BMW iX3 is the first Sports Activity Vehicle with an all-electric drive system Fully electric mobility celebrates its premiere in a BMW X model – the new BMW iX3 (fuelconsumption combined in theNEDC test cycle: 0.0 l/100 km;
electric power consumption combined: 17.8 – 17.5 kWh/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 0 g/km; fuel consumption combined in the WLTP test cycle: 0.0 l/100 km; electric power consumption combined: 19.5 – 18.5 kWh/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 0 g/km).
New iX3 will be the brand’s first model to also be produced for export at the Shenyang manufacturing facility in China. Market launch will begin in China later in 2020 and is the first model to be available with a petrol or diesel engine, plug-in hybrid drive system or all-electric drive system.
The all-electric BMW iX3 is available to order in the UK. Prices start from £61,900 for the entry-level Premier Edition, and climb to £64,900 for the flagship Premier Edition Pro model. As such, the EV isn’t eligible for the Government’s £3,000 plug-in vehicle grant.
First deliveries for the new BMW iX3 are expected to arrive during summer next year
Latest versions of the electric motor, power electronics, charging technology and high-voltage battery (all developed in-house) will also be deployed in the BMW iNEXT and BMW i4 from 2021.
Efficiency boosted significantly compared with the BMW i3 by highly integrated drive system technology. Electric motor, power electronics and transmission arranged in a central housing for the first time.
Fifth-generation BMW eDrive high-voltage battery with the latest battery cell technology and gross energy content of 80 kWh enables operating range of up to 460 kilometres [285 miles] in the statutory new WLTP test cycle (up to 520 kilometres [323 miles] in the NEDC test cycle).
Adaptive recuperation enhances driving comfort and efficiency by adjusting Brake Energy Regeneration and the coasting function to the driving situation at hand.
Optimised energy storage concept now enables vehicle charging capacity of up to 150 kW at DC fast-charging stations; Recharging from 0 to 80 per cent of the high-voltage battery’s capacity takes 34 minutes, 10-minute charge adds 100 kilometres [62 miles] of range (WLTP).
BMW iX3 customers enjoy particularly favourable tariffs at IONITY fast-chargingstations with a consumption dependent component of e.g. €0.29 per kWh for Germany).
New digital services from BMW Connected Charging in the car and via the app promote user-friendly electric mobility and enhance navigation planning, including recommendations for charging stops.
