BMW Concept iX3 revealed at 2018 Auto Shanghai

13 830x536 Say hello to the iX3, BMW's 'first' electric car

Powering the iX3 is a fifth-generation eDrive powertrain, which BMW claims features more powerful and lighter batteries that will extend the range while sapping less juice with extra weight. This grille will be the new signature for all future BMW Concepts but it won't make it to the production model of the iX3.

The changes are far more pronounced under the surface, where the iX3 showcases BMW's next generation of EV technology.

BMW isn't the only carmarker to jump on the electric bandwagon. In turn, the hybrids can drive exclusively on electric up to 100 km. The thinly-veiled concept is offering up a preview of the brand's first electric SUV, which will be imported to Europe and the USA from China. And the BMW ActiveHybrid X6 presented in 2009 was the world's first Sports Activity Coupe with a full-hybrid drive system. The version of the fifth-generation electric motor developed for the SAV generates maximum output of over 200 kW/270 hp. Entirely electric, it's powered by an electric motor that draws electricity from a 70-kWh battery pack which stores enough juice for about 250 miles of range in the European testing cycle.

The high-voltage battery is assisted with eDrive technology meaning it can be fully charged in 30 minutes at fast-charging stations.

Gronkowski (the horse) experiences a 'minor setback'
I just have a hard time envisioning that, to be candid", Gotham Chopra, the director of Facebook's "Tom v. Gronkowski also said he would not be attending Patriots optional workouts, which started last week.

Electric mobility also means a differentiation in design. There are design tweaks - blanked off kidney grille and blue styling accents - but it's all still recognisably X3. Meanwhile, BMW has also promised a non-SUV i4 model for the same year - it's rumoured to take design cues from the Vision Dynamics concept that was shown at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. The closed area within the kidney reduces air resistance, providing aerodynamic benefits. The body paint is matte-finish Moonstone Silver to go with the electric nature of the crossover.

The BMW iX3 electric SUV is also equipped with aerodynamically optimised wheels shod with low rolling resistance tyres. It's an X3-sized crossover designed and sold by the company's i brand.

The other model now in BMW's "i" range is the i3 supermini (right).

The electric drive will be visible through the design elements from the BMW i design language in the exterior design mentioned above.
