of more than 70 kilowatt hours (kWh), which is enough to give the vehicle a autonomy of more than 400 kilometers in the WLTP cycle.
The joint venture BMW Brilliance Automotive will produce the future series production version of the BMW Concept iX3 in Shenyang, China.
