BMW Concept iX3 EV gets official in China

13 830x536

The BMW Brilliance Automotive joint venture will produce the future series-production version of the BMW Concept iX3 in Shenyang, China.

The expansion of the iX3 range is in line with company strategy to develop emission-free vehicles and promoted driverless cars.

Among the innovations showcased in the BMW Concept iX3 is the fifth generation of BMW eDrive technology. This technology groups the electric motor, transmission, and power electronics into a new separate electric dive component.

- The Concept iX3 uses the fifth generation of BMW's eDrive technology. That means better performance, operating range, weight, packaging space, and flexibility in the auto. Of these, 12 will be equipped with fully electric propulsion systems. Now only the X1 plug-in hybrid is built in China. In the BMW Concept iX3, the next, highly integrated development stage of this technology delivers all-electric mobility. Power will be sent to both the axles.

Saturday is prescription drug take-back day
In the past, it was commonplace to just simply toss old or unwanted medications in the trash or flush them down the toilet. According to a recent national survey, 6.4 million Americans abused controlled prescription drugs.

As is so often the case, the iX3 is a concept in name only.

Talking of the looks, BMW hasn't tried to differentiate it much from the basis X3 variants. BMW plans to begin producing the iX3 in 2020 at its joint-venture plant in Shenyang and will sell the model overseas, according to partner Brilliance China Automotive Holdings. This allows the electric drivetrain to be more easily fitted in different vehicles. Plus, their modular construction enables them to be adapted to the performance levels required and the available space.

The concept is powered by a 200 kW/270 hp electric motor.

Towards the front area lies the BMW iBrand. Moreover, production of battery cell prototypes enables full analysis and understanding of the value creation processes for the cells and prepares potential suppliers for cell production according to specific requirements. BMW Group Plant Dingolfing plays a leading role here as the network's centre of expertise for electric drive systems.

Bush, the Obamas, the Clintons, and Melania Trump, and said that we ought to "frame that picture in our minds". The White House said this week he wanted to avoid disrupting the service with added security.

BMW is claiming more than 200kW output and a real-world range of 400 kilometres for its first-ever all-electric SUV.

The trademark kidney grille is filled, this time with a honeycombed material and is flanked by LED lights and air intakes in the bumper to channel air down the side of the vehicle. The thinly-veiled concept is offering up a preview of the brand's first electric SUV, which will be imported to Europe and the US from China.

When the iX3 arrives in production form, it will support 150kW fast charging, which means it will be able to charge up to 80% in less than half an hour. The energy storage system has a newly developed Charging Control Unit and is created to be hooked up to fast-charging stations generating up to 150 kW. Its signature kidney grilles are now closed to better manage airflow at the front of the vehicle while an interesting set of alloy wheels aid in reducing the turbulence caused by conventional spoked wheels. The biggest change is certainly the standard kidney grille, which has been replaced with the linked unit inspired from the iVision Dynamics Concept. The body paint is matte-finish Moonstone Silver to go with the electric nature of the crossover. The same is true of the concept's special "aerodynamically optimised" alloy wheels.

The other model now in BMW's "i" range is the i3 supermini (right). BMW is still not mentioning when their first all-electric crossover will reach the public. However, a few design details demonstrate evolution of the current design language.
