Yesterday’s 2018 Beijing International Automotive Exhibition, AKA Auto China 2018, was the site of more than a few automotive revelations. A new Honda Electric Vehicle, a Mercedes A-Class, and other exciting models were unveiled. Of all the vehicles revealed at Auto China 2018, none was more enthralling to the auto-community than the new BMW Concept IX3 SUV.
Many are touting the IX3 SUV as the best-looking Electric Vehicle BMW has engineered yet. Though still unreleased, when the IX3 is finally available to the public, it will offer 270 hp and a range of around 250 miles on a single charge. It does so on a 70kWh battery pack, which is smaller than electric SUV competitors like the Jaguar I-Pace and Tesla Model X. Compared to its predecessor in the evolutionary chain of BMW EVs, the I3, the IX3 represents a massive leap forward. The i3 had only a 113 mile range without needing a charge and ran on a paltry-in-comparison 33kWh battery pack. Slated to be released in 2020, the IX3 enthusiasts chomping at the bit to get their hands on this dazzling new BMW.
