BMW iX3 electric SUV

BMW is introducing an iX3 electric SUV in Europe with a car coming from China to dealerships.

When the BMW iX3 concept vehicle was introduced in 2018, the German automaker said it will be the first electric vehicle based on its fifth generation electric powertrain technology intended to allow a longer range of electric vehicles.

The iX3 is also another first for BMW, which is manufacturing a vehicle in China and selling it to other markets – something very few automakers are doing – even though we are beginning to see a trend on that front with electric vehicle producers, such as Polestar.

BMW iX3 Specs

Earlier this year, BMW confirmed the iX3 requirements. The 80-kilowatt-hour battery pack of the BMW iX3—74 kWh of which is usable — offers a range of 460 kilometers (286 miles) using generous WLTP test numbers. That possibly corresponds to around 200 miles of real-world driving.

The battery pack is fitted with a 210 kW/286 hp electric motor with a maximum torque of 400 Nm (295 lb-ft). Acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h [62 mph] in 6.8 seconds.
