BMW iX3 Goes On Sale By The End Of 2020

As BMW is restarting it’s production in its plant in China. One model that will be produce in the plant is the upcoming BMW iX3. The BMW iX3 is expected to reach the market by the end of 2020.

The BMW iX3 is the brand’s first pure electric model, intended for global markets. According to BMW, testing and homologation have been completed successfully. It is the first time BMW has completed the entire homologation process for a fully electric model in China and Europe at the same time. The oompleted test saw more than 340 hours of testing and 7700 kilometers of driving.

The unveiling of the production iX3 has been scheduled for late second quarter. As demand for EVs increase the world over, the  iX3 is based on the globally successful BMW X3 and combines the versatility and robust functionality of a premium mid-size Sports Activity Vehicle with ground-breaking drive technology for emission-free driving.

The iX3 already comes with fifth-generation BMW eDrive technology, including a drive unit with the electric engine, power electronics and transmission highly integrated into a central housing. This significantly reduces the installation space and mass of the drive technology relative to output and offers added flexibility for installing new electric powertrain components in different vehicle derivatives. The fifth-generation electric drive train also includes new and more powerful high-voltage batteries. Thanks to their scalable, modular design, these can be used flexibly in the respective vehicle architecture and at the respective production locations.

With a range of around 440 kilometers in the WLTP test cycle (preliminary data), the iX3 paves the way for BMW eDrive technology, which will also be used in BMW i4 and BMW iNEXT models from 2021 on.
