BMW’s electric iX3 SUV is on course to hit the market at the end of 2020.
The car is being built at BMW’s China factory at its BMW Brilliance Automotive joint venture facility.
The homologation process has been completed both for the Chinese market and for the European market.
The new iX3 adds a further fully-electric vehicle to the BMW Group portfolio that will not only tap into new customer groups, but also arrives on the market at a time when demand for electric vehicles is expanding significantly.
The BMW X3 is the brand’s first model available with both conventional petrol and diesel engines, a plug-in hybrid system or a pure electric drive train.
Expected range is around 270 miles.
Robert Küssel, plant director at BBA Dadong where the iX3 and X3 will be produced, said:
“We are producing the fully-electric BMW iX3 and the ICE BMW X3 on the same production line. This enables us to achieve high efficiency and flexibility in production.”
