  • Say hello to the iX3, BMW's 'first' electric car

BMW previewed the expansion of full-electric cars into its core product lineup with the iX3 concept at the auto show here. The official unveiling is today and we have several images of the concept vehicle to gander at and it looks very good. And so a Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) once again blazes a trail for a new and groudbreaking form of BMW's fabled driving pleasure.

The iX3 is powered by a 266bhp electric motor, and showcases BMW's future electric architectures, that which will be front-wheel-drive, rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive. Assuming BMW continues to offer X-range models four-wheel drive, there's potential for a dual-motor set-up to be employed, which means 532bhp could be possible.

Timberwolves sink Rockets 121-105 in Game 3
Harden had a frightful shooting performance in Game 2 (2-of-18 from the floor), but Paul starred with 27 points and eight assists. The Rockets will need Gordon - or another breakout performance from Gerald Green - in order to reclaim control of this series.

The Concept iX3 highlights the fifth generation of BMW eDrive technology. By condensing things like the electric motor and transmission into one component it allows for greater flexibility inside various chassis.

Also, the batteries are much more potent this time around. That means better performance, operating range, weight, packaging space, and flexibility in the auto.

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

According to BMW, 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. Meanwhile, BMW has also promised a non-SUV i4 model for the same year - it's rumoured to take design cues from the Vision Dynamics concept that was shown at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. The closed area within the kidney reduces air resistance, providing aerodynamic benefits. These styling cues provide a striking contrast against the Moonstone Silver matt exterior paint finish. The same is true of the concept's special "aerodynamically optimised" alloy wheels.
