BMW iX3 fully electric SUV will be launched later this year

BMW has done the homologation tests required for a fully electric car in China and Europe at the same time. After more than 340 hours of various tests and over 7700 kilometres travelled, the homologation was completed in four weeks. The results have been sent to relevant authorities around the world so that the BMW iX3 electric car can be type-approved for the various markets.

The BMW iX3 fully electric SUV production starts at the BMW Brilliance factory in Shenyang, China later this summer. The BMW iX3 will be manufactured on the same production line as other BMW X3 models at the Shenyang factory. It provides both high efficiency and great flexibility in production.

The BMW iX3 was first shown as a concept car in 2018. Last winter, the prototype was tested to its fullest in the Arctic landscape in Arjeplog, Sweden, along with the prototypes of the BMW i4 and BMW iNEXT.

The BMW iX3 gets a range of over 440 km (WTLP test cycle) from a battery with 74 kWh.

The BMW iX3 fully electric SUV gets its premiere this summer. The next two fully electric models from BMW will follow next year. By 2021, BMW will then offer four widely different electric cars; BMW i3, BMW iX3, BMW i4 and BMW iNEXT.

By 2023, the BMW Group will offer at least 25 rechargeable models, at least half of which are fully electric.
