The future of the automotive industry passes through renewable energies and, more specifically, through electric propulsion systems. The BMW Group is consistently pursuing its electrification strategy and will launch the new BMW iX3 on the market at the end of 2020. The homologation tests were successfully concluded and by the end of summer the first electric BMW 100% model produced in China will be launched on the new global market.
For the moment, it seems that hybrid models stand out as the most interesting formula to carry out the transition from hydrocarbons to electric batteries. Thus, this BMW iX3 has more than 340 hours of testing, including more than 7,700 kilometers of tests that had to be completed in just four weeks.
The BMW Concept iX3 is an electric off-road vehicle that clears any questions about it. The electric car is based on the successful BMW X3 and combines the versatility and robust functionality of a premium mid-size sports activity vehicle with innovative driving technology for local emission-free driving pleasure. The BMW X3 is the first model of the brand available with conventional gasoline and diesel engines, a plug-in hybrid system or a pure electric drive train being an off-road vehicle that exhibits two data that stand out in its technical section: a power of 270 hp and a range of up to 400 km. The charging speed that is estimated for this 150kW model will take 30 minutes to fully recharge the batteries.
This 'The Power of Choice' approach enables the company to respond to the different needs and wishes of its customers around the world and maximize its impact on reducing global CO2 emissions.
An explosive cocktail that has not gone unnoticed in the mainstream media since its presentation at the Beijing Auto Show and that will continue to fill minutes and pages in the coming months.
Although its launch is expected in 2021, the first images of BMW's new electric SUV have generated considerable expectation.
In short, a commitment to moving towards sustainable 100% formulas while preserving the best of the past. The BMW iX3 will be an eco-friendly car even in the manufacturing process. From BMW, special emphasis has been placed on ensuring that the necessary components for the batteries and the rest of the electrical systems gain in cleanliness compared to other prototypes.
Of course, the design has not been left out of the main concerns during the development of the new electric car.
