The new BMW iX3 represents the next stage in the group’s electrification strategy and is the first core model to feature the technological expertise that has been amassed from the previous i models.
The new model features the fifth-generation BMW eDrive high-voltage battery technology which generates 80kWh of energy to provide a mileage range of up to 285 miles. The newly-designed electric motor produces a maximum output of 285hp, peak torque of 400nm and a 0-62mph acceleration time of just 6.8 seconds.
BMW IconicSounds Electric makes its debut in the iX3. This is a newly developed soundscape for electrically powered BMW models and adds extra emotional depth to the driving experience.
The BMW Charging Card provides simple and convenient access to over 30,000 public charge points in the UK. The new flexible fast charger and high-output wallbox are optional extras that will provide the optimum charging solution. Recharging from 0-80% takes 34 minutes and a 10 minute charge adds 62 miles of range.
There are a few new features on the BMW iX3 above the standard X3 model, including the new aerodynamic 19” alloys with a drag-reducing design. Standard specification on the new model includes metallic paintwork, LED headlights, three-zone automatic climate control with pre‑heating and pre-conditioning, automatic tailgate operation, panoramic glass sunroof, Driving Assistant Professional and ambient lighting.
