The “Power of Choice” strategy allows the model to be adapted to the needs of customers and regulations around the world: the BMW X3 is the first model available with a gasoline, diesel, plug-in hybrid or fully electric engine.
Electric mobility celebrates the premiere of a BMW Model X: the First BMW iX3. The driving pleasure without local emissions is complemented by the sporty sensations that characterize all BMW, as well as the comfort, high functionality and habitability of the successful BMW X3. This is the last stage in the electrification strategy of the BMW Group; The knowledge of technology acquired during the development of the BMW i will be used for the first time in an all-electric model from the main BMW range.
In Spain the first quarter of 2021
The First BMW iX3 will be the first model of the brand that will also be produced for export at the factory in Shenyang (China). The market launch will take place in China at the end of 2020. The first units will arrive in Spain in the first quarter of 2021.
Power of Choice
Likewise, the “Power of Choice” strategy allows the model to be adapted to the needs of customers and regulations around the world. The BMW X3 is thus the first model available with a petrol, diesel, plug-in hybrid or fully electric engine.
BMW eDrive technology
In addition, the fifth generation of BMW eDrive technology starts with the new BMW iX3. It includes important advances in terms of energy density, autonomy, weight, space and flexibility. The energy density of the electric powertrain increases by 30 % over current BMW Group all-electric models; the gravimetric energy density of the battery cells has increased by 20 %. The latest versions of the electric motor, power electronics, charging technology and battery (all developed in-house) will also be fitted to the BMW iNEXT and BMW i4 from 2021.
BMW i3 vs BMW iX3
Compared to the BMW i3, the efficiency has increased significantly thanks to the integration of the powertrain. The engine, power electronics and transmission have been placed in a central unit for the first time. The fifth-generation BMW eDrive battery, with the latest cell technology and a gross energy of 80 kWh, allows a range of up to 460 kilometers under the WLTP cycle. The figure increases to 520 kilometers under the NEDC cycle. The BMW Group also monitors compliance with environmental regulations and social standards as part of its process to obtain the lithium and cobalt used in battery cells.
So the new fifth-generation BMW eDrive electric motor develops a maximum power of 210 kW / 286 hp and a maximum torque of 400 Nm. The BMW iX3 accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 6.8 seconds (comparatively, the BMW X3 xDrive30i in 6.4 seconds). Top speed is electronically limited to 180 km / h. The design principle of a permanently excited synchronous motor allows optimized power development and engineers avoid using so-called rare earths - chemical element alloys.
The different energy regeneration modes allow you to choose between the pedal response typical of BMW Group electric vehicles "one-pedal feeling" with position "B" on the gear selector, which achieves a high energy regeneration , or adaptive regeneration, which includes the inertial advance function, with the selector in the “D” position. The energy regeneration level allows you to choose three settings. Adaptive regeneration improves driving comfort and efficiency by adjusting the energy regeneration under braking and the coasting function to each driving situation.
The transfer of power to the rear wheels offers the classic BMW driving experience. The unrivaled combination of low power consumption and high load capacity enables long-distance trips at high average speed. Adaptive suspension (standard) optimizes sporty response and comfort.
BMW IconicSounds Electric
BMW IconicSounds Electric. The First BMW iX3 debuts the new sound for BMW electric models, capable of offering a more emotional driving experience. Its powerful sound is available in the optional equipment package "Impressive". It is an unmistakable composition, developed in collaboration with Hans Zimmer, which is reproduced when the engine is started and stopped.
BMW Charging Card
Tailor-made charging products and services: BMW Charging Card provides easy and convenient access to the more than 45,000 public charging points around the world; The new fast charging cable (Flexible Fast Charger), which allows the use of different plugs and different types of high-power Wallbox, is also available as an option. Custom packages offer optimal charging solutions tailored to the needs of each customer.
The new BMW digital charging services (BMW Connected Charging) in the car and via the mobile app promote electric mobility through ease of use and improve navigation planning, including recommendations for stops to charge the car. The navigation system takes into account mid-trip breaks to charge the battery and also provides detailed information about the charging points in the planning of the trip, as well as the calculation of the arrival time.
The new and optimized energy storage concept allows a charging power of up to 150 kW in direct current fast charging stations; from zero to 80 % of battery capacity in 34 minutes and a 10 minute charge, generates about 100 kilometers of autonomy (under WLTP cycle). Customers of the First BMW iX3 will be able to enjoy reduced rates at IONITY fast charging stations, depending on the country (eg € 0.29 per kWh in Germany).
The characteristic proportions of a BMW X are combined with the specific design features of this version; with innovative BMW aerodynamic light alloy wheels in a design that reduces aerodynamic drag.
Premium interior ambience with model-specific details. User-centered cabin with a high level of comfort for five people both on daily commutes and on long-distance trips; the luggage compartment capacity can be expanded from 510 to 1,560 liters by folding down the second row seats.
Inspiring vs Impressive
The “Inspiring” access equipment includes metallic paint, LED headlights, three-zone automatic climate control with preheating and preconditioning, electrically operated tailgate, panoramic sunroof, Driving Assistant Professional and ambient lighting. Likewise, the optional equipment package "Impressive" includes 20-inch alloy wheels, acoustic comfort glass, sports seats, Vernasca leather upholstery, BMW Head-Up Display, Parking Assistant Plus and sound Harman Kardon surround.
The BMW Live Cockpit Professional, with BMW Maps navigation system hosted in the cloud, and the BMW intelligent personal assistant are standard. It allows the connection and integration of the mobile phone with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Remote software update and BMW digital charging services (BMW Connected Charging) are also standard.
Sustainability throughout the value chain
Exceptional environmental credentials thanks to the commitment to sustainability throughout the value chain. The CO2 impact of the Prime BMW iX3 throughout its entire life cycle is significantly less than that of a BMW X3 xDrive20d. Likewise, the impact is reduced by a 30% when it is charged with the electricity of the European energy average. Or reduced to around 60% when using exclusively renewable energy.
Consumption BMW iX3
Combined consumption NEDC: 0.0 l / 100 km; combined electricity consumption: 17.8 - 17.5 kWh / 100 km; Combined CO2 emissions: 0 g / km; combined consumption WLTP: 0.0 l / 100 km; combined electricity consumption: 19.5 - 18.5 kWh / 100 km; Combined CO2 emissions: 0 g / km
